Lucas "Snapper" Carr was a teacher, later Principal of Happy Harbor High School. In his youth, he was familiar with Mount Justice and the Justice League.

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

In his teens, Snapper was an associate of the League, and had full access to Mount Justice. His carelessness, however, led to the discovery of the Cave by the Joker[4] in 2006.[5]

Years later, Snapper Carr became a civics[6] teacher at Happy Harbor High School.[7]

Mister Carr broke up what could have become a fight between Conner Kent and Mal Duncan. Later in class, he discussed the current political state of Rhelasia. He was impressed by the knowledge Conner Kent displayed of the nation's history, as well as his question as to why it was divided.[7]

When the Reach's Magnetic Field Disruptors (MFDs) threatened Earth with destruction, Snapper Carr was pressed into service by the Justice League. He assisted in evacuating a school bus imperiled by natural disasters triggered by the MFDs. After the heroes agreed on a course of action, Snapper served as missions 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.[12]
