Formerly a mercenary working for the Hellfire Club, Reese was nearly killed by Wolverine in battle together with Cole and Macon. The only way for them to survive was to become a cyborg. As thanks to Donald Pierce, Reese joined the Reavers to carry out his plans. Several encounters with the X-Men, Reese, alongside the Reavers, killed many individuals and crucified Wolverine.
Later, it was believed Reese had died with the other Reavers after an ambush by the Sentinels, but the Reavers survived and struck the X-Men later in the Australian Outback.
