Not much is known of Caliban’s history prior to the point when Callisto inducted him into the ranks of the Morlocks below New York City.

Caliban’s first appearance in the lives of the X-men occured when he attempted to enter a nightclub since he sensed other mutants inside. This brought him into conflict with Dazzler, Storm, Ariel (Kitty Pryde, now Shadowcat,) and the original Spider-Woman. The battle peacefully for this pathetic Frankenstein-monsteresque character. Later, though, he tried to kidnap Ariel and force her to marry him, although he eventually released her and they parted amiably.

During the “Mutant Massacre” in which the Marauders attempted to murder all Morlocks, Caliban found refuge in the original X-factor, and was eventually on his way to become a member. Soon, however, Apocalypse attacked, and Caliban, always feeling ineffectual with his teammates, offered his services to Apocalypse in exchange for more effective powers. Apocalypse mutated Caliban, and called him “Death” to replace the post recently vacated by Archangel.

As Death, he faught Sabretooth and X-factor, but was eventually abandoned by Apocalypse. Caliban wandered aimlessly through the abandoned Morlock tunnels until recruited by Cable to join X-force, where he remains to this day.
