Marc Devlin was a member of an elite counter terrorist squad called Team Omega that was formed by a man named Lars Dinkelbach aka Eagle. This group was created for a very secret war against terrorism and worldwide crime. Team Omega would raid a secret research base in the African Congo when they were attacked by some ferocious creature. Devlin and his teammates suffered near fatal wounds because the creature carried an artificial virus that prevented their wounds from healing. Team Omega was taken to a covert STORM base which was an acronym for Special Taskforce Omega Response Mandate and underwent a special procedure performed by Doctor Samuel Merrick. Devlin and his teammates went inside a secret experiment called the Gene Match Device that was capable of re-writing and re-combing their DNA with genetic abilities of animals that enhanced their abilities to superhuman levels. Devlin was given the code name Tyr and he possessed dinosaur DNA which granted him the ability to form a scaly hide and sprout numerous spikes from his body. Devlin and his teammates would become a special unit called the Gene Dogs and the entire team consisted of Tyr, Kestrel, Pacer, Panther and Howitzer. The Gene Dogs would be the premiere fighting force of STORM and continue their war with the terrorist organization known as MyS-TECH.
