Addison Falk, also known as the Grey King, was one of the nanotech "X-Men" created by Cerebro. Cerebro based Falk and his teammates on mutants in Professor X's files, possibly Jean Grey, Sebastian Shaw, and Magneto in Falk's particular case. Grey King also wore a Phoenix-like costume and had red hair.[1]

Cerebro destroyed Addison and the other nanotech X-Men shortly after their creation.[2]
