History: Dagampatay was originally a simple minded tramp. He spotted a child about to be hit by a car, and tried to save the kid, but his good intentions were misunderstood by witnesses, who assumed he had been trying to cause injury instead. These bystanders beat Dagampatay up as payment for his noble deed. The vagrant stumbled "home" to his sleeping spot, under a bridge, to nurse his bleeding wounds, where even the vermin he shared it with, the local rats, treated him better than his fellow humans. While there he was exposed to strange radiations from a meteorite he found while scavenging for food, and was mutated into a being who was part-man, part-rat. In his new form, with no love lost for humanity, he soon came into conflict with Captain Barbell.
