Puck is invincible (to the point of being bullet proof) as well as having enhanced strength, being able to lift in the 800 pound to 2 ton range.
Eugene Milton Judd was a soldier of fortune in the early 1900s when he attempted to steal the mystical sword, The Black Blade of Baghdad. In attempting to steal the sword, Judd accidentally released the evil being, Raazer, who was trapped within. In order to contain the evil he had released, Judd had to sacrifice part of his life essence. The light from his life force was able to trap and contain the spirit of Raazer within his own body. This process reduced him to a height of 3' 6", however rendering him basically immortal. Keeping the evil of Raazer trapped in his body took constant constant effort, and caused him to be in constant pain.
For some time Judd carried on his lifestyle as a soldier of fortune, spy. During that time, Judd had many adventures, some of which he shared with some famous marvel heroes. Judd became versed in many middle eastern religions and practices. At some point in the not too distant future, Judd became a member of the mercenary group called the Outcasts. It was around that time that Judd was put in jail, presumably for killing someone. While recruiting member for for Alpha Flight, and Department H, James MacDonald Hudson arranged for Judd to be taken out of prison, under the condition he would never kill again. Eugene joined the Beta Flight training team, and assumed the code name Puck.
When the Canadian cut the funding to Alpha Flight, Puck had been on the verge of being promoted to the ranks of Alpha Flight. It was this fact that had brought Heather Hudson to summon him to join Alpha Flight in battle again the Great Beast, Tundra. Though Judd did not make it to the battle on time, he did end up joining the ranks of Alpha Flight, in their then unofficial status.
After the apparent death of James MacDonald Hudson, Puck was instrumental in guiding Hudson's widow Heather, in over the role of Alpha Flight's leader. It was this close association with Heather that lead to Judd falling in love with her. These emotions brought out a feeling on insecurity in Puck, that he was not used to dealing with. In time Judd succumbed to the combination of his physical pain, and the emotional pain of unrequited love. The spirit of Raazer was set free, and battle Alpha Flight. The result of having Raazer leave his body, was the restoration of Puck's original height and accurate age or approximately 70 years old. The only way Alpha Flight was able to defeat ancient evil, was for Judd to make the same sacrifice he had made so many years ago. Once more Puck absorbed the evil spirit into his body, become young, and dwarfed once more.
When Judd was accidentally flung into the Firefountain of Svartalfheim and Raazer was released once more. He returned to old age, but was transported to Tibet. Eventually, while looking for adventure, he encountered a monk who created a dimensional link to Liveworld where Alpha Flight was fighting the Dreamqueen. He brought them back to earth and returned the Dreamqueen to her own dimension, but becoming her prisoner. He eventually learned to manipulate the world around him after he was left by the Dreamqueen who had grown bored of torturing him. He made himself younger and healed all his wounds. When Alpha Flight was once again in Liveworld he returned with them to earth. He soon became ill as the effects of Liveworld wore off, and the damage done by the Dreamqueen's torture, and his old age returned.
While in hospital, Judd was kidnapped by the Master who genetically altered him attempting to create a mate for former Alpha Flight member, Marrina. Several members of Alpha Flight found Judd extremely deformed, restored to a twisted version of his dwarf stat. Walter Langkowski was able to use the Master's equipment to reverse the damage. He was able to accomplish this with an enzyme the Master had extracted from the remains of Scramble, which had old data imprinted with Judd's physiology; this data was from his diminutive state. The result compacted his mutated body into his dwarfed shape, Compacting his cells empowering Puck with a high degree of invincibility, coupled with increased strength. Judd remained a member of Alpha Flight until Department H decided to disband the team in light of the attention from the Super Heroes Registration Act.
Some time later Department H, under altered management reformed Alpha Flight. Judd was forced into joining the new team for one mission. When he attempted to leave the team, Puck was brainwashed and had his memories selectively erased. Every time Puck would uncover more of Department H's plots, they would take steps to make him forget what he had learned. Eventually this was all put to an end when James MacDonald Hudson lead many of the original team members to topple the nefarious Department H heads.
Puck has remained a member of Alpha Flight, who were now much more in control of their own fates and missions. Most recently Puck has been shown to have been captured by the alien Plodex race. A new Alpha Flight strike force has been formed by Sasquatch to rescue Puck and the other original Alpha Flight members. One of the members of the Alpha Flight strike force is a young woman named Zuzha Yu, who is apparently Puck's daughter. It is not yet known if either of them are aware of this fact. Zuzha has adopted the code name of Puck.
