Retired entomologist Howard Highmore was done studying insects for a living, but he built his own building in his back yard where he would collect bugs and keep them contained. Unmarried and childless, Howard spent most of his time studying his tiny pets, and was developing a technology whereby he could communicate with them. Sadly, he was the butt of many jokes by the neighborhood children, who would stop in front of his house to heckle him for what they considered a strange and creepy hobby. One night, while he was working in his makeshift lab, a particularly cruel teenager lobbed a bottle of burning gasoline through one of the building’s windows, instantly starting a horrific fire that killed every one of Howard’s specimens and injured him severely. Sick of the constant harrassment, Howard turned his knowledge of insect communication into a suit that allowed him to take command of the minds of any and all insects in his vicinity. Then he began his reign of terror on the community as the Bugmaster.
