Hugh Dawkins is a born metahuman with the ability to turn into a supernaturally large and intelligent Tasmanian Devil, in a fashion similar to a werewolf. While Hugh is a pacifist, his alter ego of the Tasmanian Devil is aggressive and bestial. His parents had a hard time with him until he saved his father's life. Hugh's mother has been noted to have been abusive, particularly to his father.

He worked as a superhero in Tasmania until he was contacted by Doctor Mist to join the Global Guardians. He fought alongside the team until their base was destroyed and they temporarily disbanded.

Dawkins helped to rebuild the Justice League Embassy which had been destroyed during an alien invasion. He then joined Justice League International. His affiliation with the Justice League caused his rejection by the Queen Bee, ruler of Bialya, who was reforming the Guardians. Her efforts seemed beneficial but were for her own selfish gain, as she was using brainwashing techniques to put the Global Guardians under her control. He and the League helped free the Global Guardians from their mind control and put a stop to the Queen Bee's evil schemes. Dawkins and the League helped with relief and recovery efforts. He then rejoined a team of Guardians to rescue those still endangered by the secret machinations of Harjavti, an associate of the Queen Bee. The entire group was endangered as those left behind had been implanted with subliminal orders to kill. Fortunately, nobody was actually harmed and the Global Guardians were reformed again.

He later assisted the Justice League and the Global Guardians on a number of occasions. During a battle with Phobia in New Zealand, where he confronted his fears of his mother, he saved the country and earned that nation's love and support. He assisted the Justice League until the death of Ice, when that particular branch of the League fell apart. He remained with the Global Guardians, and he joined the Ultramarine Corps as well shortly after the formation of that team.
