Marx is a Kirby series character who appeared in the SNES classic known as Kirby Super Star. The boss character is noted as the final boss of the sub-game Milky Way Wishes, in which he is not only the final boss, but also the main antagonist, playing a large role in the plot. He also appears in the sub game The Arena as the final boss.
For years Marx had had a pipe dream of one day taking over Pop Star. At the beginning of Milky Way Wishes, Marx confronts Kirby, fully implying that he wishes to help the pink puffball protagonist, stating his desire that the moon and sun will someday be in harmony of one another, seeing that the two have been recently fighting. Ultimately, Marx tells Kirby he must activate the Fountain of Dreams on other worlds to make the wish granting comet NOVA appear He does so, though rather than asking that the moon and sun make peace, he asks for the ultimate power in order to take over Dream Land.
Nova does so, and the antagonist then knocks out Kirby. He approaches Pop Star, though before he manages to take over, the moon and sun unite to take the character down.
Marx first appears as a small, round being about Kirby's height. He has large eyes, brown shoes and wears a jester hat. After gaining the ultimate power,he gains two golden wings. Instead of having feathers or skin in them, they have glittering hexagonal shapes.
Kirby fights Marx as the final boss. Unlike other final bosses in the Kirby series, Kirby is free to use copy abilities instead of just an ultimate weapon. This is useful as he has few projectiles that can be shot back at him. He spends the battle hovering above the stage, attacking Kirby and flying away.
