Buford Hollis, a musclebound trucker from Texarkana, Arkansas, was looking for his younger sister, who had joined a religious cult. This was in fact led by the villainous Man-Beast (disguised as the Hate-Monger), and it took the combined efforts of Razorback and Spider-Man to defeat him.
Later, Buford would be seen again in The Sensational She-Hulk. He and a female truck driver, Taryn O'Connell, hijacked NASA's experimental faster-than-light spacecraft, the "Star Blazer", in order to find Taryn's lover, Ulysses Solomon Archer. Archer had left for deep space several years prior, establishing himself as a space trucker. They arrived only to discover that Archer had already married Taryn's rival for his affections, Mary McGrill, who had traveled into space with him. In the same She-Hulk story arc, Razorback assisted in defeating Xemnu the Titan, who intended to transform Archer and Mary's as-yet-unborn child into a member of his own species. Eventually, Razorback took a job working for NASA piloting the Star Blazer, which Buford predictably re-named "Big Pig". (He named all his vehicles "Big Pig"!) He was accompanied by Taryn, who had fallen in love with him.
Both later returned to Earth, and Razorback inexplicably fought the Human Torch. Razorback has reportedly lost his mutant powers after the M-Day [issue # needed], though his size and strength are unaffected.
At some point, Hollis was abducted by the Skrulls and replaced with a Skrull doppelganger. Hollis returned to Earth following the Skrull's Secret Invasion and joined the Initiative team Battalion, which his Skrull duplicate had joined.
