Powers/Abilities: Orrgo of Earth-20051 had vast mental powers that were capable of stopping humans in their tracks, as well as hypnotizing them to do his bidding. His powers also included limited control of the elements. He was extremely strong and stood over 9' tall. Although relatively resilient, he was not that good at fighting and relied on his mental abilities.
(Marvel Adventures: Fantastic Four#35 (fb) - BTS) - Orrgo traveled across vast distances in space, encountering many life-forms.
(Marvel Adventures: Fantastic Four#35) - Orrgo went on a destructive rampage in New York, smashing through buildings, until the Thing flew in and a fight quickly ensued. Using his control over the elements, Orrgo encased the Thing in a sheath of ice that he easily broke out of. The rocky hero then hit Orrgo several times until the alien ascended into the air, claiming to go home to his planet but promising to return. The Thing then told the Human Torch of the encounter.
(Marvel Adventures: Fantastic Four#35 - BTS) - Along with the Fantastic Four, Orrgo was invited to attend the Galactic Beauty Pageant as a guest judge. Meanwhile, the criminal organization A.I.M. found out about Orrgo and moved to acquire what they thought was his alien technology.
(Marvel Adventures: Fantastic Four#35) - A week later, at the welcoming party just before the pageant was to start, the Human Torch bumped into Orrgo and he alerted the Thing, who then attacked the alien. The Fantastic Four all battled Orrgo, with Orrgo managing to turn the Human Torch's flame against him and proclaiming his own vast mental powers. The quartet gained the upper hand but the fight quickly ended with the intervention of Thomas Zircon, who explained the situation and that an extraterrestrial would be a good participant to judge a would-be galactic beauty contest. Orrgo then showed his certificate of diplomatic immunity and a truce followed. The judges then entered the hall to assess the pageant's contestants, with the Thing sitting next to the Mentelleronite and the two exchanging jibes and descending into heated yet somewhat juvenile arguments. The Invisible Woman then removed herself from the bickering but discovered the A.I.M. agents. Her short-lived fray spilled out onto the judging area, with Orrgo surprised that the criminals were after his alien technology. The battle then burst outside with the A.I.M. forces heavily outnumbering the Fantastic Four. Orrgo then arrived and with a mental command ordered the A.I.M. agents to stop; the villains froze in their tracks. He asked one why they were after his technology when he had repeatedly stated that he had amazing mental powers. Orrgo then commanded the A.I.M. troops to get jobs at fast-food outlets as punishment.
Later, one of the pageant finalists, Chili Storm, was pronounced the winner of the contest by default, as the other finalists had been A.I.M. agents. One of her prizes was to go on a date with any one of the judges. She chose Orrgo, much to the chagrin of the Thing and the Human Torch, with the alien announcing his triumphant revenge.

There was an Orrgo that visited Earth-616 who was of unnamed extradimensional (and extraterrestrial) origin. However, nothing is made mention of an extradimensional home in this Marvel Adventures tale, only that he is an alien of intergalactic origin. Is this then the home dimension of the Orrgo that interacted with Earth-616? Maybe not as this Orrgo is significantly shorter than his Earth-616 counterpart (perhaps a younger offspring - especially given his rather juvenile disposition and limited use of his abilities).
