Khadar was very strong (Class 20) even for a member of the People. His thick skin provided him with good invulnerability. He was a good hand-to-hand combatant and also used his tail as an additional weapon during combat. His talons could rip metal.
Khadar was a Prime Warrior among his brothers. He was respected and well-considered for his skill and strength in combat. Khadar and other lizard warriors intervened to defend their territory against the tanks sent by the US Army in the New Mexico desert. They overpowered the soldiers, destroyed the tanks and captured Colonel Butler.
A few hours after the end of the battle, Khadar was still hiding in the debris of the battlefield when a policeman and a woman arrived on the scene. Khadar succeeded in capturing the policeman, Sergeant Whitmore, but had to fight with the woman, a warrior named Ms. Marvel. The battle was fierce and hard, and Khadar found out that the woman was much stronger than the humans he had met before. Eventually, extraordinarily for the lizards, Khadar lost the fight. Ms. Marvel was nevertheless captured by Heamon and taken to the lizard's subterranean town. However, Ms. Marvel defeated the Guardian, a giant serpent, and convinced Aracht'yr to let the human prisoners go free, although the prisoners' memories were scrambled by Heamon's telepathic powers.
One of the prisoners was a Dire Wraith in disguise who took her sisters to the People's town. The Wraiths slew the lizards but some of them hid and survived. Khadar was among the survivors but his children had been killed.
The surviving lizards became exiles. They learnt of the existence of the Savage Land where dinosaurs still lived. Under C'rel's leadership, they started a long journey to southern Argentina in an effort to reach the Savage Land in Antarctica. There, they met the X-Men. Khadar didn't trust the humans but accepted to follow his leader, C'rel. The X-Men helped the lizards to cross Drake Passage to reach the Savage Land.
During the crossing, Brainchild caused an unnatural cataclysm that forced the group to split into three. The third group of lizards, including Khadar, were deceived by Brainchild so that they could be used in his war against the United Tribes and the world. Meanwhile, C'rel and her group were accepted in the Savage Land by the Council of the United Tribes, whose members included evolved dinosaurs.
Brainchild's rebel Saurian troops attacked, helped by Khadar. Khadar and his brothers rode a herd of T-Rex against the humans, but the humans were able to hold back the attack with help from the X-Men. Khadar saw C'rel among the humans but believed she was a prisoner. Beast had to knock him down but C'rel and the X-Men convinced Khadar to cease fighting. Two of the divided groups of lizards eventually reunited, and Khadar and Delage shook hands as a symbol of peace.
Later, Brainchild again attacked the United Tribes, flanked by his Mutates and a transformed Storm. Leash controlled the minds of Khadar, the lizards of the People and Saurians, preventing them from intervening, but eventually Sage succeeded in knocking her down. Once free, the lizards led by Khadar attacked Brainchild's lair. Khadar, free from the mind-control, was full of rage and was ready to slay all the Mutates as well as the humans, but Bishop stopped him. The Mutates were captured and finally the lizards of the People were accepted in the Savage Land.
