History

Maverick, along Wolverine, Sabretooth, Silver Fox, John Wraith and others, is a test subject for the Weapon X Project, a Canadian project who made unaging super-soldiers out of mutants. Like most subjects, he has been a spy and shadow warrior ever since.

As for all Weapon X subjects, Maverick’s background is either false or nonexistent. It is established, however, that he was part of a superpowered CIA kill team called Team X during the Cold War, along with Wolverine and Sabretooth ; a botched extraction attempt in Berlin, during which the trio clashed with the dread Omega Red, is well-documented.
Maverick has since operated with Wolverine a few times, mostly to clean up remnants of their common past (including the Weapon X Project). It is known that he has served as a special operative for the US and Germany during most of the Cold War. At one point, however, he discovered that his own wife was a double agent and killed her himself. He then understandably retired and started operating in the private sector, performing wetwork, bodyguard duties and other mercenary activities. A master at the art of the espionnage, he specialized in jobs that no-one else was willing or able to undertake.
