History: (Death of X I#1) – In Japan, an Inhuman cocoon opened in the middle of a battle between Crystal's team of Inhumans (including Gorgon, Iso, Grid, Flint and Naja) and Hydra. Daisuke emerged with a long blue Mohawk and he expelled a wave of energy that entranced all of the Hydra agents but did not affect the Inhumans. Crystal introduced herself to Daisuke, who was pleased to learn he was Inhuman, as he felt he had been along for far too long. Crystal promised they would protect him and help him learn about his gifts.
(Death of X I#2) – Daisuke accompanied Crystal's team aboard the R.I.V. to Madrid, where they planned to save any mutants who might be in the path of the Terrigen Cloud. Crystal ordered Daisuke to use his powers to put the entire city to sleep, including the mutants (including Storm, Forge, and the time-displaced Iceman, Angel and Cyclops) that were in the city.
(Death of X I#3) – Pleased that he helped people and stopped a potential riot, Daisuke admitted he didn't even like most people. Encouraged by the others to choose a code name for himself, Daisuke selected Downer. The X-Men woke up and confronted the Inhumans with Cerebra. As the conflict escalated, Downer considered putting the mutants to sleep again but Magik appeared behind him, knocked him unconscious and teleported away with him.
(Death of X I#4 (fb) – BTS) – Magik left Downer in the demonic hell of Limbo.
(Death of X I#4) – Magik returned to claim Downer, who said he wanted nothing to do with the X-Men or Inhumans after she took him back to Earth.
