The Bug began his life as Archy Mehitabel, a computer-expert and hobby-entomologist. When a coachroach ran across his keyboard, his attempt to squash the insect hit a combination of keys that caused the computer to explode--and Archy to be transformed into a giant roach! He takes revenge against both computers and society by becoming a 1337 hacker, using his skills to aid the Axis of Antagonists.
