Monster of the Day #468 Updated on April 27, 2012 By Ken Begg 13 Comments OK, I think this is my favorite. Somebody else must have liked him, too, as his son (!) later menaced the Earth too.

MrTongoRad I’m really getting a kick out of the dialog coming from the monsters this week; sort of like a monster/bad guy hybrid, all full of menacing threats and braggadocio. The world can never have enough monsters who do that. Beckoning Chasm Is Goom talking, or the guy climbing his shoulder? Beckoning Chasm I wonder if there’s a competition on Planet X to determine who gets the title “The Thing From.” bgbear_rogerh Was his son named Goomba ? MrTongoRad Well, I also prefer monsters who refer to themselves in the third person so that may have swayed how I read that, but now that you mention it I suppose it could also be the guy in the snazzy green suit. Beckoning Chasm Goom, you’ll be shocked to learn, also has his own wikipedia page. According to a link there, he, the Glob and Groot were all members of SHIELD in later years. Gamera977 Here at the law offices of Orrgo, Glob, Groot, Molten Man-Thing, and Goom we’re fighting for you! Beckoning Chasm “Tired of having your conquests thwarted, after all that hard work? My name is Goom, I’m a lawyer, and I’m going to talk to you about Last Minute Plot Twists. My uncle Mogo worked in the world-conquest field, and he was destroyed by a Last Minute Plot Twist. That makes this fight personal for me, and I will personally fight for you…” Flangepart “Next up on Judge Mantis, a monster claims his human opponent used unfair tactics in stopping his bid for world domination, when he hired independent hero contractors to scuttle his plans.” bgbear_rogerh not only will they cause you injury, they’ll chase your ambulance as well ;) sandra Those are very large trees. If that’s Planet X, then the humans are tresspassers. Goom is just shaking the alien life forms off his leafy snack before chowing down. Flangepart Ah, but the title is ‘Thing FROM planet X’ not ‘Thing ON planet X’ Also…is he teething, cause his maw is waaaay under-toothed.
