The mailman Howie Bridger was chosen by Loki Laufeyson in one of his plots against Thor Odinson. Loki modified this mortal so that he would look like the Man-Beast and rampage through the city of Oberlin, Ohio, saying not a single word—although the original Man-Beast was able to speak. This attracted Thor's attention. Thor battled this person but, eventually, the false Man-Beast collapsed and returned to his previous identity. A policeman identified Bridger, explaining that, while the person looked like Bridger and had his clothes, was sixty-something years old while Bridger had been twenty-something until then.
