History: (Marvel Mini-Books: The Mighty Thor) - When Odin's ravens Hugin and Munin did not return from the mountains of Jotunheim, Thor flew to the mountains to investigate. In the mountains' deepest cavern, Thor found the caged ravens with their winged tied. Before Thor could rescue the ravens, the beast Lutefisk appeared and breathed fire at Thor, who removed his cape and allowed it to catch fire. Thor then tossed the flaming cape at Lutefisk, temporarily blinding the cyclopean creature. While Lutefisk was blinded, Thor freed Hugin and Munin before Lutefisk returned to the fight. Thor eventually managed to strike Lutefisk in the eye, downing him, and then flew back to Asgard.

According to my internet research, lutefisk is a type of Norwegian fish. Perhaps the monster Lutefisk got his name from his choice of food?

The Marvel Mini-Books were VERY small comic books that were sold inside plastic eggs dispensed from gumball machines for a nickel in the 1960s. Each book was only about the size of a quarter and continued a basic story. Six Marvel Mini-Books were made, including the Amazing Spider-Man, the Mighty Thor, the Incredible Hulk, Captain America and surprise inclusions Sgt. Nick Fury and Millie the Model.

Since the comic featuring Lutefisk was in black & white, it was impossible to determine its eye and hair color.
