First Appearance: X-Factor III#12 (December,
(X-Factor III#12 (fb) - BTS) - Using magic in conjunction with his own
mutant powers, Earth-616's Damian Tryp became effectively immortal but
over time, his mutant powers evolved, tying him to the planet itself
and causing multiple aspects of himself to exist at all points of his
lifeline, past, present and potential future. In the past and present,
Tryp's body appeared normal due to time having caught up to those
events but the counterparts to Tryp that existed in his potential
futures appeared unstable due to time's ever-changing nature. On one
such potential future (which later diverged into Earth-6124), X-Factor
Investigations learned the truth of the mutant decimation known as
M-Day and was instrumental in restoring the powers to Earth's mutants.
Since X-Factor succeeded where the X-Men had not, X-Factor became
celebrated amongst Earth's mutants. Unbeknownst to X-Factor at the
time, the restoration of mutants ended up causing humanity to be wiped
out, nearly to extinction. Over time, the Damian Tryp counterpart that
existed in this reality was kept in the potential future of Earth-6124
by machinery tended to by a small band of his supporters.
(X-Factor III#12 (fb)) - With mutants now the
majority species on Earth, many mutants became drunk with power
and insane. Glorying in their powers, they began killing the few
remaining normal humans left on the planet despite being warned
against such actions by the elderly mutant Damian Tryp. Eventually,
X-Factor Unit 27 opted to kill Tryp and broke into his sanctuary.
Breathing fire on many of Tryp's supporters, the mutants in X-Factor
Unit 27 soon found that Tryp did not even have a solid physical form
and destroyed his temporal machinery, causing Tryp to disappear from
Earth-6124. Announcing that he had already seen the future of mankind,
Tryp explained that it was not desirable or pleasant. Tryp then
explained that he would also no longer be a part of Earth-6124's future
before revealing that he was trapped between states of existence due to
the sheer amount of mutants on Earth-6124. As he disappeared from
Earth-6124, Tryp proclaimed that X-Factor was to blame for their being
so many mutants before his sanctuary caught on fire. With Tryp gone,
X-Factor Unit 27 reported back that Tryp had been located and was
(X-Factor III#12 (fb) - BTS) - No longer temporally
connected to Earth-6124, the aged Damian Tryp appeared on Earth-616,
where he set himself up as Damian Tryp, Sr. and began attempts at
manipulating events on Earth-616 to prevent the events from his own
reality from occurring.
(X-Factor III#12) - Decades later, having advised his
own younger Earth-616 counterparts within Singularity Investigations,
"Damian Tryp, Sr." met with Jamie Madrox and his X-Factor
Investigations group, hoping to warn them against restoring the powers
of the mutants who had lost their abilities during M-Day. When X-Factor
Investigations remained skeptical of his words, Damian unleashed a
mental blast intended to hit M and give her a glimpse of the future of
Earth-6124. When the blast passed through M and hit Madrox, Jamie
Madrox's mind was briefly transported to Earth-6124's future, where
Jamie witnessed a world overrun by mutants, who had conquered humanity
and begun fighting amongst themselves for control of the planet. As
Madrox viewed Earth-6124, Damian Tryp's 616 counterpart informed Madrox
of how the world had come to that point and explained that his allies
were developing a virus on Earth-616 that would kill the depowered
mutants to prevent them from regaining their abilities and
inadvertently causing Earth-6124's events to occur on Earth-616. Tryp
also warned that he was also prepared to kill X-Factor Investigations,
if necessary to prevent Earth-6124's future from coming to pass.
Comments: Created by Peter David, Renato Arlem and Roy Allen Martinez.
The divergent point of Earth-6124 occurred at the moment that X-Factor Investigations repowered the depowered mutants.
The timeline for Earth-6124's Damian Tryp (and well, Damian Tryp-616
as well) is a bit muddy to say the least, as one might expect from a
guy who exists at all points of his own timeline, including potential
futures. As such, I chose to list Tryp's earliest known activity on
Earth-616 (which Jamie Madrox later recalled from a dupe was Tryp's
killing of his parents in X-Factor III#12) as the BTS flashback moment
when he arrived on Earth-616 from Earth-6124. Rather than limit Damian
Tryp-6124 to subprofile, I believe he is better suited for his own
profile. With that in mind, I focused this profile on the alternate
Earth-6124 itself and not on Damian Tryp's actions.

Earth-6124 has no known connection to
X-Factor Unit 27
X-Factor Unit 27 was a squad of mutants active on Earth-6124. Ultimately deciding to kill the Damian Tryp of their reality, X-Factor Unit 27 located Tryp and destroyed the temporal machinery that maintained Tryp's counterpart of Earth-6124. Thinking they had killed Tryp, X-Factor Unit 27 reported Tryp's supposed termination.
The mutants that made Unit 27 were not identified but the female of the group was capable of breathing fire.
