(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Slave Island" - BTS) - Along many other mutants, Warpath was apprehended and imprisoned on Genosha. Outfitted with power-dampening collars to prevent them from using their mutant abilities the imprisoned mutants were made to work as slave-workers to complete a dam which would power a Sentinel factory.
(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Slave Island") - Warpath, Avalanche, Rictor and other slave-workers were in for a shock when three of the X-Men: Storm, Gambit and Jubilee were also imprisoned and forced to work alongside them. However, when the Magistrates deactivated the collars Storm immediately tried to escape and was quickly rendered immobile by a Sentinel and placed in the "box" (isolation). Not long after, the slave-workers once again stopped work when the Magistrates noticed a fire in the nearby forest (courtesy of time traveler Cable), to be safe all slave-workers were returned to their cells.
That night, the slave-workers were woken by the optimistic Jubilee, who escaped her cell and urged the mutants to join an uprising. Warpath and the others refused, believing they would be released when the work on the dam was finished. However, the following morning morale had shifted as the mutants told Jubilee they would join the uprising. Sadly Jubilee's uprising failed when she proved unable to deactivate the power-dampening collars.
(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Slave Island" - BTS) - The following day, Gambit acquired the power-dampening collar's key, freed his friends and together agreed to free the slave-workers.
(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Slave Island") - Warpath, Caliban, Mystique and many other slave-workers were shocked when the X-Men returned, successfully deactivating the power-dampening collars. Freed, Warpath and the others joined the X-Men in their fight against the Magistrates and Sentinels. Having defeated them, Jubilee urged the former slaves to help them deal with the Sentinel factory. Sunfire, speaking for the former slaves refused reminding her of their last failed uprising and explained they would take over Genosha as a whole after which they left. To deal with the Sentinel factory, Storm then summoned a powerful storm causing the dam to collapse and destroy the factory.
(Secret Wars#1 - BTS) - When the Multiverse was destroyed following the incursions of planets, Doctor Doom, using the Beyonders' powers, created Battleworld a patchwork of different realities. Among those domains was Earth-92131, now called the Westchester domain, ruled by former President Kelly who was appointed by Doom to become the domain's Baron.
(X-Men '92 I#2 - BTS) - Following the Westchester Wars, the Bureau of Super-Powers established the Clear Mountain Institute, a rehab facility designed to help mutants re-enter society. The institute was led by Cassandra Nova, a female clone of Charles Xavier who was used as a host by the Shadow King. The Shadow King had become aware of other X-Men inhabiting Battleworld's domains who were plagued by hardship and catastrophe, fearing that their domain was too fragile he set out to ensure their survival by changing the X-Men and other dangerous mutants into proper role models as to not attract the wrath of Doom and replace Kelly as Baroness of Westchester in the process.
(X-Men '92 I#2 - BTS) - Warpath was one of the many mutants to join the Clear Mountain Institute to live in harmony in their isolated community. Warpath supposedly went through the institutes psychotherapy "The Mind Field".
(X-Men '92 I#2) - Warpath was seen talking to Firestar and Havok when the X-Men received a grand tour of the facility by Cassandra Nova.
(Secret Wars#9 - BTS) - Earth-92131 along with all other domains of Battleworld were returned to their former state in the defeat of Doom.

Secret Wars saw the return of X-Men The Animates Series reality as one of the forty-one domains of Battleworld in Secret Wars. First released as an eight-part digital Infinite Comic the series was later reprinted as a four-issue printed series. Following it's success a second X-Men '92 was released which saw the reality of Earth-92131 fully restored.
The Westchester Wars was a five-year long conflict when Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants declared war on humanity. Thanks to the X-Men's heroic actions the world finally learned not all mutants were are a threat, realizing peaceful coexistence between homo sapiens and homo superior was possible. This coalition was more than Magneto could handle and as his anger grew so did his Brotherhood, until finally, total chaos erupted in Westchester.
