Gorgeous George was a member of the Nasty Boys, a group of young mutants whose first and only missions were against the government sponsored X-Factor. His arms are longer than normal because he forgot their normal length after getting drunk with the other Nasty Boys. He is able to do many things with his tar-like body, and he once attempted to choke Strong Guy by entering his lungs.
Gorgeous George played a prominent role in the X-Men animated series. He is shown as a member of Mister Sinister's Nasty Boys. He also appeared in X-Men Adventures, a comic which was based on the animated series.
