This week Seanyx explains Who the hell is Mr Sinister and he kills it! I love this new segment but we want to hear more from you guys. If you've got a character, creator, team or company you're curious about post it here and everyone on the board will be more than happy to rap about who the hell they are. If it turns out to be a particularly juicy discussion we might just use it on the show! So let's hear it. Who have you been wondering about?
Forge tho, is a Cheyene Mystic, who turned his back on his people to go fight for the 'white man' in his war. At the time it was Vietnam, but it can easily be updated to be any war on a Southeast Asian jungle. Forge, who so far doesn't have a real name, quickly rose in the ranks to sergeant. While leading a team into a valley to stop the NVA from making ti to the coast and splitting the country in half, he and his troops decide to hold their position and try to stop the NVA force . They only had to hold it until the B-52's came to carpet bomb the valley, but the bombers were late and Forge's men paid the price. Determined to avenge his mens deaths, Forge called upon his o\powers as a Shaman and used an obscene soul spell to kill the enemy. Forge survived, but a terrible evil was awoken that day. Years later, Forge used his mutant ability to create anything that he could think of to become a wealthy inventor/arms maker. His work for the government brought him into contact with the x-men when it was revealed that he created a gun that could detect and nullify the shape shifting aliens the Dire Wraiths. It was supposed taken by the NSA to be used on Rouge, since at that time she was still seen as a terrorist, but instead, when it was fired, Storm leapt in the way and lost her powers. Forge and Storm,who didn't know at the time that Forge created the weapon that stole her powers, started a relationship. Then Storm found out. Bye bye Forge. Soon after, Forge gets back to work on the Nullifier, and the Dire Wraiths attack. Storm and Forge are brought back together hand team up to defeat the Wraiths. With the help of Rom Space Knight, Forge makes a larger scale version of the Nullifier in Earths orbit and sends the Wraiths to Limbo. After this, An evil spirit unleashed when Forge used his soul spell started to make itself known. it first banished Forge and Storm to another reality and then took on the X-Men, as seen in The Fall of the Mutants. While trapped in the alternate Earth, which is devoid of any humans save themselves, Forge creates a new nullifier, this one to give powers back, and uses it on Storm, who with Forge and his mystic abilities, opens a portal home. They arrive just in time to help the X-Men defeat the Evil, named the Adversary,by using the same spell that Forge used in 'Nam but this time with nine willing souls. The X men die, Forge goes on to get attacked by Magik of the New Mutants, who saw on V her brother Colossus die. Unknown to all of them at the time, the X-men are alive. Forge goes back to creating things, mostly weapons it seems, until he is used again when he has a spirit dream and sees Storm in a cage spinning from adult to child, which was her form at the time. Forge learns that Storm is alive and decides to head to Muir Island to get help. Forge goes to Freedom Force to help get him to Muir Island, as it is under attack from the Reavers .Freedom Force, which at the time was Pyro, Blob, Avalanche, Mystique, Destiny, Stonewall, Super Sabre,and Crimson Commando join Froge in saving the ISle, but not without heavy losses. The original Skullbuster for the Reavers was killed , but so was Stonewall and Destiny. Soon after that, Forge and Banshee decided to go looking for the X-men, but first make a stop at Xaviers to close off the school from invaders so that the alien tech doesn't fall into the wrong hands. While doing that, they meet up with Marvel Girl and have a Morlock adventure. Forge finds out that Colossus is alive and figures that the others must be alive too and decides to go in search of the other X-men. Soon after, The Xtinction Agenda happens and the X-mwen are all back and alive, Forge joins the team as technician and inventor, but soon leaves after he proposes to Storm. He figured she wouldn't leave the X-Men for him, and decides to go away with the bat shiz crazy Mystique instead. they have a sorta relationship, join X-Factor, and that is the last we see of Forge for a while.
Later he is back at home in Dallas contracting for the government, while mentoring Danielle Moonstar and creating gauntlets for Surge, when a Nimrod unit appears from an alternate reality and demands that Forge fix it. Forge pretends to comply, but sends out an sos which the new x men receive and come to help. They defeat the Nimrod.
During Messiah Complex, Forge is hurt by crazy Bishop after he sends Multiple Man and Layla Miller to the future.
During divided we stand, he is again attacked by crazy Bishop, who is after all ofd the tinge travel tech that Forge os reverse engineering . Forge gets beat up pretty badly, and after locks himself up in his skyscraper and beefs up his defenses so that he won't get beat up again.
Soon after, Forge himself goes bat shiz crazy and decides to save the world from the Ghost Boxes and the inter-dimensional invasion opt Earth. Afdter the X-men help him to stop the invasion, his complex falls apart. Storm tries to help Forge, but he is bitter and says no. He is last seen being buried on the wreckage,.
In Marvel NOW! Cable comes to the rescue of Forge, who is still bat shiz crazy and trying to figure out what is wrong with himself. Cable using his mind whammy to fix him and Forge goes on to join X-Force version 5. Cable calls him Skritch.
That's Forge in a giant nutshell. Most of this stuff I remembered, or looked up in my issues, except for the Ghost Boxes stuff. that I found on wikipedia, as well as refreshers on messiah Complex thru Marvel NOW!
