"I'm just putting this slop out of its misery."
Mick Rory on Cronenbaby[src]

An unnamed creature, nicknamed "Cronenbaby" by Nate Heywood (after a notion of "creating a baby" by Mick Rory), was briefly created by Legends in an attempt to combine the powers of Totems of Zambesi.

In an attempt to create a creature to counter Mallus, the Legends used the powers of Totems of Zambesi combined with concentration of their minds, but due to faulty thoughts, their first creation become a wretched flesh monstrosity.

After the creation lived for a few seconds, engaging in unknown biological processes and seemingly being in great pain, Mick Rory performed a mercy kill on the creature with his Heat Gun, obliterating it from existence.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The creature is named after cult Canadian film director David Cronenberg, who is known for his body horror movies, which often include creatures with mis-jointed, illogically-structured, and surreal bodies not unlike what "Cronenbaby" possessed.
