Little is known about Hubie Edge's past before Decimation
. Hubie Edge is a 250 pounds of corn fed muscle from Alabama
. He is a mutant who has the ability of therianthropy and enables him to transform into an insect humanoid most likely a cockroach. He then named himself Roach. When Scarlet Witch
depowered the majority of the mutant population, Hubie was stuck in his insect form and lost his other abilities including the ability to turn back to his human form. A serial killer named Ghoul
who attacks depowered mutants, especially those without any team affiliations, killed Hubie leaving a note that says "Not Enough Died". His case was then reported to Sally Floyd
after she was given a photo of his dead body.
The full potential of Hubie have not been revealed. He is a mutant who can shape shift into an insect form most likely cockroach. The proven ability while in this form is flight, though, some of his abilities remain unrevealed. During Decimation, his powers were all lost.
