(Uncanny X-Men#512 (fb) - BTS) - Lord Molyneux led a branch of the Hellfire Club based in San Francisco. Molyneux's group sought to protect humanity by eliminating the "overmen" (mutants) that they perceived to be poised to overrun and replace mankind.
Molyneux somehow accumulated a number of seers (presumably possessing some degree of ESP (Extrasensory Perception)); as they were useful to predict what would come next, Molyneux preserved them.
Molyneux's "league of sensitives" (the seers) detected possible
"evolutionary outbreaks," and the Hellfire Club eliminated them on
However, as more and more "overmen" developed, the Hellfire Club constructed an immense robot known as a Sentinel, with which they intended to eliminate overmen.
The Sentinel required a power source, and the Hellfire Club targeted
Dr. Nicola Bradley, who was in the process of developing a
generator-battery that would provide "nearly infinite and wholly
inexpensive wireless electricity," to produce that source.
