    Carl Denti was an FBI agent who accumulated government records on mutants and stockpiled the weapons and other technology of the X-Men's primary foes to bring to punish renegade or murderous mutants. He often came into opposition of some of the X-Men themselves because of their crimes. During his term as a dealer of justice, he took on the guise of the X-Cutioner.


    X-Cutioner was created by Scott Lobdell and first appeared in Uncanny X-Men Annual issue 17 (1993).
