History: (Daredevil I#252) - During the apparently Apocalyptic events of the "Fall of the Mutants" cross-over that occurred in New York City, Bad Seed joined the ranks of those afraid or ready to take advantage of the chaos who were led by Ammo, who named him by calling him "a Bad Seed." He participated in the ensuing looting and rioting and helped Ammo draw up a plan to attack the hospital for drugs and medical supplies. Before this could be carried out, Daredevil, Black Widow, the police, several concerned citizens, and three Vietnam veterans attacked the armory the gang and Bad Seed were using as a base of operations. In this final battle, it is unknown what became of Bad Seed; he was either killed or wounded by Ammo when he began to fire indiscriminately into both sides of the conflict, or he escaped.

Comments: Created by Ann Nocenti and John Romita Jr.

I’m not sure if this character made any appearances before or after this appearance; if so, please let me know. He was an interesting character, having reservations about what Ammo had planned for whom he dubbed "victims." What happened to him after this? Did Ammo’s murderous assault against innocents, friends, and foes reinforce Ammo’s ideology of "victors" and "victims" within him? Did it disgust him, making him change for the better? An event as traumatic as this would definitely have one of these effects on him.

The vets may have been members of the Guardian Angels or some Marvel Universe variant of this organization. Only one of them was seen to die in the final conflict so the others might still be alive.
