Powers/Abilities: "Snikt the Clown" was an
entertaining adventurer with a reputation for overcoming the odds to
achieve heroic results. Augmented with an Admantium-laced skeleton, he
likely had retractable claws hidden in his
(Exiles I#85 (fb) - BTS) - Brother Mutant, a single
entity formed from the merging of five mutants, threatened Earth-127.
This prompted the multiversal-meddling Timebreakers, using distorted logic, to assemble
squads of alternate universe Wolverines to take him down. One such squad included "Snikt
the Clown" from Earth Earth-5116. The Mesmero component of Brother
Mutant easily overcame each Wolverine sent against the composite
villain and they became part of a vast army of Wolverines controlled by
(Exiles I#86) - One new squad of alternate Wolverines, aided by the displaced Exiles, led to Brother Mutant's downfall. The death of Brother Mutant released all Wolverines, including "Snikt", from the villain's control, leaving the clown momentarily disoriented, then surprised at seeing the young James Howlett (from Earth-1880) slicing him up.

Exiles returned all the surviving Wolverines to their home dimensions.

The intro summary page for Exiles I#86 identified
that all of Brother mutants's thralls were Adamantium enhanced.
"Snikt the Clown" was not named in-story; his name is
derived from the badge on his braces. Given the large "X" on his belt
buckle, it's fairly safe to say he was part of his reality's X-Men (or
maybe a circus-themed X-team).
I think it would be interesting/creepy if his world
consisted entirely of clowns. And maybe that Earth's Obnoxio was the
only non-clown. Presumably Snikt is wearing clown make-up ... or not...
And, of course, "snikt" is the distinctive sound that
Wolverine's claws make when they unsheathe from his forearms.
