|Behind the Scenes|
The Mox-Pox are a sentient disease.
The Silver Surfer describes them as one of the most contagious in the universe. They are spinly purple creatures with six limbs.
They had infected Jumbonox the Giganormous, but its sentient antibodies, the Anti-Bodz, kept the Mox-Pox at bay.
When Silver Surfer and Dawn Greenwood were swallowed by Jumbonox, the Surfer weakened the Anti-Bodz, giving the Mox-Pox a chance to escape. The Surfer and Dawn distracted the Mox-Pox by telling them stories about the Brundlebuds, giving the Anti-Bodz enough time to recover. The Mox-Pox eventually tired and fell asleep allowing the Anti-Bodz to contain them.
While a dangerous disease, they also possess child-like innocence when listening to stories.
