The Hippo was originally an ordinary hippopotamus named Mrs. Fluffy Lumpkins, even though he was a male. He was visited by the High Evolutionary, who turned him into a humanoid hippo, one of his New Men.
During his life of crime, he encountered Venom in his Spider-Man alias and had his leg eaten by him. He later joined up with the Redeemer and other villains who had their limbs eaten by "Spider-Man" in an attempt to capture and redeem "Spider-Man." Once outfitted with mechanical appendages, Hippo and the other villains fought "Spider-Man." Unfortunately, Hippo and Eleven ended up eaten by "Spider-Man" while the other villains were hospitalized.
Origin of the Species
Hippo is next seen as a member of White Rabbit's group The Menagerie as they were leaving the scene of a heist they pulled off involving easter eggs. They were eventually stopped by Spider-Man. Hippo and the rest of the Menagerie later reunite to commit a diamond heist, but they are once again defeated by Spider-Man.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
It appears he posses super strength and, since hippopotamuses have very thick hides, he is probably very durable.
Hippo is also shown to be very adept in operating underwater.
