|~ Pause screen description • Kirby Super Star Ultra|
Marx is the main antagonist and final boss of the Milky Way Wishes sub-game in Kirby Super Star and its remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra. He asks Kirby to help him end a war between the Sun and Moon. Kirby listens to his plea and does what he suggests, completely unaware of Marx's ulterior motives. The jester then turns up just in time to send the final part of his devious plan into motion and simultaneously reveals that he used Kirby the whole time in order to gain control over Planet Popstar. Upon Marx's defeat, he is thrown by Kirby or flies out of control and crashes into the broken head of the Galactic Nova, causing the great machine to blow up in the process.
It's later revealed that Marx managed to "survive" by absorbing Nova's power, resurrecting as Marx Soul. After once again suffering a defeat against Kirby his body is completely annihilated.
Despite that, Marx eventually recovered and supposedly abandon his evil intentions in order to protect the universe from an incoming threat.
