Grab a refresher on the incredible Inhuman canine companion!

Coming soon to IMAX and ABC, Marvel’s Inhumans will see the live-action on-screen debut of Lockjaw—the Marvel Universe’s favorite four-legged Royal companion. In preparation for the new series, here’s a quick primer on who—or maybe what—Lockjaw is.

Standing over five feet tall and weighing in at half a ton, the giant pup made his debut nearly six decades ago in 1965’s FANTASTIC FOUR #45. Crafted by legendary duo Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the issue also saw the first appearance of fellow Inhumans Black Bolt, Karnak, Triton, and Crystal.

What is Marvel Unlimited?

Born on the island of Attilian, contact with the Terrigen Mist endowed the K-9 with a few superhuman (or superdoggie) skills—most uniquely, the ability to teleport himself and others across dimensions.

Lockjaw’s capacity to leap across dimensional space allows him to serve as the Inhuman Royal family’s escort and usual mode of transportation; when Lockjaw engages this power, all those standing in close proximity to, or touching, the Inhuman hound are transported alongside him. In addition to teleportation, Lockjaw has the ability to track scents across dimensions by utilizing both an incredible sense of smell—and a mysterious understanding of psionics. Much like the Inhuman King Blackbolt, Lockjaw has two antennae atop his head that he uses to channel and control these powers.
