The Ringmaster brings his new strong man a Thor costume for the show. When the circus crowd doubts the strong man is the real Thor, the Ringmaster hypnotizes them into believing he is. Thor spies Jane Foster with a date in the audience but the Ringmaster then hypnotizes Thor. 

Soon after, the Circus of Crime arrives at the museum to steal the Golden Bull. While the Clown and the Gambonnos distract the guards, Princess Python and the Ringmaster lead Thor to the massive statue while Cannonball burns a hole in the wall as an exit. Thor lifts and carries the Bull. However, more guards arrive and their gunfire snaps Thor out of his spell. He drops the Bull, accidentally pinning Princess Python to the wall. The guards call on Thor to surrender. When he hesitates, they open fire.

Their passion was scientific research. On one occasion, scientists discovered a substance called Terrogen Mist. But there was a significant risk to learn about its effect. The Mist would either unleash a deadly plague or erase the natural weaknesses in man.

Uncovering the mystery was so crucial that their supreme leader, Randac, decided to test the Terrogen Mist onto himself. As he got bathed in a chamber, the substance turned him into the very first Inhuman!
