History: (Punisher III#15) - After Blastfurance of the Mutant Liberation Front was destroyed by the Punisher and X-Cutioner, its remains were sent to an FBI lab in Washington, where Sculder and Mully investigated it. Mully wondered if Blastfurnace belonged in their "hex files," to which Sculder replied, "Blast it, Mully-- I'm a pathologist, not a mechanic. It's dead, Jim." Just then, a new version of Blastfurnace appeared in the laboratory and killed the two of them, along with the rest of the lab staff, and destroyed all the evidence of its predecessor in order to prevent the FBI from learning that the MLF were not actually mutants.

Comments: Created by John Ostrander, Tom Lyle and Robert Jones.

Sculder and Mully are, of course, parodies of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully of the television series The X-Files.

The character of "Mully" should have been a woman to correspond to Scully, but the dialogue was directed to a man. Maybe the balloon was meant to point to the female agent?

Weirdly, Sculder's dialogue is actually a play on that of Dr. Leonard H. "Bones" McCoy of Star Trek.

There are also cameos of Mulder + Scully types in Sensational Spider-Man I#19.

It occurred to it might be mildly interesting if these two Mulder/Scully "homage" pairs were actually the same couple (see Sculder & Mully. Jared Sculder and Amber Mully. I don't recall how "thoroughly" Blastfurnace killed Sculder and Mully, but if they survived, they could've quit the FBI and eventually gone to work for the Medallion.
