Sludge mutants often possess an extraordinary ability to sow chaos and dissent in any environment. Even the most highly organized worlds are left in ruin by Sludge influence: high officials turn rabid with madness, benign plant and animal life become destructive mutant monsters, stable atmospheric and planetary conditions become volatile cauldrons of inhospitable waste. The Legion of Sludge, the legacy of King Kruel's diabolical influence, permeates every corner of the universe with its sinister effects. The current theory is that this atomic virus was designed to dissolve reality itself. All Sludge-spawned creatures are ultimately doomed to molecular disintegration. A cure to annihilate this enemy remains elusive, save the Sludginator, which vanished with MegaBot 206 at the Darius Conflict.
