History

Origin[]

Thog the Nether-Spawn was one of the Hell-Lords that originated from the energy released by the battle between the Elder Gods and the Demogorge.[1]

Early years[]

He eventually came to rule the nether-realm of Sominus (the dark reflection of the benevolent realm of Therea).[1] As such, he was one of the Lords of the Splinter Realms.

The Lords of the Splinter Realms gathered only twice in the 47,000 years before the Modern Age.[4] It is unknown if Thog attended either of those two gatherings.

Modern day[]

While still in her teens, amateur occultist Jennifer Kale used the Tome of Zhered-Na and conducted a ritual in the Florida Everglades that opened a dimensional portal enabling Thog to enter the Earth-realm. First taking the form of a small winged creature, he quickly grew in size and began hunting for the being that had summoned him. He tracked Jennifer and her younger brother Andy to the Roxie Theater in nearby Citrusville and began attacking them. Strangely enough, the Man-Thing witnessed Thog's emergence on this world and instinctively followed him to the theater. The two engaged in combat and Thog took on a more humanoid appearance. Irritated that the Man-Thing had interrupted his quest, he unleashed a blast of eldritch energy against him, but this had little effect on the muck-monster. Thog followed the Man-Thing back to the swamp at which time Jennifer Kale tried to reverse the spell that summoned him by destroying the Tome. The pages caught fire and a dimensional aperture opened before them. The Man-Thing (through no conscious act of his own) pushed Thog through the portal, sending him back into the Abyss.[5]

When the balance between the realities began to break and all of the realities began to merge, he disguised himself as a human and called himself the Overmaster in an attempt to break into Therea, the realm of the gods. He amassed an army from the Congress of Realities, a group of beings who formed together from all of the different worlds in an attempt to ascend to godhood. Dakimh the Enchanter gathered Jennifer along with the Man-Thing, Howard the Duck and Korrek of Katharta, who had each been plucked from their own worlds, in an attempt to stop him. Thog was defeated by the Man-Thing, who used the pure water of Therea to petrify the demon.[6][2]

Thog became trapped on Therea, unable to move because of the bright sunlight. However, when Dakimh was slain in battle,[7] Therea's sun was darkened for just a brief moment and he managed to escape through a dimensional portal that he created. He then hatched an elaborate scheme involving siblings Danielle Nicolle and her brother, the Scavenger, harvesting emotions to construct a gigantic pyramid that would plunge the universe into insanity and imprison the Man-Thing. His plan backfired when the energies of the Man-Thing and Steve Gerber combined and destroyed the pyramid. He was then incinerated by the Man-Thing's touch after becoming afraid.[8]

When summoning Mephisto, Doctor Doom invoked Thog's name along with Beelzebub's, Satan's, and Baphomet's.[9]

He attended the convocation called by Magik (Amanda Sefton), the Custodian of Limbo, and united with his fellow Lords of the Splinter Realms to defeat the Archenemy.[4]
