It can be assumed that Daimon's history was much like his 616 counterpart, but only information confirmed in the story is used above.
I don't have the time to index all of the What The? stuff to tell which stories occur in the same realities. Presumably this is a unique reality, Earth-9078.Profile by Mike Podgorski. Improved scans by Markus Raymond
Character name has no known connections to
The Edi-Tor was a member of an all-powerful race, embodied as a giant floating head. It was he who informed Daimon of each subsequent name change. He was presumably modeled after editor Terry Kavanagh, who edited this story.
Actually, that image looks a lot like Al Milgrom, aka Editori-Al, to me.
Elfthu was a giant, elf-like creature who handed out presents. When Daimon defeated him, the crowd grew angry.
F'rahsti was a giant snowman. When Daimon defeated him, the crowd grew confused.
Killer Kane and the Missile-Toes
Killer Kane was an evil, sentient candy cane. It was assisted by the Missile-Toes, which were flying disembodied human toes.
The Reign-of-Terror-Deer were flying reindeer, who were presumably troublesome.
