Hey, who are Lucas Bishop's Parents? I can't remember if I've read about them or not.

He can absorb energy so that is kind of a hint.

Has it ever been stated? All I know is he was raised (with his sister) in a mutant camp and then raised by some blind dude.

i'm pretty sure it's never been stated, but in the ultimate universe his future isn't that far off so he's around currently

He's a mystery. I've seen him around for so long that I thought the information must be out there somewhere.

Marvel, the suspense is killing us…

He and Shard were orphans. I don't think we have ever actually seen their parents, even in flashback.

For a while there ,ever since Wolverine, Marvel has had a bad habit of making characters without much backstory, or "real" names especially with mutants and extra-especially with the X-Men.

A friend just told me that  Bishop might be the child of a girl called Threnody and her BF Nate Grey. Or maybe Rachelle Summer and Bishop gave birth to Bishops. Sounds strange but anything goes in Marvel.

All that's been stated about Bishop is that Gateway is his grandfather.

 Thought Gateway was his great-grandfather?

Scott Lobdell has said that he was just teasing us with that moment of disorientation when he thought M was his mother in Generation X issue... somewhere around #11-14. So it certainly wasn't his intention to say that M was his mother, but who knows, if he's an orphan, then he may not really be able to remember what she looks like. XD

Until Synch died, people thought he might've been Bishop's father. I think the timeline's been altered enough so that Bishop and his sis may not even be born in our timeline; and how's M-Day going to affect them if they had already been born?

But, in any case, Bishop & Shard get to stick around, right? Just like all the Summers-Grey offspring.

The point of the messiah baby is that she is the key to the continuation of the mutant race, of which Bishop is probably a direct result. I believe M-Day could have happened in Bishop's timeline. The mutants dwindled after M-Day, then resurged after the birth of the messiah baby, who in turn caused Bishop's timeline/future by killing a whole lot of people. That is why he wants her dead.

She?

With red hair?

...

...

Anyone else think it's Jean? XD

Anyway, nice theory. It could happen (or could've happened or...yeah.) Has there been any official word on why he'd want a baby dead? If it's Jean, that would explain why Cable wants her alive. I really don't pay attention to this stuff.

This is too confusing. They need to make a family tree for everyone and put it on the marvel site.

That would be correct.

 So why didn't Bishop try to protect Gateway from the Marauders? He's one cold-hearted cyborg.
