Tusk is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. His name comes from the two large tusks that protrude out of his shoulders. He has superhuman strength and the ability to create smaller duplicates of himself that do his bidding.
Fictional character biography
Tusk is a member of The Dark Riders, a team of evil Inhumans that served Apocalypse by carrying out his "survival of the fittest" program of eliminating mutants that were deemed to be weak.[volume & issue needed]
He and the Dark Riders reappear against Magneto's Uncanny X-Men. The Riders are trying to kill mutant healers, but are ambushed by Magneto on Genosha. It is assumed that they are dead, as Magneto tied them to a bomb that leveled the entire island.
