Grottu (Marvel)
Real Name:
Search for 'Grottu (Marvel)' on Amazon

Grottu is the size of an elephant and possesses superhuman strength and durability to an uncertain degree. It can communicate and command other ants, forming a massive legion of army ants, which can devour everything in its path. Grottu also possesses sufficient mental powers to communicate with people.
In addition, Grottu can apparently survive the destruction of his physical body, transferring his mind into a suitable host and manipulating that being, under certain circumstances.
Grottu briefly possessed Myrmidon and full utilization of his powers during that time period.

At some point during the 1950s, the deviant leader known as Kro assumed the identity of a Soviet soldier and conducted several nuclear tests in the Kenyan desert of Mombassa. The radiation from the tests mutated a common ant, increasing his size and strength a thousand fold, and granted him human-level intellect. Calling himself Grottu, he declared himself King of all insects, and set about on a plan to conquer the world. His efforts were foiled by monster-hunter Ulysses Bloodstone (posing as a man named Frank), who succeeded in turning Grotto's ant followers against him, leaving him for dead.
