Termite is a big, hulking mass of ugly bug. He has 4 eyes (2 small, almost human eyes in the middle of his face and 2 large insectoid on the sides of his head). Surrounding his mouth full of pointy teeth are large mandibles. His 6’7" body is covered by a chitinous exoskeleton. Two large clawing/digging arms allow him to tunnel through almost any substance with great speed.
Michael Hunt was student of electronics at IUPUI and worked part-time as a custodian. An accident with chemical pesticides transformed Michael into a gigantic insect. Horrified and ostracized, Michael eked out a life in the ghettos of Indianapolis until found by The Unicorn.
