A member of a heretofore unknown sentient race that dwells in extremely deep craters and caverns on Earth’s moon, the creature UNTIL xenobiologist Dr Clarence Chase dubbed Gl0b (Gelatinous Lifeform Zero Beta) was discovered while running amok in UNTIL lunar base code-named Grizwald.

The creature, whose species rarely left their cavernous lairs, was apparently attracted to the surface as it had exhausted its subterranean food supply. Coming upon the UNTIL lunar base, it entered the facility and began eating whatever it could find. Although not malicious, the creature was responsible for extensive damage to Moonbase Grizwald until personnel lead by Chase captured it and shipped it back to Earth.

Returning to Earth with the creature, Chase began the arduous process of attempting to communicate with the unfamiliar lifeform. He soon realized that the creature now commonly referred to Gl0b was highly intelligent rather than a mindless eating machine his superiors initially believed it to be. What he did not know, however, was that Gl0b had, in fact, been studying Chase as well as the other scientists who would constantly poke, prod and probe it.

What Gl0b was particularly fascinated by was the portable TV that Chase and UNTIL linguist Dr Beatrice D’Angelo would watch on their down time in the lab.  The tiny screen opened up an entire world for Gl0b: thought it, he (as he now thought of himself) mastered the English language and learned the fundamental of human inter-personal interaction. However, since the two scientists watched nothing but cartoons and black-and-white comedies from the 30s and 40s, his understanding was quite incomplete.

Under unknown circumstances, Gl0b escaped UNTIL Headquarters and made his way to Westside. The sewers beneath this old part of Millennium City were perfect for Gl0b, who, by day would explore his new surroundings and by night would terrorize the local street gangs just like one of the “super-heroes” he had seen on TV. UNTIL specialists in metahuman psychology hypothesize that on one such occasion, Gl0b learned of the Squadron Supreme and most likely contacted the leader, code-named the Shroud (UNTIL Superhuman Registry No.: 425252), who inducted him into that group and with whom he has a strange relationship.

Inspired by the cartoon shenanigans he had learned to love and the real-life costumed metahumans he was now surrounded by, he shifted into his own set of tights and has become an active member of said group ever since.

Addendum: The subject was apparently killed in action during the conflict the Squadron Supreme refers to as Independence Day. However, due to the subject’s complete control over his molecular structure, it is theorized that he may one day reformulate himself.
