Horse is the powerhouse of Sovel's Shi'ar Salvagers crew. Horse has need for medication, called his "Happy pills", for his somewhat unstable psychic nature. Horse and his crew encountered the X-men a few times. First when they came to earth, where some of his teammates wanted to kill Rogue. On a different occasion, Horse and his team teamed up with Rogue, Rachel, Magneto and Gambit in order to save the X-men's lost teammates, Havok and Polaris. This was not voluntarily, but because Sovel had lost his leadership against Rogue during a duel when he had chosen Horse as his representative to fight Rogue.
