Fictional character biography

|Team affiliations||First Line|
Razor sharp claws and teeth
Yeti is an Inhuman mutated by the Terrigen Mist.
During a battle while serving with the First Line he entered the fray but lost control and became a raging beast; his team mate Rapunzel used a piece of hair to distract him and he quickly calmed down.
After this he was found by a Skrull woman named Khoyra. She manipulated Yeti into helping her with an invasion of Earth. The First Line repelled the attack, and Khoyra was killed by an unknown cause. Yeti took the body back to his temple and refused to leave it as it decayed.
When Havok and Polaris were searching for a mutant that Cerebro had located, Yeti threw a boulder at them because he wanted to be alone. This knocked them out the sky. When they searched the temple, Yeti attacked them. The X-Men came to support Havok and Lorna but Yeti's rage overcame him. After a short battle, Pixie, another ex-member of the First Line arrived with the Inhuman Royal Family and turned Yeti to stone temporarily and explained the situation to the X-Men before allowing them to leave.
While looking for Crystal, Human Torch arrived in the Himalayas and took refuge in a cave during a storm where he encountered Yeti. Upon seeing Human Torch's powers, Yeti mistook Human Torch for an Inhuman. Shocked by Yeti's appearance, Human Torch threw fireballs at him. Running from the fire balls, Yeti fled into Attilan warning the other Inhumans that they were under attack.

It has been speculated that this Yeti is either a mutant or an intelligent Wendigo. Originally, the character was actually given the codename of Wendigo. Despite their similar physical appearances, the second Yeti has no connection to the other one.
