(X-Men II#100 (fb) - BTS) - Kilmer and the Neo lived peacefully for years until the High Evolutionary, influenced by Mr. Sinister switched off the X-gene in all of Earth's mutants, resulting in many Neo's death.
(X-Men II#100 - BTS) - Kilmer joined Domina and her Warclan in search of revenge against those responsible for their suffering and set her sights on the X-Men in the opening salvo of their war against humans and mutants.
(X-Men II#100) - Kilmer and the Warclan had made their way to the St. Michael's Church Complex in Brooklyn where Rax shot the X-Man Nightcrawler. Nightcrawler, however, sensed Rax's crossbow a split second before impact and teleported away although severely injured. Kilmer was present when Jaeger decided to go after the mutant and finish the kill while the group would stay behind and wait. However, not long after Jaeger was killed by Cecilia Reyes who tried to save Nightcrawler and inexplicably used what she thought to be a defensive shield to manifest spikes and kill the Neo.
(X-Men II#101 - BTS) - Kilmer was presumably present when Jaeger's body was recovered and Domina decided to make the St. Michael's Church Complex their stronghold.
(X-Men II#102) - Having located Cecilia Reyes and Nightcrawler within the complex the Warclan tried their best to kill the mutants when Kilmer suddenly sensed (see comments) the X-Men were about to arrive and warned Domina. Mere moments later the X-Men bursted through the wall, coming to save Nightcrawler and Cecilia Reyes. In an attempt to trap the X-Men inside the Church Complex Domina ordered Barbican to seal the building. Domina's plan, however, didn't completely work as Psylocke and Reyes managed to maintain an opening until the X-Men could escape. Only Reyes decided to stay behind to go and find Detective Jones who'd been merged with criminal Rufus Delgado.
(X-Men: Giant-Size#1 - BTS) - Because most Neo lost their powers after M-Day, no live Neo was born for over a year. When new mutants began surfacing, the Guardian Clan invaded Utopia to learn how mutants restarted their race, but the enigmatic Evolutionaries apparently disintegrated them and all other Neo worldwide to protect mutantkind.
Comments: Created by Chris Claremont (writer), Leinil Francis Yu (pencils), Mark Morales (inks).
Right before the X-Men came bursting through the walls to rescue their team-members Kilmer warned Domina they had company. Perhaps this means Kilmer's powers were heightened senses and/or some low-level telepathy to sense an incoming assault.
It's been unrevealed if Kilmer was amongst those recruited by Magneto to join his army on Genosha to consequently be murdered when Cassandra Nova's Wild Sentinels decimated the population.
The Neo received a profile in the X-Men - Earth's Mutant Heroes (2011). The Neo were a society of Homo sapiens superior, an evolutionary offshoot of humanity born with the mutant X-gene, which gave them superhuman abilities. The Neo lived in seclusion for many generations and believed they were superior to humans and other mutants.
