to serve him. Before his transformation Anak was a convicted criminal, although, all memories of his past had been erased from his mind during the time of transformation. He was named after the giants of biblical lore and according to the Asgardian
Thunder god, Thor
, his power rivaled that of the Olympian god Hercules
. Anak would stand in battle with the Mighty Thor and his comrades against the Man-Beast
and New Men all of which were creations of the High Evolutionary.
