Origin

The fashion-obsessed alien Brum-El sent his wardrobe into space from the apparently doomed planet. After the space wardrobe had a crash in space only two articles survived, making planet-fall on Earth. One article of clothing was a nasty tempered sock and the other a green bodysuit found by the mentally unstable Irwin Schwab who became the obnoxious sometime villain, sometime hero known as Ambush Bug.
