Mzee was born in a village in Ethiopia where he lived with his family until the day they were killed by a group Magneto's henchman while he hid in an oil drum. Some time later, he had a mystic artifact known as the "Crooked Emerald" placed in his heart, which contained the psyche of a dead African god whose name and power he now shares.

Possessing a hatred of all mutants, he became a member of Red Skull's criminal organization, The S-Men, where he helped procure the body of the recently-deceased Professor X so his leader could remove his brain and gain use of his telepathic abilities. He was later part of the Skull's attack on New York, where he proved a suitable match for Thor until he was knocked unconscious by the thunder god's hammer.
