Bio:
Nothing is known about Ox's history before joining the Enforcers, although he was born in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. Ox is a burly strongman possessed of superhuman strength.

Ox eventually falls under the control of Mister Fear, who partners him with the criminal Eel as The Fellowship of Fear. Fear attempts to use his enthralled minions to destroy Daredevil, but all three are defeated.

Ox became fatally-afflicted with radiation poisoning during his criminal machinations. He breaks out of prison with a reclusive scientist named Dr. Karl Stragg, who used a mind-transfer device to "swap bodies" with the villain, craving control of Ox's strength. This "new" Ox dies in combat with Daredevil when he fell to his death.

Meanwhile, the original Ox sought to build a new life in his new body (that of the scientist). This hope for redemption proves short-lived, however. While acting as a test subject for radioactive isotopes, the scientist's body mutates into an unstable duplicate of Ox's original frame. Ox goes on a rampage, soon succumbing to the radiation's lethal effects. He explodes in battle with Daredevil.

Years later, a second Ox, (Ronald, twin brother to the original), is paired with the remaining Enforcers. Comments and actions taken by this Ox suggest he may be, in fact, one of the two versions of the original, somehow having survived his battles with Daredevil.

Ox has recently been seen working as a tough for various underworld figures, such as the current Mr. Fear, the Kingpin, and the Maggia. While collecting a gambling debt on behalf of a criminal called 'Fat Teddy', he is confronted by Spider-Man . The hero stops the mugging, but then experiences the delusion that Ox is the more powerful, stronger villain called Morlun. Spider-Man, already afflicted by illness and the belief he doomed to die, beats upon Ox until stopped by an enraged Daredevil. Ox is left in a pool of blood and Daredevil makes sure the man recieves medical attention.
