Gar with his parents before his mutation.

Once a normal boy, Garfield fell ill and was hospitalized in a field hospital in the Congo. The scientist known as the Chief gave him an antidote, giving him the power to "unzip" his DNA and rearrange it allowing him to become a tiger. He later joined him and other patients of the Chief at the Doom Manor.[2]


Gar soon after befriended a young girl, Rachel Roth, and introduced her to his adoptive family.[2]
