When Legion, the mentally unbalanced mutant son of Professor Charles Xavier and Gabrielle Haller, traveled back in time in an attempt to kill Magneto, he accidentally killed Xavier instead, creating a splinter universe known as the Age of Apocalypse. In that reality, mutants became the dominant species of the planet. Apocalypse rose to power and enslaved humanity.
Made one of Apocalypse's chief assassins, "Dead Man Wade" Wilson become one of Apocalypse's Pale Riders, and become obsessed with feeling pain. His teammate Danielle Moonstar took great pleasure in inflicting pain upon him. When Apocalypse learned that Nightcrawler was seeking out Avalon, he sent Wade and the other Pale Riders to follow him and destroy the refuge.
They succeeded in tracking Nightcrawler to Avalon and launched their attack. However, witnessing Wade's brutal attack on the innocent people of Avalon convinced Damask to defect and attack him. Her initial attack failed, however Nightcrawler put an end to Wade, decapitating him by teleporting away while holding his head.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
PowersRegenerative Healing Factor: Dead Man Wade possesses a superhuman healing factor granted to him by Apocalypse that allows him to regenerate damaged or destroyed bodily tissue with far greater speed and efficiency than an ordinary human. Dead Man Wade is able to heal injuries such as slashes, puncture wounds, bullet wounds, and severe burns within moments. His healing factor is developed to the point that he can regrow missing limbs and organs. As Dead Man Wade had cancer at the time of the gene therapy which endowed him with these abilities, it bound to the "healing factor" so that in a sense the cancer is his healing factor, which is why his skin is still horribly scarred. Unlike Weapon X’s natural healing factor, Dead Man Wade’s is mentally driven to a partial extent.
Dead Man Wade is an extraordinary hand-to-hand combatant and is a master in multiple unarmed combat techniques. He has been shown fighting amazingly skilled fighters and holding his own in battle with them. This shows that Dead Man Wade himself is among the most skilled fighters in the Marvel universe. He is a master of assassination techniques, is a master marksman, and is highly skilled with bladed weapons, and a number of other weapons. He is fluent in Japanese, German, Spanish, amongst other languages.
