Nothing is known of his early life until he came into possession of the Wangal which he used to try and establish himself as the Houngan Supreme of Haiti. As he amassed power and followers he was opposed by Daniel Drumm. When he was defeated by Daniel he vowed revenge and using a voodoo doll effigy of Daniel he sapped the boys power and eventually killed him [Strange Tales #169]. Jericho who had returned to Haiti to aid his brother was easily defeated by Damballah who taunted him and allowed him to live [Strange Tales #169].
He then called together the Voodoo priest and priestesses across the globe to declare himself Houngan Supreme. When the Asian representative scoffed at his claims he incinerated him to intimidate the rest of the ‘Council of Vaudou’ into submission [Strange Tales #170]. Jericho Drumm now Brother Voodoo challenged him to single combat and after he was stripped of the Wengal he was killed by the very snakes he once controlled [Strange Tales #170].
