The 20 feet tall creature Moomba was a member of an unknown alien race that wanted to conquer Earth and seeded themselves all over the world in the guise of wooden statues. Moomba was a member of a race of sentient plants with the ability to levitate. They are extremely powerful and immune to ballistic weapons up to and including cannon shells. A big game hunter named Frank heard from a dealer that big game from Africa was not a big hit at the moment but wooden statues were. While searching for the statues, Frank came upon Moomba assuming it too was a statue began to leave. When it came to life he attacked it, but could not stop Moomba from signalling all the wooden statues to begin the invasion.Within minutes, the whole world was taken over by Moomba and the wooden statues, but Katu who was a shaman from a tribe Frank had encountered created a potion that emitted fumes, forcing Moomba and its wooden statues to flee Earth. When Moomba left, it erased what had happened from the minds of everyone. However, Frank had recorded the encounter in his diary.[1]

Moomba later appeared on Monster Isle when Shadowcat and Magik appeared to look for a mutant girl named Bo. Moomba was among the monsters that attacked the three until Magik teleported herself, Shadowcat, and Bo to the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning.[2]


Moomba also possessed psychic powers, and was able to mindwipe the human race, removing all knowledge of his presence.
