Slag's body is made of solid lava, which makes him invulnerable and extremely strong. He can project lava blasts and control the shape of the surrounding ground, as long as it's connected to Earth.
Slag is of German origin. Nothing is said about their origin, but they worked together for a long time. They first appeared against the WildCATs, beside the Gnome, in his attempt to seize the Orb of Power Helspont intended to use to open a gate in his project: reunification. They were to clear the path for their employer, in the SDI facility, while the WildCATs and Youngblood were fighting each other. They got their ass kicked by Spartan, Maul and Warblade.
After improving their skills, they were hired by Soma, Tapestry's sidekick, to capture the WildCATs. They succeeded except for Zealot and Grifter. Apparently, they did their part and got paid. But Attica insisted that Grifter and Zealot should not be left unattended. That greed finally lost them, as they were confronted by the Huntsman, who bagged HARM and Attica alone, but was neutralized by Slag. Later, Soldier, Majestic and Savant, along with Grifter, got them when they located Zealot.
They later were the first target of the Savant's WildCATs II. HARM was shot dead by Condition Red, after Ladytron dropped on his shoulders and pulled out his helmet. The WildCATS attacked during his funeral, and Tao dropped the container, where HARM's molten armor was kept, on Slag, thus encasing him in a shell of steel, while Majestic knocked Attica.
They were freed from their virtual prison by Tao when he was eluding the WildCATs, after his schemes were exposed.
Slag has a grotesque, tall, big humanoid shape. His body is covered by a brown rock shell. His eyes are a glowing yellow and yellow fumes go out of his skull.
