Very little is known of mongoose's past, before he came to new york city. He was smuggled out of his country of origin by the villainous baron zemo and his masters of evil. He was apparently supposed to join the masters of evil on their assault on the avengers mansion. The masters' absorbing man and titania, in disguise, were supposed to pick him up at the airport, but they became involved in a battle with the hero spider-man. Mongoose, now that he was in america, decided to forget about the masters of evil and set out on his own.
the mongoose, who at one point was an actual mongoose, possesses various superhuman attributes after undergoing genetic engineering experiments conducted by the high evolutionary.
superhuman strength: the mongoose possesses superhuman strength enabling him to lift about 10 tons.
superhuman speed: the mongoose can run and move at speeds that are far superior to that of even the finest human athlete. He has demonstrated sufficient speed to be able to run up the side of skyscrapers.
superhuman stamina: the mongoose's musculature produces considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of a human being, even the finest human athlete for that matter. He can physically exert himself at peak capacity for up to 24 hours before the build up of fatigue toxins in his blood
