Part of Gene Nation, a group of Morlock whom Storm encountered and relocated to Africa, Boost was a mutant who functioned like a living battery cell. He could augment other mutants' powers by a process called "body-jumping", wherein Boost merged with other mutants and boosted their powers.[2]

When Humanity's Last Stand attacked the former Gene Nationals at their new home, Storm, the X-Men, and Havok's Brotherhood arrived to offer the mutants protection against their enemies. Humanity's Last Stand was eventually defeated, and Boost, along with fellow former Gene National Tether, sought to leave, helping the Brotherhood escape in return for being dropped off at an unrevealed place of their choosing.[2]

Boost was affected by the M-Day, and lost his mutant powers.[3]

Boost was somehow repowered, and became a citizen of Krakoa. He was suggested as a potential replacement for Cortez in S.W.O.R.D..[1]

Powers

Power Amplification: Biomorphically merged with his own mutagenic aura, then infused himself into the bodies of others, supercharging their mutant powers.[2]
