    The Nasty Boys

    Slab was Mr. Sinister's recruit for his team Nasty Boys, and was one of the first of the team to attack their arch nemesis X-Factor. Slab climbed to the top of the Washington Monument and called Strong Guy out to fight him, and they battled. When he shrunk his size to avoid Strong Guy's punch leading to Strong Guy to destroy the monument.

    Slab was captured along with his teammate Hairbag and taken to a holding cell by X-Factor. While he waited for his lawyer to negotiate bail, Slab and Hairbag were broken out of prison by the Mutant Liberation Front (of which Slab's sister Thumbelina was a member) and returned to the Nasty Boys shortly afterwards.

    Versus Havok and Polaris

    Slab and the Nasty Boys reappear years later with Mr Sinister after Malice had possessed Havok in Hawaii. Mr. Sinister ordered his Nasty Boys to do whatever they pleased with Malice but to have Havok remain intact. Mr. Sinister appeared to have destroyed Malice when she attempted to possess Polaris. Slab and the rest of the Nasty Boys teleported away with Mr. Sinister after he had reassured Alex Summers that they would meet again one day.
