When he turned 18, Mike was kicked out of his house by his parents. Struggling to live on his own and with minimum wage not paying the bills, Mike took part in a new company's clinical trial on experimental cancer drugs.
Desperate for money, he ignored the dangers this represented and several hours after taking this new drug, passed out. Out of all the people who participated in this trial, he was the only one to become ill. 

As he woke up in a hospital bed, he learned that this drug had caused catastrophic side effects and irreversible changes to his body. His skin had turned a pale yellow and the iris of his eyes had turned red. He had gained weight and he had lost all of his hair. He immediatedly started complaining of stomach issues.

The nurse insisted he eat something, so he did. Shortly afterwards while she was checking his vitals, he became nauseous and before the nurse could react, he vomited all over her. She reacted as if someone has just thrown scalding hot water all over her.

Mike immediately called for help but by the time another nurse arrived the first nurse had died. Security was called but during the commotion, Mike slipped out of the hospital.

Now a wanted man, he went underground. Numerous run-ins with the law and street gangs resulted in the scar on his left eye. He took the name Bile, a biohazard tattoo on the back of his head oddly complementing his choice.

To this day, it is unknown whether it was the drug itself that caused these side effects to his physiology, a combination of the drug or something in Mike's body.


Substance secretion: Bile's stomach holds 50 times the amount of acid  an average human has (roughly 5 litres).
He has learned to control it and can release large globs, small globs and even propel them forward and moderately fast speeds. These globs of acid are extremely volatile, able to melt doors, cause bodily injury and if a victim is over exposed death can occur.

Enhanced vitals: His body's resistance to physical harm is higher than normal and it is not quite known exactly how strong Bile is, but witnesses say they have seen him lift a human being.

Acid resistance: Bile skin is resistant to his highly concentrated gastric acid.

Weaknesses: He cannot open his left eye due to the injury he received, so he has a sight disadvantage. 

After using all the acid in his stomach it takes time to rebuild unless he eats something immediately. So if he is in a fight and expends all of his acid he may be out of the fight for a while so must rely on hand to hand combat. 

Limitations: Although he has a high amount of acid within his stomach, his stomach itself can only maintain so much acid for a certain amount of time. So he has to release it periodically. Unfortunate for some that usually ends up being on someone. 

Appearance: Bile has a sickly yellow/green skin, a red and yellow eye and a biohazard tattoo on the back of his head.
