Mort Noris and his younger brother where born into the ghetto’s of New York. After their parents died Mort took to crime to provide for himself and his little brother. Thanks to his brutality he was recruited by the Maggia crime Family based in New York. One night he was tasked with robbing a truck of an unidentified radioactive isotope for his bosses. After securing the truck he and his brother were accidentally irradiated by the compound. Rushing into the polluted east river Mort when he surfaced found himself transformed into a green scaled, finned headed, clawed hand, flipper footed creature. His condition and the resulting superpowers got him promoted to the head of the local Maggie territory. He then tried to strong arm local business by blowing up their trucks and buildings so he could get protection money or control over their entire operation. His reign of terror came to an end when said business owners hired Luke Cage to help them. Luke found his base of operation while Fish though the defeat of Luke would add to his notoriety. They battled high above a skyscraper and in the end Mr. Fish was defeated and fell to his death. After his death his young brother took up the mantle of Mr. Fish having been exposed to the same radioactive Isotope.
