Paul Duvall doesn't merely have a heart of stone...he has a body of stone too. A chemist native to France, Duvall gained the power to transform people and objects to stone with a touch after accidentally spilling his chemicals on his left palm. Using his touch to turn himself into a living, mobile statue, Duvall became the Grey Gargoyle, using his super strength and stone touch to rob jewelry stores. But what Duvall truly desired was immortality; traveling to America, Duvall attempted to steal Thor's hammer, and turned the Towering Thunderer to stone in their first fight, but was defeated by Thor's alter ego, Don Blake. Since then, the Grey Gargoyle has not only plagued Thor, but other heroes as well, most notably Iron Man. Stone isn't easily broken, and neither is the Grey Gargoyle.
Powers and Abilities
As the Grey Gargoyle, Duvall is super strong and invulnerable. His greatest power is the ability to turn any object -living or inanimate- to stone with his left palm. However, the effect only lasts for one hour.
