Early Life

In 1903, Rasputin came to St. Petersburg, where he arrived with a reputation as a mystic and faith healer. A few years later, he was introduced to Czar Nicholas II and his wife, Alexandra, who were seeking help for their sickly son, Alexis. Rasputin quickly gained their confidence by seemingly "curing" the boy of haemophilia. This action won him the passionate support of Alexandra.[2]

In 1912, fallowing a fall Alexei began bleeding. The doctors could do nothing for him yet Rasputin with a wave of hands stopped the flow of blood. After that he took a number of lovers and engaged in quazy religious rituals with all these women.[2]

Mr. Sinister

Dr. Nathaniel Essex arrived from England to learn more about Rasputin suspecting him on being a mutant. While witnessing he witnessed to more powerful mutants Ivan and Elena. Rasputin attacked Essex but he was eventually able to convince him of his work to create a race of superhumans. He impregnated various women including Elena.[3]


On the night of December 29, 1916, Ivan brought together a group of conspirators, including I the czar's first cousin, Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich, and Prince Felix Yusupov, invited Rasputin to Yusupov's palace and fed him wine and cakes laced with cyanide. Though Rasputin eventually became rather drunk, the poison seemed to have no effect. Baffled but not deterred, the conspirators finally shot Rasputin multiple times. He was then wrapped in a carpet and thrown into the river.[3]


Rasputin used to wield the Wand of Xyggondo.[4]
