History: (Unbeatable Squirrel Girl II#29) - Summoned by Loki to Chtt-Chrt, Hocky Hoof Hank, also called Thorse, was summoned to help protect Nancy Whitehead and he fought alongside other summoned heroes to fight the Silver Surfer, including Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Cosmo, Beta Ray Bill, Ego the Living Planet, Machine Man, Flatman, Moon Girl, Spider-Man, Doop, Sleepwalker, Throg, Strong Guy, Teen Cyclops, D-Man, Puck, Howard the Duck and Valkyrie. During the fight, the Surfer knocked Hocky Hoof Hank aside and Loki cast spells channeling the entities of Sal'tah'Goth, Sheila, Ulyagoth, and Wun'ulath. Soon, Loki returned the heroes magically to their home locations.
(Unbeatable Squirrel Girl II#30 (fb) - BTS) - After becoming friends with Squirrel Girl and her allies, Hocky Hoof Hank joined Squirrel Girl, Nancy Whitehead and Beta Ray Bill for some horseback riding, where he acted as Beta Ray Bill's horse. During their time together, a photo was taken of Beta Ray Bill riding Hocky Hoof Hank and Squirrel Girl and Nancy on their own horses.

they all made friends in space.

Profile by Chadman.
Hocky Hoof Hank should be distinguished from:
Sal'tah'Goth(Unbeatable Squirrel Girl II#29 - BTS) - Loki summoned "the sensible sageness of Sal-Tah-Goth" in battle, allowing him to create illusions of Squirrel Girl and Drax the Destroyer.
Sheila(Unbeatable Squirrel Girl II#29 - BTS) - Loki summoned "the Protective Shields of Sheila" during a battle but the shields were easily broken and Loki worried that Sheila would be disappointed.
Ulyagoth(Unbeatable Squirrel Girl II#29 - BTS) - Loki summoned "the gibbering madness of Ulyagoth" in battle but later canceled the spell. Ulyagoth jumped from his chair in excitement only to return to reading his book.
Wun'ulath(Unbeatable Squirrel Girl II#29 - BTS) - Loki summoned "the summoning wisps of Wun'ulath" in battle, allowing him to call upon heroes from Earth and cosmic beings to help in a fight. Wun'ulath initially felt distraught but was bolstered up by Loki's encouraging words.
