Googam is an alien child, the son of Goom from Planet X. A week after Goom's capture, Googam emerged from near where his father landed, and captured Mark Langlely, the man who brought his father to earth, and his family captive while his powers matured and grew. Although
Googam's presence at the Langley house was detected by some of the locals the stories were disbelieved by others.
Googam believed that he had reached the height of his power, and prepared to execute the Langleys. Billy Langley claimed that he could beat Googam at a game of tag, and led him back into the mountains. Billy cleverly led Googam straight into quicksand seemingly killing him.
