According to police records, Benjamin Russell was a runaway from Boston, Massachusetts who had a criminal record.[2] He had medical files detailing his time in the Weisman Institute for the Criminally Insane.[3] According to one source, he had been in a coma ever since the day his mutant powers first manifested. His Uemeur merged with his identical twin Shatterstar's, apparently creating a composite being with all the memories of both.[4]

This merger is allegedly over.[5][1]

The reason why Shatterstar and Benjamin Russell appear identical has never been explained. Because he was in a coma during his appearances, all information about Benjamin Russell's life came from secondary sources.
