The Thing (Granger) is an extremely hostile shape-shifting extraterrestrial organism. The Thing has the ability to assimilate other life forms in order to survive and flourish. The original physical characteristics of The Thing are unknown as it could have assimilated hundreds if not thousands of other species. Like the Necromorphs, It also can truly scare the Orks. The biology of The Thing is the same as the body it has replicated or is in the process of replicating. The Thing has the ability to heal itself from immense damage, however it is vulnerable to fire since it destroys the creature at a cellular level. It is very tolerant of cold, placing itself in cryogenic stasis until found by unsuspecting victims. When changing form, it bursts open and allows a variety of strange and terrifying forms and bits of previously assimilated anatomy to form, such as: tentacles, insect like limbs, eyes, teeth, claws, even faces, eventually re-arranging its cellular structure to mimic its desired shape. The Thing is also capable of continuing normal functions even when lacking eyes, ears, sense of smell or other ways of interacting with the environment. This shows that not only has The Thing evolved an unrivaled capability to mimic any life form, but has also evolved a way of being aware of its environment. As of now, the Multiverse now has a few planets infected by the The Thing.
