Donar was actually an extraterrestrial who, along with three other travelers, crash-landed on the planet Earth during the 1940s. Donar and his crew were discovered by the cybernetic Nazi scientist Werner Schmidt, aka "Brain Drain". Schmidt named each of the travelers after Teutonic gods, and as such named this alien Donar after the God of Thunder. Brain Drain controlled the Ring of the Nebulas and as such, manipulated Donar and the others into fighting the Invaders. Donar pitted his mighty war-axe against the team's powerhouse, the Sub-Mariner. Once freed from Brain Drain's mind control, the aliens realized that they could never return to the stars. Unwilling to remain abandoned on the planet Earth, they decided to take their own lives, by diving into a pit of acid in Brain Drain's laboratory[1].


Donar appeared to possess enhanced strength, durability and reflexes. He also wielded a war-axe that, when thrown, would immediately return to its wielder.
