Rex Carpenter was a citizen of Counter-Earth who was possessed by the Man-Beast. While possessed by the Man-Beast, Rex was influenced to run for the US Presidency, which he won because he was not beholden to any other political groups and was seen by the public as a departure from regular crooked politicians. While president, the Man-Beast tried to turn the public against Adam Warlock, with mixed results.

Eventually, Rex's sister Astrella told Adam Warlock the truth and, when confronted, the Man-Beast abandoned Rex's body. Astrella, Rex, and Warlock became Man-Beast's prisoners. With the Hulk's help, Warlock was finally able to defeat the Man-Beast and free Counter-Earth of his influence. Rex chose to stay president even though he was only president because of the Man-Beast's plans.

Counter-Earth was later destroyed by Thanos. Rex and his sister Astrella are presumed deceased.
