History: He was found when he was only 3 years old by a field researcher, Dr. Penelope Zalam, who was doing experiments out in the desert. The young boy was found in an alien escape pod that had landed less than a kilometre from where Dr. Zalam was working. Wondering what had caused the tremor and noise, she followed the explosion of sand until she came to a small crater. In the centre of the crater was a small, metal, egg-shaped container. Suddenly the container opened and there was a little green boy wrapped in cloths. Instantly, her motherly instincts kicked in and she took the young martian home and raised him as her own son, naming him James. Since then, the boy was home-schooled and eventually he took an interest to guns. Having seen his talents one day while James was practicing, Penelope insisted that he join the army. On the day that he turned 21, his mother took him to apply. As soon as they saw him, they told him to go back to Mars. But, once they saw what he could do, they had to let him join. Quickly, he worked his way up to Lieutenant rank and met up with the Xmen on one of his assignments. After Wolverine had risked his life to save James, the young Lieutenant felt that he had a debt to pay. So he told the Xmen that if they ever needed his help, he was determined to do so.
