Frederick Jack Dukes was born on June 14, 1972 in Lubbock, Texas. Born a Mutant, Dukes latent superhuman powers manifested at fifteen years of age when he accidentally destroyed part of the mobile home he and his mother lived. After this display of power, he ran away from home and became a member of a circus sideshow. He went by the name of Blob during his stay with the circus.
Joining the BrotherhoodEdit
Magneto attempted to recruit the Blob for his Brotherhood of Mutants and he eventually accepted membership.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Blob's mutant powers related to the mass, strength, resilience and indestructibility of his obese body.
Superhuman Durability : Blob's body possessed a high degree of resistance to injury. The fat tissues that comprised the Blob's epidermis were able to absorb the impact of rifle bullets, cannonballs, bazooka, and even torpedoes. The larger of these projectiles recoiled from his body at one half the force of impact. The smaller one embed themselves in his layers of fat tissue, enabling him to eject them by merely flexing his muscles. The fat tissue of his epidermis was resilient enough to revert to its normal shape within second after deformation caused by impact. It was virtually impervious to physical injury. Blob's skin could not be punctured or lacerated by most known materials, frostbitten, or ravaged by any skin disease, due in part to the skin's greatest elasticity and toughness and in part to the highly accelerated rate at which his skin cells grew and replaced themselves. His skin was somewhat less resistant to burning. Blob also had more resistance against alcohol due to his greater mass, though he could still be intoxicated if he had a huge amount of alcohol.
Superhuman Strength : Blob possesses super strength, being able to lift up to around 70 tons.
