    Brief History

    Harry and his Mutant Brood.
    Harry and his Mutant Brood.

    After being infected with a Brood Queen egg at a crash site in New Mexico, paramedic Harry Palmer infected his partner Josey Thomas. They then began seeking out emergency calls involving mutants, infecting them with Brood eggs to create a force of Brood capable of fighting the X-Men on an equal playing field. He infected Blindside, Brickbat, Dive-Bomber, Lockup, Temptress, Tension, Spitball and Whiphand.

    Harry Palmer and his partner Josey become the leaders of the pack and eventually attacked the X-men. Josey also infects Hannah Connover in hope of her using her preacher husband's traveling congregation to make even more Broodlings. During the final battle, Harry is finally laid to rest, when the alien is killed by Wolverine, who believed that Harry had already died the moment he became infected.The rest of Harry's Brood were also killed by the X-Men, who resolved that the human hosts were simply beyond saving.

    Harry's partner Josey survived the ordeal and would later again fight the X-Men, as would Hannah.
