Hairbag was recruited by Mister Sinister to be a member of his Nasty Boys, whose sole purpose was to harass the government-sponsored team X-Factor.[2]

During those altercations, Hairbag often fought against Wolfsbane, his opposite number. In the Nasty Boys' final fight, Hairbag was captured along with his teammate Slab and taken to a holding cell by X-Factor. While he waited for his lawyer to negotiate bail, Hairbag and Slab were broken out of prison by the Mutant Liberation Front and returned to the Nasty Boys shortly afterwards.

He retained his mutant powers after the events of M-Day and together with Slab and Gorgeous George opened a lab for MGH's production.[1]

Recently he was captured by a cyborg-enhanced William Stryker and mind-controlled into working for his cult, along with Sauron, Pyro, and numerous other mutants. Sabretooth and his Weapon X-Force team managed to free him from Mentallo's mind-control, along with the others. He then subsequently became one of the many mutants to follow Creed back into battle & take out Stryker permanently. [3]

When the Upstarts resurfaced, Hairbag and the other Nasty Boys were killed only to be used as bait to lure out the X-Men.[4]
