* And no discussion of this would be complete without the MarvelUniverse's High Evolutionary, a man who has made a career of accelerating the evolution of various species which, naturally, all happen to be anthropomorphic afterwards.
** At one point, a ragtag group of Avengers goes in to bust up the High Evolutionary to stop him from being... evil or something. The climax involves the villain and an Avenger both hyper-evolving into major godhood and right out of this realm. The kicker was the Avenger was Hercules, who already ''was'' a PhysicalGod.
** Easily the most absurd thing the HE ever managed was in his first appearance, where he hyper-evolved a wolf. This evolution came complete with knowledge of martial arts from the future.
** This is trumped by him fighting Hulk [[ItMakesSenseInContext so Hulk would kill him]], when he changed the "evolutionary levels" of the ''Earth'', converting the ground beneath Hulk into tar (like tarpits, you know, because tarpits are like stone age, man?), then lava, then ''gas''.

Land Dreugh tend to be hardier, hit harder, and gain a natural "shock" attack in addition to gaining the ability to live on land. However, as a sort of MultiFormBalance, Land Dreugh [[WasOnceAMan lose whatever intelligence they still have]] in their aquatic forms, becoming little better than vicious beasts on land.
