History: (Thor I#422)- Juvan was the third of the New Immortals created aboard New Wundagore by the High Evolutionary. He was presented to Thor and Hercules by the High Evolutionary as an example of the potential the New Immortals held. Juvan held Thor and Hercules in contempt, believing himself to be superior to them.

(Thor I#423)- Juvan accompanied Thor, Hercules, and the Analyzer on their expedition to the planetoid where the Celestials were preparing to create a new Celestial from the Black Galaxy.

(Thor I#424)- When Thor attempted to oppose the Celestials' plans, the High Evolutionary sent the New Immortals to stop him, but Juvan was no match for Thor. With the creation of the new Celestial, the battle ended, and the High Evolutionary went insane from realizing he was imperfect.

(Thor I#425)- With the Celestials gone, Juvan returned to New Wundagore with the other New Immortals.

(Thor I#447/2-448/2)- With the New Immortals, Juvan found Balder and Sif aboard New Wundagore and brought them to Count Tagar. The two Asgardians agreed to help them in their search for the High Evolutionary and Analzyer, whose trail led them to Ego, the Living Planet.

(Thor I#450/2)- Juvan witnessed the safe return of the High Evolutionary, Analzyer and Nobilus to New Wundagore, thanks to Sif and Balder.

(Thor I#473 (fb))- When the High Evolutionary at last regained his sanity, he determined that he would create yet another new race on earth. Juvan joined his fellow New Immortals in assaulting the High Evolutionary for abandoning them, and the High Evolutionary fled New Wundagore.

(Thor I#482)- Juvan fought the forces of the High Evolutionary, Thor and the God Pack alongside the New Immortals from their base at Orion, but was defeated.

(Thor I#483-484)- Juvan was placed into suspended animation by the High Evolutionary and was brought aboard Wundagore III with the other New Immortals. The High Evolutionary hoped to one day correct their flaws and awaken all of them.
