Marcus Gaius was an auger, or priest, in ancient Rome during Caligula's reign. Initially refusing to aid in his friend Cassius Chaerea's campaign to kill the mad emperor, Marcus changed his mind when Caligula forcibly took his wife Valeria to be his concubine. Distraught, Marcus prayed for Jupiter to aid Cassius Chaerea and return his wife to him. During these prayers he was approached by Baalzebub and made a deal with the demon - in exchange for helping his friend's cause and the return of his wife, he would be forever his. Baalzebub did as he promised, but Valeria was angered by her husband's apparent inaction and stabbed him upon their reunion. As Marcus lay dying, Baalzebub once again appeared and took his soul per their deal, giving him the name he would use from then on: Buzz.
Buzz was created by writer Peter David and artist Gary Frank.
