Horrorshow is big, looking very much on the stout side and not exactly the brightest mind in the Oktober Guard. Still, his superiors have to like him for one thing. Whatever they tell him to do, he does whatever it takes to get the job done. Either with graceful subtlety or with brute force, he doesn't ask too many questions. His size and clumsy gait hide a deceptive speed and strength of a polar bear.
A Real American Hero comics continuity - Marvel
Horrorshow joined his comrades to retrieve a crashed spy plane in the heart of Afghanistan. It didn't take long to meet his team's American counterpart, G.I. Joe. An intense firefight between the two devolved into a fistfight where Horrorshow proved that two Joes trying to take him on proved to be no trouble at all. A team-up with the Joes bring him to the Cobra stronghold in Iran. He joined with his leader Colonel Brekhov and teammate Daina to infiltrate one side of the stronghold. When Brekhov attempted to betray the Joes and take the RTV that carried the plane, he is only too happy to obey. He was left behind with his Oktober Guard teammates fending for themselves against Cobra Troopers.
