(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Secrets, Not Long Buried" - BTS) - Reaper 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 soon had all of the town's residents living in fear by attacking anyone who questioned his authority, forcing some of them to work in the goldmine.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Secrets, Not Long Buried" - BTS) - When the X-Man Cyclops had come 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") - Reaper, Sunder, Random 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 Arclight, Slither, Copycat, Ape and Sunder stood with Solarr, Reaper was one of the few who abstained from fighting. 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 Dr. Prescott was quickly freed and was reunited with Cyclops after which he told the X-Man they would deal with Solarr and his men in Skull Mesa.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Graduation Day" - BTS) - Reaper moved to Genosha where former slave-workers had built their own civilization who viewed Magneto as their leader.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Graduation Day") - When mutant uprisings were seen throughout the world following the televised attack on Charles Xavier over a "mutant containment bill", Reaper and other mutants impatiently wondered when their enigmatic leader Magneto would finally lead them into war against humankind. Then, moments later Magneto addressed his people and calling all mutants from around the world to stand beside them.

   However, the X-Men also picked up the message which led them to send a small strike team consisting of Cyclops, Jean Grey and Wolverine to try and persuade Magneto to stop. During the night when Reaper was sleeping, Sunfire and Feral noticed suspicious movement in the encampment, discovering the X-Men. However, because it was night, both mutants didn't recognize the mutant heroes and inadvertently woke up the sleeping mutants who gathered round the X-Men. But just then Magneto appeared again which allowed the X-Men to sneak away. The X-Men successfully reached Magneto after which they revealed Charles Xavier was dying and could be saved if he'd help them send a message to Shi'ar empress Lilandra. Determined to help Xavier, Magneto called off the impending mutant war and left with the X-Men.

On Earth-616, Reaper is part of the Mutant Liberation Front and although the group itself didn't appear in X-Men: The Animated Series, Forearm and Strobe did as well as former leader Stryfe.

When, in 2015's Secret Wars, the Multiverse was destroyed following the incursions of planets it appeared as if Reality-92131 was drafted onto Battleworld as the Westchester domain. All Earth-92131 profiles on the Marvel Appendix reflected that information, however, this has since been debunked with the news that the original X-Men: The Animated Series will receive a brand new season to pick up where the original series ended. As such the reality seen in two volumes of X-Men '92 (2015-2017) now have their own reality-designation. The X-Men '92: House of XCII 2022 series was inspired by both the animated series and Hickman's House of X run but is its own separate reality. Nearly thirty years after X-Men: The Animated Series first debuted the new season will appear on Disney+ in fall 2023.
