Kaliban was a guard of the Great Refuge, one of the troops under the command of Chiron.[1]

When the Human Torch went to visit Crystal, unaware of the fact that she had never even reached the Refuge, Chiron ordered Kaliban to intercept the Torch with the ion-blast - wrongly assuming that the Torch was allied with the Royal Family. Kaliban hit the Torch, turning off his flame and making him fall. Chiron then sent Asmodeus to catch the Torch in flight, but the Torch recovered and flamed on with some much heat that, per Kaliban's words, even Asmodeus' heat-resistant wings could not smother it. Chiron ordered Kaliban and the other troops to retreat to the Refuge so they could report the new threat while Chiron confronted the Torch. However, once the Torch discovered that Crystal was not there, he lost interest and left.[1]


Ion-blast, a high-range two-handed rifle.[1]
