Horace Lafeaugh aka Tusker once tried to audition for the Legion of Super-Heroes. His powers were to extend his unbreakable tusks to extreme lengths. Horace was rejected on the grounds that his powers were impractical.
Over time, Tusker's powers evolved so he no longer had just unbreakable tusks, but he now had an unbreakable skeleton and enhanced durability. He mutates into a large, gray-skinned, monstrous creature.
Tusker then joins the xenophobic superhero group called the Justice League of Earth. The team was made up of Earth-born Legion rejects obsessed with spreading lies about Superman's origin. They believe that Superman was human and that all aliens should be deported from the planet. The team consisted of leader: Earth Man, as well as Spider-Girl, Golden Boy, Storm Boy, and Radiation Roy.
The Legion defeated the team with the help of Superman, and they were sent to the prison planet: Takron-Galtos.
Tusker and Justice League of Earth attacked the United Planets Government Complex in Metropolis. The League was going to kill the President of Earth "for crimes against humanity" but Tusker and the team are electrocuted by Legionnaire Lightning Lad.
