Powers/Abilities: Grundor is a typical member of the Rock Troll race, possessing superhuman strength (class 25), endurance and durability. Like all Rock Trolls, he possesses infra-red vision allowing him to see in the dark.

History: (Thor I#409/2 (fb))- Grundor sent one of his Rock Trolls, Uroc, to build for him new weapons, promising to slay him if he failed. Uroc wound up creating for himself an uru body, and used it to seek revenge upon Grundor's kingdom.

(Thor I#408/2)- When his Rock Trolls captured Thor and brought him before Grundor, Grundor promised to make Thor his slave if he begged for his life, but Thor burst free of his bonds and defeated Grundor's men. Grundor then revealed to Thor that they were being forced to take food from the surface because of Uroc, and he led Thor through the Chasm of Eternal Sorrow to confront Uroc.

(Thor I#409/2)- Grundor watched as Thor battled Uroc, and seemed to be powerless to stop him, but Thor led Uroc onto a stone bridge and then dodged one of his blows, causing Uroc to smash the bridge and fall into the chasm. Thor saved Grundor and set back to his kingdom. Grundor wondered if perhaps it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Comments: Created by Tom DeFalco, Mike Mignola and Bob Wiacek.

Thor I#408-409/2 were set early in Thor's life, not long after he had received Mjolnir.

Grundor supposedly died during the Ragnarok in Thor II#85.
