After several decades spent trying to reproduce the uncanny abilities of octopods to regrow limbs, Dr. Tendro knew nothing but failure. This lack of success drove Tendro to obsession. After several days of study without a moment's rest, he feel asleep at the wheel of his car and suffered a horrific collision.

Days later, Tendro awoke to find that he had lost both arms due to the crash. This fate only honed the Doctor's focus. He dove even further into his work, using his awkward prosthetic limbs to their absolute limit. As he reached the brink of madness, he finally made a breakthrough. He was able to replicate limb regrowth in lab rats.

It was then that Eugene Tendro realized that by completing this task, he had sealed his own replacement on the project. With successful cases for his comrades to study, his importance was severely diminished. In a demented fit, Tendro decided that if he became the test subject, no one could keep him from researching his own reaction. He managed to inject himself with the materials he had been testing, and was changed forever.

Now a wretched amalgam of octopus and man, "Octopod" carries out twisted experiments and feels free to steal anything he may require for them... including human test subjects.

With all the benefits of a human-sized octopus and the intellect of a mad genius, Octopod is one of the most disturbing and dangerous criminals in Gemini City.

Regularly teams up with Dirtnap and Tritops and considers Spinner one of his greatest foes.
