Billy inadvertently killed a group of human patrons at the Cafe Des Artistes who were harassing Sylvie, on whom he had a crush. He took her "hostage" which led to a police standoff.
Rather than allow the situation to become a catalyst for anti-mutant strife in Mutant Town, Alexei Vazhin hired Sashenka Popova to assassinate Billy Bates. He then paid Sylvie and her father off to keep them quiet about the incident.
Offensive morphing power lets him sprout razor tipped spikes from his face, body, and right arm, fire these spikes as projectile bolts, and distort his left arm into a misshapen, extended form with elongated fingers and claws.
