Lucas Bishop was born into a reality in which

the original X-Men team was slain by the Sentinels.
With no organized force to stop them, the Sentinels
rounded up all mutants and imprisoned them in
Mutant Relocation Camps. Each mutant was given
a large M-shaped tattoo above their eyes to identify
them. Human and mutant alike rose up against the
Sentinels, overthrowing them. Bishop eventually
became a member of the Xavier Security Forces,
charged with capturing and punishing criminal
mutants. Bishop and his two partners followed and
killed the escaped mutant criminals that had opened
a portal back to the X-Men’s timeline, but Bishop’s
friends were killed in the process, stranding Bishop
in a world he had difficulty adapting to.

When Onslaught, a psychic merging of Xavier
and Magneto, attempted to destroy the X-Men,
Bishop absorbed the massive energy, saving all
of their lives. He stepped back into a familiar
role, becoming a protection officer in District
X, a neighborhood in Manhattan set aside for
mutants. He worked closely with govern-
ment forces to ensure the protection of its
citizens. Lately, he has maintained strong ties
with the Office of National Emergency, or
O*N*E, helping them manage the survivors
of M-Day.

Bishop is a stern and serious man dedicated

to doing what he believes is right, no matter what
anyone else thinks. This frequently leads him to
confrontations with others, as his actions can turn
lethal if he believes it necessary. Coming as he does
from a nightmarish future, Bishop constantly fears
that the events of his own timeline’s history are
taking place in the present he now inhabits, and
does anything he can to prevent their recurrence.

Abilities & Resources
Lucas Bishop has the mutant ability to absorb

almost any kind of energy directed against him,
building it up within himself, and then discharging
it at magnified levels. He is able to direct the power
out of his body through his hands or through the
weapons he carries. He is also able to use this power
to heal himself and increase his strength to immense
levels. In addition, Bishop is an accomplished police
officer, having worked as a member of the XSF in
the future and as a cop in Mutant Town in the pres-
ent, before M-Day stripped most of that district’s
mutants of their powers. His knowledge of future
events sometimes relates to events in the present.
