In response to a threat to the Counter-Earth from Galactus, Gorr was evolved from a gorilla by the High Evolutionary (Herbert Wyndham) and sent to Earth[1]. When Gorr arrived on Earth, he grew to an enormous size, panicked and began a rampage across Manhattan until he was subdued by the Fantastic Four[2]. After returning to normal size, Gorr told the Fantastic Four that Earth's atmosphere caused him to grow, which made him panic and lose control[1]. Gorr teamed up with the Human Torch (Jonathan Storm) to find a suitable planet for Galactus to consume in place of Counter-Earth[3]. After the ordeal, Johnny asked Gorr what his plans for the future were, to which Gorr replied that he would remain a valet to the High Evolutionary[4].

He was captured by the enigmatic alien, the Stranger, and were imprisoned in the Stranger's Labworld for the alien to study him. He remained their until freed by Overmind.[6]
