James Proudstar’s early life at the Apache reservation in Arizona has largely yet to be revealed. It is known, though, that he held his brother in high regard, and watched him become an X-men known as Thunderbird. When Thunderbird died in action, James was distraught, holding Professor. X responsible and vowing revenge on the X-men. Through unknown circumstances, James was then contacted by Emma Frost, the White Queen of the Hellfire Club, to join and train with the Hellions.
Eventually, as Thunderbird II, James tried to defeat the X-men and kill Xavier, ultimately realizing that it was wrong and that the X-men were not responsible. Declining to join the New Mutants, James returned to the Hellions, although he felt out of place with their more ruthless behavior, and he eventually quit them anyway.
James was later urged by Cable to join his formative “X-force,” but he at first declined. When returning to his home, James found the entire reservation wiped out, with a Hellfire mercenary’s mask left behind. Vowing revenge against the Hellfire Club, James joined X-force as Warpath, only to find out eventually that the Hellfire Club was framed for the massacre.
