History:

(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. Having 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 could, 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 him

(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.

Comments: Created by Rob Liefeld.

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.

Wolverine II#154 & 155 were reprinted in Major X #0 with remastered colors and this is where the images were taken from.

CLARIFICATIONS :
Geronimo Crowe has no known connections to:


Cargo

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.
