- In X-Men, Garokk appeared as a villain in the two part story "Savage Land, Strange Heart". It was revealed that long ago he ruled the Savage Land with his great power until a powerful enemy that was the High Evolutionary defeated him. His foe calmed the raging power of the Savage Land depleting Garokks power who was banished into a rocky prison of a giant stone head leaving powerless. Garokk remained in thus state for many years as he remained trapped and unable to interact. This was until the X-Men battled Mr. Sinister along with his henchmen at the Citadel. In the fight, Storm used her elemental powers with these unwittingly awakening Garokk who was weakened but alive. To increase his powers, he intended to tap into the geothermal powers of the Savage Land with the process turning him into a giant. However, Sauron who sought revenge on Garokk and power for himself decided to tap into the energy. The result was the titanic Garokk and Sauron coming into conflict with one another with the two's devastating attack destroying their new found power. Garokk in the aftermath was returned to his rocky prison form and lamented at how close he was to his victory.
