Sometime before Jamie Madrox set out to create his own detective agency, a duplicate embodying the treacherous, megalomaniacal aspects of Jamie's personality locked himself in a bunker on Muir Island where he spent the following years attempting to find a way to become the "Madrox Prime."[1][2]

When the Madrox Prime died from M-Pox, his duplicates died as well, except for the dupe locked in the bunker. The airtight bunker managed to delay the adverse health effects, but after the New Mutants found the bunker, the dupe resumed his decay. In an effort to put off his inevitable death, the dupe convinced Beast to create a serum which would not only prevent his death, but also allow for the creation of dupes of his own, just like a prime, then stole a Temporal Beacon from Bishop and traveled into the future.[1]

Due to Madrox's meddling, he came to rule a totalitarian regime that was policed by his own duplicates in that future. The Emperor Prime had killed many, if not all, of the world's superheroes with the help of his dupes led by his lieutenant, starting with Beast, whom he had killed after he had perfected the serum to make the Emperor Prime the new Madrox Prime. The Emperor Prime's rule was opposed by a Resistance, which was also largely made up of other Madri.[2]

When the Emperor Prime's lieutenant realized the Emperor had had a change of heart, he invaded the past with an army of Madri shock troops,[3] the combined forces of the X-Men, the New Mutants, and the heroic Emperor Prime's allies were defeated and captured. The lieutenant ultimately died when the Emperor Prime reabsorbed him.[4]
