Goom is a fictional character, a comic book extraterrestrial from the Marvel Comics universe who first appeared in Tales of Suspense vol. 1 #15.

Fictional character biography[edit]

Goom is an alien from Planet X who attempted to conquer the Earth. He was defeated and returned to his home planet by other aliens from Planet X, but his son Googam soon followed in his father's footsteps. At some point, he was captured by the alien Collector and imprisoned alongside other monsters. These captives were freed by the Mole Man, but were defeated by the Beast, Giant-Man, the Hulk and the Thing, and Mister Fantastic exiled them into the Negative Zone.[volume & issue needed] Somehow, Goom and other monsters returned to Earth and took up residence on the Mole Man's Monster Isle. On a Valentine's Day, Goom attempted to find a human mate on Earth, but the goddess Venus instead set him up (somewhat against his will) with the alien Shivoor.[volume & issue needed] Goom vanished afterwards, leaving his son Googam alone on Earth.[volume & issue needed] The microscopic dictator Tim Boo Baa took advantage of Googam's search for his father to manipulate Googam into bringing him to Earth, where he was defeated by Googam's allies, the "Fin Fang Four".[volume & issue needed] Goom was later captured by S.H.I.E.L.D. and placed in the custody of their Howling Commandos Monster Force.[volume & issue needed]

Xemnu the Titan later created a duplicate of Goom which was later destroyed by the Hulk.[1]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Goom has mental powers and an immense head. He had advanced technology which was seen in Tales of Suspense vol. 1 #15 including a spaceship, a disintegration-inducing "Neutron Ray", and a time machine, which had the ability to change the age of others.
