Base of Operations: Underneath the surface of Wuwei, China

Powers/Abilities: Glomm has a very malleable body and can allow things to pass through himself, or can use his malleable form to engulf his opponents, suffocate them, or form tentacles to constrict or strike opponents. He has super strength and is at least 9 feet tall (in Warbird's approximation). He has no bones or organs except for one which apparently serves all his bodily functions. He is vulnerable to attacks at this organ.

History: At some point, either when or before Kang declared war on Earth, Glomm rebelled against the deviant empire and aligned himself as a soldier serving under Dulpus. He became the chosen champion of Dulpus.

(Avengers III#44) - When the Avengers had chased an army of deviants into their underground lair, they were surrounded on all sides by hundreds of deviants. Taking advantage of the Deviants own rules, Warbird challenged the deviant leader, Dulpus, to combat for the right to rule. Dulpus eventually agreed despite the fact she was human and female, under the stipulation that if she lost, she would become his body-slave. He paired his champion, Glomm, to fight for him against Warbird. Glomm demonstrated his powers and engulfed Warbird within himself, beginning to suffocate her. However, before she could pass out, she found his sole organ inside of him. She attacked it, and Glomm collapsed in defeat. Warbird, as the new leader of the deviants, then ordered the deviant army to surrender.

(Avengers III#52) - As a result of the Wasp's negotiations with Warlord Kro, the deviant army helped win back Earth from Kang. Glomm was among the deviants who attacked Kang's forces in Japan. Thought the battle was never depicted, their attack was at least relatively successful in driving Kang's forces back.
