History: (Journey into Mystery I#65/3  (fb) - Every day for years, several members of an unnamed alien race received treatments to prepare them for their transformation into the Kragoom. Once ready, they underwent hyper-gamma radiation, which transformed them into more vicious versions of their race. These beings, the Kragoom, were sent to various planets to use their powers of hypnosis to conquer them. A single Kragoo was sent to Earth, where he began his search for a human body to usurp.

(Journey into Mystery I#65/3) - The Kragoo came across a house in the middle of the night, and saw what he believed to be a human through a window. He used his powers to transfer himself into this being, but was horrified to realize that in the darkness, he had in actuality taken over a wooden statue. Trapped within this state, he could only observe and never use his powers.
