Brok was an athletically built Canadian Medical Doctor who always spent a month each summer vacationing shirtless at the Lake of the Woods which is a real place tucked into the corner of Ontario that borders Manitoba and Minnesota, with parts of the lake sticking out into both those places. One of these summers, Brok encounters a strange, thick mist and, instead of avoiding it, decides to explore and sail through it. After an arduous journey he comes through it just before nightfall to encounter a large island where, tired from his ordeal, he falls asleep on the shore.

When he wakes up the next morning he feels strangely energized and notices that his pants are now Hulk-style shreds. When he picks up his medical kit, he realizes that he’s grown to basketball centre size proportions of over seven feet tall. Off he goes to explore the island and meets up with a native Indian who is over 12 feet tall and carrying Brok’s canoe under one arm. Brok, being a master of native languages, is able to converse with the Indian who reveals that his name is Torgon and that he is the son of the Great Chief of the place. This civilization turns out to be quite advanced because Torgon carries with him a ray gun and travelled in a zip-car.

Thus, Brok Windsor became a rugged he-man of a hero who adventured in the Canadian north in "the lands beyond the mists" with Torgon along as his sidekick.

Powers and Abilities

Aside from being over 12 feet tall and extremely strong, Brok was an excellent fighter.
