Unlike most of the X-Men, Forge was not present at the X-Mansion when Logan was tricked into murdering by Mysterio when the villains mounted an organized attack on all superheroes at once.[1]

Years after the villains had taken over the United States, Forge was living on a Cheyenne reservation in South Dakota. When the Rhino Gang targeted Forge's reservation, they were met with unexpected resistance, courtesy of Forge's hidden high-tech defenses, which annihilated the gang. Rhino himself was then beaten to death by Forge, mounted on a exo-skeleton.

When Logan found himself stranded in Earth-616, an alternate world set in the past where the villain uprising never happened, this world's Forge asked him about his counterpart's fate. Logan complied and told him the story about this Cheyenne mad scientist shaman who defeated the Rhino, and that even though he never had any confirmation it was Forge, Logan knew it was him.[2]

He reappeared holding a fort and keeping the peace. When the gang of sabretooth clones came, him and his wife tried holding the fort as long as possible, so Logan and his gang could escape. It came down to letting Speedball out. The whole place was engulfed in a huge explosion, which caused him to die.[3]


Seemingly those of the Forge of Earth-616.

Forge's corpse

  • Originally, as depicted in Wolverine Vol 3 #70, Forge was one of the numerous X-Men unwittingly killed by Wolverine at X-Mansion. Extraordinary X-Men #18 contradicts this, and even has Logan state that Forge was not at the school at the time the X-Men were killed.
