Powers/Abilities: Wraath possesses superhuman strength (class 50?) and durability. His left arm was replaced at some point with a cybernetic limb.

Wraath claims to be the future self of Mammoth, meaning that one day Mammoth will go back in time and become him. The closer Wraath is to Mammoth, the more confused his senses become.

History: (Blackwulf #1)- Wraath claims to be the future self of Mammoth, a member of the Underground Legion, and serves Tantalus in Lyonesse. He was sent with the Peacekeepers to obtain Dr. Caitlin Maddox, a genetic researcher, but they were opposed by the Underground Legion. Wraath fought Mammoth, and again insisted on referring to him as his "temporal brother", although Mammoth didn't believe his claims. Ultimately, the Underground escaped with Dr. Maddox.

(Blackwulf #2)- Wraath confronted Lucian, who had just assumed the mantle of Blackwulf, and chastised him for turning against his father. Later, Wraath joined the Peacekeepers in setting after the corpses of two Skrulls held at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. They were again opposed by the Underground, now joined by Blackwulf, but managed to escape with the Skrull pilot.

(Blackwulf #4)- After the Skrull awoke, he attacked the Peacekeepers, even knocking down Wraath, but ended his fight when he learnt they served Tantalus.

(Blackwulf #6)- Wraath joined the Peacekeepers as they followed Tantalus back to his homeworld of Armechadon aboard the vessel Vimana.

(Blackwulf #8)- Upon their arrival at Armechadon, the Peacekeepers joined forces with the Deviants there against the Underground Legion, as well as the Kree Starforce, and the Underground of Armechadon.

(Blackwulf #10)- As the Underground engaged in its final battle with Tantalus, Wraath attempted to remove Mammoth from the playing field, hoping to spare him from his future, but Wraath was taken off-guard by Sentry #459. After tearing off the Sentry's head, Wraath returned to find that Mammoth's left arm had been cut off by Blackwulf to save him from Tantalus' Black Legacy. He tried to explain to Sparrow that he had attempted to warn Mammoth about Blackwulf, but she struck him down. Following the death of Tantalus, Wraath returned to earth alongside the Peacekeepers, now led by Khult.

Comments: Created by Glenn Herdling, Angel Medina and Bill Anderson.

Herdling was inspired to link Mammoth and Wraath together after noticing how similiar they looked in Medina's sketchbook.

The loss of Mammoth's left arm in Blackwulf #10 presumably means he is on his way to becoming Wraath.
