Bishop

 BISH   (Marvel, 1994-1995)

™ and ©1995 Marvel Entertainment Group

Bishop is a mutant from the future who crossed over into our time in Uncanny X-Men #282. In his own time, he was a member of the XSE, a police force charged with hunting down mutant criminals using any amount of force necessary. Bishop’s own power is the ability to absorb and rechannel energy, making any energy attack against him futile. He remains vulnerable, however, to projectiles.

Having been stranded in our time, Bishop was accepted as a member of the X-Men, and carried on a battle to keep the present from degenerating into the violent world he knew. In this mini-series, however, he is called upon to take care of old business in the form of a mutant criminal who escaped in the time rift in which Bishop had crossed over. The mutant is called Mountjoy and he has the ability to usurp the bodies and wills of others. Unless Bishop can stop him, Mountjoy intends to use this time period as his own sick playground.
