Powers and Abilities

Digger had huge clawed hands and highly-developed forearms. He can dig through soil, or slash thick wooden beams with a slash of his hands. His claws, however, proved unable to affect Rom.


The Outcasts are disfigured or otherwise hideous people who fled the surface world to disappear in the extensive network of underground caves under Marvel Earth. They eventually found the subterranean realm of the Mole Man, who had underwent a very similar trial, and gradually formed the Outcasts. The Mole Man gave the Outcasts superhuman powers, and occasionally relied on them as a group of super-operatives.

The Outcasts where first seen when the Mole-Man and Kala crossed swords and champions during the Winter Olympic Games in a contest to find the source of eternal youth ; the tangled with Spider-Man, the Hulk and some Olympic champions who had been outfitted with high-tech gear.

They later fought against an invasion of Dire Wraiths in parts of Subterranea under Virginia – then against Rom and Starshine, whom they briefly mistook for Wraiths while the Space Knights thought they were responsible for disappearances in the surface world.

Years later, during the events of the Subterranean War, Kala fled Subterranea to gain assistance from the heroes of the surface world. She went to Iron Man, whom she had first encountered years before. The Outcasts, under orders of the Mole Man that Kala must not be allowed to leave his realm, followed her and attempted to force her to return. The Outcasts attacked Iron Man, with Digger and Landslide grabbing Kala and headed back to their realm.

Kala convinced them to take her to the Netherworlders, but the Netherworlders sought to kill her for past actions. However, Iron Man arrived and fought them off, with assistance from Digger and Landslide. The Netherworlders, fearing destruction from her allies, elected to offer Kala their rule once again. However, Kala declined the offer, and left to try to find the missing Mole Man.

Seems to be more or less the leader, as he tends to be at the front of the group and take most initiatives.


“Then the Outcasts will drive this menace out… or die trying !”
