Early Years

Early life of Blaquesmith seems to mimic more or less the one of his most known counterpart, including adventures with Cable.

At some point, he found the remains of the anti-mutant arsenal gathered by the Avengers.


Blaquesmith was recruited by Cable who was losing control of the Techno-organic virus in a mission to kill the Avengers. ? Blaquesmith agreed but informed Scott and Hope Summers of Cable's mission. They arrived to stop him and eventually Cable failed in his mission as he was being consumed by the techno-organic virus. He was taken back to Utopia to die but Blaquesmith convinced Hope to use her Phoenix powers to heal Cable which she did, curing him of the techno-organic virus.

Blaquesmith shooting at Hope

Cable and X-Force

Blaquesmith finally resurfaced after sending an email to Hope Summers regarding the supposed whereabouts of her adopted father, Cable. She then went to the coordinates to look for Blaquesmith, but it ended up being the address to a Easy Eatz Convenience Store. Hope walked in and asked the service clerk if she knows of a Blaquesmith who lives there, but instead she asked Hope did she mean Blacksmith and wondered if her horse threw a shoe. Not understanding what she had meant, Hope was about to leave when the service clerk said that Cable never laughed at his jokes either. As Hope turns around Blaquesmith appears from within the mechanical clerk, which startles her. She asks him why he is at a convenience store and he tells her he owns it, along with two others. He explained that he had to support himself somehow. He then takes her through a secret passage way under the floor to his laboratory. As she goes about asking questions as to who is giving her father the precognitive future images, she turns around just to have Blaquesmith shoot her with some kind of energy weapon which transports her away to the future saying that the importance is not who and what is responsible, pale in comparison to the why.[2]

    Blaquesmith powers

  • Mind Alteration: Ability to alter the minds of others by force of will.
  • Mental Amnesia: Ability to cause loss of particular memories and amnesia in another person or even in a group of people
  • Psionic Shield: Ability to erect a psychic shield for protection of himself and of others minds. Blaquesmith has proven very difficulty to psychically assail, as he is very well skilled in shielding his own mind from mental-attacks (such as attempts to read, control or harm his own mind), and has been sufficient to protect himself from other psychics.

In the Astral Plane, he can use his powers to create "ectoplasmic" objects. Blaquesmith has a mastery of astral projection, and is able to remain on his own plane of existence or to traverse into any of the so-called "Astral Planes".[citation needed]
  • Mental Detection: Can sense the presence of another superhuman mutant within a small but as yet undefined radius of himself, by perceiving the distinctive mental radiations emitted by such a being.[citation needed]
  • Mind Transferal: Able to transfer both his mind and powers into other host bodies should his own physical body be somehow killed.[citation needed]

Chronokinesis: He can slow down the flow of time, perhaps psionically.[citation needed]
