History:
(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Sanctuary - Part I" - BTS) - Believing Magneto's message of mutant supremacy, Frenzy and several other mutants banded together as the Acolytes, hoping for the opportunity to serve Magneto.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Sanctuary - Part I" - BTS) - Frenzy and mutants from around the world watched as Magneto spoke at the United Nations, announcing the liberation of mutantkind. Magneto revealed that he and several missing scientists had built a mutant-only home on Asteroid M in the Earth's orbit. One of the Acolytes, Burner (Byron Calley) had already joined him when Magneto invited all mutants, explaining a first exodus would take place on the African planes near Genosha after which he would rescue the enslaved Genoshan mutants. Believing it to be the perfect opportunity to introduce themselves to Magneto, the Acolytes waited in Genosha.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Sanctuary - Part I") - Upon Magneto's arrival in Genosha, the Acolytes watched as he urged the Genoshan mutants to cast off their bonds and join them. In a mighty show of force, the mutants who joined Magneto's transport earlier formed a powerful front. Magneto's call, however, was answered by the Genoshan Magistrates who refused to release their prisoners which in turn led to the mutant convoy to attack them. During this fight the Acolytes made their spectacular reveal and helped the mutants to quickly gain the upper hand, Frenzy used her superhuman strength to bend a steel pipe and trap a group of Magistrates with it. This, however, prompted the Genoshan Magistrates to release a group of Sentinels to level the playing field. In the end Magneto, repowered by Acolyte Fabian Cortez destroyed the Sentinels, forcing the Genoshan Magistrates to flee. He then freed the Genoshan mutants.

   Arriving on Asteroid M, Frenzy and the Acolytes pledged their loyalty to Magneto and were even invited to a ceremonial toast alongside Magneto. Disappointed Magneto wasn't the fearless leader he'd hoped for, Fabian Cortez confronted Magneto, taking away his powers. Believing Magneto would serve their cause better as a martyr Cortez trapped him in his chambers and opened the airlock, causing Magneto's chambers to be pulled into Earth's atmosphere. Suspicious of Asteroid M's alarm, X-Men Beast and Gambit quickly located Cortez only to be accused of killing their enigmatic leader Magneto. Frenzy, Ape and Milan were among the first to leave the quarters to investigate.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Sanctuary - Part II") - Although Professor X and Beast successfully escaped, Gambit was taken prisoner by the Acolytes. Frenzy was presumably amongst the mutants calling out for Gambit's blood when Cortez presented them with the alleged assassin of Magneto. Sometime later Frenzy and the other Acolytes were present when Cortez addressed world leaders, threatening to attack them unless they would release all mutants in captivity and pay restitution for human crimes against them, a feat which the inhabitants of Asteroid M celebrated. Unbeknownst to Frenzy and the others, a small strike team of X-Men secretly arrived at Asteroid M to not only save Gambit but deactivate all of Asteroid M's active warheads. It didn't take long, however, before the Acolytes came to blows with Rogue and Wolverine. Just as Unuscione defeated Rogue and Wolverine, Frenzy was ordered to broadcast their defeat to the world. Cortez' tirade was stopped when Amelia Voght played the security tape of Magneto's chambers, revealing that it was Cortez who'd seemingly killed Magneto. Distraught, Frenzy and the Acolytes turned against Cortez. In the end Magneto, revived, destroyed the active warheads after which he attacked and defeated Cortez. In a mighty show of force Magneto finally destroyed Asteroid M, Frenzy and all other mutants were safely returned to the African planes, under the watchful eyes of MjNari and the Black Panther.

(Secret Wars#1 - BTS) - When the Multiverse was destroyed following the incursions of planets, Doctor Doom, using the Beyonders' powers, created Battleworld a patchwork of different realities. Among those domains was Earth-92131, now called the Westchester domain, ruled by former President Kelly who was appointed by Doom to become the domain's Baron.

(X-Men '92 I#2 - BTS) - Following the Westchester Wars, the Bureau of Super-Powers established the Clear Mountain Institute, a rehab facility designed to help mutants re-enter society. The institute was led by Cassandra Nova, a female clone of Charles Xavier who was used as a host by the Shadow King. The Shadow King had become aware of other X-Men inhabiting Battleworld's domains who were plagued by hardship and catastrophe, fearing that their domain was too fragile he set out to ensure their survival by changing the X-Men and other dangerous mutants into proper role models as to not attract the wrath of Doom and replace Kelly as Baroness of Westchester in the process.

(X-Men '92 I#2 - BTS) - Frenzy was one of the many mutants to join the Clear Mountain Institute to live in harmony in their isolated community. Frenzy supposedly went through the institute's psychotherapy "The Mind Field".

(X-Men '92 I#2) - Frenzy was seen talking to Iceman when the X-Me received a grand tour of the facility by Cassandra Nova.

(Secret Wars#9 - BTS) - Earth-92131 along with all other domains of Battleworld were returned to their former state after the defeat of Doom.

Eagle-eyed viewers watching X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Sanctuary - Part I" are in for a treat. When Cortez sounded Asteroid M's alarm X-Man Beast and Gambit leave their separate quarters, but only a second later another leaves Gambit's quarter...Joanna Cargill. I guess she fell for his New Orleans charm.

Secret Wars saw the return of X-Men: The Animated Series reality as one of the forty-one domains of Battleworld in Secret Wars. First released as an eight-part digital Infinite Comic the series was later reprinted as a four-issue printed series. Following it's success a second X-Men '92 series was released which saw the reality of Earth-92131 fully restored.

The Westchester Wars was a five-year long conflict when Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants declared war on humanity. Thanks to the X-Men's heroic actions the world finally learned not all mutants were a threat, realizing peaceful coexistence between homo sapiens and homo superior was possible. This coalition was more than Magneto could handle and as his anger grew so did his Brotherhood, until finally, total chaos erupted in Westchester.
