part of Mogul's assault force

History:

(Thor I#143/2 (fb) - BTS) - At some point he was placed in a chamber underneath Mogul's throne room in the Mystic Mountain. He slew all those who entered the chamber.

(Thor I#143/2) - Shezada opened a trap door beneath Volstagg into Mutaurus chamber, but Volstagg grabbed her, pulling her down with him. Volstagg sidestepped Mutaurus' first charge, and Shezada, fearing for her own life, led Volstagg to the Enchanted Rod of Wondrous Wizard Power. Using the Enchanted Rod, Volstagg easily felled Mutaurus.

(Thor I#474 (fb)) - After Shezada freed Mogul, he unleashed Mutaurus against Alibar, capturing and imprisoning him.

(Thor I#474 (fb)) - Mutaurus was part of Mogul's assault force against Asgard. He pursued Volstagg, who goaded him into charging and then fled between a pair of rocks, wide enough for Volstagg's bulk, but too narrow for Mutaurus horned head to pass.

pawn of Morgan LeFay

(Avengers III#1) - Mutaurus was one of many magical beings summoned from Asgard to Earth as part of a plot by Morgan le Fey. He fought Hawkeye alongside the Manhattan's East River for a short struggle before vanishing along with the others summoned.

Comments: Created by Stan Lee (writer), Jack Kirby (pencils), Bill Everett (inks).

Obvious parallels to the Minotaur of the Labyrinth (see clarifications).

When calculation the Mutaurus' weight: He's very broad/thick, and he's from Asgard, so maybe superhumanly dense (that's under debate). I'd say he would weigh like 600 lbs. at 6' tall. 15' tall is 2.5 x the height of 6', and weight increases with the cube of the height, so, he would be 15.65 times as heavy at 15' tall, which is 9375 lbs. ---Snood

He did not speak in his Thor appearances, seeming to be more of a raging monster, but he spoke quite eloquently in Avengers III#1.

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