History

Kong: Skull Island

During World War II, Marlow and Gunpei Ikari were stranded on Skull Islanded when their planes crashed. They were initially hostile to each other and tried to kill one another, with Ikari nearly killing Marlow until the appearance of Kong scared him off. Eventually, they would encounter each other again and decided to discard their differences since they were no longer soldiers on opposite sides of a war, but two men stranded on an island and banded together to survive and they came to see each other as brothers. Ikari would eventually lose his life to save Marlow. Marlow erected a grave for Ikari and placed his sword there until the time came when Marlow needed his friend's sword.

Hank Marlow acted as a Lieutenant during the events of World War II, before being stranded on Skull Island. He then encountered James Conrad and his band of travelers during their expedition to the lost island, explaining who Kong is, while also speaking about the "devils" who lived below, also known as the Skullcrawlers.

Legacy

After spending time on Skull Island, he unintentionally helped the Iwi evolve: by teaching them English (in particular, Ato's father), they passed on his teachings to their children.

Abilities

  • Multilingualism: In addition to speaking his native English, Marlow can speak Japanese and can communicate in the silent manner the Iwi do.
  • Swordsmanship: Marlow is very skilled with a sword, in particular, Gunpei's.
