I didn't start off reading super hero comics. No, I was more into House of Mystery, Weird War Tales, EC Comics, Sgt. Rock, Werewolf by Night, G.I. Combat and stuff like that.

And then there were the Monster Comics! I was a Godzilla junkie and watched all of those cheesy Japanese creature flicks. It only seemed natural to pick up Monsters on the Prowl, Creatures on the Loose and their ilk. Also being a rabid fan of H. P. Lovecraft made it easy to like the stories - huge, horrible Beasts from places unknown versus ordinary, average citizens! Gosh, what excitement!

A lot of the entities introduced in this era were memorable more for their name than anything else and were one-shot adversaries that never really caught on with the major Marvel Universe. But some of them did.

So, question is...which one is your favorite?

If there is one I haven't listed feel free to post your idea.

Fin Fang Foom
Awesome name. Classic Chinese Dragon. Has appeared in a number of Marvel Comics and is an incredible Kirby creation.


Groot
Ah, yes. The beloved Monarch of Planet X. Tree-like and unconquerable.


Googam, Son of Goom
Googam, idiot child of Goom means well. No seriously, he has a great personality.


Xemnu the Titan
Fluffy, white, mind control creature!


Gorgilla
Humongous ape-like beast. No relation to King Kong.


It, the Living Colossus
Giant stone golem. Virtually indestructible.


Tim Boom Ba
He's really big. In the Microverse that is. Cool name though.



Spragg the Living Hill
C'mon, it's a freaking living hill! What else do you want?

Went with Xemnu. Classic. Cheesy, fluffy, white thing. Forgettable, but successfully revived for the first Defenders story I ever read.

Well, that is a quite embarrassing depiction of ol' FFF after all.
Groot always looks cool!

If I could find a funny picture of Groot wearing undies...I would so change it. That is one of my favorite moments from Nextwave..and probably the only one that is not filthy in some way....
