Physical appearance[]

Lucas Carr is a Caucasian male with brown hair and bangs, which cover most of his forehead. He also has blue eyes and a soul patch beneath his lower lip. His normal attire is composed of collared shirts underneath a jacket, in addition to blue jeans, shoes, and a belt.

By 2018, his soul patch had grown into a full beard. It was shaved off in 2020.


Early life[]

Lucas Carr went to Happy Harbor High School.[4] In his teens, Snapper was an associate of the Justice League, having met them during their first adventure,[5] and had full access to Mount Justice. His carelessness, however, led to the discovery of the Cave by the Joker[6] in 2006.[7] After invading the cave and subduing Carr, Joker set a trap for the League: a large surprise giftbox. When Flash went to open it, it burst open with monkey clowns. Carr was desperate to help and make up for his error, and tried to fight the Joker against Batman's protest, but was easily taken down by the clown. The exact resolution of the encounter is unknown, but Carr and the Leaguers all survived.[8]

Years later, Snapper Carr became a civics[9] teacher at Happy Harbor High School.[10]

When the Reach's Magnetic Field Disruptors (MFDs) threatened Earth with destruction, Snapper Carr was pressed into service by the Justice League. After the heroes agreed on a course of action, Snapper served as mission coordinator. From his post on the Watchtower, he coordinated operations as forty heroes, divided into twenty squads, simultaneously destroyed twenty MFDs scattered around the globe. The operation went smoothly, which led Carr to gleefully express his jubilation at the success.

However, the heroes missed an MFD site, and discovered its presence belatedly when conditions on Earth failed to improve. Only through the timely intervention of the Flash and Impulse, as well as Kid Flash's sacrifice, was disaster averted.[15]

In late June,[16] Lucas attended Wally West's funeral.[17]


Lucas began renting out the apartment above his garage to Conner and Megan after they graduated college.[18]

Lucas was present as Dick, Artemis, Jeff and Conner discussed Brion Markov and Halo's futures. He suggested they join the Team as they had powers, but Artemis and Dick noted powers were neither a requirement nor a guarantee of joining. After Conner expressed concern about the possibility they could be brainwashed and not know it, Lucas admitted that you didn't need to be brainwashed to spill secrets, as he knew from personal experience.

They were interrupted by the sound of Brion practicing with his powers. They went outside to help. Lucas was distressed to see his apple trees get burned.[19]

Lucas officiated Conner and M'gann's wedding after getting ordained online the night before. He made the ceremony short in case another supervillain attacked. He was the announcer at the reception.
