(Cable II#19 (fb) - BTS) - The time-travelling Genesis (Tyler Dayspring) took over the Dark Riders, adding mutants Lifeforce, Hurricane, Spyne, and Deadbolt to the team.

(Cable II#17) - In Egypt, Foxbat was hunted down by the new Dark Riders, including Gauntlet, Lifeforce, Hurricane, Deadbolt, and Spyne, who wanted to determine his worthiness; they soon killed him, with Hurricane holding him against the wall with wind. Later, with Barrage now, the Dark Riders hunted Caliban in the Morlock Tunnels, and they found a team of X-Men (Cable, Domino, Storm) there. During the fight, Hurricane tried to best Storm with his control over winds, but she overwhelmed him. Soon, Hard-Drive teleported the Dark Riders away, promising Gauntlet that he would be punished for engaging in battle with Cable against orders.

(Cable II#18) - In Egypt, Cable, Domino, Storm, and Caliban arrived in Egypt and began battling the Dark Riders, with Hurricane raising sandstorms to block the heroes until Storm's winds stopped him. Gauntlet nearly killed Hurricane for failing against Storm a second time, but Harddrive teleported the Riders away instead. The mutants pursued them back to the destroyed city of Akkaba, where Genesis was revealed as the leader of the Dark Riders.

(Cable II#19) - Hurricane was placed in stasis next to Foxbat, by Genesis.

(Wolverine II#93) - Genesis sent Lifeforce, Spyne, and Hurricane to apprehend Cyber and they broker Cyber out of jail.

(Wolverine: Origins#12 (fb) ) - Lifeforce, Spyne, and Hurricane broke Cyber out of jail.

(Wolverine II#94) - Hurricane, Spyne, and Lifeforce returned Cyber to Akkaba, where they were met by Jamil, an agent of Candra, and he led them forward into the citadel.

(X-Men Annual '95) - Genesis assembled the Dark Riders (Gauntlet, Hurricane, Lifeforce, Spyne, Deadbolt) to apprehend Jean Grey, so he could use her to read the mind of Faye Livingstone, an elderly woman who held secrets about the past of Mr. Sinister. Harddrive teleported the team, who kidnapped Jean after a brief battle with the Beast.

(Wolverine II#95) - Gauntlet, Hurricane, Spyne, Lifeforce, and Genesis watched Cyber battle with a Wolverine construct.

(Wolverine II#96) - Lifeforce, Spyne, and Hurricane helped Genesis place Cyber in an experimental chamber, where Cyber fought back, punching Hurricane out of the room until Hurricane used winds to blow Cyber into the room, locking the door behind him.

(Wolverine II#100 (fb) - BTS) - The Dark Riders gathered hundreds of sarcophagi and placed them in piles in a psychic ring around the tomb of Apoalypse. Genesis planned to revive the villain. Genesis also added Dirt Nap to the team.

(Wolverine II#99) - At the citadel in Akkaba, Gauntlet, Hurricane, and Deadbolt oversaw the transport of human civilians inside at Genesis' orders. Inside, Genesis apprehended Wolverine, and Hurricane joined the others into putting Wolverine in a containment unit. Genesis planned to use the Adamantium that had been removed from Cyber to implant on Wolverine's skeleton, then to erase Wolverine's memories and make him the leader of his Riders.

(Wolverine II#100) - Cannonball attacked but was easily defeated by the Riders, then the machine exploded, sending scraps of Adamantium across the room, killing both Lifeforce and Hurricane instantly.

(X-Force III#21 (fb) - BTS) - Hurricane, Spyne, and Deadbolt were revived by Selene on Genosha.

(X-Force III#21) - When the X-Men attacked, Hurricane, Spyne, and Deadbolt sparred with Dazzler and Psylocke.


(Uncanny X-Men IV#3 (fb) - BTS) - The Dark Riders reformed and sought to pursue their mission of culling the weak from the strong. Learning that M-Pox was killing mutants, they sought to kill mutant healers so that the mutants could truly be tested and only the strong would survive.

(Uncanny X-Men IV#1 (fb) - BTS) - The Dark Riders hunted down mutant healers Sister Salvation and Marc Dale, among others.

(Uncanny X-Men IV#3) - Harddrive teleported Barrage and Hurricane (unleashing his winds in a hospital) to Seattle to kill the mutant Triage, but Magneto and Psylocke were there to defend him. Magneto ripped Harddrive's tech to shreds, and Harddrive swiftly teleported the others away.

(Uncanny X-Men IV#4) - In Egypt, the X-Men (Archangel, Psylocke, M, Sabretooth) attacked, and Tusk and his Underlings, Gauntlet, Deadbolt, Hurricane, and Spyne fought back, with Hurricane blowing Sabretooth back with winds during the fight. During the fight, Tusk traded blows with M. The Dark Riders caved in their base and teleported away to go after Triage on Genosha, but Magneto was there to protect him.

(Uncanny X-Men IV#5) - Magneto hit Tusk and Deadbolt with a car while Spyne stabbed Triage and Psynapse locked down the healer's mind. After Magneto seemingly killed Psynapse and Spyne, the other X-Men (M, Sabretooth, Archangel) arrived, and savagely defeated the Dark Riders. As Hurricane cried out for Apocalypse, Archangel sliced Hurricane in half, then the X-Men blew up the Dark Riders on the remains of Genosha.
