Terrex's form possesses the capacity for neither thought nor movement on its own. It requires the mind of another to control it. Under some circumstances, a person can be physically and mentally merged with Terrex. However, the human mind within it does give it some vulnerability.
Enhanced Abilities: Terrex has super human strength, endurance and durability.
Life Drain: Terrex is a being directly connected to the life-force of the planet on which it stands. In addition, it can affect the life-force of any and every being on that planet. At its whim, living things grow or die. It allegedly could siphon the life from the entire planet and everyone on it. It once drained the life from Daredevil's legs, such that he was paralysed below the waist for an hour. It apparently requires concentration to focus on its target(s) to be effective.
Plant Control and Communication: Terrex can manipulate living matter, such as by causing the sudden growth of immense trees and/or vines which move under its control. It can make its effects temporary or permanent and partial or complete.
When Thanos began his onslaught on Titan, one of the Eternal scientists there devised Terrex as a doomsday weapon, to destroy all life on Titan should Thanos succeed. However, Thanos' forces acted too quickly, and the scientist died before he could unleash his monster. Moondragon, the only other who understood the science behind the life-creature, brought its inert form to Earth, where she planned to unleash it should Thanos overcome this world as well.
Moondragon, then also going by the alias Madame MacEvil, attempted to form alliances on Earth for aid against Thanos. She unwittingly allied with Kerwin J. Broderick, a San Francisco based lawyer with a sterling reputation. However, Broderick was corrupt and power hungry, and he sought to use his weapons and agents to make himself king of San Francisco. Broderick ambushed Moondragon in her undersea base, nearly killing her, and then unleashed Terrex on Earth.
