Psyklop was a member of an ancient insectoid race that existed before man and worshiped the Dark Gods, hoping to take over the world for them. Eons later, Psyklop was awakened by the Dark Gods, who charged him with the responsibility of finding a power source for them, and if he did so, his race would be awakened and allowed to conquer the Earth.
In a secret lab below an island out in the Pacific Ocean, Psyklop teleported and captured the Hulk, preparing to shrink him down to size, in order to use his body as a power source to summon the Dark Gods. Exploring the island, Falcon and the Avengers crashed into the lab and began fighting Psyklop. During the fight, the Hulk was left unattended and the shrink ray trained on him caused him to shrink so small that he vanished from sight. Furious at losing the Hulk, Psyklop used a teleportation device to send the Avengers back to New York City.
He found the Hulk again in the Microverse on the planet K'ai. He captured the Hulk and returned him to his base, only to be violently pummeled by the Hulk. As the Hulk prepared to kill Psyklop he was transported away by the Dark Gods, who had decided to abandon him as their agent.
Psyklop then formed a plan is to create a large drilling device. He began to create catastrophic earthquakes all over K'ai, forcing the K'aitians to worship him as a god. He also captured the spirits of those who died in his earthquakes, planning on giving the spirits to the Dark Gods as a power source, wanting to regain their favor. He was confronted by the Hulk and Jarella, but managed to hypnotize and enslave the Hulk. When K'ai's people tried to rescue them from Psyklop, the villain sent the Hulk against them. Jarella's wizards cast a spell to get the Hulk out of his trance and the green giant turned against his real enemy. Desperate, Psyklop accidentally annihilated himself with one of his devices.
Psyklop later battled the Hiro-Kala during an invasion of K'ai. This later led to a confrontation with the heroes of the Microverse the Mircons. Psyklop later teamed up with the Microns to battle Hiro-Kala. The battle raged across the Microverse. Working with the Hulk they stopped Hiro-Kala.
