(Marvel Two-in-One#44 (fb) - BTS) - Krokarr, Manduu, and Y'Androgg were all members of a race of giants which came from a star located in the same dimension as Olympus. The trio stealthily invaded Olympus while its gods were suffering from the after-effects of over-celebration during the Spring Festival. The giants banished most of the gods, binding Zeus in the Tower of the Sun, and severely devastated much of Olympus.


(Marvel Two-in-One#44) - Y'Androgg was sleeping in an Olympian castle when Hercules and the Thing invaded. Y'Androgg pelted the pair with giant fruits but was unable to catch the smaller invaders. When they fled into their pegasus-pulled chariot he leapt after them but missed, and fell several hundred feet to the cliff face below. Injured but alive, he could only watch while the pair departed to go to rescue the Olympians.

   This entire story is told in flashback by Ben Grimm to the children of Camp Runamuck. Since it is a retelling, some elements of the story may be exaggerated or outright false. However, the story contains some elements of truth as the Mighty Avengers: Most Wanted Files (2007) confirmed the invasion as having occurred and confirmed some of the Olympian locations mentioned in the story as being real.
