Genocide, the word strikes terror into the hearts of millions. Half a century ago it was a madman named Hitler and the victims were Jews, Gypsies, Pole, Serbs, homosexuals and the disabled. Now the target is mutants, those born with traits not displayed by either parent. They are called by some 'homo superious', as they thought to be the next evolutionary step for humankind, and filthy muties by those envious of their strange abilities. Genocide has taken this prejudice and distilled it into a tight, well run organization. For years the group struggled, drifting without a strong hand at the helm. That was, until the Black King. A man of another age, a bigoted age, when America tolerated slavery, the Black King was once known as the superhero Sarge. Always, just below the surface, lurked a rage, an intolerance, but it took the touch of an alien artifact to strip away the thin veneer of a civilized world. Now Genocide is under the control of a strong, steady hand, a hand dedicated to the destruction of all mutants. At the top of his list of priorities is Ghost Archer and the Wild Hunt.
On July 7,
2003, in the vast emptiness of California's Death Valley, a great battle was
fought. It was a scheme born in the mind of Ghost Archer and agreed upon
by nearly ever mutant he contacted. To lay a trap for the remaining
Genocide units, Ghost Archer of the
Icehawk of the
Professor X of the
White Queen of
Leo of Zodiac,
SAAT, Requiem of
and Magneto of the
Brotherhood of Evil Mutants met in the middle of the
desert. Archer knew the Black King and knew there was no way he
could resist such a gathering of powerful mutants. He was right.
