The Tusk wiki last edited by Seraph_Darkholme on 03/25/14 07:14AM View full history

Brief History

Tusk is a member of The Dark Riders, a team of evil Inhumans that served Apocalypse by carrying out his "survival of the fittest," idealism by eliminating mutants that were deemed too weak.

Tusk has rarely been present in later incarnations of The Dark Riders, such as the one that abducted Wolverine and attempted to infuse adamantium to his skeleton once more. Unlike others in his group he escaped from Wolverine. He joined the team a second time when it was run by Stryfe. Following the team's last defeat, his current status is unknown.

He had the power of super strength and resistance. He also created duplicates (much like Madrox) and they sprouted out of the top of his hunched back. These creatures (called Underlings) shared Tusk's strength and invulnerability and could think individually but still had a psychic connection with the main body.

Television

X-Men: The Animated Series

Here he was established as a mutant and not an Inhuman. He appeared on the 4th season episode Secrets, No Longer Buried working as a mechanic in the town of Skull Mesa (curiously mentioning a family and showing a generally friendly demeanor), and coming to the aid of a de-powered Cyclops. In the series final episode he was also seen as a member of Magneto's army.
