- Broodling, Son of Brood. 22.3% chance that in the next three years you will discover a cure for cancer. 34.7% chance that during that time you will murder and consume at least one of your classmates.
Broo is the first mutant of the Brood race, born in the lab on the orbital research station known as Pandora's Box, where S.W.O.R.D. studied his race. Like No-Name of Hulk's Warbound, he understands compassion and friendship, which disgusts others of the race. When the Brood Queen escaped and freed her warriors, they left him in his stasis tube.
Brood seized the station, but Beast, Lockheed and the X-Men went there to rescue Abigail Brand. However, during the battle Abigail was infected by Brood larva, which gave her access to the hive-mind. She learned that the destruction of the Brood home world led to the near-extinction of the race, causing an imbalance in the interstellar ecosystem. So the X-Men developed a plan to save the Brood, which didn't endanger humankind. They planned to "reprogram" hive-mind, using No-Name as a new template, but Brand told them about this unnamed teen mutant, who could be used for the same purpose. The X-Men freed him and he helped them defeat the Brood.
Jean Grey School
After this he returned to Earth and joined Wolverine's X-Men at Jean Grey School for Higher Learning. When the school was attacked by the Hellfire Club using Krakoa, he meet Idie who gave him the name Broo. When the inspectors of the education departments turned into monsters he tried talking to them only to fail.
When Genesis was enrolled in the school everyone noted that he looked like Apocalypse except Broo (who had never known or heard of Apocalypse) who welcomed him. In a special lecture, Deathlok gave the students the probabilties of their futures. He told Broo that there was a 22.3% chance that in the next three years he would discover a cure for cancer, and a 34.7% chance that during that time he would murder and consume at least one of his classmates. He responded by saying "Well, that is rather fascinating."
