Leech possesses the ability to drain away the abilities of any super-powered being in his vicinity.

Leech was born a mutant in the sewers under New York as a Morlock. After the Mutant Massacre, Leech joined X-Factor's group of mutant heroes in training, who later became the group known as the X-Terminators (The group consisted of Rusty, Skids, Whiz Kid, Boom Boom, Rictor, Artie, and Leech). Leech was then forced into the group of known as Gene Nation. Generation X then rescued him and he and Artie then joined the team. Leech and Artie lived in a tree house in the Danger Grotto until recently when the grotto mysteriously disappeared. For a time they lived in the attic, but they now live with Monet's father, Cartier St. Croix.

Notes and Personal Thoughts
At times, I fealt Artie and Leech were put on Gen X merely to get a few more laughs out of the readers. Oh well.
