Fictional Character Biography
Huntsman belongs to the latest generation of living weapons created by Weapon Plus Program, and was designated Weapon XII. Like Fantomex (Weapon XIII) he was born and was artificially "evolved" in The World, a man-made environment designed to create super-soldiers using Sentinel technology. He was intended to be one of the Super-Sentinels, a team of mutant hunters conceived by John Sublime as a publicity stunt to make the extermination of mutants acceptable to the public.
Huntsman, alongside Fantomex were transported from England to France via the Euro Tunnel, however, a fake train wreck set up by Weapon Plus itself released both Fantomex and Huntsman from their containment capsules, while also trapping 120 passengers, 30 asylum-seekers and numerous animals within the Tunnel. Members of X-Corporation Paris were dispatched to deal with the accident.
While Darkstar, Siryn, Multiple Man, M, Rictor and Cannonball were overwhelmed fighting Huntsman's possessed victims, Phoenix and Professor X were recruited by Fantomex in exchange for information on Weapon Plus.
Professor X and Phoenix arrive to find the X-Corp members nearly defeated, with Siryn injured and Rictor, immune to Huntsman's infection, saved by Madrox. Phoenix's telekinetic powers were useless against Huntsman's. Professor X takes over the mind of Madrox in order to create an army of mind-controlled duplicates to counter Huntsman's own army. Meanwhile, Fantomex shoots his way through Huntsman's victims, including Darkstar herself, in order to reach the train that contained Huntsman's kill switch. Fantomex activates the kill switch, killing not only Huntsman but also all those whose minds were infected.
When the military arrived, they eliminated all evidence of an anti-mutant conspiracy.

“Just how difficult it is to write biography can be reckoned by anybody who sits down and considers just how many people know the real truth about his or her love affairs.”
—Rebecca West (18921983)
“It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be.... This, in turn, means that our statesmen, our businessmen, our everyman must take on a science fictional way of thinking.”
—Isaac Asimov (19201992)
“The actor should not play a part. Like the Aeolian harps that used to be hung in the trees to be played only by the breeze, the actor should be an instrument played upon by the character he depicts.”
—Alla Nazimova (18791945)
