Glob (Marvel) (01- Joe Timms)
Real Name: Joe Timms
Search for 'Glob (Marvel) (01- Joe Timms)' on Amazon

A monstrous creature that resembled a semi-solid mass of slime and bog-matter, with superhuman strength, stamina, and durability.

Limited in intelligence and reflexes.

Joe Timms was born in Miami, Florida. Timms was a petty criminal and an escaped convict who drowned in a swamp bog following his escape. Timms was transformed by radioactive waste into a strange slime-like shambling monster, named Glob, with superhuman strength but with very little intelligence. He menaced Betty Ross, and battled the Hulk. He was destroyed by an experimental anti-radiation fluid in the swamp waters. Shortly thereafter, he was resurrected by the Leader, who sent him against the Hulk. The Glob was blown into fragments by an explosion.

The Glob's brain later reformed into the Golden Brain. It was used as a weapon by Yagzan and the crazed Cult of Entropists, but was lost by the Entropists in an encounter with the Man-Thing. The Golden Brain psionically molded itself into an amnesiac blond haired man. The man was later captured and mutated by Yagzan into a clay form version of Glob. It battled the Man-Thing and was reduced to clay again, which smothered Yagzan.

However, it was later revealed that the Glob was enslaved by the Collector and eventually rebelled against him with assistance of the Hulk and Man-Thing.

He was then taken into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody where Glob was recruited in that organization's Paramormal Containment Unit.
