Christian Sung was born in Duncanville, Texas, of Korean descent. While coursing music studies at Johnson State College, he returned to Texas,[1] terrorizing Austin with his monstrous form.

Human form

Following several sightings of what people dubbed the "Austin Monster," Christian caught the attention of monster-hunters Amadeus and Maddy Cho.[2] While Maddy was investigating in Austin, Christian began rampaging through the city. After she failed to stop him, Amadeus arrived to assist her in his Hulk form. Christian grew more powerful as he fed on Hulk's emotions, and defeated him, subsequently escaping with an abducted little child.[3]

Amadeus and Maddy followed him to the sewers, rescuing the little kid with the help of Black Panther, and later using a protocol meant for the Hulk on Christian himself, which consisted of teleporting him to the Negative Zone.[1]
