Fictional character biography

Like other members of the Riders of the Storm, he originally came from Attilan and joined the team unwillingly when Apocalypse captured half of the city. After the city was liberated by the X-Men and Black Bolt, he retained membership in the team as he, like the others, was a deep believer in Apocalypse's Social Darwinism and wanted to rid the world of those unworthy.

The Riders of the Storm, now going by the name Dark Riders, came under the leadership of Genesis. Genesis judged Foxbat unworthy of living. Chastised by his own teammates, Foxbat fled but was recaptured, and Genesis drained his lifeforce. Any hope of resurrecting him was lost when his remains were destroyed during the conflict between Genesis and his father, Cable.[1]

Powers and abilities

Foxbat exhibited enhanced strength, speed, and reflexes, and the ability to see in the dark and to use his fangs and claws as weapons.
