Shadowshift and his brother Scout were two of many mutants captured by the US government to be brainwashed by their agent Virus, into subservience. Shadowshift was freed by a team of mutants assembled by Wolverine, which he then joined.
When Sentinels attacked the team's compound under orders from Virus, F.B.I. agent Kyle Dansig had a change of heart, revealing that he was Shadowshift and Scout's father and ran into the flames to save them. Charles Xavier covered their escape, making all the surrounding government agents think the three of them perished in the fire.
