(Uncanny X-Men I#350 (fb) / X-Men Origins: Gambit - BTS) - Mr. Sinister hired Gambit to assemble a group of mercenaries to break into an impenetrable community, in exchange for this Sinister had performed an operation on the mutant so he could control his abilities again. Gambit travelled to all corners of the world to find all kind of mercenaries; amongst them Prism, who agreed to join the Marauders.

(Uncanny X-Men I#215 - BTS) - Mr. Sinister tasked several of his Marauders to kill Madelyne Pryor and kidnap her baby. Sinister had created Pryor as a clone from Jean Grey. Dressed as ambulance personnel Arclight and Scalphunter were on hand at San Francisco's International Airport where Madelyne Pryor crash landed the cargo. After they took Pryor aboard the van she suddenly realized she was missing her baby, causing her to panic and hit Arclight in the face. Pryor busted the doors of the ambulance and tried to flee with the Marauders hot on her tail.

(X-Factor I#38 (fb) ) - Prism and Harpoon joined the hunt for Pryor.

(Uncanny X-Men I#215 - BTS) - Once the Marauders found Pryor it was Scalphunter who shot her, believing she was dead they returned to Sinister with the baby. Pryor, however survived the shot and wound up in San Francisco's general hospital.

(Uncanny X-Men I#350 (fb) / X-Men Origins: Gambit) - Gambit, still not fully realizing what the Marauders were about to do, led them into the Morlock tunnels. But when Sabretooth killed the first Morlock they came across Gambit was shocked and asked Scalphunter why they'd come to the tunnels. Scalphunter told the cajun he'd done what he was hired to do. Realizing what they intended to do Gambit tried to stop the Marauders but once Vertigo weakened him Sabretooth grabbed Gambit by the throat and gutted the cajun leaving him for dead while the Marauders moved on.

(X-Factor I#10) - The full team of Marauders reached the huge central shaft of the tunnels called the Alley, where most of the Morlocks lived. There, the assassins struck the mutant community at it's hardest. Seeing their friends killed by the Marauders caused chaos and upheaval, causing Morlocks to flee into several smaller tunnels. Arclight accompanied by Scrambler and Prism located X-Factor, who still tried to return to their headquarters with several of the surviving Morlocks. During their assault, Scrambler was too eager to attack and was stunned while taking out Beast. Prism was able to defeat Cyclops, but then Angel and Jean Grey arrived. To save her friends, the telekinetic Jean smashed Prism into a wall, shattering his crystalline body and killing him.

(Uncanny X-Men I#240 - BTS) - Mr. Sinister successfully cloned Blockbuster, Riptide and Prism, who themselves were aware of their true nature.

(Uncanny X-Men I#240 (fb) - BTS) - Mr. Sinister ordered his Marauders to relocate to the former Morlock Alley.

(Uncanny X-Men I#240 - BTS) - The advanced computer system in the X-Men's outback headquarters suddenly picked up the location of the Marauders (thanks to N'astirh's involvement). Eager for some payback and outraged their foes were hiding in the Alley of all places, the X-Men decided to ambush them.

(Uncanny X-Men I#240) - The Marauders were still moving into the Alley, wondering why they were even ordered to move there, when the X-Men attacked. Blockbuster was carrying one of the crates on his back when he bumped into Colossus who politely checked if he was indeed dealing with a Marauder before he smashed him right across the tunnel to announce the X-Men's presence. Sabretooth smelled Dazzler and was about to gut her when she blinded him with a powerful burst of light. She then shot Scalphunter. Havok in turn used his plasma beam on Prism, whose body amplified the energy causing him to overload and shoot out energy bolts in all directions. Riptide tried fighting back by unleashing a barrage of razor sharp throwing stars, but they were all caught by Longshot who courteously threw 'em back. Scrambler realized the X-Men were out for blood even as the team's methodical attack continued. Malice then magnetically took control of Colossus' organic steel form, using him to slam a hole in the ceiling all the way up to street level. The Marauders tried to get away, only to find themselves in a Manhattan transformed into a demonic parody of itself.

(Uncanny X-Men I#241) - The X-Men, slowly corrupted by the Inferno's evil effects, fought the Marauders in downtown Manhattan. Storm whipped up a powerful hurricane to distract the Marauders, while Colossus was shocked to see Riptide was somehow alive and well. Before there could be a round two, they were attacked by several transmogrified policemen riding metallic demon beasts. Malice magnetically shredded the beasts and pelted the X-Men with the razor sharp shrapnel. This cleared the way for Vertigo to get in place and turn the X-Men's world upside down. Vertigo's dizzying attack was stopped by Longshot who threw one of his knives at the villain. Worried that innocent bystanders could get hurt, Storm ordered Psylocke to telepathically take all of the Marauders out. But as soon as Betsy Braddock focused her mental powers, she was overcome by plight of the innocent babies that were used to power the pentagram over New York that facilitated the demonic invasion. Figuring this was the time to strike back, Malice ordered the Marauders to combine their attacks on Psylocke, though the X-Men did their best to keep the telepath safe. Their fight was once again interrupted when a Limbo-tainted group of mutant haters called the Right showed up. Using their flying combat armors for a strafing run, they unleashed a rain of fire on the Marauders that killed Prism.

(X-Man I#13 (fb) - BTS) - When Mr. Sinister learned his accomplice Threnody tried to escape, he sent the full force of the Marauders after her. The Marauders followed Threnody to Paris, where she'd gone to find X-Man (Nate Grey).

(X-Man I#13) - Prism and the Marauders pursued Threnody through the tunnels of Paris until Nate Grey intervened when he picked up the girl's frantic thoughts. When Prism mentioned Sinister, Grey was reminded of Earth-295's Sinister who had killed most everyone he cared for. Furious and ready to fight, he telekinetically hurled Blockbuster through the tunnels. The Marauders got in attack formation to counter Grey and Scrambler successfully disrupted the hero's power, causing a giant explosion in the tunnels which ended up killing Scrambler. Threnody used the opportunity to get Grey to safety while the Marauders were still scrambling. Prism used his abilities to light up the dark tunnels, leading the Marauders towards their prey unaware Grey and Threnody prepared a trap for the villains. Once the Marauders arrived near Grey, he used his telekinesis to force Scalphunter's hand, shooting Riptide in the shoulder and landing a piercing shot against Prism, causing the Marauder to explode.

(Generation M#3 - BTS) - Prism ended up a prisoner in the Ravencroft Asylum for the Criminally Insane alongside lots of mutants.

(Generation M#3) - After the massive de-powering event that became known as M-Day there was a drastic power shift inside the asylum as the few remaining mutants placed themselves in positions of powers. During one day, Front Line reporter Sally Floyd visited the asylum and witnessed how Prism murdered fellow inmate Nelson Cragg for an offense against him.

(X-Men II#200 - BTS) - Through unrevealed ways, Sinister learned that for the first time since the Scarlet Witch's reality altering spell wiped out the mutant gene, a new mutant was going to be born. Dubbing the newborn the "Messiah Child", he intended to seize it and reassembled his Marauders.

(X-Men II#204 (fb) - BTS) - Next to the original Marauders, Sinister also contacted the supremely powerful mutant Exodus, convincing him to join forces so he could help rebirth the mutant race. The zealous Exodus agreed and gathered several mutants to join Sinister's Marauders, including Frenzy, Random, Tempo and Unuscione.

(X-Men II#200 - BTS) - To make sure he alone would know when and where the Messiah Child was born, Sinister targeted three specific groups: psychics and precogs, time travellers with direct knowledge of the future like Cable and objects like the Destiny Diaries. Sinister figured that eliminating all of them would ensure his success. He sent Prism and the other Marauders out on numerous hit jobs.

(X-Men II#200 (fb) - BTS) - When the X-Men were staying at Mystique's house in Caldecott County, Mississippi, the Marauders gathered nearby. Lady Mastermind used her abilities to create a null zone so the X-Men could not sense their presence.

(X-Men II#200) - Back in Mississippi, Emma Frost was trying to mend Rogue's fractured mind (as a result of her fight against the Hecatomb) when she suddenly sensed the Marauders' presence. Before she could warn the others, she was stunned by the Omega Sentinel who was now fully controlled by Malice. Seconds later, both Beast and Wolverine picked up the Marauders' scents and quickly ordered Iceman to "ice up". Just then, Lady Mastermind dropped her illusion to reveal the full force of the Marauders were already inside. Still not realizing Omega Sentinel had been possessed, Cyclops tried to shield her from the Marauders attack only to be taken out by Malice herself. Scalphunter successfully injured Iceman by driving a spear through his midriff. Hearing the shooting from her room Rogue activated her powers and flew down to stand beside her fellow X-Men. Prism fought Rogue after which Scalphunter tried to shoot her but was taken out by Mystique, declaring that no one was allowed to shoot her daughter...except her. She then fired a round at Rogue's chest, revealing her alliance to the Marauders.

(X-Men II#201) - The Marauders had dealt a devastating blow to the X-Men, leaving only Cyclops, Wolverine, Beast and Cannonball to deal with them. Unable to sustain his ice-form, Iceman tried to get Rogue to safety but was stopped by Mystique. While the other X-Men fought the Marauders, an immobilized Emma Frost used her telepathic abilities to reach out to Cannonball. She explained what she'd learned about the Marauders' goals, targets and plans before taking over Sam's mind and causing him to rocket off with Iceman. Moments later, the Marauders successfully defeated the remaining X-Men. Seemingly asserting herself as their leader, Mystique ordered the Marauders to pull back after which Arclight used her abilities to bring the house down on the X-Men. The Marauders planned to return to Sinister taking Rogue along, since she carried the content of Destiny's diaries in her mind.

(X-Men II#203 - BTS) - Through the use of Cerebro, Sinister learned the Destiny Diaries were located somewhere in an old industrial park in Flint, Michigan. Sinister sent his Marauders to retrieve the books.

(X-Men II#203) - The Marauders spotted the Blackbird as soon as they arrived at the Michigan site, which told them Cannonball and Iceman were already there. They proceeded to free their teammate Sunfire and then split the group in two. The original Marauders plus Sunfire and Mystique, Gambit, Lady Mastermind and Malice would sweep the park and attack the X-Men from two sides. They were unaware Cannonball and Iceman were well aware of their presence and had planned to face them head on. Cannonball came crashing through the floorboards, grabbing Riptide and dumping him on the second group of Marauders. The X-Men continued their assault by destroying several huge water towers, dousing the first group of Marauders so Iceman could flash freeze them in place. The X-Men managed to find the capsule containing the Destiny Diaries but when they tried to depart with it, Mr. Sinister showed up, knocking them over. Sinister was joined by his Marauders who he ordered to grab the diaries. But the diaries were accidentally destroyed by Gambit and Scalphunter who tried to shoot Cannonball. Enraged by the diaries' destruction Sinister planned to vent his frustration by erasing Cannonball's mind. This plan was accidentally foiled by Scrambler who wanted to disrupt Iceman's powers so Bobby would still die from the chest wound he suffered earlier. However, Iceman used his last energy to shove Scrambler against Sinister, preventing him from erasing Sam's mind. This left Cannonball free to use his powers to escape, while Iceman dove into the water.

(X-Men II#204) - Prism and several other Marauders watched as Mr. Sinister tried to probe Rogue's fractured mind in an attempt to find her consciousness among the eight billion minds she absorbed during the X-Men's fight against the Hecatomb. When his efforts proved futile, Sinister doubted if keeping Rogue alive was not a waste of time, prompting Mystique to mention she still held the full text of the Destiny Diaries in her mind.

(Deadpool & Cable#25 (fb) ) - On the eve of the birth of the Messiah Child, a small team of Marauders (Prism, Scalphunter, Malice, Lady Mastermind, Sunfire and Gambit) arrived in Cooperstown, Alaska to claim the child. However, despite Sinister's best efforts to root out the competition, the mutant hating Purifiers were also present. Gambit ordered the Marauders to take the baby after which they came across Deadpool who was aiding Cable (who'd already located the baby). Prism watched as Scalphunter ripped Deadpool's throat out.

(X-Men: Messiah Complex#1 (fb) ) - Now joined by Blockbuster the Marauder started killing the Purifiers, clearly enjoying using their superhuman powers. Prism and Gambit then set out to search the town for the baby but were caught in a giant explosion in the town's center. The giant explosion was caused by Cable who'd come to locate the child and keep her safe.

(X-Men: Messiah Complex#1) - The X-Men, also unaware of what had happened in Cooperstown, arrived, only to find destruction and evidence of the Marauders' involvement. As such they found Blockbuster and Prism's corpses. When the X-Men left the mutant hunting Predator X arrive in Cooperstown, drawn by the smell of mutants. The predator most likely ate Prism's corpse.

(X-Men: Legacy I#221-222 - BTS) - Rogue was immersed in Danger's holographic projections. This also led to the creation of Marauders simulations that hunted Rogue in a scenario reminiscent of the Morlock Massacre. In this scenario Rogue defeated Blockbuster after which she forced the massive Marauder to fall on top of Prism.

(Heroic Age: X-Men - BTS) - As the new head of S.H.I.E.L.D., Steve Rogers assessed the entire, known, mutant community. In his report, he analyzed the Marauders and stated that each and every single one of them were "butchers" that had to be found and apprehended before they could kill again.

(Astonishing X-Men III#52 (fb) - BTS / Astonishing X-Men III#48 - BTS) - Susan Hatchi (Da'o Coy Manh) secretly infected her sister Karma with experimental nanotech allowing her to command her sister's powers. Unaware she was doing so, Karma took control of Chimera, the Vanisher and had them join a group of Marauders (Arclight, Prism, Harpoon, Blockbuster) who she planned to send against the X-Men.

(Astonishing X-Men III#48) - The Marauders, joined by the Vanisher and Chimera, ambushed the X-Men in New York City.

(Astonishing X-Men III#49) - While Chimera used her psionic dragons to attack Northstar and Iceman, Prism blinded the other X-Men. Harpoon succeeded in severely injuring Wolverine by plunging a spear through his stomach. Arclight used a metal whip to fight Gambit. The tide turned when Karma tried to invade Chimera's mind, thereby breaking Susan Hatchi's influence on her. Realizing she had been used, Chimera tried to convince the Marauders they were also being controlled. Believing Karma was actually controlling Chimera, the Marauders was turned against her until she once again unleashed her psionic dragons to push the Marauders back after which Vanisher teleported them away. Chimera stayed behind to explain to the X-Men what had happened.

(Astonishing X-Men III#50 - BTS) - Prism and the group of Marauders hid in an abandoned building in Brooklyn's Red Hook.

(Astonishing X-Men III#50 (fb) - BTS) - Wanting to rid herself of the evidence Hatchi once again took possession of the Marauders and had them kill each other. However, Blockbuster managed to break free of the mind control and escaped, crying.

(Astonishing X-Men III#50) - Just as the X-Men arrived at Red Hook searching for the Marauders they saw their corpses.

(Magneto III#5 - BTS) - Briar Raleigh sought out Magneto in hopes of arranging a partnership. She possessed intelligence that would be of use to him, including the current whereabouts of the Marauders, as well as information on how to hurt them. Eager to strike back against mutants who murdered their own kind for money, Magneto accepted.

(Magneto III#6 (fb) - BTS) - Magneto sought out one cell of Marauders and killed them, thus activating another cell of Marauder clones. He then went after a second and third cell. During the third raid, Magneto discovered he could use ferro fluid (ferromagnetic particles suspended in a carrier liquid) to slip past their defenses.

(Magneto III#6 (fb) - BTS) - Magneto located the fourth cell of Marauders (Scalphunter, Prism, Scrambler, Blockbuster, Riptide, Arclight, Harpoon) and attacked them, eagerly wanting to punish them for their crimes against mutantkind. Magneto cut off Scalphunter's arms and legs. Aware that dying Marauders could regenerate themselves, Magneto quickly cauterized the wounds so the missing limbs wouldn't grow back. He then assured a scared Scalphunter that he wasn't done with him, in fact...he had further plans in store for him, adding "though not in this life".

(Magneto III#6 (fb) ) - Prism and Scrambler tried to flee Magneto, but just as they felt safe Prism was stabbed through the chest with a magnetically controlled metal shard. Next, Magneto used his powers to spread the metal, shattering Prism's body, killing him. Shocked by Prism's death, Scrambler threatened to short-circuit Magneto's brain. Amused by the idle threat, Magneto noted he wouldn't even need to touch him and, to prove his point, killed the Marauder. The others heard Scrambler's death howl and knew another one of them had fallen prey to Magneto. Riptide opted for the group to escape while they could but Harpoon suggested they ambushed and killed the mutant master of magnetism. Harpoon had realized they'd only been activated because Magneto had killed another cell of Marauders. And although another Harpoon clone would always live, he was irked by the fact it wouldn't be him. The four Marauders prepared for the coming fight but were shocked when a giant construction crane came swooping down on Harpoon. It hit him in the face, breaking his neck and killing him. Magneto then fired Harpoon's spears to slaughter Riptide after which he used two balls filled with ferro fluid to kill Arclight and Blockbuster.

(Magneto III#6 (fb) - BTS) - The mutilated Scalphunter was found by S.H.I.E.L.D. who brought him to a hospital.

(Magneto III#6) - While in the hospital, Scalphunter was interrogated by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Haines and Rodriguez who learned what had transpired. At the same time Magneto had caught up with another batch of Marauders before they could be activated. He then activated a special program, designed by himself and Raleigh, that consisted of a behavior modification sequence for the various cloning baths. This ensured that any future Marauders would be loyal to Magneto and his cause.

(Magneto III#15) - For their first mission loyal to their new master, the Marauders (Arclight, Blockbuster, Harpoon, Prism, Riptide, Sabretooth, Scalphunter and Scrambler) dressed in all-new black costumes and were sent out to rescue Magneto from S.H.I.E.L.D. custody. The Marauders were meant to frighten the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents creating enough chaos to cover Magneto's escape but when he reached the top of the Helicarrier he saw how the Marauders had killed a great number of loyal S.H.I.E.L.D agents. He prevented Sabretooth from killing agent Hines. In the end, Magneto hurled the clone into the Helicarrier propellor, figuring the mutant's innate healing factor made him a problem to control from the word go. Magneto, Raleigh and the Marauders then left for Genosha.

(Magneto III#16 - BTS) - Although Magneto tried to recreate a safe haven on the island of Genosha the island was riddled with a series of murders. Both the Marauders and Magneto were unaware the killings were caused by Herr Hitzig, or rather a construct accidentally created by Genoshan mutant Amy, whose powers allowed her to create imaginary constructs in reality.

(Magneto III#17) - Prism was seen alongside Scalphunter, searching Genosha for the killer. That night Magneto faced the Herr Hitzig construct.


(X-Force VI#1 - BTS) - Prism was one of many who accepted the invitation to live on the sovereign mutant island nation of Krakoa, ruled by the Quiet Council.

(X-Force VI#1) - Prism was present when the mysterious anti-mutant cabal XENO attacked Krakoa, assassinating dozens of mutants and even Charles Xavier. Prism was one of many mutants miles by the mercenaries.

(Hellion I#2 - BTS) - Scalphunter repeatedly visited Professor X to ask after his former teammates. However, bringing the original Marauders to Krakoa was rather problematic as the current iteration were clones of clones, most likely suffering from generation loss and genetic corruption. Professor X reasoned that even the Marauders deserved to be the most natural version of themselves. As such the Quiet Council decided Sinister's clone farm was to be dismantled so they would know if they were dealing with the last of the line to assess the Marauders' genetic integrity and discern if the group could be properly resurrected by the Five.

(Hellions I#1 - BTS) - Madelyne Pryor, former adversary of the Marauders had secretly taken control of Mister Sinister's clone farm planning to take control of the many Marauder clones to build an army and ravage Krakoa.

(Hellions I#1) - Madelyne Pryor activated the clones of Arclight, Blockbuster, Harpoon, Prism, Riptide and Scrambler but corrupted them, taking away their free will turning them into flesh-eating versions of themselves.

(Hellions I#2) - Witnessing the arrival of Scalphunter and the Hellions in the clone farm, Pryor activated the corrupted Marauders. Seeing her friend, Arclight tried to fight Pryor's influence but was unable after which Pryor revealed her presence to the Krakoans. Ordering her Marauders to attack them they easily gained the upper hand. But when Prism was about to kill Havok, Pryor stepped in and destroyed Prism. While Pryor took Alex away the Marauders continued their assault, easily defeating Nanny, Orphan-Maker and Scalphunter.

(Hellions I#3) - Madelyne Pryor showed Havok the cloning baths were an uncountable group of Marauders (including Prisms) were stored and revealed she planned to birth all of the Marauders at once and flood the Krakoan gates. Meanwhile the remaining corrupted Marauders continued their assault on the Hellions.

(Hellions I#4) - As Pryor was bringing the entire Marauder clone farm online her influence was spread thin as the corrupted Marauders started to regain their minds. In the end it was Scalphunter who shot and killed Pryor after which Havok destroyed the clone farm, destroying the many clones of Prism.

(Hellions I#4 - BTS) - Although a weight had been lifted off of Scalphunter he worried over the resurrection of his former teammates. He agreed they should be returned with as few of Mr. Sinister's genetic modifications as feasible, but aside from that refuses to help them assimilate if and when they'll be resurrected, feeling it's better for everyone if they each go their separate ways. Not long after the Marauders were approved for resurrection by the Quiet Council.
