Kyr (Ralphie Hutchins)
Real Name: Ralphie Hutchins
Search for 'Kyr (Ralphie Hutchins)' on Amazon

Kyr was able to turn on the pain receptor's in his enemies bodies using a beam he shot from his eyes. Kyr appeared to have vast psychic potential.

Kyr was really a man named Ralphie Hutchins, a student attending the medical college of Los Angeles, when his best friend, Daniel "Zapper" Ridge gave him a blood sample to analyze. Zapper was the boyfriend of She-Hulk, and the blood sample he gave to Hutchins was that of She-Hulk, this was unknown to Hutchins at the time.

After he discovered that the blood was taken from the woman who transformed into She-Hulk, Hutchins confronted Zapper with this knowledge. It was revealed also, that Hutchins had given the blood sample to a man known only as Doc. Doc wanted She-Hulk brought into, claiming he was fascinated by her recuperative powers, but really wanted to clone an army of superhumans from her.

She-Hulk was brought in, and managed to escape. During her escape, a sample of her blood was injected into Hutchins, mutating him for the first time into Brute. During a battle with She-Hulk, Brute was literally torn to pieces.

Hutchins then morphed into the Seeker, and Doc used him to gain control of the criminal underground in Los Angeles. He also set up a battle between Seeker and She-Hulk to demonstrate his power. During the battle, the Seeker absorbed too much electricity, and not being able to control it, was buried in an explosion.

Surviving, Hutchins morphed from the Seeker into Raidus and was once again sent by Doc to kill She-Hulk. Nearly being defeated by She-Hulk, Radius ran from the battle.

Hutchins once again morphed, this time from Radius into a being called Torque. Yet again, Torque was sent to kill She-Hulk. She-Hulk, unwittingly increased Torque's power, and unable to control his increased power levels, Torque exploded.

From there, Hutchins morphed from Torque into Kyr. Kyr hid with Doc's mutates, a series of failed experiments. In yet another clash with She-Hulk, an inhibitor was ripped off of Hutchins which allowed Doc to control him.

Hutchins turned against Doc, transforming back through his previous identities. As Torque, he was killed by Doc who was using a helment that amplified his brainwaves and allowed him to fire a single mental blast at him.

In death, Ralphie mutated once more, this time into an unnamed entity capable of existing on a mental plane. From there, his consciousness invaded Doc's mutates, giving them a sense of purpose. He was also able to increase the determination and courage of all those around at the time to come together to face Doc. They did and were able to defeat Doc.

Hutchins, and/or his last mutation into the unnamed entity, have not been seen since.
