Phil Descard, was a botanist on an environmental survey which was struck down by Loki's creation of the magical Fire Fountain. The survey team and the airplane's crew were magically transformed into super-humans.

They then created a city and area of land near the Fountain and, soon after, Alpha Flight and the X-Men arrived. Soon after, it was revealed that the Fountain was poison to magical beings and robbed people of their creativity.

Those touched by the Fountain rejected his gift and the fountain was destroyed.


As the Lord of the Plants, Descard had the ability to magically create and control plant life. As well, he was physically far superior to normal humans.
