History: (X-Statix I#1) - When the celebrity mutant team X-Statix visited their Nevada farm team training facility, they found Nightvoid and Mutalien sparring against the unstable Corkscrew. After witnessing Corkscrew kick Mutalien in the face, Nightvoid charged at Corkscrew, who easily leapt over Nightvoid's attack. When Corkscrew began spiraling his liquid metal arm into a drill shape towards the downed Nightvoid, X-Statix's Mister Sensitive tried to call off Corkscrew, reminding him that the idea wasn't to kill one another. Before Mister Sensitive could finish his sentence, however, the raging, mentally unbalanced Corkscrew plunged his drill hand into Nightvoid, killing the mutant in a large splash of blood. As Nightvoid's corpse was taken away by some of the X-Statix crew, X-Statix team owner Spike Freeman informed X-Statix's Anarchist, Doop and Mister Sensitive that the official report of Nightvoid's death would be that he died bravely during a covert operation since the public tended to get queasy over training ground deaths. Freeman then continued, stating that Corkscrew's instability matched the profile for Code X, meaning that his mutant powers had made him mentally unstable, and promising that Doop would take care of it.

Comments: Created by Peter Milligan and Michael Allred.

Nightvoid's height and weight were impossible to approximate, as he was never seen close enough to another character whose height and weight had been officially determined.

Poor Nightvoid, dying without any revelation as to his powers or even name. It wasn't until the X-Statix entry in Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z HC Vol. 13 (2010) that Nightvoid received his codename and real name.
