The extent of the Ort-Beast’s
powers is unknown. It had super-strength
in the Hulk’s class, three short golden claws on its two arms, a tough
red crystalline hide, a strong beak, and a long heavy spiked tail.
It survived in a crystalline dimension, and
was sentient and highly intelligent. When
struck, the Ort-Beast vanished in a flash of fireworks and reappeared
again behind its prey.
(Defenders I#59) – When the
Hulk appeared in the Ort-Beast’s dimension, the Ort-Beast (so named
because the noise he made was ‘Ort, Ort, Ort’) attacked for unknown
reasons, possibly because it was hungry. The
Ort-Beast swashed the Hulk with his claws, then teleported away briefly
in a flash of fireworks when the Hulk hit him. The
Ort-Beast reappeared behind the Hulk and, confused by the Hulk’s
ranting, pursued the Hulk when he leaped away. The
Hulk soon disappeared, with the help of Valkyrie and Devil-Slayer.
