“The Man-Thing stumbles upon an altercation between two scientists, Paul Benton and Professor Marshall, (who are looking for new renewable energy sources) and the Cult of Entropy. The Cult threatens the two scientists with their Golden Brain. When the globe is exposed from it’s carrying case, it causes the Man-Thing pain, and so the Man-Thing attempts to attack them. In defense, the Cult members command the brain to create a monster which battles the Man-Thing. During the fight, the Man-Thing impales the glob with a tree causing it to explode, the feedback causes the globe which contains the Golden Brain to explode and land in the swamps muck. With the Cult trying to collect the brain back, the scientists are able to get away and continue on their mission.

As the Brain is washed away, it recalls the events that led it to being where it is, as it turns out the brain is really Joseph Timms, the man who was mutated into the Glob and battled the Hulk, his brain surviving the conflict and getting into the hands of the Cult of Entropy. The Brain eventually washes ashore, where it uses it’s powers to transform the muck around it into a new human body, and the reborn Timms. With no memory of his previous lives, the being once known as Timms, wanders the swamp.

While in Miami, the Cult members report back to their leader Yagzan, who is not impressed and demands that they go back to the swamps near Citrusville and get the Golden Brain back, at any cost. While back in Citrusville, Benton and Marshall begin building their latest scientific creation: Omegaville, a completely energy self sufficient city. The construction is being silently watched by the Man-Thing. While the construction continues, the two scientists find Timms, and take him in, clothing him and giving him a job on the site, with no name of his own, they call him Joe. The operations are later explained to Richard Rory, who has come to the site to get the story for the radio station he works for.

That night, the Cult of Entropy returns to the swamps, and Yagzan begins tracking the Golden Brain, when they find it in the form of “”Joe””, Yagzan takes control of Joe and he transforms into the Glob once more. They set Glob on a rampage which destroys much of Omegaville. This prompts the Man-Thing to enter the fray, and to battle the Glob, beating it until it loses it’s corporal form and crumbles into a pile of muck. When Yagzan tries to get control of the creature again, the clay then engulfs his body killing him. With the threat made by the Cult over, the Man-Thing leaves for it’s home in the swamp, leaving all the witnesses to figure the aftermath out for themselves.
