(Astonishing Tales#8/3) - On the night of Midsummer's Eve, Dr. Doom summoned Mephisto, continuing his annual challenge to free his mother's soul. Mephisto created Kagrok, promising to free Cynthia von Doom if he could defeat Kagrok. The magical creature attacked Doom savagely, weathering any attack Doom could mount. Though the combat specified fighting with just their strength, Doom reasoned that man's greatest strength was his mind, and as his mind had created his armor, he generated a force field to hold Kagrok off. The field withstood Kagrok's fist blow, but his magical power enabled him to shatter the field with his second, and Doom fell, defeated. Mephisto then took Kagrok and vanished.
