Grotesk (Marvel)
Real Name: Gor-Tok
Search for 'Grotesk (Marvel)' on Amazon

Prince Gor-Tok, also known as Grotesk, was the former prince of a warlike, civilized race of Gortokian Subterraneans with human intelligence and virtually human appearance. Underground atomic explosions created by surface humans led to the extinction of the entire race except for Grotesk, who, his mind and body first distorted by radiation, vowed to destroy the entire surface world.

Grotesk encountered the X-Men on his first foray to the surface world. He fought them, and killed the Changeling (who, at the time was posing as Professor X to the X-Men).

Grotesk later encountered Ms. Marvel. He also sided with the Mole Man and Tyrannus in their war against the surface world and the Avengers.
