Dicero was an evolved rhinoceros created by the High Evolutionary as one of his New Men, animals given humanoid form and intelligence. He was one of many of the Evolutionary's subjects to stay behind on Earth while his master left for space, and lived in a hamlet on Wundagore Mountain.

When Wolverine and Kitty Pryde came to the New Men's home in search of Magneto, Dicero donned a suit of armor attempting to scare them away until he learned of their good intentions.[1] When the villainous Man-Beast later used his mental powers to turn several New Men under his sway, Dicero was one of several who took up arms against his army under Kitty Pryde's leadership.[2]

His name likey comes from Diceros, the genus of the black rhinoceros.
