When the British superhero team Excalibur were abducted by the government agent Nigel-Orpington-Smythe, he used many of the reality-altered youngsters known as the Warpies to abduct and imprison them. However, Silkworm, along with a group of the other Warpies whose powers were not suited to frontline combat resented those Warpies who were in Orpington-Smythe's privileged teams the Cherubim, the Seraphim, and Advocates, and decided to help Excalibur in battle against them.

Currently none, all of the Warpies were depowered by Captain Britain on Otherworld using the Sword of Might. [4]

Strength level

Silkworm apparently possessed the normal human strength of a boy of his age and build.

Silkworm was possibly a homosexual based upon conversations between himself and Nightcrawler. [2]
