"The Lumbermen" have no known connection to
Chris Reichert was one of the mutated lumberjacks who was rampaging through Newfoundland. During the fight with X-Statix, he dodged as Roy tried to impale the Orphan with a tree trunk.
Chris presumably possessed superhuman strength and durability, like the other Lumbermen.
Jason Reichert was another of the mutated lumberjacks ravaging Newfoundland. He was blonde and got blasted by the Anarchist's acidic energy blasts without dying.
Jason possessed superhuman durability, as he was able to withstand a blast of the Anarchist's acidic energy with the acid affecting him. He presumably had the same superhuman strength that the other Lumbermen had.
Kevin Smith was one of the mutated lumberjacks who helped ravage Newfoundland until X-Statix arrived. He had brown hair and wore an orange hat.
He presumably had the same superhuman strength and durability that the other Lumbermen had.
Roy Cook was yet another of the mutated lumberjacks and tried to impale the Orphan with a tree trunk when X-Statix arrived to stop the Lumbermen from rampaging through Newfoundland. He had black hair and wore a blue hat, red pajama bottoms, and a green plaid shirt.
He had superhuman strength, able to lift an entire downed tree without aid, and presumably had superhuman durability, like the other Lumbermen.
