Developing super-powers due to his mother's exposure to the mutagenic chemical Compound V, the man known as "Mother's Milk" was recruited into the superhuman operative team "The Boys." His code-name is both metaphorical (referring to his moral code) and literal; as a side effect of his powers, the only nourishment that can keep him alive is his own mother's milk (which she continues to produce even at an advanced age, due to her own exposure to Compound V). When his teammate Billy Butcher devised a plan to eliminate all superhumans, Mother's Milk fought Butcher in an attempt to stop him. Butcher finally ended the fight by sticking a grenade in Mother's Milk's mouth. Due to his powers, Mother's Milk survived the explosion but was critically injured; Butcher then finished him off by covering his mouth and nose, suffocating him.
