    Short summary describing this character.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Spike Freeman first purchased the X-Statix with high hopes for making even more money off of them through their conflicts and controversies. He was responsible for many events in the team, such as Vivisector getting romantically involved with Phat, the Spike and Venus Dee Milo joining the team, and many of the team members dying. He always had a rough love/hate relationship with the Orphan, which ultimately lead to Spike's death.


    Spike Freeman was created by the writer Peter Milligan and the artist Mike Allred. His first appearance was in X-Force #117.

    The Death of a Trillionaire

    When Lacuna discovered some of Spike's shady dealings with Mr. Code, namely their weapon deals, Spike told Mr. Code to kill Lacuna. When Orphan and the others confronted Spike about this, he responded untruthfully, telling that he had no choice, and that Mr. Code would have killed him if he did not comply. Knowing that Spike was going to have Lacuna killed, Orphan took the innitiative and jump-kicked Spike in the head, breaking his neck and thus killing him instantly. In a later issue of the X-Statix, Dead Girl used her powers to communicate with the deceased Spike Freeman, bribing him with money that would work in the afterlife to tell her all about the dark dealings. Spike, lured by the cash, told Dead Girl all about his deals with Mr. Code, and left happily with his deceased credit card.
