The early life and origin of the villain known as Barrage remains unclear. He was an original recruit of the Dark Riders of the Storm. As an agent of Apocalypse, he attacked X-Factor's Ship and the Inhumans' city on the moon.[2] He and the other Dark Riders switched allegiances to Stryfe when the Chaos-Bringer defeated Apocalypse in battle. They defended Stryfe's moon base from the X-Men and mortally wounded the unfit Apocalypse in combat.[3]

With Stryfe's death, Barrage and the Dark Riders traveled the world challenging mutants to prove they were strong, and searching for the fabled Twelve. The Riders apparently killed Mesmero and their own member, Psynapse, when he showed weakness. They were surprised to actually find a survivor in Scott Summers, Cyclops.[4]

Barrage originally appeared with the Dark Riders when they started serving Genesis, but was missing from the roster by the time the team was massacred by Wolverine.[5][6]

Barrage eventually returned to Stryfe's control, and even though he was killed in a confrontation with a version of Madelyne Pryor,[7] he resurfanced several years later.

The Dark Raiders, including Barrage, embarked in a journey to kill Mutant healers when a Terrigen Mist cloud was spread throughout the world, endangering mutantkind, believing the event to be a test of strenght, so only the stronger should have survived.[8]

When the Dark Raiders attacked the healer Shen Xorn, they were caught off-guard by his display of power, costing Barrage's life.[9]


Barrage had the power to transform his forearms into organic weapons capable of collecting ambient energy and firing it in powerful explosive blasts.
