    Major Story Arcs

    With the Nasty Boys and Mister Sinister

    He became a member of the mutant mercenary group known as the Nasty Boys as they where hired by Mister Sinister. His only missions were against the government sponsored X-Factor team. His arms are longer than normal because he forgot their normal length after getting drunk with the other Nasty Boys. He can do many things with his tar-like body, he once tried to choke Strong Guy by entering his lungs. He was one of the mutants to retain their powers after M-Day.

    Return and Druglab

    Many months later, Gorgeous George was seen again when he and fellow teammates Haribag and Slab where attacked by X-Man Psylocke, whom crashed their Mutant-groth-hormone drug-lab. George was soon defeated by Psylocke and presumably taken in by authorities.

    Some time later, the Nasty Boys were killed by the Upstarts, but Gorgeous George was resurrected on Krakoa. He made trouble when he started a fight with Black Tom.

    Powers & Abilities

    Gorgeous George has a body that is extremely stretchy in it's elasticity as he can stretch his tar like body to unbelievable levels and can also turn his entire body into a puddle. Through his powers of elasticity he is very hard to injure, as he can reconstitute parts of his body and can bend to dodge attacks, also he can turn himself extremely slippery so this helps him avoid capture and harm even further.
