History: 'Big Bill' Buckford has been mentally unstable since the age of 6 when it is reported that he bit the head off his pet dog. His personality has not mellowed much since then. He spent the next few years in and out of various criminal and mental institutions; then at the age of eighteen, he nearly murdered his entire family during a trip to the zoo; supposedly one of them quipped that this was just the place for Bill to be. When the police arrived, Bill threw an elephant at them.

He was eventually sedated and brought to court where he was found unfit to stand trial and sent to a medium security mental facility. One day he told his nurse he was going for a walk and he has not returned since. He was recruited to the supervillain team the Crushers, and has stayed there ever since.
