A young biochemist named Theodore Sallis was working in the Everglades as part of Dr. Wilma Calvin's Project: Gladiator to recreate the Super-Soldier Serum which created Captain America. But AiM made a move to attack the research group, with Sallis forced to inject himself while escaping. However, Sallis crashes into the swamp where the combination of untested serum and the supernatural transformed him into a monstrous creature made of plant matter creature with no memory of his humanity and acting solely on instinct before regaining a bit of his former self.
