Given my frequent focus on lame super-villains, I feel obliged to report when one of them gets an upgrade. Some time ago, I wrote about the Man-Elephant, a former She-Hulk foe, as one of my Thanksgiving Turkeys. He makes a return in She Hulk #25, where Peter David reintroduces Manfred Haller at the end of his rope. Broke, ruined by Tony Stark, he heads to Africa in search of answers and direction. Once there, he is directed to an old wise woman:
The gem, probably a shard of Cyttorak, transforms Haller, just in time to stop a band of rebel thugs from raiding the village. The now Ganesha-powered Behemoth charges forth, a Juggernaut level threat with a major grudge against She-Hulk.
I couldn't help but notice something else; in my previous post I wrote: "Man-Elephant was last seen traveling in India, where his resemblance to Ganesha can usually score him a free meal and a place to crash." Eerily prophetic, eh?
