History: (West Coast Avengers III#7) - While fighting a team of supervillains affiliated with M.O.D.O.K., who was using the alias B.R.O.D.O.K., Gwenpool of the West Coast Avengers found a small Land-Shark, a shark with legs who could breathe oxygen, that she named Jeff after a cat she'd had previously. Likely created by B.R.O.D.O.K., who had attacked the West Coast Avengers with massive Land-Sharks days before, Jeff greeted the West Coast Avengers with a toothy smile and they reluctantly agreed to allow Gwen to keep him so long as he didn't bite anyone but supervillains. Jeff interacted with the team and their ally, Marvel Boy.(West Coast Avengers III#8 (fb) - BTS) - Gwen fed Jeff prime rib.
(Deadpool VIII#6) - After playing cards with Deadpool and the Night Wolf, Jeff joined Deadpool hiding within the form of Jelby and passing through the gate to Krakoa. They met the X-Men, many of whom found Jeff adorable, and briefly sparred with them. During the fight, Jeff was thrown at Storm's face and he briefly had her head in his mouth, and he bit Polaris' leg. Magik teleported Deadpool and Jeff home, and Jeff barfed up a Krakoan flower that he'd swallowed.
(Deadpool VIII#7) - Jeff was startled when Deadpool woke from a nightmare. When Deadpool tried leaving Jeff behind on a mission, Jeff bit his face then accompanied Wade and Elsa to a mission in Greenland, teleported there by Hurl. They went through the Seam into the dimension of the Bone Beasts, and Jeff bit the beasts in his way during the following battle. They soon confronted the Queen of the Bone Beasts directly.
(Deadpool VIII#8 (fb) - BTS) - Jeff, Deadpool, and Elsa were captured and tied up.
(Deadpool VIII#8) - Deadpool freed Jeff and Elsa, and they met the captured kids, including Svetja. They then confronted the Bone Beasts directly.
(Deadpool VIII#9) - Elsa and Jeff got Svetja and the others to safety as Deadpool battled the Queen of the Bone Beasts and her minions.
(Deadpool VIII#10) - When Knull took over the planet, Jeff ate pizza while Deadpool made plans with his allies, then Jeff pulled a rope to reveal a board full of pictures of monsters that Deadpool had prepared. Deadpool aseembled a team that included Elsa, Bun Bun the Destroyer, Kohlaab the Pile, Chet Morita, Sauron, Mister Frosty, Fishhead, Zrrgo, Shiny, Night Wolf, and Jeff. After Jeff heard members of the Deo Monstri Cult prophesy that Deadpool would be consumed by Knull, the team began battling symbiote dragons. Jeff was briefly taken over by a symbiote, but Jelby contained him to protect him. Soon, after the defeat of the dragon, they restored Jeff to normal by blasting the symbiote off him with loud noises.
