History:
(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Sanctuary - Part I" - BTS) - Peeper 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. Magneto invited all mutants, explaining a first exodus would take place near Genosha.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Sanctuary - Part I") - Eager to join Magneto and move to Asteroid M, Peeper quickly made his way to a local airport where large groups of mutants had gathered to buy a ticket to the African nation where the first exodus would take place. Peeper and several other mutants gathered on the African planes where Charles Xavier, Gambit and Beast of the X-Men had gathered hoping to persuade Magneto to stop his plan, fearing other nations would retaliate. Soon Magneto arrived with his transport welcoming the mutants and X-Men aboard. Instead of bringing the mutants directly to Asteroid M, Magneto first went to Genosha to free their enslaved mutants.

   Upon arrival Magneto urged the Genoshan mutants to cast off their bonds and join them, in a mighty show of force Peepers, Blockbuster, Shocker and the other mutants left the transport to form 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. Assisted by the Acolytes (a group of mutants pledging allegiance to Magneto's righteous cause) a fierce battle followed in which Peeper and the mutants quickly gained the upper hand, prompting the Genoshan magistrates to release a group of Sentinels to level the playing field. In the end Magneto, repowered by his Acolyte Fabian Cortez destroyed the Sentinels, forcing the Genoshan magistrates to flee and freed the Genoshan mutants.

   Finally arriving on Asteroid M, Peeper, Lifter and several of the Acolytes were 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.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Sanctuary - Part II") - Although Professor X and Beast successfully escaped, Gambit was taken prisoner by the Acolytes. Peeper, Lifter, Blockbuster and several other mutants called out for his blood when Cortez presented them with Gambit, the supposed assassin of Magneto. Sometime later 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 Peeper, Copycat, Mole and other mutants celebrated. Unbeknownst to Peeper and the others, a small strike team of X-Men arrived at Asteroid M to not only save Gambit but deactivate all of Asteroid M's active warheads. 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, Peeper and all other mutants were safely returned to the African planes, under the watchful eyes of MjNari and the Black Panther.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Secrets, Not Long Buried" - BTS) - Peeper moved to Skull Mesa, Nevada where Dr. Taylor Prescott had established a community where mutants could live in peace. However, the town was soon taken over by the villainous Solarr and his allies Chet Lambert and Toad after learning of it's underground goldmine. Dr. Taylor Prescott opposed the villains but was placed in suspended animation and Solarr soon had all of the town's residents living in fear by attacking anyone who questioned his authority, forcing some like Slither, Random, Forearm and Sunder to work in the goldmine.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Secrets, Not Long Buried" - BTS) - When the X-Man Cyclops came to Skull Mesa to meet his old friend Dr. Taylor Prescott he was confronted by Solarr and his allies. Through the following days Cyclops learned Solarr had taken over the city forcing the residents to live in fear. Determined to stop Solarr, a temporary depowered Cyclops fought back.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Secrets, Not Long Buried") - Peeper, Strobe, Reaper and several other mutants gathered at the town's square when Solarr openly confronted Cyclops. Solarr falsely claimed Cyclops was one of the subversives who wished to destroy their lives, something he'd warned the townspeople of before. Solarr continued, explaining that a crystal sculpture Cyclops was carrying was in fact a transmitter to summon his friends. Cyclops, who was bound to a large golden sculpture of Solarr with Toad's green muck urged the townsfolk to see Solarr for who he really was, a tyrant who held the innocent Dr. Taylor Prescott in the goldmine. Deciding to finally stand up to Solarr, one of the townsfolk, Tusk attacked Solarr and freed Cyclops. As a full fledged fight erupted other townsfolk like Lady Gardener and Dr. Darrell Tanaka helped Cyclops while others like Slither, Copycat, Arclight, Ape and Sunder stood with Solarr. Cyclops, repowered thanks to Tanaka used his optic blast on the crystal sculpture to take them out with a single blast. When Solarr was defeated the mutants that had sided with Solarr had a sudden change of heart, realizing what he'd put them through. Meanwhile Dr. Prescott had been freed and was reunited with Cyclops after which he told the X-Man they would deal with Solarr and his men in Skull Mesa.

On Earth-616, Peeper was part of Mutant Force along with Lifter, Slither and Shocker, all of whom appeared in X-Men: The Animated Series. However, Mutant Force's final member, Burner, got a much bigger speaking role as Byron Calley appeared to be an old friend of Gambit who became part of Magneto's trusty Acolytes.
