Quote1.png You wanna know why I'm joining you? Simple: I like winning. And I've been losing for too damn long. Screw Charles, screw the X-Men. I'm done wasting my time trying to kill them. Quote2.png


Cain Marko was the step-brother of Charles Xavier, who he hated because of the favoritism Marko's father showed for him. During service in the Army, Marko found the Temple of Cyttorak, after touching a ruby in the lap of an idol, Marko became the human avatar of the Cyttorak, a being with the mission to cause destruction as an unstoppable juggernaut.

As the Juggernaut, Marko returned to the United States and tried to kill Xavier, who was saved with the help of his students, the X-Men. Marko later joined the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and fought numerous times the team his stepbrother founded, even after the crisis of the Isotope-8.

After realizing he had been losing his whole life, Juggernaut changed sides and joined S.H.I.E.L.D.'s alliance, as he could still bring destruction for Cyttorak.[1]
