Ned Lanthrop was a member of Magneto's second Brotherhood of Mutants team.[1]

When Magneto abandoned them, Lifter and his allies became a separate group called Mutant Force. They acted as mercenaries working for Mandrill and his Femme Force against the Defenders.[2] After being captured, they were pressed into trying to defeat the Hulk by the government.[3]

Sometime later, Mutant Force joined the Secret Empire as thugs, working for Mad-Dog and Professor Power. They battled the Defenders again when they tried to break-up Damian and Patsy's wedding, and later during an attempted missile strike on Russia.[4]

Mutant Force later adopted new identities and became the Resistants. As Meteorite, Ned and the Resistants openly opposed the Mutant Registration Act through rallies, civil disobedience, and active criminal behavior.[5]

The Resistants eventually folded and Mutant Force was reformed in their original identities. Lifter was last seen fighting against the New Warriors but was defeated by the young heroes.[6]
