Sidney Crumb (Earth-616) of Captain Britain Vol 2 4 0001

Sid Crumb was a poor boy in his early life which he was beaten on by bullies and had to deal with a drunk father at home. In his later years, he was married and spent most of his time drinking, at one point his wife Mavis had left him. Then one day he heard a strange noise which lead him to the Fury defeated by Captain Britain which it had sent a dart attack accurately killing one of his neighbors to regenerate. As he ran, it sent a dart attack at him only hitting him in the arm in which the narrator says "such good fortune could never be Sid's", the dart was laced with a poison that slowly mutated him.[1]

He was slightly aware of the transformation thinking he was sick but wasn't completely. Later, he was in the rain as the mutation slowly took over. He then went over to some kids cutting school in hopes of finding help, but he had a flashback about the bullies and blindly dissolved them. As he continued, the mutation caused him to grow while his body seemed to already be dead. As he moved onward, the mutation caused his fingers to change: one became a tentacle, two stayed the same, one was a big mound of rotting flesh, and one was a normal human arm. While he changed, he lost his clothes and his mouth.

Soon, he had a flashback about his drunken father and Mavis thinking "You've could've stayed!" while he decided to "show her". He went to a pharmacy to get tablets, but then realized his mouth was gone and he thought loudly "WHERE"S MY MOUTH?!" While he did this, he picked up two people dissolving them to look for his mouth, and Captain Britain came and fought him. While Sid recognized him, he flashed back to the Fury that had caused the accident and hit Captain Britain thinking nobody cared for him. As Captain Britain hit him back, it started to hurt him until he screamed in his mind "PLEASE STOP HURTING ME!!" and Captain Britain felt it as he slowly dissolved away.[2]
