The young Devil Dinosaur was nearly burned to death by a tribe of Killer-Folk, hostile beings native to his planet, but was rescued by Moon Boy, a young member of a rival tribe, the Small-Folk. Exposure to the Killer-folk's fire activated a mutation in the dinosaur which gave him powers greater than others of his species and turned his skin from olive green to flame red. Devil Dinosaur is fiercely loyal to his constant companion Moon-Boy and seems more intelligent than the average dinosaur.
Time in "Dinosaur World"
Godzilla went on rampages throughout Earth-616. In an attempt to stop the monster, S.H.I.E.L.D. shrinks Godzilla with Pym Particles and attempts to teleport him via a time machine to the prehistoric past. However, Godzilla's radiation distorts the time machine so that he is transported to the alternate universe of Dinosaur World instead. While there he briefly unites with Moon Boy and Devil against a common foe before being pulled back to the main Marvel continuity.
In a nod to the Godzilla rampage, the Thing of the Fantastic Four travels to a Pacific island where "Devil Dinosaur: The Movie" was being produced. During the Thing's visit, Godzilla appears, battling and destroying a robot Devil Dinosaur used in the film, Godzilla disappears once again into the ocean.
The Fallen Angels
Ariel, an extraterrestrial mutant with teleportation powers, teleports the Fallen Angles to Dinosaur World where the group convinces Devil and Moon Boy to join their team and return with them to Earth-616. Devil and Moon-Boy are returned to their own universe when the Fallen Angels disband.
Various travels to Earth-616 and visited on Earth-78411
The sorceress Jennifer Kale, in an attempt to return Howard the Duck to his homeworld, inadvertently teleports Devil Dinosaur and Moon Boy into her New York apartment. The disoriented dinosaur rampages through the city before being subdued by Ghost Rider.
Stranded in modern day Earth-616 after their teleportation there by Jennifer Kale, the pair is hypnotized into joining the Circus of Crime. After being rescued by Spider-man, Devil and Moon Boy are relocated to the Savage Land.
At sometime, he was cloned into an evil Devil Dinosaur , who was revealed to be the head of two organizations with ties to terrorism, the Beyond Corporation© and S.I.L.E.N.T., both which he created due to his growing hatred of "monkeys". He had also the power of speech and seems to hate his clone's partner, saying "Moon-Boy hated me. Moon-Boy had to die. Moon-Boy tasted bad and gave me considerable rectal distress.".
Moon Boy abducted
The Heroes for Hire mercenaries go on a mission for S.H.I.E.L.D. to retrieve Moon Boy from the Savage Land and encounter Devil Dinosaur in the process. Devil is found fiercely guarding a nest containing a clutch of eggs that apparently he himself has laid and the dinosaur abandons Moon Boy to ensure their safety. The discrepancy between this development and his previously presumed male sex is noted by the mercenaries, who can only speculate as to the cause of the change.
