First Appearance: Uncanny X-Men I#169 (May, 1983)

Powers/Abilities: Sunder was a mutant who possessed a measure of superhuman strength, allowing him to lift 70 tons at his peak. Sunder's enhanced musculature functioned extremely efficiently, producing far less fatigue toxins during physical activities. Under optimal conditions, he could exert himself fully for 24 hours before an appreciably decline set in. Sunder's skin was durable enough for him to withstand the impact from blows, falls or exposure to temperature extremes. Small caliber bullets could not penetrate his hide, though he remained vulnerable to high yield plasma weapons used by the Reavers. Sunder was unable to break a polymer cable of unknown origin. Having received very little formal training or education, Sunder mostly relied on his brute strength during combat. At heart, he was a kind, loving man who enjoyed the company of children.

Height: 7'1"
Weight: 245 lbs.
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Bald


(Uncanny X-Men I#176 (fb) - BTS) - Cast out from society because of his physical mutation, Sunder encountered fellow outcast mutants Callisto, Caliban and Masque. They banded together to form the Morlocks, a group of mutants living in the abandoned sewer tunnels and 1950s atomic bomb shelters that honeycomb Manhattan. Callisto became leader of the Morlocks, with Sunder, serving as her right hand man.

(Uncanny X-Men I#179 (fb) - BTS) - As a rite of passage, everyone who joined the Morlocks had to have their face and body altered by Masque. This symbolized their rejection of the life they led and the world they knew (see comments).

(Uncanny X-Men I#170 (fb) - BTS) - At some unrevealed point, the Morlocks obtained a length of polymer cable that was so durable, not even Sunder was able to break it.

(Uncanny X-Men I#169 - BTS) - When she became aware of the Angel (Warren Worthington III), Callisto started lusting after the beautiful X-Man and decided she wanted him by her side. She ordered Sunder and an undisclosed number of Morlocks to the surface world to capture the millionaire playboy. After overpowering Angel in his Manhattan penthouse, Sunder sent the others back to the Alley with their captive. He himself waited around for Warren's girlfriend Candy Southern to return.

(Uncanny X-Men I#169) - When Candy Southern returned home, she was immediately alarmed when she saw blood and stray feathers all over the place. Just as she called Charles Xavier to inform him of the attack, she was tapped on the shoulder by Sunder who introduced himself by saying he was there to hurt her. Seeing the lumbering brute was such a shock to Southern, she fainted. Satisfied, Sunder returned to the Morlock tunnels.

(Uncanny X-Men I#169 - BTS) - While Sunder assisted Callisto with the preparations for her marriage to Angel, the X-Men and their associate Amanda Sefton met with Candy. Equipped with a mini-Cerebro programmed with Angel's brainwaves, they headed out into sewers even as Sefton and Lockheed remained behind to guard Southern, should Sunder or anyone else return to finish the job. Using Cerebro as a guide, the team eventually made their way into the Morlock tunnels where they were almost instantly besieged by hordes of sewer dwellers.

(Uncanny X-Men I#169) - Sunder, Callisto, Plague and Masque looked on from a distance while the X-Men struggled to deal with the Morlocks. They were discovered by Ariel (Kitty Pryde) who in turn was spotted by Callisto who picked up the young girl's scent. Callisto ordered Plague to deal with her, but the old woman's hand went right through Kitty (though it did infect her). Not wanting their enemy to get away, Sunder unthinkingly ripped apart the wall she was phasing through. Kitty got away, while Sunder was chastised by Callisto for being a grand and glorious lummox.

(Uncanny X-Men I#169 - BTS) - Kitty, seperated from the others and deadly ill due to Plague's touch, was found in the sewers by Caliban, who brought her to his place to recover. During her stay, Kitty pleaded with Caliban to help her and the X-Men, even promising to stay with him forever if he made sure her teammates would be safe.

(Uncanny X-Men I#169) - Storm, Colossus and Nightcrawler eventually beat back the Morlocks and made their way into the Alley, where they were surprised to find Angel half-naked and tied to a velvet cross, with Callisto sadistically having her way with him. When the three mutants threatened to intervene, Callisto sent Sunder and the other Morlocks under her command to deal with them. The X-Men were overwhelmed, defeated and bound before the altar Callisto planned to use for her wedding ceremony.

(Uncanny X-Men I#170) - Outraged to see Callisto treat the Angel like a pet or a toy, Storm dared to raise her voice to interrupt the ceremony. Determined to teach her a lesson, Sunder forcibly yanked the windrider's hair, telling her to be silent and acknowledge the fact that Callisto ruled here. As if on cue, Colossus and Nightcrawler burst from their bonds and attacked. Nightcrawler went after Callisto, violently teleporting her around while Colossus attacked Sunder. Their fist fight was interrupted when Nightcrawler triumphantly held Callisto's unconscious body, threatening to kill her if Angel and the others weren't released. Sunder ordered the other Morlocks to stop, begging the X-Men not to hurt their leader. Hoping to capitalise on this unexpected turn, Storm reminded Sunder of Nightcrawler's terms, but was surprised by Plague who had snuck up and used her disease touch on the X-Men's leader. Now evenly matched, Plague forced Nightcrawler to surrender. The X-Men were tied up using ropes, chains and the polymer cable even Sunder could not break (see comments).

(Uncanny X-Men I#170 - BTS) - Kitty Pryde's illness increased to the point Caliban was forced to take her to Plague and force the old woman to restore the girl's health. Caliban carried the unconscious Kitty to the Alley.

(Uncanny X-Men I#170) - Arriving in time to interrupt the wedding ceremony, Caliban begged Callisto to save the sprite-child. Seeing their teammate caused Colossus and Nightcrawler to once again escape their bonds, with Colossus treatening the Morlocks he'd bring down the tunnel on their misbegotten heads if she dies. When Callisto refused to let any of them go, Caliban revealed the only way to freedom was by challenging Callisto as leader of the Morlocks. Sunder and the other Morlocks looked on as Storm accepted the challenge and went forth to confront Callisto, eventually stabbing and overpowering her.

(Uncanny X-Men I#171) - After using her new position as Morlock leader to enforce some new laws forbidding the underground community to harm humans in any way, Storm was confronted by the recently deposed and still injured Callisto. Claiming she wouldn't rest until she'd reclaimed her title, Callisto overexerted herself and collapsed. Picking her up, Storm ordered Sunder to put Callisto back to bed and to make sure she stayed there this time.

(Uncanny X-Men I#176 - BTS) - Noticing Caliban had been acting strange of late, Sunder joined Callisto and Masque for a visit to their fellow Morlocks founder. When they found his quarters empty, they waited around for him, all the while looking for clues what might be bothering him.

(Uncanny X-Men I#176) - Caliban who was less than happy to find the trio in his quarters. After some cajoling and with Masque producing a picture of Kitty Pryde, Caliban confessed how ashamed he felt for betraying his friends because Kitty had promised to stay with him forever in return for his help. Sensing an opportunity to get back at Storm and possibly reclaim her position as leader, Callisto promised Caliban that given time she'd make sure Kitty kept her promise.

(Uncanny X-Men I#178) - Planning to abduct Kitty by faking her death, Callisto, Sunder and Masque came across a recently deceased homeless girl lying in an alley on Manhattan's Lower East side. Sunder looked on as Masque reshaped her dead body into a copy of Kitty's.

(Uncanny X-Men I#178 - BTS) - Using Caliban's tracking abilities, the Morlocks met up with Kitty just as she was exiting the Baxter Building. Overpowering the young mutant, Sunder and the others brought her back to the tunnels even as they left the corpse of the copy Kitty on the streets for the authorities to find.

(Uncanny X-Men I#179 - BTS) - Even as the Morlocks prepared Kitty for her upcoming wedding, the fake Kitty was transferred to the local coroner's office where Storm, Wolverine and Rogue were brought in to identify the body. Using his enhanced senses, Wolverine quickly deduced the dead girl only looked like their teammate.

(Uncanny X-Men I#179) - Sunder attended the wedding ceremony of Kitty Pryde and Caliban, which was rudely interrupted several times. First when Kitty tried to run away and the second time by the arrival of Storm, Rogue and Wolverine. After a brief struggle, complicated by the power dampening Morlock Leech, Storm used her authority as leader to end all hostilities.

(Uncanny X-Men I#190 - BTS) - Sunder, along with almost everyone on Manhattan island, fell prey to Kulan Gath's master spell which transformed the modern metropolis into a Hyborean citystate ruled by Gath. To back up his rule, Gath recruited the Morlocks as his personal enforcers. The former sewer dwellers now roamed the streets and executed anyone who even slightly broke one of Kulan's laws. The guard was led by Captain Callisto, who relied on her right hand man Sunder. When Gath put out an arrest warrant for Lady Ororo, he and his men joined Callisto in boarding the ship she was staying on.

(Uncanny X-Men I#190) - Sunder interrupted lady Ororo's slumber by bursting through the doors of her bedroom. Introducing himself, he stepped aside to allow Callisto to make the arrest. Leading Ororo towards a smouldering fire, Callisto ordered Sunder to brand their prison with a white hot slave collar. Moving quickly, Ororo tossed Sunder aside, causing him to topple over the brazier which in turn set the wooden ship on fire.

   Escaping the sinking wreck unharmed, Sunder later joined Colossus and the New Mutants in chasing down Spider-Man, the only person Gath consciously kept unchanged. During the chase, they also faced a group of super powered rebels (in actuality Rogue, Nightcrawler and the Avengers Wasp, Starfox and Captain America). The fight was cut short when Sunder grabbed Spider-Man and a satisfied Gath teleported them back to his palace.

(Uncanny X-Men I#191) - Sunder and Gath's other thralls watched as the ancient wizard tortured his old foe Spider-Man. Afterwards, he punished Sunder and the New Mutants' leader Moonstar for having failed to capture the rebels by turning them to stone. After being returned to normal, Sunder suddenly remembered the rebels might be holed up inside the Morlock catacombs where they were safe from detection. Gath then ordered Sunder and the others to go and collect the rebels. After a series of intense fights, Sunder was killed by his former boss Callisto.

(Uncanny X-Men I#190-191) - The sorcerer Kulan Gath magically altered Manhattan and its inhabitants, including Sunder, to resemble Hyborian times and people, but this timeline was later diverged, so that 616 Sunder never experienced these events.

(Uncanny X-Men I#193 - BTS) - After the Marauder Scalphunter anonymously killed several of Annalee's children, Sunder was one of the Morlocks who found their bodies and returned them to the Alley.

(Uncanny X-Men I#193) - Sunder caught up with Callisto, just as Callisto was escorting Professor Xavier to the subterranean train heading for home (after the Morlock Healer had saved him following a potentially fatal beating). Holding the dead children in his arms, Sunder told Callisto what had happened. Understandably outraged, Callisto reminded Xavier this was the true reality mutants faced out there. She then promised that even though Storm's edict forced the Morlocks to co-exist peacefully with humanity, she was ready to start a race war if that's what humans wanted. 

(Power Pack I#12 - BTS) - The empathic Annalee experienced severe emotional distress because of the loss of her children. Her misery subconsciously started influencing the mood of her fellow Morlocks Ape, Erg, Tar Baby and the Piper. Feeling responsible for the kids' deaths, the band of Morlocks felt obligated to replace them. Following a chance encounter with Power Pack, they overpowered the young heroes, intending to give them to Annalee.

(Power Pack I#12) - Sunder was on hand when Kitty Pryde, Nightcrawler and Lockheed visited the Alley, carrying postcards from their leader Storm. Kitty also had a gift for Caliban, a sweater she'd bought for him on her recent adventure in Japan. Sunder and the others looked on as the overjoyed Caliban immediately put it on.

(Power Pack I#12 - BTS) - On their way home, Kitty, Lockheed and Nightcrawler ran into the Morlocks returning with Power Pack. After an intense struggle, the children were freed. Annalee and the others made the X-Men swear not to tell Callisto what they had done, fearing the repercussions. Despite promises to the contrary, Annalee kept stalking Power Pack even after they returned home.

(Uncanny X-Men I#193 - BTS) - Using her powers to influence dreams, the Morlock Beautiful Dreamer altered the memories of Professor Power, his wife and everyone in their apartment building, making them forget they even had children. At the same time, a number of Morlocks moved the kids' beds, clothes and personal belongings to Annalee's quarters in the tunnels. When the Powers woke up, they didn't recognize the young kids on their bed, which scared the prepubescent Power Pack to no end. When they found all their stuff was missing too, they ran off. Eventually realizing the Morlocks might be responsible, they ventured into the sewers where they were quickly overpowered. Brought before Masque who altered their physiques, only Katie Power managed to escape. The scared five-year-old eventually ran into the police and was captured. As luck would have it, Kitty Pryde spotted a newsreport on the incident and called in the X-Men to help the Power Pack member out. After freeing Katie from her room in Bellevue hospital, the mutants went down to the sewers where they found the other Powers children were already mentally conditioned into believing they actually were Annalee's offspring.

(Uncanny X-Men I#193) - Callisto and Sunder's appearance put an end to the situation. Callisto ordered Beautiful Dreamer and Masque to restore the Powers to children, while tasking Sunder with returning all their belongings before sunrise.

(Uncanny X-Men I#208) - Sunder watched while Kitty Pryde chewed out Wolverine for preventing their teammate Rachel Grey from killing the Black Queen (Selene Gallio) by stabbing her with his claws. He, Callisto and an unrevealed amount of other Morlocks then obeyed Storm's command they'd help the X-Men in finding Rachel.

(Uncanny X-Men I#211) - When the Marauders entered the Alley and began massacring Morlocks en masse, Sunder joined Callisto and the X-Men in opposing them.

(Uncanny X-Men I#211 - BTS) - During the fight against the Marauders, Sunder's legs sustained considerable injuries (possibly a result of Riptide's final round of shooting razor sharp throwing stars).

(Uncanny X-Men I#211) - Sunder soldiered on in spite of his injuries. He assisted the X-Men in loading as many wounded Morlocks as possible on the underground train bound for the team's Westchester headquarters.

(New Mutants I#46) - Moments after arriving at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, Sunder was overcome by his wounds and collapsed. Colossus had to support him until Moira MacTaggert could diagnose the extent of his injuries. Several hours later, Moira realized she couldn't save one of his legs. When she informed Sunder she'd have to amputate lest he'd bleed to death, he freaked out and went on a rampage. Sunder was so worked up, he easily broke free from Magneto's hastily constructed metal restraints. The New Mutant Karma was quickly called in to possess and calm him, but she was unable to handle the Morlock's intense pain and had to let go. In the end, Psylocke stepped in, blanking Sunder's mind and absorbing the totality of his pain. This allowed MacTaggert to perform the operation, saving Sunder's life (see comments).

(Uncanny X-Men I#213 - BTS) - Following an attack by Sabretooth on the X-Men's mansion, Callisto and Storm decided the safest place for Sunder and the other injured Morlocks would be Moira MacTaggert's mutant research center on Muir Island. Using the Blackbird as a ferry service, the X-Men started transporting the wounded.

(Uncanny X-Men I#216 - BTS) - While on Muir Island, Sunder continued his recuperation, even as a fair number of his fellow Morlocks tragically succumbed to their injuries. During that time, Callisto, Dazzler, Longshot and Rogue arrived with the last of the evacuees.

(New Mutants I#51 - BTS) - Using a psi-probe to merge his consciousness with that of the New Mutants, Charles Xavier gained access to their minds. Reliving their most recent memories, Xavier was shocked to learn of the Marauders' attack on the Morlocks and Sunder's wounds.

(Uncanny X-Men I#217 - BTS) - Sunder remained confined to his hospital bed on Muir Island. Of all the injured Morlocks treated there, their former leader Callisto was the only ambulatory patient.

(Uncanny X-Men I#254 - BTS) - After an unrevealed period of rehabilitation, Sunder made an apparent full recovery. He remained on Muir Island where he befriended staff members like Sean Cassidy, Tom Corsi and Sharon Friedlander. He was also friendly with visiting X-Men allies such as Lorna Dane, Amanda Sefton and Alyssande Stuart. He had a special fondness for Moira MacTaggert's other wards Legion (David Haller) and the Warpies.

(Uncanny X-Men I#254) - Sunder was visiting with Legion and the Warpies when the Reavers attacked Muir Island looking for the X-Men. The nursery was penetrated by Bonebreaker, Skullbuster and Pretty Boy who blasted through the wall and immediately opened fire. Sunder immediately shielded the children with his body and was aided by Legion, who erected a psionic forcefield to protect everyone. Sunder directed the Warpies to head for the bunker while he turned to face the Reavers. However, Legion (presumably influenced by the Shadow King) sadistically dropped the shield around Sunder, allowing the Reavers to blast him. Bonebreaker was about to deliver the killing shot when Tom Corsi and Polaris arrived to chase the cyborgs off.

(Uncanny X-Men I#254 - BTS) - Sunder recovered quickly and went out to look for the Reavers on his own, eager to have his revenge. He eventually encountered Skullbuster and literally proceeded to pound him into the ground (see comments).

(Uncanny X-Men I#254) - Sunder was happily pounding away at his cyborg assailant, when he was suddenly shot in the back by Pretty Boy who used a massive energyblaster to kill the Morlock with one blast. Sunder's dead form fell on top of Skullbuster, who urged his fellow Reavers to free him before Sunder's weight finished what his fists started. Elated by their victory, the Reavers left Sunder's corpse behind as they continued their assault (see commments).

(Weapon X II#10 - BTS) - Years after the Morlock massacre, the director of Weapon X reviewed footage of the incident with his field agent Marrow. On the screen were archival images of prominent Morlocks like Callisto, Caliban, Masque and Sunder.


(Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey#4 - BTS) - When the Phoenix Force returned to Earth to once again try and merge with Jean Grey, it trapped her in an imaginary world where the Phoenix Force had created several constructs of deceased X-Men, amongst them Sunder. Dressed in red X-Men costumes the constructs fought the real X-Men until a small squad successfully reached Jean upon which the constructs disappeared.

Comments: Created by Chris Claremont (writer), Paul Smith (pencils), Bob Wiacek (inks).

Talk about a senseless death... While Sunder was never that important a player (he barely had over 20 lines of dialogue altogether), he was one of the more recognizable characters among the Morlocks. His likeness was even the model the bruiser type Morlocks appearing in the X-Men: Legends videogames were based on. To kill off a survivor of the Mutant Massacre for shock value was a little disappointing. 

It's hard to precisely determine Sunder's affiliations among the Morlocks. Considering he was part of Callisto's inner circle, one can assume most of the Morlocks knew who he was, even if Sunder himself might only have been vaguely aware of them.

The polymer cable was intended for Colossus. However, once the X-Men were chained, the art clearly showed Piotr Rasputin was being restrained by conventional chains. Storm and Nightcrawler were the ones being tied with the allegedly unbreakable material.

Though unconfirmed, it stands to reason the man later known as Sunder picked his Morlock name because his enhanced strength made it easy for him to rip things asunder. As for Sunder's looks... It's not clear if Masque altered Sunder's face too, seeing as the whole 'join the Morlocks, get a forced but free makeover' rule was obviously instated after they founded the group. It's possible Sunder, Callisto and the other founders underwent the procedure after the fact to show their support of the regulation.

Sunder lost one of his legs in New Mutants I#46, though in his next (and seemingly final) appearance in Uncanny X-Men I#254 he showed no sign of missing a limb, nor did he exhibit even the slightest of limps. His lost appendage might have been replaced by an advanced prosthesis. Maybe Sunder could have an unrevealed, slow acting healing factor or maybe the Morlock Healer eventually helped restore him to normal.

While he was pounding on Skullbuster, Sunder mentioned that his "armored suit" prevented any serious damage. An interesting statement, considering he was only wearing a wifebeater at the time. Sunder's entry in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Master Edition#3 stresses that "he wore a specially designed X-Man uniform consisting of light body armor" during his battle with the Reavers. 

Still, it was probably just a scripting error on Claremont's part. On that same page, he has Skullbuster utter the line "How about hauling this lump off me before his weight finishes what his bullets started", while it's obvious Sunder had only been using his fists. Must have been the stress of the bi-weekly schedule the book was on at the time.

But, did Sunder really die in Uncanny X-Men I#254? That's the official Marvel line, however someone who looks an awful, awful lot like our poor bald Morlock bruiser appeared several years later, alive and well, in Uncanny X-Men I#278. The Sunder lookalike is seen cheering on the Shadow King-possessed Rogue and Strong Guy as they duke it out in the Muir Island arena... he even appears on the cover. While this is probably just a simple miscommunication between Claremont, editor Bob Harras and guest artist Paul Smith (who co-created the character)... I'd like to offer the notion that Sunder did indeed die back in
Uncanny X-Men I#254, but was taken over by the Shadow King in much the same way he took over the deceased form of Jacob Reisz. The King has shown the ability to control multiple people at once, so adding Sunder wouldn't have been a problem. Moira and her Islanders weren't there when he was killed, so no one would be the wiser. And, just to tie up any loose ends, Sunder's corpse might have been incinerated when the King-controlled Legion blasted Muir with an onslaught of psychokinetic energy at the end of X-Factor I#69.

We wondered ourselves if perhaps Sunder's death had been misreported. After all, the lookalike appears in no less than three panels and isn't just slightly similar - he's a dead (no pun) ringer, though no one ever calls him by name. Sunder was very strong, and was said to have been wearing an armored costume when shot (though they used armor piercing bullets). Plus the Morlocks had someone who could heal far more severe injuries than gunshot wounds, and Sunder was shot while in a medical facility. With this evidence, we asked editorial if perhaps Sunder had survived, and were told "no, it is an art error." So the official word is - died in UXM I#254, not present in UXM I#278.

Sunder, either solo or as part of the Morlocks, was profiled in The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe I#7, Deluxe Edition#12, Master Edition#3 and Marvel Encyclopedia#1: X-Men. Sunder's real name was revealed in Marvel Atlas#2's entry on the United Kingdom (under superhuman residents).

Profile by Norvo.

Sunder should not be confused with

Sunder's polymer cable

During their first meeting with the X-Men, the Morlocks managed to get the mutant heroes to surrender. Looking for a way to restrain them, an unidentified Morlock retrieved a special kind of polymer cable that was so tough even Sunder's impressive strength was unable to break it. The cable, along with convential chains, were then used to tie the team to poles in the heart of the Alley.
