Origin: Japheth, or Maggott, was born a sickly child in South Africa. Starving, he left his family in hopes of lightening their own burdens with his death. He was found by Magneto, who used his powers to release the two slugs living within Maggott. Though he initially rejected Magneto’s offer to join him, he later sought out Magneto when the pain of his mutation began to increase. It was on this search that he meet the X-men, who were being held captive by Magneto at the time.
His Deal: Maggott was one of the strangest X-men. His powers and way of speaking stood out on the already bizarre team.
