(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.
