Pyro was first seen fighting the Friends of Humanity and meeting Nightcrawler. He was a member of the Morlocks, and a supporter of Xavier's cause who tells Nightcrawler that he would have liked to have been a member of the X-Men.[1]

He was later rescued from a Sentinel attack by Bishop and Storm, who recruit him as a member of their new team of X-Men.[2] It is hinted by Bishop that the recruits were "legends" of the future, meaning that Pyro may have much potential. [citation needed]

At one point, he cauterizes a bullet wound by pressing flames against it. Bishop later has Pyro infiltrate the Friends of Humanity as a spy for his team. The group's leader Stryfe recognizes that Pyro is a spy, but confesses that he has nothing to hide, and wishes that he would join the group in earnest.[citation needed]


Pyro is able to generate flame, firing blasts like a flamethrower or using it to cauterize wounds. He has yet to demonstrate any fine control over fire, though he can direct it to a limited degree. Bishop's claim that he will become legendary suggests reserves of power as yet untapped.


He is not immune to flame's effects, and is extensively covered with scar tissue, noting that he has few nerve endings left and thus little sense of touch.
