Perhaps the most enduring member of that long-gone Age of Monsters, Fin Fang Foom is also the most complex and intriguing. Piecing together this monstrosity's is patchwork at best, and often somewhat contradictory. Ulysses mentioned an encounter with the beast once, but refused to go into details, simply stating that the story would be told when it was finished between the two. Using correspondence from Dr. Chen Liuchow (the gentleman who first unleashed the ancient dragon upon the modern world), the very reliable Reed Richards, and the Avenger known as Iron Man, here is what I have pieced together for Elsa's project.

According to Iron Man, the creature once thought to be native of China's Valley of the Sleeping Dragon was actually the navigator of a starship from a planet called Kakaranathara (though Iron Man notes this world is sometimes referred to as Maklu IV). Theirs was a race of peace, but the alien we know as Fin Fang Foom - meaning "He Whose limbs shatter mountains and whose back scrapes the sun" - and a group of dissidents escaped, setting out to conquer other worlds. Arriving at some point in what we now consider ancient China, Foom and his cohorts were confronted by a group of natives, and a member of the dragon's crew was slain. The rest, not ready to start their conquest (please keep in mind that these Kakaranatharians were apparently young for their race and not yet fully grown to the roughly 32-foot length we associate with Fin Fang Foom), used their natural shape-shifting powers to mimic human forms and blended into this new world, biding their time. That is except for Fin Fang Foom. Wishing to keep a sort of "back-up" in hiding in case the rest of the crew failed or were killed (as at least two two more were over time), Foom was placed in a well-hidden tomb and given a potent herb that placed him into a long slumber.
