in which he was helping to distribute a poison into city waters. Cable
and the New Mutants
foiled these plans.
mainly used Sumo as the bulk in their operations. He didn't attend every outing by the group, but during his missions he would be as formidable as the Blob
(but far quieter). His appearances, however, were short-lived. Cable shot him through the head when the MLF tried to steal a hieroglyph from an Egyptian prison.
