History: (Amazing Adventures I#6)- Krogg used his matter-transmitting machine to teleport entire houses into another dimension, then sent out million dollar ransom demands to the city. After three houses had vanished, Dr. Druid became involved in the investigation.
Dr. Druid finally located Krogg's apartment, and tricked Krogg into opening his door by throwing his voice to make him think someone had entered his room. After Druid saw the effects of Krogg's machines, Krogg tried to shoot him, but Druid repelled the bullets with his powers. Krogg then unmasked himself to Dr. Druid and stated that he had intended to use the ransom money to plunder Earth. He then vanished, apparently using his machines, but warning Dr. Druid that he would return and destroy him.

Droom into Dr. Druid.
