Michael's brother Jonas, another cryptozoologist, sent another team some time later to find the creature, under the guise that they were searching for the legendary sasquatch. This group was massacred by the Wendigo. Jonas, his wife Tamara who had once been engaged to Michael, and Heather Hudson arrived with local authorities to clean up the crime scene. Wolverine, who had been in the area, dropped in to see what was going on, and realized from stool left behind that this wasn't a sasquatch, but a wendigo. As he left to track the creature, Jonas followed. The two arrived near a cave just as the Hulk, seeking isolation, landed nearby. This caused the Wendigo to emerge and attack the green behemoth. Wolverine joined in the fight, and Jonas used technology borrowed from S.H.I.E.L.D. to capture the Wendigo. As he, Tamara, whom he still had not told his suspicions that the Wendigo was her ex-fiancé, and a drugged Wendigo flew over New York City, Tamara attempted to kill the beast she believed murdered her former lover. However, the beast managed to growl out her name, startling her. The Wendigo then broke free of his restraints and the ship itself, falling into New York.[1]

The Wendigo confronted a young woman who tried to use mace on it, angering the monster. Before it could attack her, she was saved by Spider-Man and Ghost Rider, who had arrived searching for the local killer. While the three fought, Jonas and Tamara arrived, wounding the creature, sending it fleeing back into the woods. Jonas briefed Spider-Man on the situation, leaving out his knowledge that the Wendigo was his brother. They tracked the monster to the Central Park Zoo, where it had killed several people there as well. The Wendigo grabbed Tamara, almost gently, trying to communicate with her. Ghost Rider arrived to deal his brand of justice to the monster, but Spider-Man, realizing this was not the way, stopped the Spirit of Vengeance. Ghost Rider instead used his penance stare on the creature, and found the truth about the fate of Michael Fleet. The now-docile beast was taken into custody, with Tamara by his side.[2]


Like all Wendigo, this one is covered with white fur, and possesses clawed hands and feet, a long tail, and fang-like teeth. He possesses the same superhuman abilities as other Wendigos, including Superhuman Class 75 strength, as well as enhanced speed, stamina and endurance.
