Beowulf is a 6th Century Geatish warrior.

Under instructions from a being known as "the Shaper", Beowulf travelled to Castle Hrothgar in Daneland, to fight the monster Grendel. On the way there, Beowulf and his men took a detour into the Underworld where they rescued Nan-Zee, a Swedish scylfing warrior, from the demons who had been controlling her. Beowulf, Nan-Zee, and his companions Wiglaf and Hondscio continued onwards to Castle Hrothgar, but were again detoured, ending up in a bog where they battled "Swamp Men." Beowulf and his friends fell through a dimensional gateway beneath a patch of quicksand into a fiery underworld they referred to as Hell.

Beowulf later discovered that the only way to slay Grendel was with the nectar of the "zumak fruit." He encountered Dracula, a mysterious Lost Tribe of Israel, Ulysses accompanied by a troop of anonymous Greek warriors, Egyptian/Sumerian space aliens straight out of "chariots of gods", and the lost city of Atlantis.

Beowulf and Nan-Zee travelled from Atlantis to Crete, where they finally got their hands on some zumak fruit in the labyrinth of King Minos where Beowulf fought a Minotaur that was being controlled by Satan. Because Satan has made Dracula his heir over Grendel, Grendel killed Satan by plunging a stalactite into his back. The Minotaur died, and Beowulf ate some zumak fruit, granting him supernatural strength on par with Grendel. Beowulf and Nan-Zee made their way back to Daneland in order to slay Grendel who had taken Satan's place as king of the Underworld.

Beowulf and Claw were recruited by Wonder Woman and Stalker for a mission to slay the Demon Lord Dgrth.
