Nate comes from a different timeline. He was unknown until a few years ago. Nowadays he is famous only in Mutant Town as a local vigilante and "Nate the Great" a stage magician.


Nate Grey, aka Scion or X-Man, is known mostly in Mutant Town as one of the local vigilantes/heroes. Generally well-liked by the local inhabitants and the District X police, despite using excessive force occasionally. The NYC police in general doesn't dislike him too much because he is one of the few 'super-heroes' that stays to give a statement even go to the local precinct to talk with them if requested. He has also worked with SHIELD a few times and owes Nick Fury a favor or three. Nate has no secret ID.

Among the denizens of the Xavier School, Nate is known as a powerful psion and reluctant X-Men, one that is both hotheaded and prefers to do things his own way.

On the other hand, the D.E.O. considers him a dangerous loose cannon, and although right now there is no arrest warrant (or kill order) standing, they would prefer him dead and might attempt to discreetly eliminate him if it looks feasible.


  • Created by Nathaniel Essex (Sinister) as a living weapon in an alternate timeline where Apocalypse had conquered and destroyed most of the world from the genetic material of Jean Grey and Scott Summers.
  • Freed from a fast-growing chamber in his early teens by Cyclops. Joined Forge's rebel cell.
  • Raised by Forge and his teammates as a freedom fighter against Apocalypse rule. Kept hidden from Apocalypse agents.
  • As the final battle in the war for the worls is about to start, a disguised Sinister found him and gave him some training, causing Apocalypse agents find out about him.
  • Apocalypse forces kill most of Forge's cell. Sinister murders Forge. Nate apparently kills Sinister in retaliation and leaves to kill Apocalypse.
  • Nate arrives just in time to join Magneto's X-Men in the battle for the M'Kran Krystal Magneto wanted to use to change the past. Final atomic apocalypse begins during the fight. Nate obtains a shard of the crystal Apocalypse wanted to use to escape, but gets dimensionally displaced himself.
  • Appearing in a reality similar to Earth 626, Nate finds friends and fellow heroes and builds a life for himself. But then he discovers his powers will kill him before he becomes 21.
  • During a battle inside a downed spaceship, Nate becomes infected with an alien technovirus. He survives and his body manages to cope with the technovirus thanks to his ability to control matter at molecular level, but his powers are severely dampened.
  • Nate discovers the Spiral of Worlds and becomes trapped in Earth 626 while looking for his home reality.

Character Details

Raised in the hellish environment of a dying world, Nate learned early on how bad the world can become when evil has won the war. He saw too much horror and death his first years awake and he was marked forever. But once he realized he would die fighting, and it would be very soon, he lost all fear of death, and of almost anything else.

But he didn't find peace, he was too angry at the atrocities he saw and at seeing his friends dying. His rage drove him to fight harder, but also to recklessness and costly mistakes. When through cosmic happenstance he became the only survivor of the Age of Apocalypse, he was almost crushed by the guilt of the survivor.

A few years later, he is still haunted by nightmares and memories, and he is still quick to anger and resort to violence. He remains harsh and impatient, but also fearless and committed to prevent that what happened to his world happens again anywhere.

Despite having escaped his doomed world to a better one, Nate believes he has chosen a life style that will bring him to an early grave. On consequence, he remain rootless, yet willing, even eager, to try new experiences, to meet interesting people, to live his life to the fullest when he is not risking it. He genuinely likes people and makes friends easily.


Image Name Relation Information
Ravager1.jpg Rose Partner, girlfriend, source of endless amusement This is the most interesting woman I have met in any Earth
22JeanGreyWikiShot.jpeg Jean Not-Mom, but role model, maybe Look, I am a test-tube baby, so she is not my mother. But she is a friend
RayProfile.jpg Rachel Rachel… sister Her very existance makes me wonder about subjects like our destiny, cosmic designs and another things that drive me nuts because they have no real answer (what is, is. Says old man Cable). Whatever. Rachel is a fighter, like me. She is injured, more than me, but she is strong and keeps going, and I am will fucking kill anyone that hurts her again.
LauraX.jpg Laura Adopted Sister, sorta When I met her years ago she was this little mouse of a girl. Skulking in the shadows, never speaking, doing anything people told her to do. A living weapon, like me, but she had never been free. I tried to help her, and I am happy to see she has grown up nicely. Now she is a woman with voice, opinion and a stubborn streak a mile wide. Live forever, Wolverine!
Slim.jpg Cyclops Not-father, not sure what This man is the true X-Men leader. He is harsh, tough, clever and his plans usually work. I have read his mission logs: he organizes everything, he analyzes everything, he is nearly always correct. I think I can respect him, and sometimes I want to befriend him, but I… just can't. Because he drove Rose away from the X-Men, from a place she could belong. I can't forgive him
Magik.png Illyana Friend, fellow warrior Wicked, smart, loyal, funny, powerful, deadly. This lady has everything but peace of mind, and I could easily have fallen for her. As it is, I am very glad to have her at my side.
profx.jpg The Professor Dreamer, a good guy Although I can't say I agree 100% with him (or hell, probably not even 70%) Xavier seems a genuinely good person I will gladly fight to protect. He is also an incredibly skilled telepath, I learn quite a bit just watching him work.
