    Short summary describing this character.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Scrambler is one of the few mutants that retains his powers after M-Day.

    Scrambler is mutant and a sociopath and a member of the Marauders, a band of assassins who were gathered together by the mutant thief Gambit at the request of the enigmatic mastermind known as Mister Sinister.

    Sinister first sent the Marauders to murder the entire population of the underground mutant community known as the Morlocks. In the course of this mutant massacre, the Marauders clashed with the mutant adventurers known as the X-Men and the original X-Factor team. Subsequently, the X-Men thwarted the Marauders' attempt to assassinate Sinister's former pawn, Madelyne Pryor, in San Francisco.

    Later, Sinister sent the Marauders to battle the X-Men during the time of the demonic invasion of New York City known as the " Inferno". The Marauders were all killed during the "Inferno", but Sinister possesses the ability to clone them thanks to samples of their DNA. The Marauders later clashed with the dimensionally-displaced young mutant known as Nate Grey after they attempted to assassinate Sinister's former servant, Threnody.

    It is unknown, whether Scrambler or his clone retained his mutant powers after the M-Day but Il Sung returns alongside the reorganized Marauders.

    During the final battle for the mutant baby, the first birth since Decimation, Scrambler goes over to Wolverine and shuts off his healing factor so that he won't heal from the bullet, after being shot in the eye by Scalphunter. However, X-23 appears and literally dismantles Scrambler, cutting off both his hands and mutilates him. 


    Scrambler was created by Chris Claremont, John Romita Jr and Bret Blevins in 1988 and first appeared in shadow in Uncanny X-Men # 210. Scrambler's full appearance was in Uncanny X-Men # 211.
