History: (Tales to Astonish I#34/1) - After arriving on Earth to prepare for an invasion, a creature from the Sixth Dimension began stalking science fiction writer Paul Marshall. He intended to force the human to write about his race, and how peaceful they were, hoping to lure humans into a false sense of security when they really did appear. He chased Marshall throughout the man's apartment complex, and Paul fled to the roof. There, a cornered Marshall was told what to do and he agreed, but the Monster was surprised to find that Paul Marshall did not intend to do this for the Monster's race, but rather, his own invading race. Paul transformed into his true form, and the two creatures battled on the roof.
Comments: Created by Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers.
Marvel gave the Monster trunks in later reprints.
Since it came from the Sixth Dimension, I wonder if this monster had any affiliation to Tiboro?
The Monster (at My Window) has no known connections to
Marshall was, in truth, a monstrous being from another dimension. He took the form of a human and created highly popular science fiction stories. He was stalked by the Monster from the Sixth Dimension, and revealed his true nature in an effort to kill his rival so that Paul's own race could invade Earth first.
