(Tales to Astonish I#30/4 (fb) - BTS) - Quogg's past is unrevealed, but at some point in time, he arrived in a valley in the jungles of Africa. Nearby villagers fenced off the valley where Quogg took up residence with a high wooden wall. The valley was thereafter considered taboo territory by the superstitious natives, who considered Quogg to be a demon (see comments).

(Tales to Astonish I#30/4) - While on the run from the law, a fugitive criminal went into the jungle, where he saw a native tribesman beating on a drum and performing a ceremonial ritual. The native warned him that the area was taboo, for it was the valley where Quogg dwelt; the native further warned him that none could pass the great wall and live. Thinking the forbidden valley would be the perfect hideout, the criminal later sneaked over the wall and into Quogg's valley, where he mistook Quogg for an empty hut.

   Pleased to have found a place where he could live, the criminal built a barricade around the "hut," to keep any man-eating animals out.

   But it wasn't long before Quogg revealed his true nature and attacked the criminal.


(Monsters Unleashed II#2) - The Inhuman Kid Kaiju summoned Quogg along with numerous other monsters to an area outside San Diego, California in defense against the Leviathons.

(Monsters Unleashed II#3) - Quogg joined the fight against the Leviathons. Earth's heroes watched the monsters summoned by Kid Kaiju defeat the Leviathons. After the battle Quogg and the other monsters were teleported back from where they came.

Comments: Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.

As with many 1950's and 1960's Marvel monster stories, this story is not confirmed as part of Earth-616 continuity, but there's nothing to exclude it either.

It was mentioned in the story that the natives near Quogg's valley thought he was a demon, but they may have been mistaken. Personally I believe Quogg was an extraterrestrial stranded on Earth. what appeared to be a simple hut was actually Quogg -- since he had the appearance of a type of dwelling, I wonder if Quogg could have some connection with House and the House of Shadows? Could they all possibly be members of...The Brotherhood of Bogus Bungalows?!! Watch out, Cockroach Conspiracy!

Quogg had two arms, but since no lower limbs were depicted, we don't know how tall he actually was. --Ron Fredricks

Thanks to Meatbag Pool for pointing out his appearance in Monsters Unleashed II#2-3.

The original story was reprinted in Where Monsters Dwell#12 (November, 1971).

Quogg has no known connections to:

unidentified criminal

After committing a robbery at an African outpost, he fled from the forces of the law and went into the jungle.

He came upon a native tribesman performing a ceremonial ritual outside a high wooden wall. The native warned him that the valley beyond the wall was taboo, for it was where the demon Quogg dwelt. Thinking that the forbidden valley would be the perfect hiding place, the criminal later climbed the wall and went into Quogg's valley.

The criminal found an empty hut to live in, so he built a barricade surrounding the hut, to protect him from any man-eating animals.

After completing his barricade, the criminal decided to exploit the fears of the superstitious natives -- he planned to make himself a costume and pretend to be Quogg, so he could terrorize the villagers and demand riches from them.

But his schemes came to an abrupt end when he discovered that what he thought was an abandoned hut was actually Quogg.
