(Wolverine II#155 (fb) - BTS) - Geronimo Crowe was an
agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage
Logistics Directorate) who came across the deeply covert and
anti-mutant activities of the Watchtower headed by the Administrator.
some form of connection with the Administrator (calling him father),
Crowe left S.H.I.E.L.D.
and sought to free as many mutants captured by the Watchtower as he
gaining super-powered allies (the cyborg Shooter, teleporter Cargo and
the giant Sentinel Hardwire) along the way. Tracking Watchtower
activities, he discovered they had captured Wolverine and went to free
(Wolverine II#154) - Alongside Shooter, Cargo and
Hardwire, Crowe spied Wolverine through a skylight at a Watchtower base
being tortured and blood drained for its healing properties by the Administrator. Cargo provided a
spatial breach that let Crowe, Shooter and Hardwire into the room, where
they fought Watchtower forces and freed Wolverine.
(Wolverine II#155) - Confused but thankful for
allies, Wolverine joined them fighting against the Administrator and
Watchtower soldiers. Only a hologram, the Administrator vanished. While
honored to meet Wolverine, Crowe still chided Wolverine for being part
of the X-Men who dealt only with obvious threats. They overcame the
rest of the soldiers but then encountered Deadpool seeking to escape
with Siryn's comatose body, recovering from a past injury. A brief
fracas between Wolverine and Deadpool led to Siryn awakening healthy
with powers returned, surprising Crowe. Apparently healed from
technology derived from Wolverine's blood with its advanced healing
factor, Crowe maintained that the Watchtower still had to be brought down and
invited Wolverine to join a subsequent raid. Crowe asked for trust but
wouldn't reveal more. The following raid proved fruitless; Crowe stood
by as Wolverine vowed to bring the Watchtower down.

Liefeld is revisiting the Watchtower with Major X. Hopefully we'll see more of the mystery of Crowe unfolding as the story of Major X unfolds.

Geronimo Crowe has no known connections to:
Cargo generates spatial breaches through which others
can travel; it appears that these breaches are achieved within line of
sight. After spying bound and tortured Wolverine through a skylight,
Cargo helped transport teammates Geronimo Crowe, Shooter and Hardwire
into the prison room, where they fought the Administrator and
his Watchtower forces after freeing Wolverine.
The origin of Cargo's powers is unrevealed
and he displayed no fighting skills, disappearing after transporting
Crowe and his fighters to free Wolverine.
