Muckman, aka Garson Grunge or The Noxious Avenger, is an ally of the Ninja Turtles. As the former garbage man of New York City, Garson Grunge, he is a mutant made out of garbage and has a mutant eyeball named Joe Eyeball. He is New York's Monster Hero and the muscles of the Mighty Mutanimals. Muckman debuts in The Noxious Avenger.
Inside an abandoned Kraang Lab, Bebop and Rocksteady were fighting the Ninja Turtles when the duo were searching for Reagent-X for Shredder and Baxter Fly. In the alley next to the building, a garbageman named Garson Grunge was cleaning up the place. Then when Bebop managed to throw a canister of Mutagen at Michelangelo, he tucked in his head and then the canister went out through the window. Unlucky for Garson Grunge, the Mutagen fell on him and he also fall on trash. There he mutated into a garbage monster known as Muckman.
