With the ability to absorb the sound waves around him and send them back with concussive force by screaming, Mr. Sinister favored Ruckus and often kept him in reserve. Unfortunately, Ruckus' youth makes him arrogant, as seen when he and his comrade, Ramrod, robbed a convenience store and obliterated a group of police officers. The act did not go unpunished, and when returning to base, Ruckus was put in his place. While working with a renegade Madrox dupe, Ruckus was put in direct conflict with the mutant group X-Factor. Flying in a hovercraft, he went after Polaris, using the sound of a firecracker to amplify and literally rock her world. Polaris was eventually able to take him out, but he escaped with teammate Gorgeous George.
He later appeared along with the rest of the Nasty Boys on a mission to stop Malice who had inhabited Havok's body. Ruckus was the first to strike catching Malice off guard.Eventually, X-Factor joined the battle and Ruckus was taken out by Strong Guy. After the battle, Mr. Sinister grabbed his Nasty Boys and fled.
He was eventually hired by Mystique to assassinate Senator Robert Kelly, but failed when the X-Men showed up. His current whereabouts are unknown and even if he is still with Mr. Sinister, although he was one of the mutants to retain their powers after M-Day.
Ruckus was created by Peter David and Larry Stroman in 1992 and first appeared in X-Factor # 75.
