Xavier's Institute

After the Xavier Institute went public,[1] Patrick was enrolled and when the training squad system began, Patrick was placed with Rogue's Advocates Squad, and codenamed Umbra.[2][3]


Umbra was one of the many mutants to loose their powers on M-Day.[4] The depowered students of the Xavier Institute was asked to leave the school, but the bus carrying several depowered students was attacked by one of William Stryker's Purifiers.[5] It is unknown if Umbra was aboard the bus.


Currently none. Umbra was a mutant, but lost his mutant powers due to the effects of M-Day.
