Bzztl Gvyn (usually known simply as "Bzztl") was the son of Vok, the last known survivor of the D'Bari race. D'Bari can reproduce asexually as well as sexually, and Bzztl was budded off of Vok while Vok was a prisoner on the Collector's Prisonworld.

Bzztl never knew the homeworld of his people: D'Bari IV. The planet had been destroyed by the Dark Phoenix before he was born.

Bzztl's father Vuk is the member of the D'Bari race who is best known to Earth. Vuk came to Earth over 2000 years ago, and was stranded there. He was often mistaken for Medusa during the time he spent hiding on Earth. Bzztl's father Vuk first encountered Earth's super-heroes when he temporarily turned the Avengers to stone soon after they rescued Captain America from thawing ice.

Somehow Vuk ended up on the Collector's Prisonworld, which is where Bzztl was budded off of Vuk and "born."

Bzztl and his father, the "last surviving D'bari and his son" were prisones on prisonworld when the mutant Earth hero Wolverine arrived there. Bzztl and Vuk's cell was inspected by agents of the Collector after Wolverine went missing, and the agents were tasked with finding him.

When the world-eater Galactus arrived, Wolverine tried to challenge him. But Wolverine was defeated by Galactus and Galactus consumed Prisonworld. Many alien prisoners being held captive there perished, but Bzztl was specifically seen as one of the inhabitants who managed to escape and leave the planet before it was destroyed. (Wolverine also escaped and survived.) Bzztl's father Vuk was not seen among those successfully escaping. Some speculated that Vuk died then, but he may have escaped.
