Fictional team biography

The Savage Land Mutates were originally Swamp Men, human inhabitants of the Savage Land that were genetically altered by the mutant Magneto to serve as his troops. They clashed with the X-Men and Ka-Zar on different occasions. On one occasion, they turned Spider-Man into the Man-Spider and Angel into a bird monster. They have also encountered the Avengers. Although the group is fairly large, most appearances of the group contain only about half of the group's members, usually under leadership of Sauron, Brainchild, or Zaladane. The entire group has never appeared together at one time.


The following have been depicted as leaders of the Savage Land Mutates:
*Magneto - Creator and First Leader
*Zaladane - Prophetess for Garokk. Rarely leads the group.
*Sauron - Life-force draining human who transforms into a mind controlling, savage pterosaur-like creature if he feeds on mutant energy.
*Brainchild - A mutate with an enlarged cranium with psychic powers. Tends to most often be second in command, after Sauron, and in his absences (when taken by Weapon X or dominated by his Karl Lykos personality), Brainchild actually leads the group.


The following are actual members. Magneto's original creations were Amphibius, Barbarus, Equilibrius, Gaza, Piper, Lorelei, and Lupo. The others appeared after he abandoned the depowered mutates, who would later regain their abilities. The members usually appear a group with five or six of the listed members, and have never appeared as one large group. "" introduced Lupa and Leash.

* Amphibius - A frog-like mutate who can leap great distances, breathe underwater, and psionically control aquatic life.
* Barbarus - A four-armed mutate with physical strength, endurance, and injury resistant powers. Escaped The Raft holding facility in the breakout of Sauron.
* Equilibrius - A mutate who can induce sensations of vertigo in anyone who looks him in the eyes.
* Gaza - A mutate with slightly enhanced strength, endurance, and resilience. He is blind, but makes up for it with an additional power, radar senses.
* Leash - A mutate who can psychically imprison another being's astral essence, rendering them catatonic or under her mental control.
* Lorelei (Lani Ubana) - A mutate who is able to place men in a hypnotic trance using her hypersonic vocal emissions. She was also briefly a member of the first Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
* Lupo - A mutant who has strength, speed, endurance, reflexes as well as hyper keen senses, sharp claws, and can psionically command canine creatures. In later appearances he gained a lupine-humanoid appearance. At one point Lupo had an ursine appearance, looking like a blue bear.
* Lupa - A mutate with enhanced strength, speed, endurance, reflexes, night vision, and animal senses. She controls a small army of dire wolves. She can also emit pheromones that allow her to control bestial creatures. It is unknown whether she is related to Lupo.
* Piper - A mutate who can psionically control large groups of animals using his flute as a focus for his power.
* Vertigo- A mutate that can emit waves that affect equilibrium. She left the Savage Land to join Mister Sinister's Marauders, but later returned under mysterious circumstances (see profile for details).
* Whiteout - A mutate who can emit brilliant flashes of psionic "light" that can blind anyone she chooses.
* Worm - A mutate who secretes mucus that allows him to override other living beings' motor and autonomic nervous functions after coating them with it. He also has a worm-like lower body and enlarged hands with suction-cups on them.
