First Appearance: Squadron Supreme I#5 (January, 1986)

Powers/Abilities: Lamprey could absorb energy, both from living beings and inanimate objects. 

    When absorbing the energy from superhuman beings, Lamprey would gain a lesser amount of their superhuman powers, such as a small degree of superhuman speed from the Whizzer, superhuman strength and flight from Hyperion or energy projection/expulsion from Doctor Spectrum.

    His physical attributes could also increase depending on how much and from where he absorbed energy, with a maximum class 100 strength level and maximum levels of durability, stamina and reflexes in the superhuman range. Lamprey's speed could reach into the subsonic range at maximum levels, with a flight speed into the supersonic range. These augmented abilities were temporary, with each second he touched his victim granting him one hour's worth of augmented abilities, although he could only absorb 48 hours worth of augmented energy before risking serious bodily harm. 

    Additionally, there was an unspecified upper limit to the amount of power Lamprey could absorb from others, as, after absorbing power from Hyperion and Blue Eagle, Lamprey became overloaded with power when he added Doctor Spectrum's power and his body proved unable to handle it, causing him to explode.

History: (Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Master Edition I#8 - Lamprey entry - BTS) - Donald McGuiggin was a citizen of the United States of America and became a high school dropout. Over time, Donald gained extensive experience in street fighting.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Deluxe Edition I#12 - Squadron Supreme entry - BTS) - Donald made a name for himself as the professional criminal Lamprey, earning quite the criminal record.

(Gamer's Handbook of the Marvel Universe MU4 - Squadron Supreme entry - BTS) - Donald's identity of Lamprey was publicly known. An unrepentant criminal, Lamprey delighted in using his opponents' absorbed strengths against them.

(Squadron Supreme I#9 (fb)) - A Scarlet Centurion counterpart organized criminals Lamprey, Mink, Quagmire, Ape X, the Shape, Foxfire and Doctor Decibel into the Institute of Evil to act as his champions in a contest of champions against Earth-616's Elder of the Universe Grandmaster (with the latter choosing Squadron Supreme members as his team).

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Master Edition I#8 - Lamprey entry - BTS) - Lamprey was known to confide in his teammate Quagmire.

(Squadron Supreme I#6 (fb) - BTS) - Lamprey and the Institute of Evil were sometimes allies with the would-be world conqueror Master Menace.

(Squadron Supreme I#5) - After the Squadron Supreme's Golden Archer was captured by the Institute of Evil, Lamprey and his Institute teammates watched as Doctor Decibel forced Golden Archer to recount how he had been captured. Decibel then suggested having Golden Archer reveal the location of the Squadron Supreme's headquarters as Quagmire joked with Lamprey about how the Golden Archer would have "fallen archers" by the time the Institute was done with him. Laughing, Lamprey proclaimed Quagmire to be a riot as Ape X wished to hear more about the Squadron Supreme's Behavior Modification (B-Mod) machine. 

    Later that evening, after the Golden Archer had been forced to reveal not only the Squadron headquarters' location but also details on their security system, the real names of the Squadron members and the whereabouts of their next of kin, Lamprey suggested the Institute of Evil attack the Squadron Supreme while they slept, hoping to leech off of Hyperion's power before he could react. Ape X replied that Lamprey's idea was too risky but assured Lamprey that he would get his chance against Hyperion. Instead, Ape X ordered Lamprey to fly to New Troy and kidnap the family of Arcanna Jones, to which Lamprey commented that he liked the idea. After each member of the Institute was given his or her missions, Lamprey flew off into the night, giggling with glee about kidnapping.

    After kidnapping Arcanna's family, Lamprey regrouped with the rest of the Institute of Evil, and they attacked the Squadron Supreme headquarters when Tom Thumb was on monitor duty. Tom fought back, but Lamprey mocked Tom's fighting words, easily dodging Tom's attack before confronting Tom personally. Lamprey then absorbed the energy from Tom Thumb's force field, leaving Tom defenseless for Quagmire to capture. As Tom's computer summoned the other Squadron Supreme members, Lamprey and his Institute of Evil teammates smashed parts of the Squadron's headquarters and Ape X soon ordered the Institute of Evil to find the Squadron's B-Mod (Behavior Modification) machine. Doctor Decibel then had Quagmire bring Tom along to find the B-Mod machine and ordered Lamprey and the others to assume battle stations for the Squadron Supreme's likely arrival. As if on cue, the Squadron Supreme arrived on the scene and in the ensuing battle, Blue Eagle hit Lamprey with his staff before the battle was halted by the Institute of Evil revealing their hostages. Lamprey advised the Squadron to give up or risk their loved ones being killed, and the Squadron did as they were asked and surrendered.

    When Hyperion and Whizzer arrived, Lamprey jumped onto Hyperion and began leeching Hyperion's energy, leaving Hyperion weak enough to prevent standing. Lamprey and the Institute then used the B-Mod machine on the Squadron, but Whizzer escaped, returning a short time later with a gun and attacking the Institute. However, the seemingly mind-modified Squadron defended the Institute and two hours later, a laughing Lamprey and his Institute teammates returned to their headquarters with the Squadron, welcoming the heroes into their villainous ranks. Once inside the headquarters, however, the Squadron revealed their true colors and turned the tables on the Institute of Evil, with Lamprey getting knocked out by Amphibian and Power Princess. Lamprey and his teammates were then taken into custody.

(Squadron Supreme I#12 (fb)) - Nighthawk, a former Squadron Supreme member who opposed the Squadron's behavior modification, began seeking out superhumans who shared his belief that the Squadron Supreme had gone too far. However, he soon realized all heroes were part of the Squadron and villains like Lamprey and the Institute of Evil had just been defeated following their ill-fated attack on the Squadron.

(Squadron Supreme I#6 (fb) - BTS/Squadron Supreme I#12 (fb)) - Lamprey and the captured Institute of Evil members were subjected to the Squadron Supreme's B-Mod machine, and their minds were programmed to force them to serve the Squadron Supreme. This B-Modding prevented Lamprey from committing criminal acts and also prevented him from taking any negative action against any other Squadron Supreme member.

(Gamer's Handbook of the Marvel Universe MU4 - Squadron Supreme entry - BTS) - After being behavior modified, Lamprey's personality shifted to become somewhat playful, and he was unable to outwardly disbelieve or question any Squadron member, cooperating fully with their orders and unable to act on his own wishes.

(Squadron Supreme I#6 (fb) - BTS) - Lamprey and the former Institute of Evil members were then hired by the Squadron as workers and their former ally Master Menace learned of their behavior modification from his unidentified sources. Similarly, criminals Remnant, Pinball and Mink went to check on the Institute of Evil and also learned of their brainwashing.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Deluxe Edition I#12 - Squadron Supreme entry - Lamprey mini-entry - BTS) - Following his behavior modification, Lamprey was pardoned of his previous crimes.

(Squadron Supreme I#6) - Lamprey was assisting the Squadron's Doctor Spectrum with house construction within the Squadron's Squadron City headquarters when Hyperion arrived to touch base with them. Lamprey happily greeted Hyperion, who then checked in with Doctor Spectrum. Later, during a Squadron Supreme meeting, Power Princess brought up how helpful the former Institute of Evil members had been as laborers in the construction of Squadron Supreme headquarters, and she suggested electing Lamprey and the others as full members of the Squadron Supreme after the construction was completed. The Squadron then voted on Power Princess' proposal, with four members voting for their membership and four voting against. Hyperion was left to cast the tie-breaking vote, and he voted in favor of allowing Lamprey and his teammates to join the Squadron Supreme. Hyperion then announced plans to initiate Lamprey and the former Institute of Evil members the following morning.

(Squadron Supreme I#7) - After Hyperion was replaced by his Earth-616 Squadron Sinister counterpart, Lamprey and the rest of the Squadron Supreme were called to their hospital's conference room to discuss Hyperion, whom they assumed was their injured Earth-712 teammate. Some time later, Lamprey attended the funeral of Power Princess' elderly husband, Howard Shelton, after he apparently passed away from a heart attack (actually, the artificial Hyperion had siphoned the air out of Shelton's lungs).

(Squadron Supreme I#8) - A hundred miles from Squadron City, Lamprey, Doctor Spectrum and Earth-616's Hyperion construct were flying back from a crisis intervention mission when Hyperion asked about flying on ahead. When he did so, Lamprey commented to Doctor Spectrum how Hyperion sure seemed to know how to leave them in his trail, and Spectrum responded that Hyperion had moved faster when he moved in romantically on Power Princess following the death of her husband. Spectrum then remarked that Hyperion seemed like a changed man, prompting Lamprey to think to himself how his energy siphoning powers made him sensitive to the internal energy of others and how Hyperion's energy even seemed different. Continuing to fly, Lamprey thought about how he had been B-Modded to remain loyal to the Squadron Supreme, preventing him from voicing his suspicions about Hyperion being different.

    Lamprey later attended a Squadron Supreme meeting, where the team discussed the condition of Quagmire, who had earlier taken a massive dose of pacifying toxin while rescuing civilians. Upon hearing that Quagmire was comatose, Lamprey thought to himself how it seemed unlike Quagmire to give up fighting for his life over something mellow. The meeting was soon interrupted when the real Earth-712 Hyperion busted through the wall to confront his Earth-616 imposter. Hyperion-712 quickly took the fight out of the meeting room, but Power Princess ordered Lamprey and the other Squadron to split into teams and search for the fighting Hyperions. 

    Flying alongside Arcanna and Power Princess, Lamprey overheard Power Princess ask Arcanna if Hyperion's accusations that the Hyperion in their ranks was an impostor and was able to confirm with Power Princess that the  Hyperion who had broken into the meeting was indeed the real Earth-712 Hyperion. Lamprey then explained how he was previously unable to vocalize his suspicions due to the B-Modding preventing him from betraying a Squadron member but he was now free to speak since he was sure the artificial counterpart was not a real Squadron member. Lamprey and the rest of the Squadron Supreme soon regrouped after seeing flashes of the Hyperions' atomic vision at Presidents' Mountain. Witnessing the real Hyperion angry and fierce beating of the downed Earth-616 construct, Power Princess ordered Lamprey to leech off some of the real Hyperion's energy but Lamprey remarked that he had been B-Modded to prevent him from leeching energy from any Squadron member. He then stood silently alongside the rest of the Squadron as the articial Hyperion construct died in Power Princess' arms.

(Squadron Supreme I#9) - On a Sunday off, Lamprey played tennis against the Whizzer and despite thinking the game to be "cockamamie," Lamprey got the hang of it and planned to show Whizzer up while Arcanna, her husband, and Whizzer's wife watched. During the match, the Whizzer allowed Lamprey to leech some of his energy so the two could be more evenly matched in speed, but Lamprey thought he had an edge with his strength. 

    Later, while working with Ape X to find a way to cure his cancer, Tom Thumb summoned Lamprey and claimed that the Scarlet Centurion had stolen something from them, secretly lying to Lamprey to prevent Lamprey's behavior modification from halting his aiding Tom's plan to steal a cure for cancer from the Scarlet Centurion. Strapping a Time Harness onto Lamprey, Tom Thumb traveled into the Scarlet Centurion's alternate future with Lamprey and told Lamprey they were looking for a lab or a hospital that would store medical supplies. Lamprey lifted Tom Thumb into the air in an effort to help Tom find what he was searching for, and the two were spotted by robotic drones. The flying machines soon zapped Lamprey, who recharged himself on the energy and fired back, destroying the drones. 

    The two then ducked into the Scarlet Centurion's citadel, where Tom interrogated one of the Centurion's operatives to learn where the Panacea Potion was kept before leaving the operative for Lamprey to drain. Once Tom located the Panacea Potion, he retrieved it, but more guards soon arrived, and Lamprey quickly took down the guards, destroying the other Panacea Potions in the process. Despite fears that he might be stealing the last Panacea Potion and people would die without it, Tom Thumb had Lamprey activate the retrieval mechanism on his Time Harness, and the two returned to the present day Earth-712, unaware they had been observed by the Scarlet Centurion. Upon analysis, however, Tom Thumb realized that the Panacea Potion was nothing more than penicillin and complex vitamins, things that would not help him since he did not have centuries of eugenics to bolster his immune system like the people of Scarlet Centurion's future. Tom then resigned himself to eventual death, confusing Lamprey, who had no idea Tom even had cancer.

(Squadron Supreme I#10) - Lamprey attended (alongside the other Squadron Supreme members) and acted as a pallbearer at Tom Thumb's funeral after Tom succumbed to his cancer. 

    The next morning, Lamprey attended a Squadron Supreme meeting, where he was assigned to visit the Pavlovia Decriminalization Institute with Blue Eagle. As the meeting adjourned, Lamprey commented to Blue Eagle that they had gotten another "snoozer" of an assignment. During the trip to the Pavlovia Decriminalization Institute, Lamprey remarked that while he felt Blue Eagle wasn't his biggest fan, he'd appreciate Blue Eagle making conversation and Eagle apologized, thinking of how he had disapproved of Quagmire but that Quagmire had still proved himself by saving innocent lives. Lamprey quickly stopped the conversation, however, as the two arrived at the Institute. Inside, Blue Eagle introduced the Institute's head, Seward Braxton, to Lamprey and subsequently suggested Lamprey might have some ideas about the Institute's security set up, commending Lamprey as one of the brightest new Squadron recruits. 

    Later that evening, Lamprey attended another Squadron Supreme assembly, where the Whizzer nominated new heroes Redstone and Moonglow for Squadron membership. The team discussed the matter and when Blue Eagle suggested subjecting Redstone and Moonglow to behavior modification to ensure their loyalty to the Squadron, Lamprey seconded Blue Eagle, suggesting that all of the Squadron should submit to behavior modification if they thought it was such a good thing. Blue Eagle's suggestion was voted down, however, and Lamprey whispered that he agreed with Blue Eagle and warned that the Squadron would be sorry if they didn't submit the new recruits to the process. The meeting was soon interrupted by an emergency communication from Doctor Decibel, prompting the Squadron Supreme to rush to the hospital housing the comatose Quagmire. 

    Upon arrival, Lamprey immediately noticed the hospital overflowing with the muck Quagmire generated and confirmed it was indeed Quagmire's slime before Power Princess ordered Lamprey, Arcanna and Foxfire to find a way to halt the progression of the slime. When Arcanna and Foxfire's powers proved ineffective, Lamprey attempted to siphon energy from the slime but admitted that doing so made his nose runny and his stomach hurt. Lamprey soon noted that the hospital was half buried in Quagmire's slime and when the rescue party involving Hyperion and Doctor Spectrum emerged from the hospital with survivors, Lamprey remarked on how Hyperion was able to find a way out despite having been blinded in his battle with the Earth-616 Hyperion construct. Power Princess then ordered Lamprey to get the civilians to safety. While Lamprey was doing so, Power Princess ordered the life support plug pulled on Quagmire as the only option to stop the slime progression and Hyperion did so, retrieving Doctor Decibel's deceased body in the process.

(Squadron Supreme I#11) - During a practice session for the Squadron's new recruits (who were secretly working for former Squadron Supreme member Nighthawk to take down the Squadron from the inside), Lamprey guarded an American flag outside of Squadron City while the Squadron and their new recruits attempted to capture the flag. Expecting to easily tag his enemy combatants, Lamprey spouted overconfident banter but Moonglow increased the luminosity of her illusory self, momentarily blinding Lamprey. Regaining his composure, Lamprey then attempted to tag Moonglow but was shocked when his hand passed right through Moonglow's illusory self and he immediately demanded to know if it counted as a tag or not. When Redstone attempted to take advantage of the distraction by hurling the Shape at the flag, Lamprey managed to intercept Shape to prevent the flag from being taken. 

    The other Squadron members then circled Lamprey, hoping to defeat Lamprey as soon as he attacked, but Lamprey revealed his own ally, new recruit Thermite. Thermite then covered the flag while Lamprey tagged Redstone and attempted to tag Moonglow, only to again fall prey to her illusions when he went after an illusion while the real Moonglow captured the flag. Lamprey and his teammates then regrouped with the other Squadron practice squad and returned to Squadron City, with Lamprey muttering to Thermite that Moonglow had cheated. Along the way, new recruit Haywire admitted to Lamprey that he could only see desert and not Squadron City, prompting Lamprey to explain that Arcanna had cast a spell that camouflaged Squadron City and that perhaps if Haywire and the other new recruits made the grade, they would be able to see through the camouflage themselves.

    That night, at eight o'clock, Lamprey joined the rest of the Squadron Supreme at a special assembly in which membership was officially and publicly extended to Haywire, Redstone, Inertia, Moonglow and Thermite. 

    Days later, Lamprey, Haywire and the Whizzer toured the Hibernacle, America's first suspended animation emporium, and as they left, Haywire expressed hope that the building tour was not the most exciting thing that happens to Squadron members. Lamprey joked back that Haywire had to earn the fun assignments and after Haywire suggested the Whizzer zoom ahead to check on his family, Haywire invited Lamprey to a bar. Lamprey readily accepted the invitation, feeling as if he had hours to kill before dinner.

(Squadron Supreme I#11/Squadron Supreme I#12 (fb)) - Fifteen minutes later, however, Haywire led Lamprey to a seemingly abandoned bar and attacked him, entangling Lamprey's throat with his tanglewire. Immediately recognizing Haywire's allies, the Redeemers, as Squadron Supreme enemies, Lamprey was forced to sit in a device designed by Master Menace to remove behavior modifications. Lamprey was then subjected to the device and moments later, Lamprey emerged with his original villainous personality restored. Nighthawk then invited Lamprey to join the Redeemers if he wished revenge on the Squadron for altering his mind, and Lamprey readily joined, remarking that if he had learned anything as a Squadron Supreme member, it was the value of teamwork. Nighthawk then revealed to Lamprey the Redeemers' plan to attack the Squadron Supreme from within and suggested Lamprey return to the Squadron with Haywire and pretend as if nothing had happened until his former Institute allies could be deprogrammed.

(Squadron Supreme I#12) - Lamprey spent weeks pretending to be the upstanding Squadron Supreme member he was following his behavior modification, and he ultimately helped escort Foxfire to the Redeemers, welcoming her back after she was also deprogrammed. After Nighthawk explained his plan to Foxfire, she also agreed to help take down the Squadron Supreme. Nighthawk then suggested Lamprey and Foxfire return to the Squadron before they are missed, prompting a sarcastic Lamprey to respond with "riiiight." Lamprey then picked Foxfire up in his arms and flew off as Nighthawk asked Lamprey to inform the other Squadron infiltrators that they would be making their move soon. Lamprey remarked that it was about time, as it was difficult pretending to be brainwashed when he really wanted to take a swing at the self-righteous Squadron. 

    As the two flew back to Squadron City, Lamprey asked Foxfire how it felt to have her normal brain back and how great of a job he did pretending to still be with the Squadron. Foxfire appeared to still be somewhat shaken up, and she soon noticed a shootout but Lamprey expressed no interest in the shootout, claiming that he didn't have to do the "good guy stuff" anymore. Foxfire responded by asking how the Squadron would feel if they knew they had passed over a crime in progress, and Lamprey asked who would be telling them, prompting Foxfire to stifle her objections.

    Later, Lamprey joined the other Squadron Supreme members at a press conference to announce what they had accomplished by handling world affairs within the past year.

    Two hours later, Lamprey accompanied the Squadron back to Squadron City and when the team landed, they found themselves confronted by Nighthawk, Black Archer, Remnant, Mink and Pinball. When Nighthawk ordered the Squadron Supreme to surrender and Power Princess reminded him that his team of Redeemers were outnumbered, Lamprey and the other Squadron infiltrators revealed their true intentions. Doctor Spectrum activated a security system that placed energy handcuffs on all of the infiltrators, but Lamprey exclaimed that he would siphon the energy from the cuffs within seconds. Blue Eagle then punched Lamprey as a fight broke out between the Squadron Supreme and the Redeemers. 

    During the battle, Lamprey tried to get back at Hyperion and dove to leech his energy, only to hit a piece of sheet metal that Hyperion picked up to shield himself. Redstone subsequently pinned Hyperion's arms, and Lamprey leapt onto Hyperion, siphoning his energy then flying into the air with glee. He then turned his attention towards Blue Eagle, leeching the energy from Blue Eagle's wings as well. 

    Lamprey then laughingly commented to Remnant about watching Blue Eagle turn red as the hero fell from the sky, secretly shocking Remnant at how bloodthirsty he was. When Blue Eagle landed on Pinball, breaking his back, Remnant demanded Lamprey call an ambulance but an uncaring Lamprey flew off, smiling and saying he had heads to bash. With the Redeemers now claiming victory, Lamprey was sent to find the escaping Arcanna, unaware that Shape had taken the pregnant Arcanna to a hospital to give birth. 

    As Nighthawk was explaining how he had deprogrammed Lamprey and the others, a repentant Foxfire walked up and used her powers to rot the muscle tissue in Nighthawk's heart, causing a massive heart attack. Foxfire was, in turn, impaled by Mink and Doctor Spectrum rushed Foxfire to a hospital, along the way being met by Lamprey, who wished to drain the energy from Doctor Spectrum for his "collection." Despite Doctor Spectrum's warnings, Lamprey attempted to absorb the energy of Spectrum's Power Prism, and Spectrum projected its full power into Lamprey; the power influx (perhaps on top of the energies he had drained from Hyperion and Blue Eagle's wings) proved too much for Lamprey to handle, and Lamprey flew away in a panic, soon exploding near a mountain as Doctor Spectrum commented "Good riddance." 

(Squadron Supreme I#12 - BTS) - Following the Squadron Supreme's surrender, portions of Lamprey's corpse were recovered and taken to the Squadron City morgue, where he was pronounced dead on arrival with parts of his body still not yet recovered.

Comments: Created by Mark Gruenwald, Bob Hall and Sam de la Rosa.

    According to the Squadron Supreme's computer records, Lamprey and the Institute of Evil were subjected to the B-Mod machine on August 15, 1985 and at least Foxfire (and likely, the other Institute members) were elected for Squadron membership on September 21, 1985.
    While the years are topical and subject to Marvel's sliding time scale, the month and day could still apply.

    Given that Earth-712 is sort of a Marvel multiverse nod to the DC Universe, Lamprey's DC counterpart could be Parasite.
