History

Modern Age

While Hawkeye and Quicksilver were fleeing from Attuma's patrol ships, they came across a giant squid. They managed to evade its tentacles, so the monster caught their pursuers instead.[2]

A giant squid, attracted by a whirlpool, attacked the space capsule Castor-and-Pollux I during the splashdown, but it was forced to flee by the Sub-Mariner.[3]

Giant squid were also employed in Attuma's invading force, as they were commanded by the Red Ghost.[4]

Many years later, Sid Saggio was pulled off a pier and crushed to death by a giant squid in Brooklyn;[5] meanwhile, a few months after that a giant squid attacked the Hulk as he was approaching Monster Island.[6]

The Aqueos, underwater Vampires, included giant squids.[7]
