Before the advent of superheroes, comic publications featured monsters. Many magnificent beasts are a minor part of Marvel’s heritage, but their contributions are significant. Here’s a list of several remarkable Marvel Comics Monsters who just might have their own franchise:
One of the most endearing characters in the Marvel Universe now, Groot in the initial days was pitched as one of the Marvel Comics monsters! This was long before he joined the Guardians of the Galaxy. Groot was shown as much bigger and sturdier than the other characters. Although he retained his signature tree-like appearance, the creature bore little relation to the present Groot in terms of personality. Only the character’s rage at humanity was shown in the text, and he was far from friendly and caring.
2. Leviathon Mother
When a massive horde of monsters was set to fully destroy Earth, as they had done with so many other worlds, it was in dire danger. The Leviathans, a race of creatures, traveled from planet to planet, prepping them for the mother’s arrival. The Marvel Comics monster Leviathon Mother was a massive and gigantic creature that appeared to be a former Godzilla foe. If its numerous eyes and legs weren’t enough, its sharp jaws and lethal claws would undoubtedly give her the upper hand in combat.
3. Fin Fang Foom
This monster has a unique characteristic that very few creatures have. Fin Fang Foom is possibly one of the most intelligent Marvel Comics monsters in the universe. He’s so clever that he once joined forces with the Mandarin to attack Iron Man, forcing the long-time foes to collaborate. This dragon possesses all of the qualities that one would expect of a monster of his type, as well as a mind capable of devising tactical maneuvers capable of bringing anyone down!
The large and terrifying alien creature from Planet X is Goom. While Foom may be the most intelligent of the Marvel Comics monsters, this beast is not. He is competent at simple deceptions that have fooled humanity, but he is a huge brute rather than a thinker. He does, however, possess a lot of skills that make him exceedingly threatening. As if his size and strength weren’t impressive enough, he also possesses telekinesis, allowing him to move objects with his mind!
The Tricephalous is a tri-headed beast possessed by the Mole Man, who has battled the Fantastic Four on several occasions. He’s also faced off against other superheroes like the Incredible Hulk. He’s been subjected to Roxxon’s experiments and the Skrulls’ command in the past, but he keeps coming back tougher than ever. With the ability to fly, a fiery breath, and incredible size, it’s no surprise that so many people are terrified by this enormous behemoth.
