Mickey Tork started operating as a vigilante named "Rainbow" (due to ability to change color of his massive body) on the streets of San Francisco when his powers have manifested. Later, as his powers continued to evolve, he abandoned this name. With his new ability to merge with surroundings, he proved himself to be extremely useful against Balkanian terrorist group.


Bloke was created by Peter Milligan and Mike Allred in 2001 and first appeared in X-Force issue 117.

Now having christened himself "Bloke", he contacted, and became a member of the newest incarnation of the mutant team named X-Force. There he did not bother to show all his teammates that he was gay, by expressing his interest in some of his male teammates. Some of the teammates, such as Phat, did not like this behavior. Bloke then went on his first mission with the team. However, his career ended soon as he was killed while protecting Diego Ardilles from gunfire. With his dying words, he wanted people to know that gay people could also be heroic. His dead body was later vaporized by his teammate the Anarchist.

Powers & abilities

Bloke's abilities were very adaptive; he could change the color of his skin, and he displayed a new ability with each color. Though his powers changed with his colors, he always displayed a certain degree of heightened endurance.
