History: (X-Force#116 (fb)) - Plazm was seen on a stealth mission with X-Force in North Africa where Sluk was killed.

(X-Force I#116 - BTS) - Afterwards, X-Force team leader Zeitgeist viewed footage of the North African mission, noting that he had wanted to see how Plazm and Batterin Ram operated on point, but after watching Plazm in action, Zeitgeist thought about leaving Plazm on defensive duties. At some point, an images of Plazm were merchanised and sold across the nation. A headshot photo of Plazm hung within the Orange County, California X-Force Cafe.

(X-Force I#120 (fb) - BTS) - While viewing the North African footage of Plazm and the other X-Force members, Zeitgeist and the Coach discussed the concept of killing most of the team in order to bring in fresh faces to please the team's investors.

(X-Force I#116) - Plazm prepared for a new mission but when Gin Genie went into a panic, Plazm tried to calm the arguments between Gin Genie and the others by trying out a new technique with powers, covering Gin Genie with his own liquid form to help her body release more endorphins. He later attended a mission briefing in which X-Force learned they would be rescuing boy band Boys R Us from a group of armed gunmen in New York. During the mission, Plazm took out some of the gunmen but was ultimately killed alongside Gin Genie and la Nuit when a helicopter fired on the team.

(X-Force I#120 - BTS) - An image of Plazm with the rest of X-Force was turned into an expensive crystal print, which X-Force team owner Spike Freeman bought, only to destroy it with a sledgehammer.

(X-Men Icons: Chamber#1 - BTS) - Footage of Plazm during an X-Force mission aired on television as the undercover Chamber met his new roommate Walter, who referred to the broadcast to explain to Chamber how mutants were celebrities now.
