Arthur Malin was born in Dallas, Texas, to a family of thieves. Not satisfied with petty theft, he left for New York to join a biker gang for the chaos and destruction. He found and joined the Thrashers, a large biker gang that was notorious for its maliciousness. After joining up, he became friends with Buster Streeton (later known as Spine, who was Duke Thompson's second-in-command. They shared a mutual hatred of their leader and got on very well.
When Thompson wanted a mutant named Sky Pterror to join both Arthur and Buster opposed it due to not trusting him. After Sky Pterror killed Thompson Arthur & Buster joined the new Dino-gang simply because they hated the fact that the Old Thrashers were created because of their love of the old leader. Arthur joined in on the attack on Oscorp and stole the weapons but were imprisoned when the X-Men and Spider-Man teamed up to stop them. They managed to escape when the Offbeats busted out of prison.
A new form
When they arrived at their old base Sky Pterror revealed that he had smuggled some experimental drugs from Oscorp into their base and wanted them to drink it. After drinking it Arthur transformed into an amalgamation of Acrocanthosaurus (although the others confused him for an Allosaurus, hence the name Al) and man. he grew scales, obtained super strength a tail and his head mutated into that of a Acrocanthosaurus, needless to say, Arthur was horrified and blamed Sky Pterror for his new state, making him hate his leader even more.
Due to Sky Pterror killing Duke Thompson the Old Thrashers launched a full scale gang war against the Dino-Gang and in a sudden hit and run attack a bomb was thrown at the feet of a small group of bikers. Al was one of those who was caught in the blast. Spine grew bitter and resentful and attacked Sky Pterror.
