Bill & Don were science experiments of Ramon Lipshitz (Gomi's cousin) and his partner Tadishi Fujita. Their scientific knowledge was said to be on a par with that of Reed Richards or Doctor Doom. They worked for a local university and were based in a small shack under a lighthouse. There they began their experimentation of cybernetic organisms by surgically embedding two lobsters with strength enhancing implants. Gomi, as their unpaid lab assistant, cared for the two lobsters and named them. The 'normal' green lobster became Bill, while the 'mutant' blue lobster was named Don.
When the university withdrew their financial backing and threatened to audit Ramon & Tadishi's experiments, the two of them fled. Gomi was left to take care of himself, Don & Bill until the Fallen Angels discovered them.
Major Story Arcs
Don would often accompany Bill and Gomi. The three of them were rarely separated. On many occasions Gomi had to remind Don to be careful where he would walk. Since he was just a lobster, people would not see him underfoot, and Gomi worried that Don would be hurt despite his cybernetic implants. Don appeared to be more impetuous & angry in character than Bill, and often wandered further away from Gomi.
Together the three of them searched the streets of New York for Sunspot & Warlock and to invite them to join the Fallen Angels. In Sunspot's wake, they entered a local church where street thugs where attempting to steal the golden and holy items. The criminals laughed at Gomi, but were soon dispatched by Don & Bill. Later Sunspot observed how protective Don & Bill were of Gomi, and admired their loyalty when they used their strength to torment the Vanisher.
Don & Bill joined the other Angels on a quick intergalactic trip to a jungle planet. There the team recruited Moon Boy and Devil Dinosaur, who were taken back to the Beat Street Club in New York. When the team split up to search the city for food, Moon Boy & Devil Dinosaur also ventured out into the streets to help their new friends.
However, disaster struck soon after they left the safety of the Club. A horrendous crunch sounded out across the street as Devil Dinosaur accidentally stepped on top of Don, instantly crushing the blue lobster.
