(All-New Inhumans#2 (fb) ) - Affected by the Terrigen mist Thahn Ng went through Terrigenesis. When his family tried to save him from the military by opening his cocoon they were burned alive along with Thahn's cocoon.

(All-New Inhumans#2) - Thahn invaded the dreams of the Inhumans on the R.I.V. to show them how the military of Sin-Cong slew all Inhumans during Terrigenesis, including himself and his human relatives. He begged the Inhumans to avenge them. Crystal woke up and was approached by Swain, who told her that everyone on board was having the same bad dream.

(All-New Inhumans#3) - Swain drugged herself to fall asleep again to meet with the Inhuman responsible for the nightmare the night before. The Inhuman introduced himself as Thahn Ng in her dream. She explained to him that he had become an Inhuman like her when Sin-Cong was hit by the Terrigen cloud and that he apparently only existed as a dream at this point. Thahn grew angry with Swain when lied about the extent of her powers because he could read her thoughts.


(All-New Inhumans#4) - Thahn controlled the R.I.V. and was delighted by the soldiers' terror and pain. He read Swain's dark thoughts and knew she would like to punish the Commissar as well for trying to murder her friends in Sin-Cong. Controlling Swain Thahn kept controlling Hub, but Gorgon attacked the mind-controlled Swain and when that failed gave her a motivational speech to help her drive Thahn out of her body herself. She succeeded because she is strong-willed and stuff.

(All-New Inhumans#4 - BTS) - Thahn returned to Sin-Cong and found a new body to possess, the former Commanding General Hoy's comatose head. He had the seemingly awakened head placed on top of the Commissar robot.

(All-New Inhumans#4) - Thahn, controlling the Commissar robot and Hoy's head, visited the former young Commissar in prison to tell him he would now rule the people loyal to the true Sin-Cong while Hoy's son stayed in prison and the Inhumans repaired the catastrophe the young Commissar brought on the country. Thahn had never been so certain about his purpose in life.

He was first called Thahn, but was also called Thanh because typo.

BTW I have already seen other websites referring to this character as the "Living Dream", but in the comic this was only used to describe him by Swain. Thahn never used a codename.
