Peter Corbeau was a close friend to Charles Xavier and even became involved in the incident which would be known as the Phoenix Saga. He was present when he, Xavier and his X-Men where abducted by a Sentinel whom took them to a starship. The X-Men later escaped, and teamed up with Corbeau in order to safely return to Earth. Jean Grey offered to bring the space-yet down to Earth and took the information she needed to drive the space-yet from Peter. This did however result in Jean Grey becoming the Phoenix. Corbeau was with the X-Men on a number of times after that. He even helped Wolverine and Storm sneak into the Pentagon when they had to destroy mutant-registered files.
