During the Cold War, Weapon Plus created operation code name Descendant with the purpose of recreating and android as sophisticated as Jim Hammond, the Human Torch. Three individuals known only as Father, Mother and Brother attempted to create the perfect android. Though they came close they were never able to replicate "true life" until Brother, who was a scientist of magic, used the Orb of Necromancy to breathe life into their creations. Twenty Descendants, Homo-Synthezoids, were created. Father demanded Brother to repeat the process on a mass scale to which he refused and later disappeared with the Orb. Mother released the Descendants into the world to live unaware of their true power.
Father continues to create variations of the Descendants, each with it's own flaw without the help of Brother's Orb. Father created the adaptoids in order to find and recover the Descendants.
Father has seen a future where super humans went too far and had to be stopped. He created Operation Deathlok wherein all super humans were killed, reanimated and converted into Deathloks. Apocalypse's existence in the current time threatens his future so he has seeded the Deathloks into all dimensions and realities to kill Fantomex.
Father was created by Rick Remender and first appeared in Uncanny X-Force #6.
