    Laxtan was probably a good cat-burglar and a ruthless assassin. He used an energy-ray hand-gun.

History: (Marvel Holiday Special 1993/6 (fb) - BTS) - Xtoral Laxtan had some shady businesses with Thanos the Titan. Laxtan betrayed Thanos during one of their business, then Thanos punished by him killing his family. Xtoral Laxtan took a blood oath to avenge his family.

(Marvel Holiday Special 1993/6 (fb)) - To kill the Titan, Laxtan sneaked into Thanos base using the aeration conduits. He reached Thanos and was shooting at him when the 5-years old Gamora flung her doll onto Laxtan's face. Laxtan's shot destroyed only the computer panel in front of Thanos, and the Titan fired an energy blast that incinerated the alien criminal.
