Explanation of the conversions:
History: James is the younger brother of John Proudstar, Thunderbird
of the X-Men who died during one their missions. James, who later developed
similar powers, took the identity Thunderbird and joined the Hellions in an
attempt to get vengeance of Professor X, who James blamed for his brother's
death (New Mutants #16).
After coming to his senses about the White Queen
and the Hellions, James went back to the reservation where his family lived.
He had given up on the idea of being a costumed adventurer, good or evil,
until Cable approached him to join the new team he was building, called
X-Force. James declined at first but when he returned home to the
reservation, he discovered that it had been completely wiped out. With
nowhere to turn, James accepted Cable's offer (New Mutants #100).
He adopted the name Warpath, rather than going by his brother's code name,
Thunderbird, as he had while with the Hellions, in hopes that he could bury
the past. Warpath has proven himself to be an invaluable member of X-Force,
supplying a great deal of raw power and speed. During a confrontation with
the Juggernaut, X-Force was joined by Thereas
Rourke, a.k.a Siryn. James and Theresa eventually
developed a relationship.
James participated in the assault on the home of
the Gamesmaster in the Alps where he was attacked by Sena Blaze. He was
saved from her when Speedball II blocked her attack with his kinetic field
(New Warriors #46).
He recently underwent a surge of self-confidence, during which he left the
team briefly and traveled with a young woman named Risque. Risque betrayed
Warpath by drugging him and delivering him to a mutant called Sledge. Sledge
later informed Proudstar that a member of his tribe, Michael Whitecloud, had
not died in the massacre. Sledge offered to give him to Proudstar for a
fee. Proudstar accepted since Whitecloud is the only member of the tribe to
know the truth about the massacre. The price Warpath has agreed to pay has
not yet been revealed.
Powers: James has developed in powers greatly over the years.
Initially as a member of the Hellions he was a slightly taller then average
teenage boy who had light body armor and class 10 super human strength.
Since joining X-Force he has continually grown taller and more powerful. He
has also discovered new facets of his mutation, like enhanced speed and
senses. He has out run cars on the highway and can fight invisible
opponents in hand to hand combat with little difficulty. Recently James has developed the ability to fly.
