He may have worn some sort of armor.

History: Mordag's origins are unrevealed.
(Dazzler#2) - Mordag was part of a "living wall of destructive
demons" (as described by Iron Man) summoned by the Enchantress to fight off
Dazzler's allies while she dealt with Dazzler personally during her quest to
obtain power from the extradimensional
Mordag charged the Beast, proclaiming himself "Matchless, merciless Mordag -- Savage slayer of a thousand fearsome foes -- Veteran conqueror from countless bloody conflicts!" Unimpressed, Beast simply rolled under and booted Mordag away (making him drop his morning star), describing himself in return as "the Beast...a mild and merry mutant who's an Avenger in good standing...and a former member of the Mickey Mouse Club."
After Dazzler drove off the Messenger, the Enchantress departed, taking her "Ghastly Guardians" with her.
