Powers/Abilities: The Giant One's body was composed of crystalized ice, allowing it some degree of durability. If it were attacked physically, the attack would smash through the monster rather than harming it. It had superhuman strength sufficient enough to briefly hold Thor but was especially prone to heat, being made of ice.
(Thor in "Melt the Monster") - Noticing the Giant One rampaging through a city, Thor confronted the ice creature. Surprised to find himself flying through the creature, rather than harming it, Thor quickly found himself in the Giant One's grasp. Realizing the monster was made of ice, Thor charged Mjolnir with lightning and circled the Giant One, creating a vortex of heat that melted the monster, leaving only water in its wake.

The Kenner Give-a-Show Projector slides had a copyright 1968 Marvel Comics Group, meaning that the characters are owned by Marvel.
The Giant One was called such by Thor, who also referred to it as "a giant of gleaming crystal." The story's title simply referred to the creature as "the Monster."
