The Talent Scout led a team onto a celestial body the size of the Moon in a "backwater zone of space" to attack a telepathic organism. He claimed he could feel that the organism wanted to learn and sadistically instructed his team to electrocute it because he wanted to hear it scream. The Entity absorbed the Talent Scout and he became combined and entrapped within the Entity. He was presumed dead by his team. (COMIC: Four Dimensions)
When the Doctor encountered an aspect of the entity on Rokhandi, he let it read his mind. (COMIC: The Friendly Place) The Talent Scout in the main portion of the Entity was awoken by the thought of a time machine, and emerged from the Entity.
When the Doctor attempted to take over SERVEYOUinc to end their intrusions in his life, he arrived just after the Scout had awoken and murdered the company's CEO, Enoch Thorne. The Scout tempted the Doctor with the return of the Time Lords and made him the Chief Executive. (COMIC: The Rise and Fall) Alice made the Doctor remember his past, and the Entity's containment tube exploded, destroying SERVEYOUinc City. (COMIC: The Other Doctor)
After the destruction of SERVYOUinc City, the Talent Scout stowed away on the TARDIS. The Doctor wanted to track down the Entity and let ARC pilot the TARDIS back to when he and the Entity were first separated. The Talent Scout tried to tempt each of the Doctor's companions and failed. Alice and ARC threw him out the TARDIS doors and into space. (COMIC: Four Dimensions)
In 1931 Mississippi, the Talent Scout was controlling the talent of people. He was foiled by the Doctor, Alice and Jones, but escaped. This was the Doctor's first meeting with the Talent Scout from his perspective. (COMIC: What He Wants...)
While the Doctor and his companions were involved in the Amstron-J'arrodic airfight, the Scout disguised himself as Alice's mother and attempted to acquaintance himself with them. After the Doctor deduced he wasn't Alice's mother, he teleported away and told the Doctor they'd meet again. (COMIC: The Eternal Dogfight / The Infinite Astronaut)
