Classification: Extradimensional race
Location/Base of Operations: Throng (wherever that is...this creature has a bit of a Negative Zone vibe to it)
Known Members: Unnamed hatchling
Affiliations: Fantastic Four (Human Torch/Johnny Storm, Invisible Woman/Sue Richards, Mr. Fantastic/Reed Richards, Thing/Ben Grimm)
First Appearance: Fantastic Four: True Story#1 (September, 2008)
Powers/Abilities: Nothing is known about the extent of physical powers of an adult Throngite, but a hatchling possessed superhuman strength on par with the Fantastic Four's Thing (Class 85). It possessed a naturally grown shoulder armor with at least five protruding spikes, two tusks and at least six horns on the head and three horns. It possessed clawed hands and its lower extremeties were insect-like. Soft tissue between the legs were its natural weak spot (and the poor thing got hit in the soft parts by Thing :( ).
Traits: As far as we know Throngites were intelligent non-humanoids with a strong affection for their offspring. They laid eggs....which somehow could end up in other dimensions...but they were pretty tough and the hatchlings could even survive a crash landing on a planet inside the eggs. Nothing else is known about them.
Type: (Hatchling) Bilaterally symmetric non-humanoid quadruped
Eyes: (Hatchling only) Two (on head; solid yellow)
Fingers: (Hatchling only) Four (including opposing thumb)

History: (Fantastic Four: True Story#1 (fb) - BTS) - A Throngite egg somehow crash landed in the middle of NYC and hatched.
(Fantastic Four: True Story#1) - The Fantastic Four fought the confused, newly hatched Throngite. Mr. Fantastic was sure the Throngites would be glad to have the hatchling returned to them and throw a party with the Fantastic Four. Reed then ordered Thing to strike the Throngite under the tharsal muscle (Ben assumed it was the fruits and berries hanging between the Throngites' legs) and Human Torch to keep the creature distracted. Human Torch and Thing knocked it out with a hit between the legs by Thing and a flamestrike by the Torch while Mr. Fantastic was distracted by Invisible Woman, who felt depressed. A group of mimes, who had booked the space of the fight to perform, waited for Invisible Woman to haul the young Throngite away.

As far as I am aware of a Throngite hatchling was seen up to this point, but if a hatchling is as tall as this creature one can only imagine how gigantic an adult Throngite had to be. Because we don't know if Throngites went through further changes while growing up I listed hatchling only in this race's physical description.
