Powers: Nate was created to destroy Apocalypse for Sinister. His mutant abilities are incredibly powerful, but Sinister made a failsafe that would kill Nate before he was 21.
After escaping the pens, Nate was found by a group of traveling performers,
which were really freedom fighters. Nate was taken under the wing
of Forge, who treated the boy like his son. They learned that he was
a mutant of power untold, and trained him to use that power for the
good of everyone. One of the first missions we see involves Nate and
the Troup saving a group of humans being shipped to Apocalypse's harvesting
plants. Here, we meet Theresa Rourke, soon to be known as Sonique.
While Nate was attacking some Infinites, she used her mutant powers
for the first time to save him from a single Infinite that he forgotten
When Blaquesmith found that Nate was not supposed to belong in this reality, he had Cable hunt him down. Cable's goal: kill the young mutant. He found Nate facing Exodus, now an energy vampire. Nate almost died after sealing Exodus in the chasm, but Cable used his own mutant energies to revive him. However, this left Cable's body open to attack by his techno-organic virus. After meeting Cable, Nate and Threnody flew to the Mediterrean, where Holocaust (as Onslaught's goon) tried to recruit Nate. The two super mutants held a battle over the beach, where many innocent people were injured, and a few paid with their lives. However, Holocaust was defeated and Onslaught became determined to end the young man's life. Seeing the need to protect Nate, X-Force joined up with him to act as protectors. Sinister, seeing a second, better Cable, "visited" X-Force and took them out. He captured Nate, and took him to one of many lairs that he has. Perhaps he wanted to protect him, but Sinister only showed how he could save Nate from himself. However, Onslaught used Franklin Richards to capture Nate, thus providing Onslaught with even more power to unleash upon New York and the world.
It turns out that the Sugar Man has been using mutates to power a device called the Far Gate, which created a portal to the AoA, but a few years in the past (before Magneto created the X-Men). Here, he found his mentor, Forge, again. Forge tells Nate that he has been back before, which tells us that like other Summers Family offspring, he can time-travel. So, Magneto, Forge, and X-Man fought Sugar Man, and prevented him from unleashing a plaque that would kill most of Earth's population. Nate promised Forge that he would find him again, but in the true reality. Whether or not Nate will actually find the Forge of our timeline, is untold. Soon after that adventure in time, Nate met Spider-Man and became good friends with him. However, he became infected with a craving for blood like Morbius, which led Nate and Spider-Man to find Threnody and Morbius at the local cemetary.
So, Nate headed for Muir Island to speak with Moria MacTaggart. Dr.
MacTaggart told him that he was holding back, restraining his own
powers. He left, and soon after was approached by Havok and Fatale
for membership in the Brotherhood. Nate has been able to regain some
of his TK, but only enough to fly with. His first mission with the
Brotherhood involved getting Aurora from a train, and get some toxic
stuff too. Little did Nate know the Beast from his timeline was also
part of the Brotherhood! Well, it didn't really matter since Nate
betrayed the Brotherhood and blew up the Coldsnap. Unfortunately,
like his "mother", Nate wouldn't let go of life. Well, his
powers surged and resurrected him. With his TK back (kinda), Nate
returned to his life in the spotlight, now accompanied by three ladies.
With the whole world alert to his presense, Nate has drawn the unwanted
attention of the Purple Man (an old Alpha Flight villian). Bux, one
of Nate's ladies, lost her arm in a motorcycle accident, but it mysteriously
reappeared. Apparently, Nate hasn't lost his touch to create psychic
constructs (used only once before with Madelyne Pryor).
