Fictional character biography
Frank Johnson's powers manifested at the age of 33. After receiving them, not knowing his own strength, he accidentally caused the ceiling of his house to cave in, killing his wife and daughter. Not wanting to go to jail, Frank went on the run, becoming a firefighter for a short time until the publicity from his miraculous saves drew too much attention. He now works for Damage Control, assisting in their mission of cleaning up after superhuman incidents.
Frank is being considered as a "potential recruit" for the Initiative program, according to Civil War: Battle Damage Report.
Monstro is featured in the clean-up efforts after World War Hulk. He works in the Search and Rescue division, looking for people left behind after New York was evacuated and heavily damaged. He teams up with another employee who can detect life signs. Frank focuses on the more dangerous buildings, as it falling debris is little problem for him. In one instance, thinking he was rescuing a human, Frank rescues the artificial intelligence of the alien ship the Hulk commanded.
Powers and abilities
Monstro possesses superhuman strength and endurance. The origin of his powers is unknown, and it is unknown whether he is related to the Golden Age character of the same name who was the giant son of Mars.
