One night John went to check up on his ill son who was kept company by Victor, the son of his groundskeeper Thomas Logan. Thomas had entered their home looking for Elizabeth. John told him to leave so Thomas shot and killed John. Soon young James came and saw the body of his father and in anger his mutant bone claws manifested for the first time. James killed Thomas for murdering his father. Thomas told James he was his real father before he died.[1]
