Mudbug was the son of a rural Alabama family who was one of the many thousands of new mutants activated upon the dispersion of the Phoenix Force by Hope Summers. Upon the manifestation of his powers, his family began calling him "Mudbug" and made him sleep in the doghouse.

Mudbug later popped up as a member of the Shadow Council's Masters of Evil in Bagalia.[2]
