First Appearance: X-Men I#2 (November, 1963)

Powers/Abilities: Vanisher possesses the mutant ability to teleport himself (as well as people and objects in his immediate vicinity) to any location, passing through other dimensions to do so. Vanisher's power is psionic in nature and happens almost instantaneously, with no energy signature. Vanisher also has an extrasensory instinct that stops him from teleporting into a solid object. Vanisher is able to open small teleportation holes through which he can pass only a hand to retrieve something, and he has considered using this to remove the heart of potential targets. While the limits of his dimension traveling ability are unrevealed, he has at times spent hours, days, or weeks in other dimensions. For a time, Vanisher carried a gun that fired sleeping gas and energy blasts. The Vanisher is somewhat agile, able to leap through the air and grab things while using his powers. Vanisher briefly reprogrammed Sentinels to follow his will, and for a brief time he manipulated some residual Darkforce energy to form constructs. Vanisher's powers can be blocked by the Darkforce energy. Vanisher has run a drug empire of MGH, and he has trained teenagers to act as pickpockets and thieves.

Height: 6'2"
Weight: 210 lbs.

(Fallen Angels I#7 (fb) - BTS) - When Telford Porter's mutant powers first manifested, he found himself teleporting away randomly with no control of his abilities.

(X-Force I#70 (fb) - BTS) - Growing up, Vanisher loved the television show Taxi.

(X-Men I#2 (fb) - BTS) - Calling himself the Vanisher and designing an elaborate costume for himself, Porter began stealing things, using his powers for quick escapes.

(X-Men I#2) - Vanisher taunted a few cops, letting them know of his plans to rob a bank, then he teleported inside the bank, where he taunted the manager Smithers before disappearing with a large amount of cash. Later, Vanisher appeared in the Pentagon and, after bypassing guards, confronted generals, including Hendershoot and Fredericks, promising to return in a few days to steal the country's continental defense plans. When news of the Vanisher's crimes hit the newspaper, members of the criminal underworld flocked to him, promising to serve him in his crimes. Vanisher returned to steal the plans, teleporting them outside, but he found armed guards and the X-Men waiting to fight him. During the ensuing fight, Angel flew Vanisher into the air, knocking the plans to the Beast below, but Vanisher stole them again. Cyclops hit the plans with an optic blast, then Marvel Girl used telekinesis to keep them away from Vanisher, but Vanisher used sleeping gas to knock her out. When Iceman hit Vanisher's hand with ice, Vanisher teleported somewhere warmer to melt the ice, then he teleported away with the plans. Vanisher contacted the government, offering to return the plans for ten million dollars, or he would sell them to the Communists. Days later, Vanisher returned to the Pentagon with his army of soldiers to get his money, but found the X-Men waiting. Professor X used his telepathy to erase Vanisher's knowledge of his own identity and powers, then the X-Men defeated his army.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe I#12 (fb) - BTS) - Vanisher was taken into custody until his memories returned, then he escaped.

(X-Men I#37 (fb) - BTS) - The Mutant-Master recruited several mutants to join his cause, proposing that they first defeat the X-Men, and then drive the humans to war with each other. Once the Eastern and Western worlds were at war, their group of mutants would step in as the third factor to rule the world. Vanisher joined Factor Three alongside Blob, Mastermind, the Changeling, and Unus the Untouchable, under the leadership of the Mutant-Master.

(Thunderbolts I#55 (fb)) - Vanisher and Ogre ambushed young mutant Sonny Baredo. Ogre put a control helmet on him after Vanisher knocked him unconscious with his sleeping gas gun.

(Thunderbolts I#33 (fb) - BTS) - Factor Three manipulated the Ogre into completing an assignment for them, but they were furious when he failed, and ordered him to await orders.

(X-Men I#37) - Factor Three worked together to lure the X-Men into a trap then attacked them with robots. Vanisher and the others, keeping their captives Professor X and Banshee, put the X-Men on trial. The Vanisher was the first to confront the teens with their crimes, like erasing his memories, and Factor Three declared the X-Men were guilty, and they were sentenced to death. The X-Men managed to escape and prepared to fight back against Factor Three.

(X-Men I#38) - Marvel Girl and Cyclops confronted Vanisher and the Blob, with armed guards, just as Factor Three was ready to instigate world war. Vanisher ordered his men to open fire on the mutants, then he tried to hit them with his gas gun, but Angel upset the gun and turned it back on Vanisher, who grew briefly dizzy before teleporting away, leaving Blob behind.

(X-Men I#39) - As the X-Men attacked the Mutant-Master, Vanisher stood with Unus and Mastermind against them. Professor X freed himself and exposed the Mutant-Master as an enemy of all mutants, and the Mutant-Master responded by telling his robots to attack all mutants there. Baffled, Vanisher did his best to fight back against the robots until Banshee freed himself and attacked, exposing the Mutant-Master as an alien bent on conquering Earth. As the Mutant-Master died, the base self-destructed, and Vanisher teleported to safety.

(X-Men I#59-60 (fb), Avengers I#102-103 (fb) - all BTS) - Vanisher was apprehended by Sentinels and kept in stasis.

(X-Men I#60) - After the Sentinels were defeated by the X-Men, Chalmers released the prisoners. Vanisher woke up and saw other prisoners there, including Banshee, Larry Trask, Mesmero, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Blob, Toad, Mastermind, the Living Pharoah, and Unus the Untouchable. Robert Chalmers helped them learn what had happened.

(Avengers I#103 (fb)) - Blob, Vanisher and Mastermind were less than thankful and immediately tried to go after Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, but Toad got in their way. When Chalmers told the villains that the authorities were probably already on the way the villains decided to leave.

(Thunderbolts I#33 (fb) - BTS) - Factor Three briefly reformed and stole technology from Xavier, giving them intel on all the mutants Xavier knew of.

(Thunderbolts I#33 (fb)) - Vanisher and the others discussed their plans but soon disbanded.

(X-Men I#100 (fb)) - Vanisher was apprehended by the government and taken to the Sentinels Orbital Base where he was experimented on by Steven Lang.

(X-Men I#96-100, Classic X-Men#8/2 - all BTS) - Vanisher remained imprisoned on the station until the X-Men defeated Lang and his X-Sentinels.

(Champions I#17 (fb) - BTS) - Vanisher woke up in the station and found the Sentinels defunct. Putting together a plan for revenge against the X-Men, he reprogrammed the Sentinels so that they would target those he selected and then sent them out to find the mutants. The Sentinels brought back Blob, Unus, and Lorelei, who the Vanisher convinced to work with him. Still unable to find the X-Men, Vanisher heard about Angel and Iceman being part of the Champions.

(Champions I#17) - Vanisher sent Sentinels after Unus, Blob, and Lorelei, and they went rushing to the Champions (Black Widow, Hercules) for help. Vanisher watched from the shadows as the team battled Sentinels. Angel, Iceman, Ghost Rider, and Darkstar closed in, but they were soon knocked out by the Sentinels. Darkstar freed herself as the others woke up. When Vanisher tried to escape, Darkstar trapped him using the Darkforce, so he could only teleport half-way away.

(Bizarre Adventures#27/4 (fb) - BTS) - Vanisher was trapped in his half teleported state for months.

(Bizarre Adventures#27/4) - The X-Men detected Vanisher's distress through Cerebro, and Nightcrawler tried to teleport Vanisher free. The two of them passed through several alternate dimensions, where they saw counterparts of themselves, then they found themselves stranded and separated in one dimension. As warrior women approached Vanisher, he realized his powers were still cancelled out by the Darkforce, and he failed at his attempts to create weapons out of the Darkforce energy. For the next few days, Vanisher was pampered and fed by the women, and he pocketed a few jewels. Nightcrawler found Vanisher and told him they needed each other's powers in order to make it back to Earth, but Vanisher grabbed a blade, not wanting to go back. After Nightcrawler easily defeated Vanisher, who tried running away and fighting back with the Darkforce, but he still couldn't control it. When a monster rushed at them, Vanisher finally willingly returned to Earth with Nightcrawler, but he appeared naked in front of Storm, Cyclops, Colossus, and Wolverine. Embarrassed, Vanisher disappeared.

(Secret Wars II#7 - BTS) - The demon Bitterhorn contacted 99 super-villains, including Vanisher, to form a team he called the Legion Accursed.

(Secret Wars II#7) - Mephisto summoned the Legion Accursed to fight the Beyonder for him, but the Thing interceded, defeating many of them.

(Fallen Angels I#8 (fb) - BTS) - Wanting an easy life away from super heroes, Vanisher set a goal to create a safe home for teenagers who would then steal for him and give him a comfortable life.

(X-Factor I#11 (fb) - BTS) - Vanisher recruited several teenage girls, including one named Boom-Boom who had mutant powers, offering them food and shelter if they stole for him and brought him the money.

(X-Factor I#11) - Boom-Boom returned with her stolen goods, but put a small time bomb in the satchel as she handed it to Vanisher. Avoiding the blast by teleporting, Vanisher scolded Boom-Boom, so she stormed away, leaving him behind.

(X-Factor I#12) - Vanisher followed Boom-Boom as she stole again, and he demanded his portion. Vanisher tried using threats and then charm to convince Boom-Boom to come back, but she had called X-Factor (the original X-Men posing as mutant hunters) to come and pick him up. Vanisher hid but, after apologizing, Boom-Boom demanded he take her with him. When she refused to blow X-Factor up, Vanisher left her behind and teleported away.

(Fallen Angels I#3 (fb) - BTS) - The Vanisher set up the Beat Street Club, a fun hideout for the kids who wanted to steal for him in return for housing. He began calling his teenage thieves the Fallen Angels and considered himself their leader. Among his recruits were Chance (a tough street kid) and Ariel (a mutant teleporter).

(Fallen Angels I#2) - Vanisher approached Sunspot, Warlock, and Gomi in the streets, working to convince them that he was a sympathetic ally as he tried to recruit them to his team. Vanisher was shocked when Siryn and Multiple Man attacked, the duo assuming that Vanisher had been attacking Sunspot and the others. Vanisher disappeared, and Ariel and Chance soon led Susnpot, Gomi, Warlock, and Multiple Man to Beat Street, though Siryn was left behind.

(Fallen Angels I#3) - Vanisher welcomed all of the new recruits to Beat Street, and he saw Gomi's mutant lobsters, Bill and Don, before ordering Chance and Ariel to get food for everyone. They soon brought back McNulty's fast food for everyone. When Gomi used his psychic powers to clear the table, Vanisher yelled, and the lobsters pinched his foot to defend Gomi. When Ariel used her powers to bring Boom-Boom to the team, Vanisher claimed that it'd been his idea to bring her home. After Siryn joined them, Ariel led the team through a door for an adventure.

(Fallen Angels I#4) - When a dinosaur attacked, Vanisher disappeared, leaving the others. He wondered if he should have protected the kids, but reassured himself that they were capable, but after seeing a lizard, Vanisher disappeared again. He hid in the trees until Ariel and Chance found him, and Vanisher begged for mercy until he realized it was the kids and not a threat. Rejoining the others, he made sure to take the first bites of a prepared meal (after having Gomi test to make sure it wasn't poisoned), then was shocked to see that Ariel had invited Devil Dinosaur and Moon Boy to join the team.

(Fallen Angels I#5) - Back at the Beat Street Club, Vanisher was frustrated when Boom-Boom blew up a time bomb and messed up the headquarters, so he ordered the others to clean it up. Vanisher, distressed about the idea of having to feed Devil, sent the Fallen Angels out in pairs to forage for supplies. Vanisher was pleased when Chance and Ariel brought food back. Devil Dinosaur accidentally stepped on Bill the lobster, killing him.

(Fallen Angels I#6 (fb) - BTS) - The Fallen Angels held a funeral for Bill.

(Fallen Angels I#6) - Vanisher enjoyed food after the funeral, but when a fight broke out among the Fallen Angels, he teleported away. Returning, Vanisher expressed his belief that Beat Street was no longer safe, believing their enemies were closing in, so Ariel took the team to her home of Coconut Grove for a getaway.

(Fallen Angels I#7) - In Coconut Grove, Vanisher and the others were given makeovers. Vanisher later called a meeting of his team and he teleported away briefly when conflict started. When he returned, he explained that he'd lost control of his powers briefly, and they realized that Chance was a mutant who could inhibit or boost the powers of others. Unipar and the denizens of Coconut Grove announced their intention to drain all of the mutants of their powers, and they apprehended the Fallen Angels.

(Fallen Angels I#8) - Kept in confinement while waiting for his mutant powers to be drained, Vanisher wondered why he ever started the Fallen Angels in the first place. The Angels broke free and worked together to distract the Coconut Grove operatives until they could free Boom-Boom, who had been taken to have her powers drained. In the end, back on Earth, Sunspot and Warlock left the Fallen Angels, who stayed together.

(Fantastic Four I#335) - Reacting to a machine made by Doctor Doom that placed suggestions in the minds of several criminals, Vanisher attacked the Fantastic Four alongside the Eel, Thunderball, and Mad Dog at Congress. Vanisher quickly teleported away.

(New Warriors I#29) - The Vanisher went to see the New Warriors do a live broadcast on television, hoping to run into Silhouette, but she wasn't there. As the Vanisher departed, he was overwhelmed by the Darkforce and teleported away against his will.

(New Warriors I#33 (fb) - BTS) - Vanisher was held in darkness by Darkling alongside Black Mamba, Quagmire, and Ecstasy.

(New Warriors I#33) - Doctor Strange found Vanisher and the others in the darkness.

(New Warriors I#34) - Darkling forced Vanisher and the others to battle the New Warriors, and Vanisher was hit with Spider-Man's webbing during the fight. Later, Darkling was defeated.

(Web of Spider-Man I#98 (fb) - BTS) - Vanisher joined up with a group of disconnected criminals to form the New Enforcers in the aftermath of the Kingpin's fall from power in New York City. They hired the Foreigner to assassinate their competitor Blood Rose.

(Web of Spider-Man I#98) - The New Enforcers heard from the Foreigner that things were progressing.

(Web of Spider-Man I#99) - Vanisher joined the New Enforcers in fighting Spider-Man when he opposed them.

(Web of Spider-Man I#100) - Before Spider-Man attacked him, Vanisher teleported Eel and Blitz somewhere safe. Vanisher joined Thermite, Eel, Plant-Man, and Tangle to attack Blood Rose directly, but Spider-Man intervened, wearing a new silver suit. The New Enforcers were soon defeated.

(Sensational She-Hulk I#59 (fb) - BTS) - Incognito the Vanisher committed an armored car holdup, but got caught by the police. Nobody realized who he was and he ended up in a regular prison.

   Sheila Salzman was appointed as his lawyer, but Vanisher disappeared from his cell before the trial.

   Salzman appeared at the trial without her client to tell the judge that he had vanished from his cell. She-Hulk looked at the file of the criminal and recognized him as the Vanisher.

(X-Force I#70 (fb) - BTS) - Vanisher stopped to explore one of the dimensions he sometimes passed through when he teleported, but he soon found himself overwhelmed by a group of cute creatures who easily turned savage. Vanisher discovered they wanted him to tell stories, and so he kept telling them story after story, unable to escape.

(X-Force I#69) - Vanisher read a storybook about his first adventure against the X-Men to the rabid creatures. When Warpath arrived, seeking to recruit Vanisher for Sledge, the creatures attacked.

(X-Force I#70) - After having a conversation with an entity posing as Coyote, Warpath's childhood pet, Vanisher told Warpath how to keep the creatures at bay by telling stories.

(X-Force I#71 (fb)) - Warpath activated a jet pack and grabbed Vanisher, escaping from the creatures. Vanisher took them home and was delivered to Sledge.

(X-Force I#81 (fb) - BTS) - Sledge led Vanisher and Risque to Hawaii to steal the artifact, the Heart of Pele, but they found it guarded by the dangerous Lava Men. Vanisher and Risque fled, but Sledge was apprehended. Vanisher then grabbed the Heart of Pele and teleported away, returning to a favorite hotel of his.

(X-Force I#81) - As Vanisher contemplated getting in touch with A.I.M. to get more work, he noticed a beautiful redhead at the bar and flirted with her only to realize it was Siryn, and she scrambled his inner ear with a scream while Sunspot retrieved the Heart of Pele. They returned Vanisher to Sledge and X-Force, then gave the Heart of Pele back to the Lava People. As the goddess Pele appeared, Vanisher teleported away with Sledge.

(Uncanny X-Men Annual 2001 (fb) - BTS) - Vanisher set up a lucrative new business, employing scientists to extract genetic material, specifically spinal bone marrow, from mutants, including a giant mutant (who Vanisher calls a "fifth cousin") who was kept in seclusion, to create drugs, called Designer Genes, that would grant temporary powers to those who used them. Vanisher began working to eliminate other drug cartels that he considered competition. Calling himself "el Hombre Que Desaparace," or the Man Who Disappears, he recruited former Hydra and A.I.M. agents into working for him.

(Uncanny X-Men Annual 2001) - In Cuba, Vanisher bragged to his employees about taking out the rival Alvarez cartel, even as more genetic material was extracted from the giant. When Iceman and Wolverine infiltrated the cartel, Vanisher recognized them immediately and he shot Wolverine multiple times to contain him. Placing Iceman in an oven to hopefully kill him, Vanisher ordered his men to get an Adamantium drill bit so they could take spinal fluid from Wolverine. Archangel, Nightcrawler, Chamber, and Stacy X soon attacked, and Vanisher had the giant awakened to hold them off, but the giant was easily defeated. The X-Men cornered the Vanisher, shocked at the size of his organization, but the Vanisher simply teleported away rather than fight them.

(Uncanny X-Men I#408) - After a group of teenagers overdosed on Designer Genes, the X-Men began planning a corporate takeover of Vanisher's drug organization. Vanisher appeared before a group of men using his drugs, stating they worked for him now.

(Uncanny X-Men I#409) - Vanisher instructed his employees, including Mr. Finch, to prepare reports on the business assets and plans for him. Stacy X entered, demonstrating her pheromone powers against Finch and the others, then she offered to form a business relationship with Vanisher, telling him about the X-Ranch. At the X-Ranch, Stacy X used her pheromones to keep Vanisher sedated for two weeks. When he finally came to, he was furious, and Vanisher reluctantly agreed to meet with Archangel at Tavern on the Green. Vanisher bantered for a bit, but soon realized that Archangel had bought out his drug trade, putting him out of business. When Vanisher tried to teleport away, Iceman froze Vanisher from behind, then he did the same to patrons in the room who shot up with Designer Genes, stopping them swiftly.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#589 (fb)) - Vanisher hung out at the Bar With No Name.

(X-Force III#8 (fb) - BTS) - Vanisher set up a series of safe houses in Japan.

(X-Force III#9 (fb) - BTS) - Vanisher was hired by a mysterious group to steal a vial of the Legacy Virus, and was ordered to return it to the Kitakyushu Smelting Plant.

(X-Force III#7 (fb)) - Vanisher broke in to a facility in Japan and stole a vial of the Legacy Virus.

(X-Force III#9 (fb)) - Vanisher returned to his safe house, where the Marauders (Harpoon, Arclight, Vertigo, Sabretooth) attacked him. He teleported away, having dropped the vial.

(X-Force III#8) - In Tokyo, members of X-Force cornered Vanisher in an attempt to grab the virus, but he easily teleported away. Landing in one of his safe houses, he found Wolverine waiting, and Vanisher was stabbed. He moved to another safe house, where Archangel slashed him with metal wings. In a third safe house, X-23 stabbed him again. Finally, in the fourth, Elixir healed Vanisher, then Domino explained that he'd been killed and then healed. Vanisher teleported to a doctor, discovering that Elixir had also given him an inoperable brain tumor. Vanisher went back to X-Force, who told him to surrender the virus or they would let him die.

(X-Force III#9) - After Wolverine sliced open his nose, Vanisher revealed that he'd lost the vial, and X-Force told him that he'd be helping them find the Marauders. He took X-Force to the Smelting Plant, where mutiple clones of the Marauders (including Riptide) attacked, and Vanisher was shocked to learn that Elixir was hesitant to hurt anyone, given that he'd planted a tumor in Vanisher's brain. Just then, soldiers of the Right revealed themselves.

(X-Force III#10) - Vanisher teleported away, leaving X-Force behind. Later, they apprehended him, threatening bodily harm if he ever abandoned them again.

(X-Force III#11) - Returning to the Angel's home in Colorado (where Wolfsbane waited), Vanisher and the others saw Warpath return from a mission, telling them about the threat of Eli Bard and his connections to villain Selene. Feeling the threats were too much, Vanisher threatened to abandon the team and take his chances with the tumor.

(Dark Reign Files#1 - BTS) - Quasimodo did some research on Vanisher for Norman Osborn, who wrote about the Vanisher in his reports to the government.

(X-Force III#12) - X-Force forced Vanisher to take them on a mission to Alcatraz, and they laughed when X-23 cut his ear off to make him. They discussed how someone was weaponizing mutants, like Beautiful Dreamer, with a variant of the Legacy Virus. When Vanisher complained, they threatened to cut his other ear off. Expecting another mutant to be infected and used as a weapon, X-Force broke into teams for surveillance, and Vanisher was sent to Providence, Rhode Island, with Warpath, who wasn't interested when Vanisher suggested they go to a brothel in Portugal instead.

(X-Force III#13) - X-Force learned that the Leper Queen had been the one weaponizing mutants to kill humans, but Cyclops had a new mission for them, to go after Cable, who had taken Hope Summers, the new mutant messiah that was meant to save the species from extinction. They were given armbands to travel through time if Cable was located. Vanisher initially refused, but was reminded of the tumor once again. Vanisher argued that X-Force, for what they were doing to him, were worse villains than he ever was, but they reminded him that his drugs had killed kids. X-Force closed in on the Sapien League, just as Leper Queen seemingly killed Boom-Boom. Just then, the future bands were activated and X-Force was pulled into the timestream.

(X-Force/Cable: Messiah War#1) - X-Force landed in New York City in the year 2973, on Earth-80521, where Vanisher found himself unable to teleport just before he was shot in the neck by the future Deadpool. Elixir narrowly saved Vanisher's life, then the team rushed forward to find Cable and Hope.

(X-Force III#24 (fb) - BTS) - Elixir removed Vanisher's tumor without telling him.

(Cable II#13) - X-Force, with Deadpool-80521, Cable, and Hope, saw Stryfe's soldiers close in on them.

(X-Force III#14) - Unable to teleport as the soldiers opened fire on X-Force, Vanisher was ordered by Wolverine to get Elixir and Hope to safety, and he eagerly ran away with them. X-Force survived, and Cable drew a gun on Vanisher, telling him to never touch Hope again. During a quiet moment, Vanisher asked Elixir to remove his tumor, but Elixir refused. Stryfe confronted the team, kidnapping Hope.

(Cable II#14) - Vanisher, X-Force, Cable, and Cable-80521 planned how to rescue Hope, soon attacking Stryfe's home base.

(X-Force III#15) - As the team continued fighting Stryfe's soldiers, Vanisher grew extremely annoyed with Deadpool-80521 just before he vomited, seemingly overwhelmed by the symptoms from the tumor.

(Cable II#15) - Working with X-23, Deadpool-80521, and Domino, Vanisher found an elderly Kiden Nixon, a mutant whose power was being used to keep them trapped in the future, unable to return to their present. Vanisher argued that they should kill Nixon to save themselves, but they refused. Then the 24-hour limit on their time bracelets ran out.

(X-Force III#16) - Vanisher felt sick when the time devices wouldn't work. Feeling they had no choice, Domino shot Kiden Nixon in the head. Vanisher found his powers active again, and he returned to the present day.

(X-Force III#21) - In Monsanto, Portugal, Vanisher woke up with three women in his bed and he began coughing blood. Realizing the tumor was growing worse, he teleported to find X-Force, and landed in the middle of a massive battle where Selene had reanimated dead mutants to attack them. After evading the summoned image of Death (through the powers of Tarot), Vanisher was ordered by Cyclops and Domino to get Emma Frost to safety. They were soon attacked by a Selene-controlled Banshee. Vanisher teleported to Doctor Nemesis' lab to find an unconscious Elixir alongside Wolfsbane and Hrimhari.

(X-Force III#22) - Vanisher stood by while Doctor Nemesis tended to the others.

(X-Force III#23) - Vanisher saw Doctor Nemesis tend to Wolfsbane, when she went into cardiac arrest. When Elixir revived, Vanisher asked for help with the tumor again, but Elixir focused on Wolfsbane, who was distressed to learn that Hrimhari had sacrificed himself (to Hela) to save her, and that she'd lost a baby. Vanisher again asked for the tumor to be removed, promising to keep helping the team if he was healed, but Wolverine and X-Force arrived, ordering the tumor to be left in as they needed Vanisher to take them to Genosha.

(X-Force Annual III#1/2) - Vanisher joined a group of X-Men (Cyclops, Domino, Loa, Emma Frost) in battling a group of reanimated Acolytes (Fabian Cortez, Delgado, Mellencamp) and Hellions (Beef, Bevatron, Roulette, Tarot).

(X-Force III#24) - Vanisher teleported X-Force to Genosha, and Wolfsbane grabbed him, angry he'd brought her along. The team was soon overwhelmed by the army of the undead surrounding Selene's castle, and Vanisher demanded again that Elixir heal him, and Elixir revealed that he'd already removed the tumor. Vanisher wondered why he had vomited recently, and Elixir told him it was likely due to Vanisher's syphilis. As the team rushed forward to battle, they expected Vanisher to disappear, but he worried after Elixir refused to come with him. Vanisher teleported into the castle, and found Warpath being tortured by Blink, who served Selene. After being wounded, Vanisher teleported away with Warpath.

(X-Force III#25) - Warpath painted Vanisher and the members of X-Force in ash to grant them some immunity to Selene's powers. They teleported into Selene's base, where they were attacked by Blink, Mortis, Wither, and Senyaka, and Vanisher teleported to surprise Blink, who was then slashed by Archangel. Soon, Warpath defeated Selene, and Vanisher asked Elixir to tend to his wounds.

(X-Men: Second Coming#1) - Domino and Vanisher were sent to San Francisco to wait for a sign of Cable and Hope Summers.

(X-Force III#26) - Vanisher and X-Force rejoined the X-Men only to learn that Nightcrawler had been killed in battle with Bastion.

(New Mutants III#13) - Vanisher overheard Domino talking to Cyclops about how Bastion was targeting mutant teleporters, and they wanted Bastion back in Utopia in case he was needed to help protect Hope Summers. Vanisher rushed to grab his wallet and escape, but Domino hit him in the nose with a gun before he left. He landed back in Portgual, only to discover that all of the prostitutes there had been killed. Steven Lang and his men then opened fire on Vanisher, shooting him muliptle times before he teleported away.

(X-Force: Sex and Violence#3) - Vanisher, healed (presumably due to Elixir), joined X-Force in fighting the Assassins Guild.

(Heroic Age: X-Men#1) - Steve Rogers wrote about Vanisher in his report on mutants.

(Astonishing X-Men III#48) - Mentally manipulated by Susan Hatchi, Vanisher and his allies attacked the X-Men (Gambit, Iceman, Karma, Northstar, Cecilia Reyes, Warbird, Wolverine).

(Astonishing X-Men III#49) - Vanisher threatened to teleport Wolverine's heart out of his body, but he fled when Warbird nearly cut into him. When Chimera helped the others realize they were being controlled, Vanisher teleported them away.

(Superior Foes of Spider-Man#9) - Back in his old costume, the Vanisher hung out at the Bar With No Name.

(Amazing X-Men II#16 (fb) - BTS) - Cain Marko hired Vanisher to teleport him to the X-Men.

(Amazing X-Men II#16) - Vanisher took Cain Marko to the X-Men (Colossus, Firestar, Iceman, Nightcrawler, Marvel Girl, Pixie, Nightcrawler, Northstar, Rockslide) interrupting their battle with Man-Killer, Jinn, and Crossbones.

(Amazing X-Men II#17) - As Cain opened fire on the X-Men, Vanisher teleported away.

(Black Panther VI#7 (fb) - BTS) - Ezekiel Stane hired Vanisher and the Fenris twins to work for him.

(Black Panther VI#7) - Stane captured Black Panther and put him in restraints, but Panther's allies, Luke Cage, Misty Knight, Manifold, and Storm, attacked. During the following fight, Vanisher teleported repeatedly, punching Misty Knight multiple times. Soon, Vanisher teleported the villains away.

(Black Panther VI#12 (fb)) - On behalf of Stane, Vanisher teleported Zenzi to a new destination.

(Black Panther: World of Wakanda#6 (fb) - BTS) - Vanisher began stealing Vibranium from Wakanda and delivering it to Cardiac, who paid him for the material.

(Uncanny X-Men V#19 (fb)) - Emma and Vanisher watched as Sentinels had a skirmish with other mutants, but they chose to stay out of it. Later, when they were trying to recruit funding for their new program, they were attacked by a group of mutants who had been corrupted with the transmode virus by the Office of National Emergency (O*N*E), including Karma, Strong Guy, and Mirage. Vanisher and Emma were taken by O*N*E, who injected them with a serum that corrupted their powers, then forced them to work with the government in apprehending other mutants. Days later, Callahan felt Frost was not working hard enough, so he activated the serum that corrupted the Vanisher, whose powers went awry and Vanisher exploded in a mess of pink goo.

Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Paul Reinman.

Factor Three are considered BTS from X-Men I#26 (November, 1966) to X-Men I#36 (September, 1967). Their first actual on panel appearance was in X-Men I#37 (October, 1967).

Vanisher was also active during the House of M reality warp in Incredible Hulk III#83-84 (September, 2005) where he was working for Exodus alongside Pyro.

OHOTMU Deluxe Edition#14 lists Vanisher as 5'8", and 175 lbs., but I went with the stats in the original OHOTMU here.

The A-Z Update Handbook#3 mistakenly lists Vanisher as being 5'5". When Vanisher appeared in S.W.O.R.D. II#1, it showed his real name in quotation marks, "Telford Porter," hinting that it might be an alias.

Thanks to Markus Raymond for adding Avengers I#102-103, Sensational She-Hulk I#59, Thunderbolts I#55 and a few BTS appearances.
