CESSPOOL was the Chief Executive Officer of a huge multi-national corporation with vast holdings in oil refineries, chemical plants, and mills. In an effort to placate environmental groups that were constantly assailing him about the toxic wastes spewing from his operations, he took them on a tour through one of his chemical plants to prove his operations were environmentally sound. While demonstrating the efficiency of a toxic waste containment area outside the plant, the scaffolding collapsed and he fell into the sludge below. The accident left him horribly disfigured.
"More ruthless and despicable than before, Cesspool is convinced that environmentalists were responsible for his accident and is determined to make the world as ugly and nasty as he is. Armed with an acid assisting chain saw, he's taken his knowledge of high-level dirty dealings and corporate subterfuge straight to the organization that will make the best use of him—COBRA!"
