Astronaut Colonel Calvin Beame participated with Richmond Wagner to a space mission aboard the Castor-and-Pollux I capsule. After flight trouble forced the capsule down over the ocean, where the duo was saved from the attack of a giant squid by Sub-Mariner, the two astronauts publicly quit the space program, supposedly in disgust over a lack of safety precautions. A short time later, he was convinced by Wagner to use their newfound celebrity to host a childrens' show, with Wagner dressing up in an alien costume. The show, called the Astro-Nuts, became a hit, although Beame grew more and more concerned about it, until his partner signed the Hulk in the WBZM Studios to pose for a huge televised event to be held in Cape Canaveral. At that moment, the alien character of the show actually revealed himself as Xemnu, who was hypnotizing the children viewing his program to populate his dead world. Beame, having enough, tried to help, but was killed by his "friend" before he was ultimately defeated by the Defenders.[1]
