(Defenders II#1) - When the extradimensional sorcerer Yandroth tapped into the Earth goddess Gaea's powers, he summoned the powerful entities known as "The Ravagers of Creation" who, when joined together, would destroy the entire world upon which they stood. Each of the four Ravagers represented the personification of one of the ancient elements, powerfully manipulating each element. When they drew together in a circle and combined their powers, the world would cease. The Defenders worked to delay the Ravagers' gathering, each trying unsuccessfully to hold off one of the Ravagers. However, before the Ravagers could complete their spell, the four heroes combined their attacks on each of the Earth-themed Ravager and knocked him aside. When the spell finished incompletely, the Ravagers disappeared.
