History: (Thor I#409) - Georgie the Gyp and Richie Cool were two small-time criminals who obtained advanced weapons from Dr. Doom, which they used to steal over $70,000 in gems. But within a minute of their escape, Thor appeared, and destroyed their vehicle with a single blow from Mjolnir. The two criminals attempted to face Thor in batle, but he easily deflected blasts from their rifles, and knocked them aside by striking Mjolnir on the ground. Thor turned them over to the police, who noted that they had been receiving a large number of criminals like the two of them of late.

As Lt. Marc Stone puzzled over their hardware, Dr. Doom sent his Time-Bot to break the two men out of prison, but only as a diversion to attract the attention of Thor. The two criminals attempted to escape with the Time-Bot, but it abandoned them as soon as Thor appeared, and Lt. Stone led his men in recapturing them.
