FIRST APPEARANCE: L.E.G.I.O.N. #61 (January 1994)
The L.E.G.I.O.N. met Gigantus of Motus on the planet Rigon during a Legion marketing meeting on the planet Rigon. Dox and the others had seen footage of Gigantus, a towering powerhouse on his home world who was so revered there were songs written in his honor. To their astonishment, they soon discovered that the natives of Motus were relatively small people, and that Gigantus was simply much larger than other natives of Motus — but small as well.
Gigantus was sensitive about his comparative height and bristled when Stealth laughed at him. And when the Telepath attempted to sympathize with Gigantus, the brute took offense and struck Telepath. Gigantus' leader, Kaa Muuso was seriously embarrassed by this behavior. But Gigantus' worth was soon tested as the L.E.G.I.O.N. and numerous other strange representatives moved to prevent the assassination of Rigon's leader, Ahrr Tyunng. Despite his heroism, Gigantus was offered to Dox by Kaa Muuso as consolation for his rudeness. Dox accepted and Gigantus accompanied them back to Cairn. (LEGION #61)
Soon after his arrival, the L.E.G.I.O.N. was taken over by Lyrl Dox's mind control and Gigantus was among those who fell under his spell. (L.E.G.I.O.N. #69) He was freed along with the others when Vril Dox returned to defeat Lyrl. (R.E.B.E.L.S #17) The extent of Gigantus' service since then is unknown.
