Sonny was a young mutant approached by the X-Men after his powers manifested, accidentally killing his family and a pet. However, he was abducted from his foster home by Ogre and the Vanisher. They used gas and a control helmet to keep him in check. He was experimented on at Mount Charteris until being deemed too dangerous and kept in cyrostasis. Later, Ogre used a tesseract portal to send him to Beta Lumaris Station Thirteen.

Sonny was awakened by the machinations of Fixer, who learned of "HS-1" from SHIELD documents. He opened the portal and revived Humus Sapien. Sonny used his powers to battle the Redeemers, SHIELD forces, and Ogre. Arabian Knight and others died as a result of his gathering energy across the world. Sonny heard the call of Gaea. He learned how many people he had killed and chose to go back through the portal, as in space he would not harm anyone. Ogre jumped in with him knowing his mistake.
Humus Sapien is physically and mentally linked to the Earth's 'bio-field'. He is able to drain electro-encephalographic energy from anywhere on the planet, including other lifeforms. He has been shown to use this energy to affect the growth of plants, cause the shifting of tectonic plates, repulse non-organic matter, and destroy unnatural materials by affecting their structure at the atomic level.
Although Humus Sapien makes his first cameo in Thunderbolts 33, and his first full apearance in Thunderbolts 54, the character was already made in 1973. In issue 3 of the 1970's Marvel Comics fan-magazine known as F.O.O.M., the winner of the 'create a villain contest' was announced. It was Humus Sapien and he was scedualed to appear, and even become a hero and a part of the new X-men team, in Giant Size X-men number 1. These plans however never materialized and Humus Sapien was forgotten until Marvel writers Kurt Busiek and Fabian Nicieza inned the long dept that Marvel had to the comic fan who made the character up, thus giving Humus Sapien his first comic appearance in Thunderbolts 54.
