Gorko adopted the identity of Demonstaff and was hell-bent on finding his wife. However, he believed his initial mishap that left him hospitalized was not an accident. He believed Dunbar sabotaged his experiment in order to get him out of the picture so he could steal Ellene away, and Demonstaff wanted revenge on both of them. He scanned the myriad dimensions in search of his wife, and when he finally found her in Elsewhen, the realm of Warlord Kargul, he forced Dargo Ktor, by kidnapping his wife Salla, to reunite with Beta Ray Bill and Thunderstrike to go there and bring Ellene back to him.
Demonstaff was becoming more powerful and was soon manipulating reality at will. At the challenge of Dargo's wife, Gorko was determined to prove how powerful he was by traveling back through time and correct the events of the past. Demonstaff arrived at the precise moment he was going to initially test his equipment, and attempted to eliminate Dunbar. Firing an energy blast from his staff, Gorko missed Dunbar and hit the control panel in front his younger self and caused the disaster he sought to prevent. It was then he realized Dunbar was not the one responsible for his failure. It was Gorko, himself, that caused the accident which turned him into a being made of pure energy and took away his humanity. Filled with confusion and grief, Demonstaff was through trying to correct the past, and began collapsing the countless dimensions on top of one another in order to hasten their inevitable demise. Demonstaff journeyed to Elsewhen and convinced Dargo to go with him to be by his wife's side, but Thor and the others tracked them to a void that exists between alternate timelines in order to renew their battle. Demonstaff summoned creatures from another world to do his fighting for him, but Beta Ray Bill destroyed his staff and sent the beasts back to where they came. Kargul observed these events in his Imaging Pool, and Ellene couldn't stand by and merely watch any longer. She jumped in the pool and confronted her husband accepting whatever fate he had in store for her. Demonstaff felt beaten now that he no longer had his weapon to alter reality, but Ellene confessed that the Dimensionizer never worked. The power was in him the whole time. Gorko realized he still loved his wife and wanted to atone for his mistakes. He reversed all the damage he caused - including returning the members of the Thor Corps back to their respective realities.
