Astronaut Colonel Richmond Wagner participated with Calvin Beame in a space mission aboard the Castor-and-Pollux I capsule. During the second spacewalk, he was covered by some kind of white mist, and then transmission was lost until re-entry on Earth.

After flight trouble forced the capsule down over the ocean, the duo was saved from the attack of a giant squid by Sub-Mariner. The two astronauts publicly quit the space program, supposedly in disgust over a lack of safety precautions. A short time later, Wagner convinced Beame to use their newfound celebrity to host a childrens' show, with him dressing up in an alien costume. The show, called the Astro-Nuts, became a hit, and he even managed to sign the Hulk in the WBZM Studios to pose for a huge televised event to be held in Cape Canaveral. At that moment, Xemnu, who had possessed Wagner's body since the space mission, actually revealed himself, before he was ultimately defeated by the Defenders[1].
