Thrunk is the disembodied spirit of Necross "Hahaha" The Mad in the body of a giant stone statue. He appears in Church and State dressed as a Most Holy to state his claim to the Papal Throne. Thrunk is eventually blown to bits by Cerebus, using Weisshaupt's canons.
Thrunk bears a resemblance to The Thing of the Fantastic Four comics.
