Presumably a homeless runaway, Ape was one of the first Morlocks organized by Callisto. Ape had developed a strong friendship with fellow Morlock, Tar Baby. More recently, Ape was captured by mutants working on behalf of the latest Weapon X program. Unbeknownst to his captors, Ape was ultimately imprisoned in the mutant internment camp dubbed Neverland. Here, mutants were rendered powerless and if potentially dangerous to remain alive, were sentenced to death. Ape was seen among those first to die under the program.
