In the futuristic world of 1982, humankind
learned, much to its utter dismay, that a collapsed
star dubbed Gorath was on a collision course with
Earth. The UN planned to invoke a radical bid
for survival: they would have to alter the orbit
of the planet in order to escape the path of the
incoming celestial terror. While several attempts
to study the approaching star were met to no avail,
huge rockets were erected in Antarctica, prepared
to thrust Planet Earth to safety.
As the ignition began, an unexpected twist of
fate shook the very foundations of the Earthlings'
plan for survival. The intense flames cracked
and crumbled the icy tomb of a slumbering beast.
Disturbed from its rest, the giant walrus Maguma
was furious, and the enraged animal attacked several
of the bases lying in the vicinity of the enormous
rockets. A nearby VTOL ship witnessed the destruction
that the creature's wrath wrought upon this much-needed
cure for Earth's impending doom, and, realizing
the creature was acting only on instinct, a powerful
laser was released straight into the flesh of
the beast. Maguma was killed, and his brief reign
of terror finally subsided.
