2016-11-28 17:49:22 sergiovse Bio Rusty was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma to a sailor who died in combat before his birth. As if losing one parent wasn't bad enough, his mother soon followed and her dying wish was simply that her son would grow up to be just like his father. Orphaned from that point on, Rusty was placed under the guard of his uncle who made no effort to conceal the fact he strongly disliked him and, in a bid to get rid of the boy, helped an underage Rusty enlist in the Navy at the age of 16. Not long after, the sailor Rusty found himself being forced to go out drinking with his naval buddies and was pressured into a sexual encounter with a woman named Emma. Obviously shy and inexperienced, Rusty tried to resist Emma's advances and in a cruel twist of fate, he accidentally burst into flames - discovering his own latent mutant power. Having horribly burnt and disfigured his would-be sexual partner, Rusty was arrested by naval authorities and his superior officer, who knew Emma personally, swore revenge on Rusty and mutants in general. Imprisoned by the Navy, his superior officer soon attempted to exact his sworn revenge and prepared to shoot the captive Rusty in cold blood. In fear for his life, Rusty ignited and fled, inadvertently setting half the naval base ablaze in the process. +++ X-FACTOR +++ Afraid that Rusty would report the attempted execution, his superior officer hired X-Factor (who at the time were posing as mutant hunters) to track him down. The members of X-Factor intervened and managed to save Rusty from the military. Afraid of Rusty ever going to the police, his superior allowed X-Factor to keep Rusty as their charge. X-Factor explained to Rusty their intention of locating mutants like him and helping them understand their powers. They offered Rusty a chance to join the team as a trainee which he accepted. Like pretty much every other mutant, Rusty began harboring feelings towards X-Factor member Jean Grey, although he never acted on his crush. However the combination of his feelings for her as well and his nervousness on account of his powers and the mutants around him led to him storming out of X-Factor's HQ after insulting Artie. After Frenzy unsuccessfully attempted to recruit the fragile Rusty to the Alliance of Evil, Rusty soon returned to X-Factor, apologized to Artie and continued his training. While assisting X-Factor in one their missions, Mystique's Freedom Force team attempted to arrest Collins, who was still wanted for criminal charges for having burnt Emma. Rusty was saved by the teenage Morlock known as Skids, and he was instantly smitten with her. The two pursued an adorable relationship together, although neither could truly control their mutant powers hampering the romance. However, Rusty still felt guilty about having disfigured Emma and in a reckless attempt to find some redemption he made a deal with Masque - a Morlock who could twist and alter flesh and who just so happened to dislike Skids and wished to hurt her through Rusty - to heal Emma in exchange for disfiguring him. Having tracked down Emma and discovering she actually forgave him and was thankful for the disfigurement as it had allowed her to appreciate her life more, Rusty found some solace as Emma wished not to be "fixed". However Masque still attempted to disfigure Rusty, leaving it to Skids to force Masque to restore him to normal. Rusty and Skids soon befriended fellow X-Factor trainees Boom-Boom, Rictor and Artie and Leech and the group engaged in several light-hearted adventures together. After saving New York from Apocalypse, X-Factor and their trainees were regarded as heroes which caused trouble for Rusty who was still a wanted fugitive. After a brief period of wearing a mask to conceal his identity, Rusty eventually unmasked in public in protest against the Mutant Registration Act and turned himself over to the authorities to face his criminal charges.
