(Excalibur: Mojo Mayhem (fb) - BTS) - Tracker-Tiger was one of several bipedal warriors working for Mojo along with the Trademark Police. He was sent to hunt and capture Ricochet Rita and the X-Babies when the latter tried to escape getting branded by Mojo.
(Excalibur: Mojo Mayhem) - Tracker-Tiger was successful in locating Sugah, one of the X-Babies. The towering tiger was about to stomp on her with his bare foot when little Longshot hit his massive paw with of his razor-sharp blades. Unable to pull out the pointy knife, Tracker-Tiger cried out for Androcles, for someone to help him pull it out. Sugah and the other X-Babies quickly escaped the distracted Tiger.
Comments: Created by Chris Claremont (writer), Arthur Adams (pencils), Terry Austin, Bob Wiacek (inkers).
Tracker-Tiger is an obvious reference to the ancient Greek fable of Androclus and the Lion in which the escaped slave Androclues befriends a fierce lion after pulling a thorn from the creature's paw. Chris Claremont isn't even subtle about the homage, since he even has Tracker-Tiger call out for "Androcles" after Longshot's blade is stuck in his paw.
