Fictional character biography

Amphibion is an amphibious creature from the planet Xantares, considered a powerful fighter, the Xantarean supreme warrior. He was mutated by the Xantarean Grand Council of Elders, and sent to claim the Sphere of Ultimate Knowledge on the home planet of the Watcher. Amphibion fought the Hulk over the Sphere and lost, and was exiled from Xantares when he returned after his failure. ["Tales to Astonish" #73-74]

He later assisted the Sagittarians, along with the Hulk, Torgo, and Dark-Crawler against the Galaxy Master and the Abomination. ["Incredible Hulk" #269-270]

Amphibion retuned to Xantares with the aid of the Hulk but found it decimated, and was determined to help rebuild it. ["Incredible Hulk" #471-474]
