The man known as the Gargoyle was considered extremely unattractive. He found it hard to maintain a relationship or even keep a job. When he came across an advertisement that specifically sought an "ugly man" for a carnival side show, he resigned himself to apply. However, when he applied to the carnival, he was locked inside one of their tents. To his surprise, the tent was a rocket ship. Landing on an another planet, he was met by a race of human-looking aliens. Their queen explained that while their species would be considered attractive by Earth standards, she saw no beauty in their uniformity. She found the Gargoyle's differences beautiful and proposed marriage. He accepted.[1]
