History
(Wolverine: Weapon X#12 (fb) - BTS) - Apparently receiving visions of the future from Reality-10511 (almost certainly sent via the General-10511 via his preserved brain of Emma Frost and head of Kang), Miranda Bayer sought out Wolverine to warn him of the threat of this future's Deathloks traveling back in time to eliminate threats to that future.

(Wolverine: Weapon X#12 - BTS) - The young Evan Wakowski (perhaps 10 years old) happened to be in the subway in which Wolverine and Captain America (James Barnes) alongside Miranda Bayer, encountered a group of these Deathloks.

(Wolverine: Weapon X#12) - When Miranda was threatened by Deathlok L17, her attacker was briefly immobilized by its own circuitry as it recognized her from its own future. 

    Evan rushed up and pulled Miranda to safety and urged her to flee. Miranda was shocked to recognized him from her future visions as the younger/past self of Wakowski.

   As Evan continued to try to convince Miranda to run, Cap (Barnes) shot Deathlok in the back of the head. She ignored Evan's continued requests, and he stood by as she talked to Wolverine who was recovering from a Deathlok assault 

(Wolverine: Weapon X#13) - As a recovered Deathlok L17 again confronted -- and was immobilized by its computer-self's errors in evaluating her -- Miranda (alongide Evan Wakowski), Wolverine impaled and then beheaded Deathlok. -cut-off-WWX14p14pan7

    After the other Deathloks departed when the Avengers (Luke Cage, Iron Fist/Daniel Rand, Steve Rogers, Spider-Man/Peter Parker, Spider-Woman/Jessica Drew, Thing/Ben Grimm) showed up, Wolverine asked who the kids was. 

    Miranda told Wolverine Wakowski was with her, although Evan argued that he was not, and that  he had no idea what was going on. 

    Miranda told Wakowski to trust her, and he asked her how she knew his name and "who the Hell are you people?" Wolverine asked if the kid was somebody important, and she told Wolverine he would be. 

(Wolverine: Weapon X#13) - Miranda and Wakowski accompanied Wolverine and Cap/Barnes as they flew via Avengers Quinjet (bringing with them the head and body of Deathlok L17) to meet with Dr. David Heimerdinger, who had designed the Deathloks in Miranda's future self's timeline.

    Evan was brought along as they met Heimerdinger at the Roadside Carcass Removal Department, where Evan was mortified at the cyborg animals kept in cages there. After Deathlok L17's body slew Heimerdinger, Evan interrupted a discussion of how this would affect the future, asking them where the head had gone. Evan departed the facility along with the heroes and Miranda.

(Wolverine: Weapon X#13 (fb) - BTS) - When the other Deathloks encountered and defeated heroes at their targets' locations, they realized the heroes were most likely receiving stolen intelligence and that Miranda was the most likely source. Aware of her location due to her interaction with Deathlok L17, the Deathloks transmitted a new priority objective to all units: neutralizing Miranda Bayer.dead_hand-WWX14p15pan2

(Wolverine: Weapon X#13) - As Miranda, Evan, Wolverine, and Cap/Barnes headed back to the quinjet, they were confronted by Deathlok L17. Possessing Spider-Man-like webshooters, Wolverine-like energy claws, a repulsor-firing Iron Man-like gauntlet (presumably indicating that somone had designed them even better than Heimerdinger had), Deathlok  L17  pinned down the heroes with webbing and prepared to neutralize Bayer.

(Wolverine: Weapon X#14) - When Wolverine and Cap tackled Deathlok, Miranda grabbed Wakowski and fled, and Deathlok L17 summoned the other Deathloks to go after her. As the first pair arrived, Miranda and Wakowski narrowly dodged their energy blasts. However, as she fled with Wakowski, the Deathloks pursued. As the young boy told her to stop calling her Wakowski, which no one else called him, and that his name was Evan, he was fatally struck and killed by the Deathloks' blasts. 

(Wolverine: Weapon X#14 - BTS) <Approximately 25 years in the future of Reality-10511> - Evan's future self apparently vanished from the timeline, virtually dooming the resistance's efforts to stop the Deathloks from traveling into the past.

CommentsCreated by Jason Aaron and Ron Garney.

    Hmmm...good idea or bad idea to bring a young kid with no super-abilities and no knowledge of the situation along on an investigation of the lethal Deathlok cyborgs (and along with their seemingly incapacitated leader)? I'd go with bad idea. 

    In #12, his shirt appeared to same something like "New Lion," but in #13, while they were still in the same fight in the subway, it looked to say "Lion's Den"
