It all started when a container loaded with radioactive material is lost in an open field somewhere. Unaware of the danger, a lonely fireant  crawls over the container, going through an amazing transformation after being exposed to the unstable materials. The small fireant is granted with humanoid form and incredible inteligence.

From his origin story, it was clear that the character was some kind of gadgeteer after he builds alone a weird vehicle to drive around. The vehicle was built from an abandoned old beetle, with 6 wheels rolling from the end of robotic legs, looking like a giant bug.

Later in the same story, an anteater is wandering close to the same contaminated site when he is exposed to the dangerous materials. He goes through a transformation much like the one suffered by the fireant. The story went directly to the anteater hunting the fireant. The two met and had their first fight, and that was how simple the story was…
