History

Hugh Dawkins was born with an uncommon metahuman ability, to transform into a therianthropic Tasmanian devil. His family had a tough time accepting him for who he was, an openly gay, mutant-born shape-shifter. It wasn't until Hugh's differences saved his father's life that he would find approval in his family's eyes.

A joking retelling of his origin implies that he was the son of a were-devil that belonged to a sect of Tasmanian devil-worshippers who, in exchange for the sale of his soul to a tasmanian devil, was granted a magical tasmanian devil amulet as he was injected with radioactive Tasmanian devil musk that was freely given by a race of alien Tasmanian devils.

The defender of his homeland, Dawkins worked alone until recruited into the Global Guardians, then later, the Justice League International, then another version of the Global Guardians. Tasmanian Devil encountered Hush, who was at the time posing as Bruce Wayne. He did not realize that it was Hush. Recently, Tasmanian Devil was brutally killed by Prometheus (who started to hunt down members of Global Guardians, successfully killing Gloss and Sandstorm) and then turned into a rug.

Tasmanian Devil was subsequently resurrected by Malavar when his remains were placed in a Lazarus Pit. The newly resurrected Tasmanian Devil has a new fur coat since he was skinned by Prometheus. The team made up of Congorilla, Mikaal Tomas, Animal Man, Rex the Wonder Dog, and Malavar held the fringe group of so called Freedom Fighter gorillas at bay while the Lazarus Pit was resurrecting Tasmanian Devil. He is currently in a relationship with Mikaal Thomas , the Justice League's current Starman. The Tasmanian Devil is a reserve Justice League now that he has been resurrected, and was seen during the battle with Eclipso. It is unknown what his status is of the Global Guardians.
