Base of Operations: outside the
cave of Wazir in Hindi, on the periphery of the landmass of
formerly the Mystic Mountain;
First Appearance: Thor I#138 (March, 1967)
Powers/Abilities: Ogur is approximately 10' tall and possesses superhuman strength (Class 75?) and durability. His major limitation is his lack of depth perception.
History: Ogur's origins are unknown. He apparently came to dwell outside of the cave of Wazir, testing the worthiness of those who approached to meet him.
(Thor I#138/2) - Ogur assaulted Thor and the Warriors Three as they approached Wazir's cave. He overpowered Hogun, but was felled by a mighty blow from Thor's hammer.
(Thor I#474 (fb) - BTS) - Ogur came to serve Mogul of the Mystic Mountain.
(Thor I#474 (fb)) - Ogur was part of Mogul's assault force against Asgard. He pursued Fandral, who outwitted him by standing underneath a smooth rock outcropping. Unable to appreciate the cliff face, Ogur charged right into it, knocking himself out.
(Thunderbolts#9) - Ogur returned to Wazir, serving as his guardian once again.
(Thunderbolts#9) - Ogur was summoned to
Manhattan by forces unknown. Unable to comprehend what had
happened, he went on a rampage which drew the attention of the
police, who proved ineffective, and two of the Thunderbolts, Mach-1
and Songbird. Mach-1's various technological assaults proved
ineffective, but when Ogur grabbed Songbird, she unleashed a
solid sound hammer, smiting the giant, who fell, unconscious.
Ogur was apparently taken captive by the police.
Comments: Created by Stan "The Man" Lee, Jack "King" Kirby, and Vince Colletta.
I wonder if Roy Thomas remembered that Ogur was not an agent of Mogul in the initial stories...
In Thunderbolts#9 (1997), Ogur is listed as having first (and last) appeared in Thor I#138. They forgot about Thor I#474 (1994).
The last time Ogur was seen he was on Earth, but there is still the possibility that he returned to Asgard and died in the Ragnarok in Thor II#85.
