    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Litterbug was a young man who worked as a mechanic in the Army until his powers manifested soon after joining, giving him a cockroach-like apperance. He joined up with the Chicago branch of the Morlocks under the leadership of Postman. Litterbug has a deep understanding of the Sentinels, and he reveals to Angel Dust that he used to work on them in the Army. He, however, seems to have rejected the American government, tearing up a Buy American cigarette poster, and asking Postman to help him burn off his Army tattoo on his right shoulder.  


    Litterbug is a Morlock and a Marvel comics character. The Morlocks are underground group of mutants who are disaffected and feel shunned by society. Their name is derived from the H. G. Wells novel The Time Machine, which also features a group of beings who live underground. Litterbug is from the Chicago Morlock community and was created by Geoff Johns, Shawn Martinbrough and Gregory Wright. Litterbug first appears in Morlocks #1 released in 2002.
