Item Biography

"The Wail of the Banshee!"

Professor X tries to test Cerebro and the mental modifications he made to the Mimic, but a new mutant is out terrifying the City. The X-Men don't have to wait to find him as The Banshee and his accomplice, The Ogre, come to kidnap Professor X. But their plan is foiled by the X-Men as the Banshee is captured and the team awaits the return of the Ogre. The rouse is on and the Banshee is not the super villain the team was led to believe, he was being controlled by the Ogre and Factor Three.

First appearance of the Banshee.
