Bio: Doctor Miles Blackgar's wife gave birth to a mutant daughter, Marlene, whose gaze immediately turned her to stone. ver the next 20 or so years, on his island off the Monterey Coast, Blackgar conducted numerous monstrous human experiments, trying to find a way to rid Merlene of her powers.
Miles Blackgar somehow learned of the existence of the Darkhold; he then bought Baron Russoff's castle from Jack Russell's step-father and had it shipped stone by stone from Transia and reassembled on Blackgar's Island.
Blackgar captured Jack Russell to use as one of his subjects before he realized that Jack was a werewolf. Jack then fought with Blackgar in his lupine form and threw him out of a window, crippling him.
Blackgar, now wheelchair bound, Marlene and Strug pursued Jack to his home in Los Angeles in order to recover the copy of the Darkhold recovered by the young man. During the battle, Blackgar and his daughter looked into a mirror as Marlene was using her power and they were both turned to stone. The two statues were then exhibited at the Santa Monica Art Museum where they still presumably reside.
