Origin

Nathan Grey was born in an alternate timeline in which Apocalypse had conquered North America. Grey was cloned by Apocalypse's horseman, Mr. Sinister, from the genetic material of Scott Summers (Cyclops) and Jean Grey (Phoenix II). Born and raised in Sinister's slave pens he was released years later by Cyclops, who had turned against Sinister. Grey joined the mutant engineer Forge, who led a traveling band of performers secretly conducting guerrilla warfare on Apocalypse's minions in the American Midwest.


Journeying to Apocalypse's Citadel, Grey fought the horseman Holocaust. In an attempt to breach Holocaust's armor, he stabbed him with a shard of the mystical M'Krann Crystal. Both vanished, transporting Grey to the our Earth where he became the hero known as X-Man.
