Born into a Zulu tribe in South Africa, the man born Mbulaze discovered he could out run and out jump the antelope. Joining the Global Guardians he took the name Impala. He was one
of the brainwashed Guardians during the Queen Bee occupation Of Bialya. He also loses his powers against Fain Y'onia. They are later restored once Fain is destroyed.
His picture hangs up on Roulette's wall of fallen heroes. Her club, The House, pits drugged heroes against each other to the death.
