    History

    Little is known of the Armageddon Man's early life, not even his real name has been revealed to us. But sometime after entering adulthood his ability to cause disastrous happenstance went out of control, leading to the government placing him in suspended animation for further study out of fear that his powers could lead to a biblical cataclysm. It seem as he had no family that was interested in his well being or perhaps they were paid off/killed by men in black whom had taken him. It also remains unknown as to why mutant organizations like the Brotherhood, X-Men or Weapon X had simply not freed him to add his power to their ranks, either he was unknown to them at the time as the government erased and denied all known record of his existence. Or, more likely, even they were too afraid of his powers to attempt freeing him. Its unknown how King Bedlam came to find out about the localization and imprisonment of this powerful mutant, all that we truly know is that he banded together several mutants to free him. Believing that upon being unleashed the Armageddon Man would force the government to give in to their demands. When awakened he was completely mindless. As a result of this a device was crafted for use by King bedlam to give him control of the creatures body and mind. All was going according to plan until X-force interfered and the device was ruptured, thus making him and his powers go out of control again. In the end X-Force was able to subdue him and return him to hibernation.

Both sides manipulating the other to get at their targeted quarry for each's own particular ends.
