History: (Marvel Two-in-One I#71 (fb) – BTS) – Dr. Henry Croft, a human mutated into one of the amphibious Hydro-Men (and having a physical appearance much like the Inhuman Triton) by Terrigen Mists, was brought to Attilan for treatment and Budan (a technician) was among the Inhumans who were assigned to tend to him, along with Nadar.
(Marvel Two-in-One I#71) – Mr. Fantastic and the Thing arrived to help with Croft. While they worked, a large machine nearly fell on Budan and the others, but Thing stopped it. In short time, Richards helped Budan and the others to create an "anti-Terrigen" compound, which soon returned Croft to human.
