For the Flash villain, see Ringmaster.

Professor Naxim Tork (born 1608/1609), also known under the aliases The Ringmaster and Alien King, is an alien poacher and trafficker who went after Kara Zor-El in 2009.


Naxim Tork was born sometime around 1608 or 1609. At some point, he began running his own (failing) cosmic menagerie, becoming a known poacher and alien trafficker.

Sometime after this. Naxim discovered that there was a Kryptonian on the planet Earth; given that the planet Krypton was destroyed, he felt that finding this person would allow him to have a unique specimen. However, when he went to Metropolis to capture Kal-El, he failed.[1]

Original timeline

On May 26th, 2009, upon discovering another Kryptonian on Earth, Naxim felt that it was his destiny to have one for himself. Tork, along with his crew mate Mitch, searched for the Kryptonian in Midvale, but was unsuccessful in capturing her.

Three days later, Tork travelled to Uruguay, where he was captured by the D.E.O..

Current timeline

As a result of Querl Dox and Nia Nal time-travelling to 2009, the timeline was altered. On May 26th, 2009, while searching for Kara Zor-El, he also identified Querl and Nia as being aliens, before adding them to his menagerie.

At some point following the capture of Querl and Nia, Tork then successfully captured Kara Zor-El, and was then able to evade capture by the D.E.O.[1]

  • Extended Longevity: While unknown if an aspect of his race or unique to him, Naxim apparently ages much slower than humans. At over 400 years old, he is still in his physical prime.
