Powers/Abilities: Casper Green was a normal but greedy human who was obsessed with hoarding money. He was later transformed to have a giant bee's head, with bees no longer seeing him as a threat.
(Mystic#7/4 (fb) - BTS) - Casper Green was a greedy man who engaged in various legal activities to secure more cash for himself, reveling in its touch; he took on extra jobs in his free time just to get more money that he didn't actually need, but also refused charity.
(Mystic#7/4) - Green delighted in his accumulated cash and turned away a man seeking help. When Mrs. Hare defaulted on a loan he had given her, Green took her car as collateral to secure interest payments, despite her seeking just a week's extension. Now with a car, Green took on another job as a test subject for Walter Blane, who was engaged in special research on bees; the work involved tending to Blane's bees, although they didn't like Green. One time, he absent-mindedly stumbled into the hive-yard without protective gear; the bees became agitated and attacked him, stinging him mercilessly. He ran into Blane's lab, but the scientist was disappointed that Green was upsetting his bees so much and threatened to let him go. Desperate for more money, Green begged to stay on and asked Blane why the bees didn't sting him. Blane showed him his special serum but warned him that it hadn't been perfected yet. Soon after, Green stole into the lab and drank a little of the serum and the bees no longer acted aggressively toward him. Green drove home but was confronted by an angry Mrs. Hare, who declared that he would pay somehow for his selfish acts, but she shrieked when she saw him and ran away. Puzzled, Green went to look in a mirror and was shocked to see that his head was now that of a giant bee.

Profile by Grendel Prime.
Casper Green has no known connections to:
Walter Blane was a scientist of sorts who was experimenting on human/bee physiology, and had developed a serum that let him live among the bees as a friend and not be stung; however, the serum had not yet been perfected and would affect people with different results. He employed Green as a subject to see how the bees reacted with him. He later showed Green the serum that gave him immunity from the bees.
