Originally an entomologist named Roderick Rose, the Hellgrammite subjected himself to a mutagenic process that transformed him into a grasshopper-like humanoid insect possessing superhuman strength and leaping abilities, the power to secrete adhesives and weave transformative or imprisoning cocoons, and a durable exoskeleton. A number of his schemes revolved around transforming others into weaker, subordinate versions of himself, leading to clashes with Batman and the The Creeper,[1] Green Arrow, Black Canary and Superman.

During the Underworld Unleashed, he made a deal with Neron, trading his soul in return for increased physical powers and an improved ability to transform others into his larvae.

Powers

Abilities

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985-86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
