(Marvel Comics Presents I#100/1) - Tinner and his team were hired by Dr. Doom to build a device that could prevent Doom from having nightmares. Tinner couldn't do it, but at least he made a fail-safe which allowed Doom to awaken from his nightmares. Doom wasn't satisfied with this, and Tinner immediately offered to take his own life, but Doom had other plans. He made a "Monk of Doom" Tinner's supervisor and told Tinner that he would be punished later.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#100/2-4 - BTS) - Under the Monk's supervision Ghost Rider and Wolverine were captured and a device was built by Tinner to unite them with Doom in a nightmare.

The unidentified Monk was from the same order that was slaughtered in Fantastic Four III#3 by Crucible.

Doctor Tinner has no known connection to:


unidentified Monk

(Marvel Comics Presents I#100/1 (fb) - BTS) - Plagued by nightmares caused by the demon Nightmare and frustrated by the failures of his agent Dr. Tinner, Doom summoned an unidentified member of the "Wise Ones" / "Monks of Doom" from Tibet to aid in resolving the issue.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#100/1) - After Doom suffered another nightmare, he confronted Tinner, denying his offer to take his own life and instead directing him to continue his work under the supervision of "this one" (the acolyte/monk).

    Doom instructed the monk not to fail him as he wanted results before his next sleep, and the monk assured him, "Of course, master. All is already underway."

(Marvel Comics Presents I#100/2-3 (fb) - BTS) - The Monk ordered -- via combat drones -- the capture of Ghost Rider (Dan Ketch/Noble Kale) and Wolverine (James Howlett/Logan), who were both immune to Nightmare's powers. 


(Marvel Comics Presents I#100/2-3 (fb) - BTS) - The monk aided Tinner in building a machine to unite Dr. Doom, Ghost Rider, and Wolverine in a dream against Nightmare. 

(Marvel Comics Presents I#100/4) - The Monk was connected to Doom while he dreamt and was killed by a backlash of fear energy when Nightmare confronted Doom, Ghost Rider, and Wolverine. 

(Marvel Comics Presents I#100/4) - Doom woke up and wanted to punish the Monk for failing him, but the Monk was already dead.
