Marvel Comics

Introduced in the Headmasters four-issue miniseries, the three Monsterbots joined with Fortress Maximus and other like-minded Autobots who wanted to leave Cybertron in order to escape the war on the planet. Relocating to the world of Nebulos, they were followed by Scorponok's Decepticon forces, who began wreaking havoc on the planet after members of both factions bonded to Nebulan natives as "Headmasters". Attempting to defend Nebulos's beautiful Mercury Gardens against a Decepticon attack, the Monsterbots were overpowered by the Decepticon Headmasters and forced to retreat. They later departed Nebulos with the rest of Maximus’s team and were integrated into the larger Autobot army on Earth.

In issue #41 he was part of a select greeting party involved in the first meeting with the Ark's crew. He was introduced as Fortress Maximus' information officer.

Grotueque last appeared in issue #76, in a story called "The Still Life".
