History: (Groot I#6) - The Clam emerged from the sea on to the New York City docks, where he found the alien adventurers Rocket Raccoon and Groot, whose friends Gamora and Drax had recommended they fight a villain during their visit to Earth. The Clam challenged them to battle, but he was quickly defeated when Groot punched him in the head.

Comments: Created by Jeff Loveness and Brian Kesinger.

The Clam has a lot of pearls on his costume; although they're typically associated with oysters, clams can produce pearls as well.

Okay, so he's only in two panels, but man, I am a sucker for a goofy animal-based villain, and I'm a double-sucker for sea creature villains.
