Powers/Abilities: Scalphunter can re-assemble mechanical components into a variety of different configurations by modifying their shape and construction. He wears a costume covered with weapon modules to allow him to rapidly create almost any form of conventional weaponry and accompanying ammunition. He is an uncanny marksman, a formidable hand-to-hand combatant, an experienced pilot, and an extraordinary master of conventional weaponry including pistols, rifles, uzis, shotguns, laser guns, miniature cannons, flamethrowers, knives and grenade launchers. His regenerative abilities allowed him to regrow lost limbs or even revive from seeming death. It also apparently retarded his aging to an unspecified degree. Scalphunter also build an airplane from scratch using his technoformation power which he then named the Dirty Bird.

Height: 6'6"
Weight: 175 lbs.

(X-Men: The 198 Files - BTS) - John Greycrow is Native American.

(X-Men Divided We Stand#1/5 (fb) - BTS) - Greycrow's mother would make them Migas for dinner, something he considered to be the original cuisine of the dirt-eating poor.

(X-Men Divided We Stand#1/5 (fb) - BTS) - Greycrow's father died of lung cancer.

(Weapon X II#14) - John Greycrow served as a soldier in the United States Army during World War II. At one point, he was even part of Nick Fury's squad. Under unrevealed circumstances Greycrow went rogue on a mission in France in 1944. He turned against his fellow soldiers and wound up murdering and scalping eight officers.

(Weapon X II#14) - Greycrow was caught and tried for his crimes. Found guilty, he was tied to a pole and awaited the firing squad while Nick Fury and another officer explained why he would be executed. When asked if he had any last words he spat in the officer's face laughing, Fury immediately wanted to hit Greycrow in the face but was stopped as he was going to be killed anyway. Upon giving the order the firing squad carried out the sentence. Seemingly dead, Greycrow's body was put in a bodybag and buried.

(Weapon X II#14) - Later that night, Greycrow's mutant regenerative powers had kicked in postmortem. Restored and resurrected, he crawled out of his grave to find geneticist Dr. Nathaniel Essex waiting for him. Essex helped him out of his grave and explained he knew all about Greycrow and his abilities and how he could put them to good use.

(Weapon X II#14) - Entering a partnership, Greycrow followed Essex to Germany where they could move and work freely under the Nazi regime. Greycrow would regularly assist Essex by "rescuing" groups of Jewish people from being deported to concentration camps. Believing themselves saved by a good-hearted man they were unaware they would wind up dissected and experimented on. Essex was using a DNA sample from Namor the Sub-Mariner he had acquired years earlier to create a clone of the Sub-Mariner he called N2.

(Weapon X II#14) - Essex's laboratories came under attack by the Invaders (Captain America, Human Torch and the Sub-Mariner). Greycrow quickly alarmed Essex to their presence. Realizing their time for experimentation had ended he ordered Greycrow to commence the evacuation procedures. Essex would dispatch N2 to face the Invaders only to learn the clone had already freed himself from his test tube to engage the American heroes. Although N2 held off the Sub-Mariner and the Human Torch he wasn't prepared for Captain America and thus defeated. After witnessing the battle from afar Essex and Greycrow took their leave.

(Weapon X II#27 (fb) - BTS) - In 1968, Scalphunter and Essex had set up shop in Saigon, using the military conflict in Vietnam as an expedient way to acquire test subjects without being caught. Scalphunter personally brought in Essex's victims, leading to rumors about "the White Devil" roaming the country, leading to, soldiers disappearing in the brush, locals getting hijacked from their homes and bizarre experiments and "monster men" running around.

(Weapon X II#27 (fb) - BTS) - Suspecting there might be some truth in the rumors of the "White Devil", Sabretooth was hired by a woman to investigate the matter. Essex learned of this and ordered Scalphunter to collect her head and meet Sabretooth. Scalphunter located the woman and beheaded her, placing her head in a bag after which he sought out Sabretooth.

(Weapon X II#27 (fb)) - Scalphunter located Sabretooth in a local bar where he explained he came to talk about one of his "jobs". After telling Sabretooth he knew about the woman he revealed the bag with her head after which he took out a suitcase full of money. Scalphunter explained Essex had decided to compensate him for his troubles, provided they could come to an understanding. Sabretooth accepted the deal and took the money, after which Sabretooth asked how he could reach them if he ever got the urge to do "business" again. Scalphunter gave him a card but when Sabretooth saw it was a blank card he asked him what it meant after which Scalphunter explained that if they ever wanted to get in touch they would let him know, Scalphunter then left the bar.

(Gambit III#8 (fb) - BTS) - While in Scottsdale, Arizona Greycrow befriended Gambit and Claire de Luc. His friendship to Claire would eventually become a romantic one.

(Elektra III#1 (fb) ) - Learning that the famous assassin Cape Crow had been killing other assassins to steal their contracts Scalphunter joined headhunters of the Assassins Guild (Bullseye, Sabretooth, Taskmaster) to track him down. When the group finally caught up with him in one of his old vacation homes in the north they found Cape Crow waiting for them. Crow managed to defeat all four super-villains, leaving them for dead before vanishing.

(Uncanny X-Men I#350 (fb) / X-Men Origins: Gambit) - 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.

(X-Men Origins: Gambit) - Gambit travelled to all corners of the world to find all kind of mercenaries; Scalphunter was willing to hear him out but would walk if he heard something he wouldn't like.

(X-Men Origins: Gambit) - Sometime later Mr. Sinister presented the assembled team of Marauders (minus Prism and Blockbuster) to Gambit. Mr. Sinister revealed his plans to the Marauders who all agreed, Gambit was kept in the dark concerning their mission.

(X-Men: Legacy I#213 (fb) ) - Scalphunter hugged his friend Gambit while he gave Sabretooth a hand.

(Uncanny X-Men I#193 - BTS) - Acting on Mr. Sinister's standing orders, the Marauder Scalphunter anonymously killed Annalee's children. Their bodies were discovered by Sunder and the other Morlocks, who returned them to the Alley where Annalee was.

(Uncanny X-Men I#215 (fb) ) - Mr. Sinister tasked Arclight and Scalphunter 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 Scalphunter during the hunt for Pryor.

(Uncanny X-Men I#215 (fb) ) - 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#210 (fb) - BTS) - Scalphunter and a group of Marauders followed one of the Morlocks across the country to Los Angeles, the young Morlock known as Tommy thought it to be a great adventure to wander across the whole country. During her travel the Morlock had met and befriended Hellfire Club agent Richard Salmons. It was during this time the Marauders made their presence known, Salmons did his best to protect Tommy and the two managed to flee.

(Uncanny X-Men I#210) - While at Los Angeles' train depot the Marauders caught up with Tommy and Richard. Harpoon successfully hit Salmons in the back with one of his spears, paralyzing the Hellfire agent. Clinging on to dear life, Salmons asked Tommy to reach for his gun figuring they would only stand a chance together. But the petrified Tommy was too scared and ran away. Helpless against the Marauders Salmons threatened his assaulters saying the Hellfire Club would avenge him. While holding a gun to his head Scalphunter replied they were welcome to try as they would receive the same treatment after which he killed the agent. The Marauders allowed Tommy to escape and witnessed how she boarded one of the trains to New York hoping to return to the safety of the sewers and her fellow Morlocks. Some of the Marauders wanted to kill her now, but they agreed to follow Mr. Sinister's plan and allow the girl to lead them to the other Morlocks.

(Uncanny X-Men I#210) - Just when the Morlock Tommy had returned to the Morlock tunnels in New York City and thought herself safe, she was hit in the back by one of Harpoon's spears. Tommy lay paralyzed on the ground and the Marauders revealed she'd just led them to the Morlocks after which Scalphunter finished her off.

(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.

(Uncanny X-Men I#211) - The Marauders had found their way into the Morlock tunnels where they ran into a first group of mutants living close to the tunnels entrance. Scalphunter shot several Morlocks after which the fast spinning Riptide killed several others using his throwing stars. Scrambler's ability to disrupt a mutant's power disabled the powers of a Morlock who'd withstood both Scalphunter and Riptide's attacks, leaving the Morlock vulnerable to a lethal bullet courtesy of Scalphunter. The Morlock Cybelle tried to escape through a wall, but the super strong Arclight simply ripped the wall apart so Harpoon could hit Cybelle with one of his energy harpoons. Cybelle's death scream attracted the attention of Callisto, former leader of the Morlocks, who rallied her underlings and ordered them to kill the assassins. Some Morlocks like Piper, also summoned sewer creatures like bats and alligators to fight on their behalf. However, this was just what the Marauders had hoped for. As soon as the bulk of the Morlock forces were in position, Vertigo psionically disoriented them, after which Arclight created a huge shockwave that took most of them out.

(Uncanny X-Men I#211 - BTS) - Despite his injuries, a giant, mole-like Morlock escaped the tunnels and managed to make it to the home of the X-Men to warn Storm, who was leader of the Morlocks, of the ongoing massacre. He died moments after sharing the news, which convinced the X-Men of the severity of the Morlock's claims. They immediately sprang into action.

(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.

(X-Men Unlimited I#18/2 (fb) ) - The young Morlock Sarah (later known as Marrow) was horrified when Sabretooth, Riptide and Scalphunter murdered many of the Morlocks in the tunnels.

(New Mutants: Lethal Legion I#2 - BTS) - Scalphunter and Riptide followed the scent of roses and found Jared Flyn, a Morlock with the ability to create fragrant scents hiding in a crawlspace. Riptide killed Flyn by tearing him to shreds.

(X-Men Unlimited II#14) - Scalphunter shot an innocent Morlock who begged for his life. The scene was watched by a future version of Illyana Rasputin who was so upset by the Morlocks' deaths she planned to bring them back and set things straight, but in that moment she knew she couldn't act and returned to her own time.

(Uncanny X-Men I#211) - Elsewhere in the tunnels, Scalphunter had located the Morlock Annalee whose children he'd killed months earlier. He reminded her of this before shooting both her and a group of young Morlocks she'd gathered around her. After he was reunited with Arclight, the two were attacked by Colossus and Shadowcat. Arclight easily defeated Colossus by slamming him into a wall, while Scalphunter futily tried to shoot the intangible Shadowcat. She fled to save Colossus.

(Power Pack I#27) - Somewhere in the tunnels, Scalphunter single-handedly slaughtered Morlocks, no matter how hard they begged for their lives.

(New Mutants I#52 - BTS) - As part of their training, Magneto had the New Mutants face off against holograms of the Marauders during a Danger Room sessions. The simulated assassins barely needed five minutes to slaughter their teenage opponents. Magneto intended this as a lesson to show what could have happened after they defied a direct order to not get involved in the Morlock Massacre.

(Uncanny X-Men I#219 (fb) - BTS) - Possibly inspired by Malice's fight against the X-Men, Mr. Sinister decided to have her seek out and possess former X-Man Polaris. He sent Malice to track down Lorna Dane, but also arranged for a test by separately ordering Arclight, Scalphunter and Sabretooth to kill Polaris, leaving the three of them in the dark about Malice's mission.

(Uncanny X-Men I#219) - The Marauders tracked Polaris down to New Mexico, where she was sharing a condo with Havok (Alex Summers). They watched as Lorna and Alex drove off together to the airport (Alex was heading to New York to check in with the X-Men). The bloodthirsty Sabretooth was eager to kill them both, but Arclight calmed him down and ordered him to wait until Polaris was alone before moving in for the kill.

(Uncanny X-Men I#219) - Unaware of the real situation, the three Marauders struck when Lorna returned home. Arclight's powers generated a huge shockwave that caused an earthquake, which rattled Polaris and allowed Scalphunter to fire an explosive at the condo. Looking at the burning abode, Scalphunter was confident Polaris had perished, but Sabretooth's senses weren't fooled. Scouring through the flames and rubble, he easily located Polaris hiding behind a rock. Still underestimating his opponent, Sabretooth attacked only to be slammed by an avalanche of rocks that Polaris swung at him by manipulating the iron rich rubble. She also formed iron chains from the debris to briefly hold the villain before he freed himself with his claws. Polaris took to the sky, unaware she'd become a target for Scalphunter who hit her. However, Polaris threw off so much energy it created a thick mist that fogged up the battlefield. Scalphunter and Arclight entered the mist to seek their target only to get hit by an unconscious Sabretooth. Polaris then used her abilities to create a fissure in which she trapped Arclight while turning Scalphunter's arsenal against himself. With the Marauders defeated, Malice finally revealed her presence and Mr. Sinister's plan. She declared that under Mr. Sinister's tutelage, Lorna Dane would achieve her true destiny as the Mistress of Magnetism and become the Monarch of the Marauders.

(X-Men and Spider-Man#2) - Staying in Mr. Sinister's secret lab in an abandoned section of the Morlock tunnels, the Marauders were on hand when Spider-Man and the X-Men showed up. The heroes had teamed up after Spider-Man had learned that one of his adversaries, Kraven the Hunter, had provided Mr. Sinister with genetic material of the original X-Men. The Marauders (Scalphunter, Sabretooth, Arclight, Harpoon, Scrambler, Vertigo) were ready to stop the X-Men from finding what they were after. While Sabretooth took on Wolverine, Arclight created a shockwave to take the X-Men down after which Vertigo used her powers. Having fought Vertigo before, Spider-Man quickly shot webbing in her face to stop her from focusing her powers. Scrambler was easily taken out by Storm when he tried to disrupt her mutant powers only to find out she'd already lost them. Scalphunter was ready to shoot Storm, Dazzler and Rogue, but Wolverine chopped his arm off. Arclight came to his rescue, though Scalphunter assured her he would regenerate. Realizing they couldn't win against both the X-Men and Spider-Man, Scalphunter gave Arclight the order to level the ground. Once the heroes had fallen through the floor, they discovered Sinister's old lab where grotesque-looking clones of the original X-Men lay dead in test tubes. Hoping to finish off the heroes, Harpoon threw one of his spears causing a giant explosion, burning away all evidence of the X-Men clones. Nevertheless, Spider-Man and the X-Men managed to escape unscathed.

(Uncanny X-Men I#221) - In his secret base, a disappointed Mr. Sinister expressed his annoyance at the Marauders when his allegedly elite killing squad had failed to simply murder a single, human female: Madelyne Pryor. While Sinister openly wondered whether he should tear one of the Marauders's hearts out to show just how displeased he was, an insulted Sabretooth lunged for his throat. Not in the mood for surprises, the lightning quick Sinister simply grabbed the Marauder by the throat and continued his rant about Pryor. Once he'd ordered the Marauders to fulfill their mission to murder Madelyne, he released Sabretooth. Malice/Polaris then told the Marauders to get to work.

(Uncanny X-Men I#221 - BTS) - The Marauders successfully tracked Pryor down to a hospital in San Francisco, unaware the X-Men were also on her trail. Scalphunter located Pryor's room, entered it and first shot her nurse before dealing with Pryor.

(Uncanny X-Men I#221) - Sabretooth was guarding Pryor's room so Scalphunter could work undisturbed. Suddenly, Rogue surprised him, slamming the murderous mutant right out the window. Next, Rogue kicked in the door but was hit by Scalphunter's attack. Pryor took advantage of the distraction to hit the Marauder with a tray until he stood right in front of the window. Then, Dazzler, telepathically guided by Psylocke, was able to shoot him in the back from atop a nearby building across from the hospital.

(Uncanny X-Men I#222 (fb) - BTS) - Having regained consciousness Scalphunter made his way over to the Golden Gate Bridge.

(Uncanny X-Men I#222) - On the Golden Gate Bridge, Wolverine and Longshot confronted Scalphunter which led to Longshot falling off the bridge (though as luck would have it, this allowed him to get close to Madelyne Pryor so he could save her). Wolverine then stood alone against Scalphunter, Sabretooth and Scrambler, who successfully scrambled Wolverine's healing factor. Though he was now extremely vulnerable, Wolverine, still held out against his opponents, even stabbing Sabretooth in the chest. But when Scalphunter switched to explosive shells, Wolverine didn't stay around to risk mortal injuries. He jumped off the bridge and was caught by Rogue. With the X-Men out of sight and Madelyne Pryor believed to have drowned, the Marauders chose to leave as well. Scalphunter lit a flare, signaling the others that their mission was done.

(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 smashing 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. Psylocke cleverly used her telepathy to make Scrambler believe he was attacking her, when in fact he'd just scrambled Arclight's powers. 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. The X-Men reacted by destroying several of the pilots, keeping one alive for questioning. He revealed to Colossus that Magik had been overthrown in Limbo and was now succeeded by S'ym and N'astirh. Meanwhile, the X-Men's corruption had become so all-encompassing, they visually resembled demons. Now delighting in killing, they slaughtered all the Marauders they could find, Scalphunter was murdered by Wolverine.

(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) - The Marauders (without Harpoon) 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. Scalphunter was caught in the explosion and perished as well.

(X-Man I#18 (fb) - BTS) - Nate Grey's plan failed when Sinister activated new clones of Scalphunter, Arclight and Vertigo who retained the memories of their predecessors. Fully aware of Threnody's involvement with X-Man, Mr. Sinister sent the three newly cloned Marauders and Harpoon to capture Threnody in the hopes that it would attract X-Man.

(X-Man I#18) - The Marauders arrived at St. John's Cathedral where Threnody was hiding. The assassins entered through the stained glass windows, guns blazing. Vertigo quickly hit her with a dizzying wave after which Scalphunter fired stun pellets, however, Threnody dodged the bullets leaving Vertigo to be hit and knocked out. Arclight used her abilities to kick Threnody against a column after which she siphoned off some of Vertigo's pain and released it as energy back at the Marauders, stunning them. However, Mr. Sinister then appeared on the scene and easily captured her himself.

(X-Man I#19) - Scalphunter and Arclight were tasked with guarding Threnody who was now chained to a pipe. The two assassins explained that no one ever escaped Sinister, reminding the girl of how their leader had killed Malice (as seen in X-Factor I#105). Snappy as ever, Threnody reminded the Marauders that a certain cajun did get away and expected Nate Grey to come and save her soon enough. Unimpressed by her words Arclight and Scalphunter kissed. Later that day, Threnody managed to break her chains and flee but was stopped by Scalphunter and Arclight, who failed to see a huge creature appearing behind them. The new arrival turned out to be Abomination (Emil Blonsky) who'd taken up residence in the sewers attracting followers of misfits and outcasts, humans and mutants alike.

(X-Man I#20 - BTS) - Abomination defeated Scalphunter and Arclight, taking Threnody back to his tunnel.

(X-Man I#19 - BTS / X-Men: The 198 Files - BTS) - Scalphunter entered a romantic relationship with Arclight.

(Cable Annual 1999 (fb) - BTS) - Hoping to trick Cable into an alliance, Mr. Sinister disguised several of his Marauders (Scalphunter, Arclight, Harpoon, Scrambler and Riptide) as the Emissaries of En Sabah Nur.

(Cable Annual 1999) - In their Emissaries of En Sabah Nur disguises, the Marauders destroyed New York hotspot Disco Inferno, successfully attracting Cable's attention. In a nearby alley Scalphunter struck at Cable and revealed their presence declaring he was now facing his destruction. The spinning Riptide unleashed a blurred volley of razor-sharp throwing stars and knives which injured Cable, leaving him vulnerable to Scrambler. The Korean Marauder used his abilities to disrupt Cable's telekinesis, which allowed his techno-organic virus to flare out of control. Not able to defend himself any longer Cable was about to be killed by Harpoon when Mr. Sinister showed up to "rescue" Cable, fighting off the Emissaries.

(Cable Annual 1999 (fb) - BTS) - For the next part of their plan the Emissaries invaded Cable's Hell's Kitchen safe house where they took Cable's friends Blaquesmith and Irene Merryweather captive.

(Cable Annual 1999) - Imprisoned by the Emissaries, Blaquesmith wondered why he'd never heard of them in any of the prophecies about En Sabah Nur. Before he could continue his train of thought, Cable showed up to save them. Deflecting Scalphunter's rain of bullets with a telekinetic shield, he grabbed Harpoon's spear and redirected it to hit Riptide. Cable then took possession of Scrambler, forcing him to scramble Arclight's powers. The depowered Philippa was knocked out by Irene. Then, with a mere gesture, Cable suspended the Emissaries in mid-air. When Mr. Sinister entered the room, Cable telekinetically removed the Emissaries' armor, revealing them to actually be the Marauders. Once Cable attacked Sinister, the Marauders escaped.

(Gambit III#8 (fb) - BTS) - Scalphunter was contacted by his old girlfriend Claire de Luc, alarming him that Gambit was looking for him in Scottsdale, Arizona. Gambit was eager to find out just why Charles Xavier had disbanded the X-Men and stolen a disc from the X-Men's mansion that hinted at secrets Xavier was hiding. Needing info from Mr. Sinister the X-Man decided to seek out his former friend Scalphunter.

(Gambit III#8) - Armed with rubber bullets, Scalphunter located Gambit in his hotel. He quickly took out Gambit's friend Courier (Jacob Gavin Jr.) after which he opened fire on Gambit. During their fight Gambit discovered the rubber shells, realizing Scalphunter was holding back he knew he had the advantage. The reckless Gambit defeated Scalphunter after which Gambit revealed he needed his help. Scalphunter explained Mr. Sinister had all of the Marauders encoded with a gene imprint that shut them down if they ever made a move against him. Scalphunter then pointed out that Sabretooth might be able to help him, since Creed was the only Marauder still alive in his original body, Gambit then set off to find Sabretooth.

(Gambit III#9) - Gambit, Sabretooth and Courier (Jacob Gavin Jr.) invaded one of Sinister's facilities where they encountered several cloning baths in which the Marauders were grown. Sabretooth revealed the facility was the same as the X-Men had previously visited underneath the orphanage in Sage, Nebraska (seen in X-Men II#34), but it was one giant infinite space connected to all corners of the world. Their presence had triggered a warning system causing Riptide, Harpoon and Scalphunter (it's unrevealed if he is the same Scalphunter from Gambit III#8 or a new clone) to attack. Without any real trouble Gambit managed to kill Riptide, Harpoon and Scalphunter. Just before dying, Scalphunter urged Gambit to flee the facility since a new clone would hunt him within the hour.

(Weapon X II#4 - BTS) - Looking to find several missing discs Sabretooth had stolen, Weapon X operatives (Marrow, Kane, Sauron and Washout) sought out Sabretooth's associates. As such they tracked down the Marauders, demanding the location of the discs. The Marauders claimed they were hardly associates.

(Weapon X II#13) - Scalphunter was working as Mr. Sinister's personal assistant while he was posing as Dr. Windsor at the new Weapon X headquarters. In this guise he would regularly "rescue" mutants from Neverland, a mutant concentration camp. On one such occasion he "rescued" a group of five mutants. Upon arriving at his secret hideout, the mutants were gassed after which Scalphunter was ordered to move the new specimens to Section C.

(Weapon X II#14 (fb) - BTS) - Posing as Dr. Windsor, Sinister had taken two children to his laboratories, Wendy and Billy Taylor. There, they met Scalphunter and learned who Windsor really was. Wendy was powerless when Sinister started to experiment on Billy, injecting him with several formulas designed to increase his mutagenic potential.

(Weapon X II#14) - Mr. Sinister decided to try a new and improved sample of the N2 concoction. He had exposed 183 previous test subjects to the virulent concoction, only to watch them die horrible deaths. Sinister injected Wendy with the latest N2 batch and observed how she suffered tremendously before, apparently, dying. Figuring he had failed once again, Sinister ordered Scalphunter to get rid of the body that had spawned crimson red, razor sharp growths. However, Wendy suddenly woke up and appeared none the worse for wear, sparking Sinister's continued interest in the girl.

(Weapon X II#26 (fb) - BTS) - After the fall of Weapon X, Mr. Sinister and Scalphunter moved to the Center for Homo Superior Research and Medical Care where Sinister became the facility's head, posing as Dr. Robert Windsor.

(Weapon X II#28) - During this time Mr. Sinister had created a new genetically engineered superman he called Hans, although Scalphunter thought he could also have been called the "perfect mutant". Scalphunter wondered what the superman could do and was amazed when Hans possessed flight, superhuman strength, optic blasts, super speed and a healing factor as if he was a resume of Xavier's. Besides Hans, Sinister had created an entire army of "perfect mutants" he called the Children.

(Weapon X II#26 - BTS) - As time went on Scalphunter grew tired of playing second fiddle to Sinister's new bodyguard.

(Weapon X II#26 (fb) ) - At one time Scalphunter and Mr. Sinister were photographed getting out of a car by one of John Sublime's men. Sublime, under the alias of Michael Grand, headed MegaCorp and wanted Sinister delivered to him so he could potentially buy his latest test subjects, the Children. As Grand, Sublime hired Sabretooth to locate and bring Sinister in.

(Weapon X II#26) - While at the Research Center, Scalphunter was present when Mr. Sinister inspected one of his newest test subjects Louis Dodson, a teenage mutant incapable of controlling his freezing breath. Once the boy's parents had left Mr. Sinister ordered Scalphunter to prepare a portable tent so they could take Dodson with them. Scalphunter begrudgingly asked Sinister why he had to do this instead of his new crony Hans. Sinister bluntly reacted that he had asked him and not Hans. However, before Scalphunter could see to Dodson they were interrupted by Sabretooth who'd come to take Sinister. Scalphunter immediately protected his master but was sidelined again when Sinister asked Hans to intervene and attack Sabretooth. While Hans grabbed Sabretooth and jumped out of the window, Scalphunter prepared to join the fight but was ordered to stand down and see to the task at hand.

(Weapon X II#27) - Scalphunter learned Sabretooth managed to defeat Hans but was in turn defeated by the Children, other "perfect mutants" like Hans. Scalphunter decided to leave Sabretooth a message, another blank card like he'd given to him many years ago in Saigon. When Sabretooth saw the blank card he immediately realized it was from Scalphunter and called out to him in the streets. Just then, one of the cars lowered his window to reveal Scalphunter.

(Weapon X II#28) - Scalphunter and Sabretooth met up at Satan's Circus, a bar where all kinds of superhuman criminals would meet. There Scalphunter explained he wanted Sabretooth to destroy Hans and the Children, since he was afraid to become obsolete and end up on Sinister's table himself. Scalphunter offered him the location of Sinister and the means to get past his castle's defenses and would even make sure that he himself wouldn't be around. Sabretooth accepted, but before Scalphunter left he advised that he should perhaps just call the X-Men, which made Sabretooth think.

(Weapon X II#28 - BTS) - Unbeknownst to Scalphunter, Sabretooth had analyzed Hans and the Children's many powers, realizing they all seemed to lack telepathy. Figuring because telepathy was one of the hardest powers for a mutant to control, this might be a potential weak spot he had the people at MegaCorp whip up a device that allowed him to beam his thoughts into the minds of others. He then set out to confront Mr. Sinister and the Children, upon meeting them he used the device, successfully rendering the Children unconscious. MegaCorp's Michael Grand then appeared and paid Sabretooth twice the amount they had agreed upon just so he would leave the castle. When the mutant had left Grand revealed he was John Sublime, Sinister's biggest fan! Sublime offered Sinister the Mutant Files that Sabretooth had stolen before from Weapon X in exchange for the Children. Figuring they were experiments he'd deemed failures anyway, Sinister accepted thus expanding Sublime's army.

(Weapon X II#28) - After the ordeal Scalphunter and Sabretooth met again at Satan's Circus, now playing a game of cards with Absorbing Man, Constrictor and Typhoid Mary. Just as Scalphunter was winning the game Sabretooth received a message from the Brotherhood of Mutants.

(Excalibur III#5 - BTS) - Charles Xavier and Callisto suspected Scalphunter and the Marauders to be behind the chain of attacks on X-Corps buildings.

(House of M I#8 - BTS) - Scalphunter was among the handful of mutants who retained their powers after the Scarlet Witch cast a reality-altering spell to shut off the mutant gene. In the aftermath, there were roughly 300 active known mutants worldwide.

(House of M: The Day After#1 - BTS) - Scalphunter was among the mutants who flocked towards the Xavier Institute, figuring that now that they were a minority, the X-Men's school was the safest place to be.

(X-Men: The 198 Files - BTS) - General Demetrius Lazer of O∗N∗E made a threat assessment of the remaining mutants. In this report, he analyzed Scalphunter.

(Uncanny X-Men I#466 - BTS) - The Xavier Institute was unable to cope or house the influx of dozens of mutant refugees. To house them, they quickly erected a makeshift refugee camp on the Institute's front lawn, where Scalphunter and many others were guarded by the O∗N∗E Sentinels.

(X-Men: The 198#5) - Scalphunter witnessed how Mr. M told Cyclops the mutants now fell under his protection. This infuriated Johnny Dee, who was working with General Lazer. He used his puppetry powers to force Fever Pitch into firing a blast but Iceman deflected it. Seeing the 198 fight the X-Men, Scalphunter and Arclight discussed how they promised to be good but couldn't refrain from fighting any longer. Having realized this would happen sooner or later Scalphunter had already prepared a small gun which he took from his backpack. Armed with his weapon, Scalphunter held his gun to Beast's head forcing the X-Men and Sentinels to stop fighting. Mr. M's girlfriend Lorelei quickly used her living hair to stop Scalphunter after which he knocked the girl unconscious, enraged at what was happening Mr. M released a powerful blast hurling Scalphunter and the others back. Then, just as Mr. M was doing his best to control the situation, Johnny Dee exerted his control over Leech. The tiny mutant depowered Mr. M who fell to the ground where he made an easy target for Johnny's next mental puppet Magma. Within seconds, a volcanic geyser reduced Mercator into a smoldering skeleton. Demoralized by M's death, the renegade mutants were returned to their encampment. Not wanting the 198 to grieve for his death, Mr. M sent them a message even as his body was transformed into a swarm of butterflies.

(X-Men II#183 - BTS) - Realizing mutantkind had dwindled, Apocalypse saw himself as the mutant messiah that would usher in a new era. Apocalypse planned to use his horseman Pestilence (Lorna Dane) to kill mutants and humans. Appearing on the front lawn of Xavier's in a sphinx-like ship he declared to be the mutants' salvation, asking complete loyalty. In exchange for this, Apocalypse offered an elixir made of his blood that would keep them safe from Pestilence's plague.

(X-Men II#183) - When Apocalypse appeared over the Xavier Institute, announcing he would provide hope and salvation for mutantkind, Arclight and Scalphunter joined other members of the 198 in confronting the X-Men. Later, he started suffering severe hunger pangs, courtesy of Apocalypse's Horseman Famine (formerly the X-Man Sunfire). Scalphunter, along with many of the 198 were tempted to drink an elixir Apocalypse offered in exchange for allegiance to him. While he stood in line Scalphunter witnessed how Karma pushed Skids out of the way after which she in turn was pushed away by Fever Pitch. Mere seconds later Apocalypse and his Horseman War fought the Sentinels which only helped to increase his popularity among the 198.

(X-Men II#184 (fb) - BTS) - Scalphunter, Fever Pitch and Skids willingly joined Apocalypse who allowed them entrance to his Celestial vessel.

(X-Men II#184) - Turning against his master, Ozymandias led a small strike force of X-Men, including Bling!, into Apocalypse's sphinx-like ship. They were amazed at the inner workings of the Celestial vessel. When they finally came face to face with Apocalypse he sent three of his new recruits, Scalphunter, Fever Pitch and Skids, to stop them. He also sent out his latest Horseman, Death who turned out to be Gambit.

(X-Men II#185 (fb) - BTS) - As Apocalypse's conflict with the X-Men continued, Scalphunter and the others were gone, potentially dismissed by Apocalypse.

(Civil War: X-Men#1) - Scalphunter participated in a riot led by Caliban against O∗N∗E soldiers. But this was just a diversion until Domino and Shatterstar arrived to take down the Sentinels. The X-Men failed to stop them which led to the escape of Scalphunter and other 198 members alongside Domino and Shatterstar in a cloaked aircraft.

(Civil War: X-Men#2 - BTS) - Scalphunter, Arclight and the other escapees arrived at a base in the Nevada Desert that became their new home. Unbeknownst to them Bishop was tasked by O∗N∗E directors Val Cooper and General Lazer to find them. Bishop recruited Sabra and the British size-changing hero Micromax to help him.

(Civil War: X-Men#3) - From inside the base Scalphunter, Arclight and the other 198 members watched what was going on outside of their base. As such they witnessed as the X-Men (Cyclops, Beast, Iceman, Angel) fought Bishop and his forces. Unaware the fight had been started by Johnny Dee, who was controlled by General Lazer, Johnny Dee had mind-controlled Cyclops into blasting Bishop. Inside the base, Domino tried to persuade the 198 to help the X-Men fight Bishop and the O∗N∗E. However Scalphunter reasoned they should just take the cloaked aircraft and escape after which Arclight added they would be too vulnerable as a group. Just then Johnny Dee took control of Outlaw and Lorelei but after Domino and Toad took care of their mind-controlled friends General Lazer, from his office, activated the base's self-destruct protocol that locked down the Nevada facility, condemning everyone inside to die.

(Civil War: X-Men#4) - Scalphunter and other mutants used their mutant abilities in an effort to open the base's locked doors but failed. The X-Men, O∗N∗E and Avengers eventually arrived. Working together, Bishop, Cyclops and others combined their powers to open the blast doors from the outside. Scalphunter and the other mutants left the base and were brought to safety by helicopters and Sentinels before the base detonated.

(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 human 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 Scalphunter and the other Marauders out on numerous hit jobs.

(X-Men II#202 (fb) ) - Now feeling ready to take on the "big" guns Vertigo and Scalphunter set out to kill Gateway.

(X-Men II#200) - Back in New Orleans, Vertigo and Scalphunter successfully located the Witness (of Earth-1191). Having foreseen the attack, he didn't put up a fight and was consequently killed.

(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 Scalphunter and the Marauders were already inside. Still not realizing Omega Sentinel had been possessed by Malice, Cyclops tried to shield her from the Marauders attack only to be taken out by Malice herself. Scalphunter tried to shoot Rogue 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 loss of the diaries, 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) - Scalphunter 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 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). Scalphunter ripped Deadpool's throat out.

(X-Men: Messiah Complex#1 (fb) ) - Now joined by Blockbuster the Marauders 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 - BTS) - The Marauders were unable to locate the child because Cable had already taken her to safety. The X-Men, also unaware of this when they arrived in Cooperstown, only found destruction and evidence of the Marauders' involvement.

(New X-Men II#44) - Realizing the X-Men would certainly come to their base in search of the baby, Mr. Sinister decided he and the Marauders would move to a different location so they could confront their enemies on their own terms. Unaware a small squad of senior X-Men had already arrived near their secret complex in Antartica. During the Marauders meeting, Scalphunter realized Harpoon had gone missing after which Harpoon came crashing through the wall, followed by the X-Men. Led by Wolverine, the X-Men made their intention to retrieve Rogue and the baby clear.

(X-Men II#205) - Now a veritable army, the Marauders circled Wolverine, Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, and Angel. The X-Men were then joined by Emma Frost, which caused them to launch into a planned out, surgical strike against their foes' superior strength. The first to fall were Vertigo and Scrambler, who were taken out by Nightcrawler who teleported them to the icy Sor Rondane mountains. Using the relatively small space to their advantage, the X-Men caused the Marauders to trip all over themselves, accidentally hitting teammates left and right. Scalphunter was kicked back which led him to shoot Tempo and Random. During the fight, Angel confronted Sinister, ordering him to hand over the child. Meanwhile, Wolverine confronted Gambit and learned Cable had the baby. While Angel was still talking to Sinister he realized Frost's presence had disappeared (Emma got distracted when she sensed the Purifiers were attacking her students). Without Frost damping his powers, Sinister hurled Angel aside and successfully took down Colossus. Realizing the fight was over Storm sacrificed herself so Nightcrawler could escape, ordering Kurt to find Wolverine. Outside the base, Malice and Lady Mastermind teamed up against Wolverine. They made him believe the unconscious Scrambler was actually Angel, causing Wolverine to tend to him leaving himself open to attack. Malice then ordered Omega Sentinel to fire a massive heat ray that somehow eliminated the X-Man's healing factor. Wolverine was about to die, if not for Nightcrawler who teleported them both away even as Scalphunter fired a shot. So panicked by the situation, Nightcrawler bamfed himself and Logan to a nearby mountain.

(Uncanny X-Men I#493 - BTS) - Mr. Sinister and the Marauders relocated to Muir Island.

(X-Factor III#27) - Gambit and the Marauders returned to Muir Island with the child and were met by all of the Marauders. Gambit handed the child to Mystique who was posing as Sinister and ordered the Marauders to prepare for the X-Men's coming assault. Seconds later, Mystique revealed her true identity to Gambit and showed Sinister's lifeless corpse. Later that evening X-Force and Bishop arrived on Muir Island "welcomed" by the full force of the Marauders.

(New X-Men II#46) - As soon as the fight between the Marauders and X-Force started, Scalphunter quickly took out Wolverine by shooting him through the head.

(New X-Men II#46 - BTS / Deadpool v Gambit#4 (fb) ) - Scalphunter stood by as Scalphunter shot Wolverine through the head. Eager for the opportunity to kill Wolverine, Scrambler grabbed the heavily injured X-Man, scrambling his healing powers. Logan was saved by X-23, who cut off Scrambler's hands and then used her claws to disembowel the Marauder.

(New X-Men II#46) - From the sidelines, Scalphunter spotted another opportunity when he targeted X-Men ally Hepzibah. However, Warpath threw his knife in Scalphunter's shoulder, throwing off his aim. Just as Mystique helped Greycrow remove the blade, they witnessed the arrival of both X-Factor and the X-Men. Mystique ordered Scalphunter to do whatever it took to stop the heroes while she returned to Gambit and the baby. Back at the huge battle, matters became even more chaotic when Pixie teleported Anole, Armor, Beast, Dust, Mercury, Nezhno, Nightcrawler, Prodigy, Rockslide and Surge to Muir Island with the deadly Predator X in hot pursuit. The gigantic creature immediately grabbed Vertigo with it's sharp teeth, crushing her after which it turned to face the others.

(X-Men II#207) - Cyclops decided to use this to their advantage and ordered Frost to tell the new arrivals to target the Marauders. He figured that the Marauders were intimately familiar with the X-Men, but had no experience fighting the students. His gambit paid off as one by one the Marauders were knocked down by the combined powers of the student body and the guidance of Emma Frost. This left the X-Men to deal with Predator X. With the Marauders defeated and Predator X dead, the X-Men decided to hand the baby to Cable so he could keep her safe in the distant future.

(X-Men II#207 / Cable II#2 / X-Men: Legacy I#208 (fb) ) - After the Marauders had lost the fight against the X-Men, Exodus and his men were about to flee when Bishop grabbed a gun from the unconscious Scalphunter which he used to shoot Professor X in an attempt to get to the baby. Exodus quickly ordered Tempo to freeze time. They grabbed Xavier's body and left before the X-Men could act, leaving the Marauders in the process.

(X-Men Divided We Stand#1/5 (fb) - BTS) - Scalphunter was on the run, afraid the X-Men would come out to hunt him down. In an effort to hide in plain sight he opened up a diner in what his father would've called a "cigarette town", a place so small you couldn't even finish a cigarette while driving through it. Every night Scalphunter would retreat into his trailer and have a gun ready for when the X-Men would find him.

(X-Men Divided We Stand#1/5) - For several days in a row a priest would come to his diner and order migas, the dish Scalphunter's mom would make when he was young. Unaware the priest was in fact Nightcrawler using an image inducer, the X-Man had tracked Scalphunter down planning to kill him. During his visits the "priest" would talk to Scalphunter about God and art and would be surprised that the migas he ordered would always taste the same. Driven insane by the priest's ramblings Scalphunter decided to pack up and leave town, but as he tried to do so that night he was attacked by Nightcrawler, revealing he'd been the priest all along. Nightcrawler explained he wanted to murder Scalphunter but that through his cooking he learned Scalphunter was a godless being, a copy of a copy, no art but just mechanical reproduction, there wouldn't be any point in killing him as there would just be another each time. Before Nightcrawler left he forgave Scalphunter hoping he might someday find grace. The next day Scalphunter was back in his diner, wearing a cross around his neck.

(Deadpool v Gambit#4 (fb) - BTS) - The clone of Scambler who had survived his interaction with X-23 (New X-Men II#46), was persuaded by attorney and super-heroine Jennifer Walters to testify against Scalphunter. Scrambler testified against Scalphunter who was then incarcerated.

(Deadpool v Gambit#4 (fb) ) - Upon his release Scalphunter and the Vanisher located Scrambler. The Scrambler clone was less then pleased to see the two Marauders on his doorstep. Scalphunter and the Vanisher ordered Scrambler to help them on an easy job but when he refused the Marauders beat him up. Fed up with the Marauders, Scrambler used his abilities to turn off their most basic functions so the Marauder shat themselves and ran away.

(Deadpool v Gambit#4 (fb) ) - Sometime later Scalphunter returned with Blockbuster and Harpoon, all three wearing special collars so Scrambler's powers wouldn't work on them. Scrambler, however, could still scramble the collar, and by doing that he stopped them and called the cops. The three Marauders were subsequently arrested.

(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.

(Uncanny X-Men I#515) - While in his diner, Scalphunter was attacked by Lobe and his team of augmented superhumans (Bouncing Betty, Burst, Thug, Verre). Lobe, a former follower of John Sublime had devised a plan to replicate the X-Men's powers and give them to everybody on Earth, a feat for which he needed Scalphunter. Although Scalphunter managed to defeat Thug he couldn't withstand the full force of Lobe's team and was finally knocked unconscious by Bouncing Betty.

(Uncanny X-Men I#516) - The unconscious Scalphunter was hung above a pit of Predators X, genetically engineered animal-mutant hybrid's developed for hunting and killing mutants. When he awoke to the screeching sounds of the Predators, Lobe revealed he in fact wanted to hire Scalphunter, using the Predators as a way to explain what would happen if he were to fail his mission. Lobe explained he needed Scalphunter to fly an airplane with five Predators X to the X-Men's base on Utopia, since he and his team weren't mutants they wouldn't be allowed into Utopia's airspace. However, what Lobe didn't reveal was that he would expect the X-Men to defeat the Predators in which case thousands of nanomachine spies would be released from their bodies that would spy on all the mutants on Utopia, analyzing their fighting styles, powers and DNA for him to enhance his team's capabilities and ultimately replicate their powers for everybody on Earth. Later that day Scalphunter flew the plane into Utopia's airspace, requesting sanctuary, suspicious about this sudden arrival Cyclops had Nightcrawler teleport aboard to check what was on the plane. Upon discovering the mutant killing beasts aboard Nightcrawler screamed they had to shoot the plane down.

(Uncanny X-Men I#517) - Cyclops used the full force of his optic blast to shoot down the plane, the explosion even killed one of the five creatures. Scalphunter survived the explosion as well and swam ashore while the X-Men prepared to face the four remaining beasts. The X-Men successfully killed three of them but just when the fourth and last one was about to eat Cyclops it was killed by Scalphunter.

(Uncanny X-Men I#517 (fb) - BTS) - Scalphunter was imprisoned in what the X-Men called the X-Brig, Utopia's detention and rehabilitation center. Danger would serve as it's warden and exposed the prisoners to all kind of virtual reality scenarios to make them see the light.

(Uncanny X-Men I#517) - When Scalphunter woke up he found himself to be on an abandoned island and was greeted by Danger, informing him he was now her prisoner.

(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.

(New Mutants III#12) - In the X-Brig, Scalphunter was immobilized wearing virtual reality glasses through which one of Danger's rehabilitation scenarios was played out. Danger was visited by Rogue and failed to notice that one of her prisoners, Donald Pierce had somehow bypassed her system.

(New Mutants III#14 - BTS) - Cyclops released Scalphunter from his imprisonment.

(New Mutants III#14) - During the events that became known as the Second Coming, Cyclops motivated Scalphunter and several others to stand up and protect the future of mutantkind against a wave of Nimrod Sentinels approaching Utopia. Scalphunter, Random, Litterbug and Sack decided to help fight the Nimrod Sentinels and were well on their way to locate them when Toad ran towards them, wondering why they would even bother to fight them. Just as Toad and Sack started a heated debate a Nimrod Sentinel beheaded Sack. Scalphunter and the others prepared to fight the Nimrod Sentinel.

(Uncanny X-Men I#529 - BTS) - Scalphunter was put back into the X-Brig.

(Uncanny X-Men I#529) - Danger continued Scalphunter's rehabilitation in a special virtualy reality scenario where she forced him to relive the Morlock Massacre. However, in this scenario the deceased Morlock Tommy explained everything was going to be okay, somehow offering a scenario in which the Morlocks had forgiven the assassin. Before Danger could see the scenario play out she was interrupted by Madison Jeffries.

(X-Men: Regenesis#1) - Following the events of X-Men: Schism the news Wolverine had quit the X-Men to start a school where young mutants would be students, not soldiers, had made their way throughout Utopia. As any other resident on Utopia, Danger was asked whether she would stay or not. Whilst guarding Scalphunter she reasoned her interest was in the rehabilitation of criminals and would stay on Utopia as long as the criminals would stay as well.

(Elektra III#1 (fb) - BTS) - Even after all these years the Assassins Guild continued their search for Cape Crow, calling him "the one that got away". Eventually they located his signals, but of all the original headhunters only Scalphunter was still available: Taskmaster served A.I.M.'s High Council, Sabretooth loyally followed Mystique and Bullseye was seemingly crippled beyond hope of recovery. Scalphunter was instead joined by Lady Bullseye who accompanied him to Monster Island.

(Elektra III#2 (fb) - BTS) - Scalphunter and Lady Bullseye located Cape Crow (unaware that in fact it was his son Kento Roe) and successfully wounded him but couldn't stop the ancient assassin from fleeing.

(Elektra III#2) - Armed to the teeth, Scalphunter and Lady Bullseye discovered Crow's blood on the leaves of a bush unaware Elektra had also travelled to Monster Island. She had come to take Cape Crow alive. Upon following the bloody trail they found themselves in a nest with dozens of giant eggs but failed to realize it was a trap left by Crow. Within seconds, bombs hidden among the eggs went off, covering Scalphunter and Lady Bullseye in chunks. Elektra then revealed her presence and intention to take Cape Crow in alive, thus angering Scalphunter who wasn't about to let her take away their bounty. Scalphunter and Lady Bullseye opened fire but Elektra easily evaded their attacks after which the monstrous mother of the giant eggs returned to her nest. The monster immediately grabbed Scalphunter's leg with her teeth and swung him around while Lady Bullseye fought Elektra. When Elektra won the fight by stabbing Lady Bullseye in the chest she turned to see the monster who'd eaten Scalphunter.

(Elektra III#3 - BTS) - Bloody Lips killed the mother monster and ate it thus regaining its strength and memories, but because the monster had already eaten Scalphunter he also gained his mutant healing factor.

(Elektra III#4 - BTS) - Bloody Lips felt Scalphunter inside of him screaming when he was about to enter Scalphunter's airplane the Dirty Bird.

(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 then killed the remaining Marauders.

(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) - Magneto tried to recreate a safe haven on the island of Genosha where Scalphunter and Blockbuster were seen guarding him. The next day, Scalphunter and Riptide joined Magneto in a murder investigation, ordering Scalphunter to start a sweep. Upon finding more dead bodies they discovered a large swastika on a wall drawn in blood. 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) - Scalphunter and the Marauders were tasked with searching Genosha for the killer. That night Magneto faced the Herr Hitzig construct, but was unable to stop the monster from escaping.

(Magneto III#18) - On the eve of total destruction when Earth-616 was about to crash into Earth-1610, Magneto ordered his Marauders to help as many people they could. For the first time in their existence, the Marauders found themselves doing good, rather than wreaking havoc and destruction.

(Magneto III#19) - The Marauders were seen helping people in the streets of New York City while Magneto and Polaris fought an army of Nimrod Sentinels who'd swooped down from Reality-1610.

(Magneto III#20 - BTS) - Blockbuster and Arclight launched several power amplifiers so Polaris and Magneto had the strength they needed to destroy the Nimrod Sentinels of Reality-1610.

(Magneto III#21 - BTS) - The Marauders and all of Reality-616 were seemingly destroyed when Earth-616 and Earth-1610 collided as part of the final Incursion.


(Deadpool v Gambit#4 (fb) ) - Embracing who he truly was Scrambler set out to rescue Scalphunter from prison. Using his superhuman abilities Scrambler successfully freed Scalphunter.

(Deadpool v Gambit#3) - Scrambler hosted a BBQ-party for his friends: several well-known superhuman criminals like Absorbing Man, Azimuth, Boomerang, Scalphunter, Stinger, Vindaloo and X-Ray. During the party Deadpool and Gambit showed up to get Scrambler. However, seeing the heroes the other superhuman criminals immediately engaged the heroes providing Scrambler with an opportunity to flee the scene. Gambit and Deadpool were unable to follow Scrambler when Fat Cobra suddenly appeared.

(Deadpool v Gambit#4) - Unimpressed by Deadpool and Gambit the criminals present at Scrambler's barbecue attacked them. Gambit immediately attacked Scalphunter while Scrambler fled the scene.

Scalphunter has no known connections to

Dirty Bird

The Dirty Bird was an airplane Scalphunter had built from scratch using his technoformation power.

Scalphunter had used the plane to travel to Monster Island while searching for Cape Crow. But after he'd been swallowed whole by a monster it was the Australian assassin Bloody Lips who had gained his memories by eating the monster who'd eaten Scalphunter. Using Scalphunter's memories Bloody Lips located the Dirty Bird and used the vessel to hunt Elektra. However, Elektra managed to destroy the vessel in mid-air. Parts of the destroyed craft were later seen in the arctic where Lady Bullseye escaped.
