Fictional character biography

Very little is known about Gorgeous George, but it is known that he was a member of the Nasty Boys, a group of young mutants whose first and only missions were against the government sponsored X-Factor.[volume & issue needed] The Nasty Boys were lackeys of the super-villain Mister Sinister. The goal of the group was to gain influence and power in the legislative areas of Washington D.C..

Gorgeous George is Australian. He is able to do many things with his tar-like body, and he once attempted to choke Strong Guy by entering his lungs.[volume & issue needed] It is unknown if Gorgeous George retained his mutant powers after M-Day.

Powers

George has an elastic, tar-like body that can stretch and puddle. His power makes him exceptionally resistant to injury, as he survived Strong Guy breaking through his hardened form, and was also able to reconfigure himself after being blown apart by Havok.
