Excavator is the teenage son of Brian Calusky, also known as Piledriver of the Wrecking Crew. He lived with his grandparents until the Wrecking Crew moved their base of operations to Los Angeles. He was taken in by the Crew and given a portion of their powers, which they were not very happy about. The Wrecking Crew broke into a bank, but were confronted by five members of the Runaways, who wanted to take Ricky back to his grandparents. The Wrecking Crew were defeated and returned to custody, but Ricky was let go. He claimed to have an enchanted shovel, but it displayed no special properties, and broke when he struck Molly Hayes.
