First Appearance (Additional Details): (seen) Superman (vol. 1) #668 (Early Dec. 2007): "The Third Kryptonian, Part One: The Hunt"; (named) Superman (vol. 1) #670 (Jan. 2008): "The Third Kryptonian, Part Three: The Stand"
Number of Appearances: 2
Worked for: Amalak
Note: part of Amalak's anti-Kryptonian crew
An unnamed alien with gray skin and a ridged face is first seen as part of Amalak's crew in panel 3 on page 1 in Superman #668. The alien, whose name is apparently revealed in a later issue to be "Revekk," is part of a mercenary crew who accompany Amalak on his mission to kill all surviving Kryptonians in the galaxy. The alien speaks no lines of dialogue and is seen only in this one panel in this issue.
The ridge-faced alien is seen again in a few panels in Superman #670 when he is part of the battle between Amalak and his crew against all the Kryptonians of Earth, including Power Girl and Supergirl.
On page 13 in Superman #670 Amalak has captured Superman. Amalak put a device called an "enervator" on Superman's head. The uses red sun radiation to prevent Superman from accessing his super powers. But Amalak is just getting started in his quest for vengeance against all Kryptonians. He wants to use a device that will tear through Superman's memories. In panel 5 on page 13, Amalak shouts an order to one of an off-panel mercenary underling: "Revekk -- fetch the brain-ripper!"
In the next panel - panel 1 on page 14 -- we see Amalak using the brain-ripper on the captive Superman. Behind hims stand his principal lieutenant, Talam-Sa, as well as the ridge-faced alien. The ridge-face alien is apparently the one who brought Amalak the brain-ripper, which would mean that his name is Revekk.
On page 17 of this story (page 68 in the Superman: The Third Kryptonian trade paperback), Amalak still has Superman captive in the hero's South American Fortress of Solitude. Supergirl and Power Girl have defeated the alien mercenaries who targeted them and are on their way to help Superman out. The ridge-faced alien (Revekk) can be seen behind fellow mercenary Talam-Sa in panel 1 on page 17. Panel 2 focuses only on the ridge-face alien, who looks up and says, "Um . . . subcommander? Anyone else hear that sound from out--"
The ridge-faced alien's question is interrupted when Supergirl and Power Girl burst through the wall and confront the alien attackers.
The ridge-faced alien can be seen standing slightly behind his boss Amalak in panel 1 on the next page, as Amalak and his crew face off against a now-freed Superman, who is flanked by Supergirl, Power Girl, and Krypto.
The combined might of these Kryptonian heroes defeats the alien mercenaries fairly quickly. During the battle, Revekk can be seen getting socked by Supergirl in panel 1 on page 21 (page 72 in the trade paperback). His unconscious body is seen stacked with the other fallen mercenaries in panel 3 on page 22.
