History: (Marvel: Heroes and Legends '96)- Grogoom was one of the many ne'er do-wells summoned to the wedding of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisble Girl by Dr. Doom. He encountered the young boy Mark, who had been separated from his father during the confusion.

Before Grogoom could strike Mark down with his fiery breath, Iceman of the X-Men used his powers to snuff out the creature's flame. Then the Beast hurled Cyclops into the air, where he blasted apart the warehouse Grogoom had been standing under. And "Not even a Marvel-type monster can soon recover-- after being buried under a 6 story brick warehouse!"

Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Fabian Nicieza, and Marie Severin.

Given Stan's legendary poor memory, I really tend to think that Marie Severin intended Grogoom to be Tim Boo Ba, only for Stan to just make up a name, not quite sure if the character had appeared before or not. But it's all good! Better for Tim Boo Ba to remain dead anyway.
