Sauron was an inhabitant of the Savage Land[1] and also a member of the Savage Land Mutates, mutated by Mister Sinister.[2]

Originally a human known as Karl Lykos, he was experimented on by Sinister, resulting in his need to siphon energy from other living creatures. Siphoning energy from mutants caused him to transform into Sauron. [3]

Secret Wars

When the Multiverse was destroyed in the last incursion between Earth-616 and Earth-1610, Doctor Doom, with Beyonder's powers, recreated it in the form of Battleworld. Earth-92131 was recreated in the Westchester domain, ruled by Baron Kelly.[4]

The Shadow King realized that in comparison to those other domains, Westchester was a fragile paradise, and set out to ensure its survival by any means. Using the cloned body of Professor X, the Shadow King became Cassandra Nova, and used his new identity to become a politician and establish the Bureau of Super-Powers.[5]

At the Clear Mountain, Cassandra Nova used a form of psychotherapy called the "Mind Field" to brainwash those mutants who arrived to the institute and force them to live in harmony, unlike most of the other mutants, Sauron and a few other more monstrous looking mutants were kept in a separate room and called the Rej-X, deemed not fit to integrate into the human society because of their looks.

Jubilee who didn't take part in the treatment because she was too young, was led to them by Artie Maddicks.[5] Beast who was also sent to the room because of his looks found out from Chamber that the Rej-X weren't just trapped in that room doing nothing, they were forced to work by salvaging sentinel parts for Cassandra Nova Ten-Sentinel project.[6] Beast decides to build a cannon to bust them out of that room using sentinel parts and Chamber powers, but before they could test it, Deadpool who was looking for Sabretooth shows up and frees them.[7]

After being freed they confronted Cassandra Nova along with the X-Force, Nova tells the Rej-X that whoever brings the X-Force to God Doom will earn themselves an hammer and become a Thor, seduced by the possibility of becoming a Thor Sauron was one of the Rej-X that turned against their saviors and attacks the X-Force, they were eventually stopped by Storm who appealed for unity between all mutants.[8]



Seemingly those of the Karl Lykos of Earth-616.
