Tusker was once an aspiring member of the Legion of Super-Heroes with the ability to extend his indestructible tusks great distances but was rejected by the team on the grounds his power was impractical.
Enraged at this Tusker became a solo criminal and went on a rampage years later - being defeated by the Legion of Subsitute-Heroes.
After this defeat Tusker would move on to join the xenophobic super-villain group known as the Justice League of Earth and began his crusade to discredit Superman and the Legion by enforcing a lie that Superman was human and all aliens had to be forcibly removed from Earth.
