Jesse and Terrence Aaronson were both serving members in Apocalypse's Elite Mutant Force as the Bedlam Brothers. They would work closely with Cyclops and Havok.

They were send on a mission with Emplate and his sisters the Monets to track down Christopher Summers, the father of Cyclops and Havok who had been impregnated with a member of the Brood race. They would take time off from their mission to enjoy some R&R with Havok at the Heaven Bar. They would stay behind as Cyclops and Havok would go out to search for the Brood.[1]

Sometime later when Sinister would decide to abandon Apocalypse because their goals greatly differ, the carefree Bedlam Brothers would convince Havok to once more join them at the Heaven Bar. There the brothers would prevent an attempted suicide bombing caused by Henry Gyrich before returning to base. There they would find that Sinister had destroyed his lab and left the group. The Bedlam Brothers would suggest that Cyclops take command, a position that Cyclops would reluctantly accept.[2]

The Bedlam Brothers would join Cyclops in searching for traces of Sinister on Liberty Island.[3] When it's determined by the Shadow King that Havok's lover the human Scarlet McKenzie is really a spy for the Human High Council the Bedlam Brothers would be the ones to collect her and bring her in.[4] Ultimately, when Cyclops would defect and join Jean Grey in liberating those in the slave pens, Havok would order the Bedlam Brothers to kill everyone in the pens. Not liking this, the Bedlam Brothers would defect themselves and help Cyclops and Jean, battling the Guthrie family. Ultimately the Bedlam Brothers would decide to escape the city and change their reckless ways.[5]

The fate of the Bedlam Brothers following the defeat of Apocalypse remain unrevealed.
