Gronk can secret at will a highly adhesive chemical from his pores, enabling him to adhere to virtually anything or make anything stick to him.
Gronk serves as a bodyguard for Maelstrom. Alongside Maelstrom's other Minions, Helio and Phobius, Gronk was dispatched by Maelstrom to Hydro-Base to steal the Anti-Terrigen Compound. He battled Mister Fantastic, the Thing, Gorgon, Karnak, and Stingray. The Minions were captured, but then put to death by Deathurge at Maelstrom's command.
Gronk's cloned body was later activated by Maelstrom, and dispatched along with the other Minions against the Avengers. The Minions confronted Iron Man and Starfox, but were coerced into helping the Avengers by Starfox and was rendered unconscious by Wonder Man. The Minions's spare clonal bodies were destroyed, and they was taken captive.
Much later, Gronk and the other Minions guarded Maelstrom's prisoners after his defeat of Quasar. Gronk and the other Minions then battled Moondragon and Sersi, and Gronk was turned into a pig by Sersi.
