The Hippo was originally an ordinary hippopotamus named Mrs. Fluffy Lumpkins, even though he was a male. He was visited by the High Evolutionary, who turned him into a humanoid hippo, one of his New Men.
During his life of crime, he encountered Venom in his Spider-Man alias and had his leg eaten by him. He later joined up with the Redeemer and other villains who had their limbs eaten by "Spider-Man" in an attempt to capture and redeem "Spider-Man." Once outfitted with mechanical appendages, Hippo and the other villains fought "Spider-Man." Unfortunately, Hippo and Eleven ended up eaten by "Spider-Man" while the other villains were hospitalized.
Origin of the Species
Hippo is next seen as a member of White Rabbit's group The Menagerie as they were leaving the scene of a heist they pulled off involving easter eggs. They were eventually stopped by Spider-Man. Hippo and the rest of the Menagerie later reunite to commit a diamond heist, but they are once again defeated by Spider-Man.
It appears he posses super strength and, since hippopotamuses have very thick hides, he is probably very durable.
Hippo is also shown to be very adept in operating underwater.
