Moon Boy is a mutant who possesses a higher level of intelligence than those of other members of the Small-Folk. He is not a genius by normal human standards.
Moon Boy has great agility, comparable to that of Earth apes. His entire body, with the exception of his face, is covered with fur.
Moon-Boy was born into a tribe of intelligent, fur-covered, ape-like humanoids known as the "Small-Folk". The Small-Folk made their home in the "Valley of Flame", a region of numerous active volcanoes, on an extra-dimensional primeval world. Moon-Boy's connection with Devil Dinosaur began as a young boy when he came across a female dinosaur being attacked by a rival tribe known as the "Killer-Folk". The female was killed, as well as two of her three young. The third did not die however, but was transformed when the Killer-Folk attempted to burn him to death with their torches. The fire permanently scorched the young dinosaur's skin bright red. Moon-Boy cared for the orphaned creature after its ordeal and named it "Devil".
Ostracized from his tribe because of his association with Devil, Moon-Boy and his red companion became wanderers. Devil and Moon-Boy's wanderings eventually took them to distant times and worlds. After several trips to the modern era of Earth-616 via magic, time travel, and teleportation by mutants, the pair eventually settled in the Savage Land of Earth-616.
Later, Moon-Boy became separated from Devil when he was removed from the Savage Land and taken to New York City by the Heroes for Hire mercenary team who were hired by S.H.I.E.L.D. scientists to retrieve the "Homo habilis" so that they might study his DNA. Moon-Boy has since been seen back in the Savage Land with Devil Dinosaur.
After Devil Dinosaur and Moon-Boy returned to their own Earth, Moon-Boy was killed by Killer-Folk. However, Moon Girl (Lunella Lafayette) traveled back in time to the moments before his death and gave Devil Dinosaur the ability to save him.
