Real Name: Frank Hoag
Search for 'Sludge' on Amazon

Sludge has a tremendous regenerative ability, healing most wounds in seconds, and able to regrow large areas of body tissue. Submersion in water speeded up this ability. He does not require air and is immune to most chemical toxins.

The slime his body constantly exudes is corrosive and mutagenic to human flesh.

Sludge's mental processes have been affected by his transformation; he has a great deal of difficulty thinking or speaking coherently.

Frank Hoag was a corrupt NYPD detective who finally grew a spine when he was asked by his mob bosses to kill a fellow dirty cop. When he refused, his own murder was ordered; he was felled by a hail of bullets as well as a bomb. The explosion covered him with chemicals, which combined with the sewage from where the mobsters dumped his body. The chemicals had regenerative properties and tried to heal Hoag, but combined the sewer substances with his body, transforming him into a huge mass of living slime with a raging anger against criminals.
