He was part of an environmental survey that was struck down by the birth of the magickal FireFountain. Wilson was transformed into Beastmaster, with the ability to control animals.

He found Snowbird and defended her from Beastmaster and Pathfinder. In the ensuing battle, Pathfinder was killed and Beastmaster severely injured.
