Thor #135 Synopsis by Marvel Comics
The Man-Beast, who represents the evolution of the wolf one million years hence and has knowledge of superior fighting styles, attacks Thor. The High Evolutionary, using his sub-sonic discordion, drives off the Man-Beast, who seals himself in the genetic chamber and makes his own New Men. A battle of royale between New Men ensues. The Man-Beast attacks the High Evolutionary but Thor pummels the beast into unconsciousness. The Knights force the "Men-Beasts" into a "star chamber" shuttle which launches them into the galaxy Dromisana.

With the threat passed, the High Evolutionary removes his helmet, revealing that he is human. He converts Wundagore into a starship and departs Earth, searching for a new world for his New Men.
