Scumbug is an enemy of the Ninja Turtles. Formerly an anonymous businessman that was kidnapped and mutated inside of Baxter Stockman's Lab by Baxter Fly (credited as Business Jerk), he is a mutant hybrid between spider and beetle that serves Baxter Fly. Him and Antrax both help out Baxter Fly so that Baxter Fly could help out Shredder and The Foot Clan in getting his money cache back and to eliminate most of Shredder's enemies. Scumbug debuts in The Insecta Trifecta.
After Baxter Fly was told by Shredder that he was the most loyal of all the mutants from The Foot Clan, he soon acted fast afterwards to help out his master. At Baxter Stockman's Lab, he started to plan out on creating mutant bugs to serve The Foot in increasing in money and power. After creating Antrax, he had kidnapped an anonymous businessman from New York City. He then lets him go into the Mutagen Tank and starts to mutate. Due to the Mutagen having the DNA of both a stag beetle and a spider, the man mutates into a stag beetle/spider hybrid known as Scumbug.
