In addition to their heroics, Colin and his family became renown for their appearance at the annual Farnborough Airshow, where they took on passengers and performed aerial style maneuvers reminiscent of the Red Arrows.
It was during M-Day, however, that tragedy struck. During a routine performance, Colin was depowered which in turn caused the Knights to lose the gift he shared with them. As the family, along with a full complement of passengers, where in mid-flight at the time, they proceeded to plummet to their deaths, with Colin being the only survivor.
Colin subsequently developed an intense hatred for humankind, as he believed them responsible for M-Day and thus behind the loss of his family and power. To this end, he joined a group of his fellow depowered mutants and bombed the Main Line Railway Terminus. It is unknown if he survived the explosion.
