Fin Fang Foom - Marvel Monster

Fin Fang Foom - Marvel Monster

Fin Fang Foom is a large alien that has a physiology that closely resembles that of a mythical dragon.  Fin Fang Foom origins go back prior to the Marvel age of Super Heroes however he is now more known as a nemesis to Iron Man.

Alias: He Whose Limbs Shatter Mountains and Whose Back Scrapes the Sun

First Appearance: Strange Tales #89

Species: Makluan / Axonn-Karr

Planet of Origin:  Kakaranathara (Maklu IV) in Maklu System

Galaxy: Andromeda Galaxy in Maklu System

Toylab Note:  Some sources put Maklu System in the Great Magellanic Cloud Galaxy (ex. Fin Fang Foom's wikipedia page).  However, as the Kree have full control of the entirety of the Greater Magellanic Cloud so it seems unlikely that Makluan's could act independently of them.  I think these sources are in error and it should be Andromeda.  I have also found multiple sources list Andromeda.  I am sticking to Andromeda until I find a better source that conflicts with this.  For more on this see the Toylab map of Marvel's Andromeda Galaxy HERE.

Fin Fang Foom - News:

Fin Fang Foom - Multimedia:


Fin Fang Foom is a alien of the Makluan race that hails from a planet in the Andromeda galaxy.  A ship of Makluan containing Fin Fang Foom lands on Earth in China.  The Makluans plot to take over Earth and all of the crew except for Fin Fang Foom leave the ship.  The crew shape shifts into human forms to learn about and infiltrate Earth.  The Makluan's are a very long lived species and take their time in there conquest.  For hundreds of years Fin Fang Foom remains dormant living inside the ship.

The Makluan Space Ship is found by local Chinese and is considered to be a magical tomb of a dragon.  Foom is woken up on a few occasions.  In his first story, Fin Fang Foom is woken by Chan Liuchow who leads the monster into a communist military camp.  Foom destroys the entire camp before being led back to his tomb by Chan.  Chan then uses a magical herb to force Foom to go back to sleep.

On another occasion Foom is attempted to be controlled by another alien race to destroy the Living Colossus.  Fin Fang Foom rests back control of his mind and joins forces with the Colossus against the foes.

Iron Man and Mandarin:
A local warlord is told about the magical tomb of Fin Fang Foom and goes there seeking power.  This man is later known as the Mandarin and becomes a major villain opposed to Iron Man.  In the tomb the Mandarin finds 10 magic rings of power.  He also awakens Fin Fang Foom.  Foom joins the Mandarin and helps him take over 1/3 of China.  When the Mandarin learns that Foom is part of an alien species bent on conquering Earth he joins with the heroes Iron Man and War Machine to defeat him.

While seeming killed in the battle with Iron Man, Foom's spirit still resides on Earth connected to a statue.  A boy steals the statue and Foom uses his body as a vessel to recreate his own body.  Lizards from all over join with the boys body to create one massive dragon like form that finally takes on the form of Fin Fang Foom.  The resurrected Foom is defeated by Iron Man but this time not killed.

After his defeat Fin Fang Foom bounces around between the Isle of Monsters and the Collectors vault before eventually going back to China.

With no Makluan's members surviving from his original crew, Fin Fang Foom eventually decides to leave peacefully amongst humanity.  Foom joins a Monster Rehabilitation group along with Elektro, Gorgilla and Googam.  He eventually becomes a chef working in the Baxter Building in NYC.
