(Daredevil: Dark Nights#4 (fb) - BTS) - Martin Wigum's wife was arrested for capital murder, and the judge denied her bail. Before she went to trial, Mrs. Wigum hanged herself in her cell. To get revenge, Buggit tried killing the judge, but he was arrested and sent to prison. While he was there, his only visitor was his cousin, Michael Rochelle. After getting out of jail, Buggit went to stay with Rochelle and his wife, Sara. (Daredevil: Dark Nights#5 (fb) - BTS) - Criminal Frank Milo had Councilwoman Stevens killed, and Robert agreed to take the fall for the murder if Milo would pay for Sara's medical treatment, as Sara had lupus. Wanting to help his cousin, Buggit made plans to steal the murder weapon so that there wouldn't be evidence against Robert.

(Daredevil: Dark Nights#4) - At the courthouse, Buggitt knocked over Harold Jenkins and stole the murder weapon from the evidence box, then he escaped, unseen by anyone (including Keith) except the hero Daredevil, who pursued him. Daredevil exposed Buggitt on the subway, but the villain fled, rushing up the stairs before leaping onto a light post and running up the side of a building, startling Tanya. Daredevil soon apprehended Buggit by dousing him with flour, but they happened upon Shocker committing a crime, and Shocker attacked the hero, allowing Buggit to escape. Daredevil still pursued him, but Buggit escaped by passing the Avengers (Iron Man, Spider-Man, Thor), who were battling a giant subterranean monster. Buggit tossed the gun in the river, then went home to find Sara Rochelle clutching the corpse of Michael, who'd just been shot to death.

(Daredevil: Dark Nights#5) - Daredevil entered the apartment and Buggit rushed across the room, strapping a small bomb to himself before he jumped through the window to escape, saying he only had revenge left. After Daredevil saved baby Connor from falling and helping wounded police officer Elliot, Daredevil called to warn the police, including assistant district attorney Kirsten McDuffie, to rush and protect Milo and his men. Buggit arrived with his bomb and rushed into the club, threatening Milo, Tony, Sammy, and others. Daredevil arrived and disarmed Milo's men, then knocked Milo out. The hero explained that he'd been working with Robert, who wanted Buggit to have a better life. Kirsten McDuffie brought Sara there and Sara helped get Buggit agree to surrender, as he knew he could help take care of her when he got out of jail.

Comments: Created by David Lapham (writer/artist).

Buggit is given a little bit of back-story, but there is no information on how he received his powers. He could be a mutate (presumed for this profile), a mutant, an Inhuman, an alien or alien experiment, a magic user, or even a construct. He may have been born ten inches tall, or altered at some point. We also know little about Mrs. Wigum, his wife, and whether she was also ten inches tall.

The origin of the bizarre name Buggit is unknown.

(Wiggum is also the last name of the police chief on the Simpsons).
