X-Men Poster #80 Stryfe by Andy Kubert NEW X-Men


SKU: 13058 Category:


Stryfe is the clone of Nathan Christopher Summers, the son of Cyclops and Madelyne Pryor (a clone of Jean Grey); when the immortal mutant Apocalypse infects the infant Nathan with a techno-organic virus, a woman from the distant future introducing herself as Askani appears to Cyclops and Jean Grey, telling them that she can save the child. Once the infant Nathan arrives in the future, Askani clones the baby, hoping to salvage something if he dies. The clone’s growth is greatly accelerated until he is the same age as Nathan himself. The Askani succeed in halting the spread of the techno-organic virus in Nathan’s body, thereby saving his life. However, Apocalypse and his forces attack the Askani’s hiding place and steal the cloned infant. Apocalypse takes the child as his own, raising him himself and naming him Stryfe, intending to use him as his next host body. As Apocalypse is about to transfer his essence into Stryfe, he discovers that Stryfe is in fact a clone, thus unfit to house his essence. A teenage Nathan and the time-traveling Cyclops and Jean confront Apocalypse, leaving him unable to transfer into any host body, thus causing his essence to discorporate. Apocalypse’s second in command, Ch’vayre, raises Stryfe afterwards.
