Wall was a member of Randall Shire's small travelling carnival in Australia before Shire was possessed by the alien Undying known as Semijan and subsequently enslaved Wall and his brother Key with his mutant vocal power.
Wall was forced to serve as Shire's bodyguard until the mutant hero Cable stopped an assassination attempt on Shire by another Undying known as Aentaros and discredited Shire in the eyes of those he had enslaved, thus freeing them from his control. Wall and Key aided Cable in breaking into the Undying's stronghold, and fought the Undying, distracting them while Key reprogrammed the Undying's artificial intelligence program, causing them to be unable to possess anything except cockroaches for the rest of eternity.
It has yet to be determined whether Wall has retained his mutant powers post-Decimation.
Wall is a low-level mutant whose body is denser than adamantium, and is resistant to injury. Wall also possesses enhanced strength.

Watoomb was a mage of such extraordinary magical power and skill that he dealt with other incredibly powerful mystic entities. Millennia ago, Watoomb engaged in the Wager of the Octessence. The worshippers of Watoomb built the Temple of Watoomb in his honor, in what would eventually become northern Australia, and there was placed the totem which contained Watoomb's power: the Waterfall of Watoomb.
Watoomb transcribed part of his knowledge onto scrolls.
Watoomb empowered the Wand of Watoomb, and gave it several magical capabilities.
In modern times, Watoomb chose a disciple to pass his Wand to, so that he could retire from mystic affairs for a while. He would chose between apprentices Doctor Strange and Cyrus Black, whomever won in a mystical fight. Watoomb gave one half of his Sceptre, the Wand of Watoomb, to each of the sorcerers, and Strange won the fight.
Watoomb was one of many powerful mystic beings involved in the War of Seven Spheres, a cyclic conflict between magical entities which endures for 5000 years. When Doctor Strange invoked him, Watoomb wanted to enlist Strange as a weapon in the War of the Seven Spheres, but Strange pronounced the Enchantment of Empancipation, refusing to serve any being in the war.
Nicolette Giroux found the lost Temple of Watoomb and touched the Waterfall of Watoomb, becoming his Exemplar, Tempest.
