Kirk Jansen was a scientist whose lab team was close to making a breakthrough beyond the field of robotics and artificial intelligence, converting emotional states into electronic impulses, essentially creating beings capable of experiencing all the emotions of a real person.[1] Nineteen years from the present, Jansen's work would've resulted in the outbreak of the deadly Reaver Virus. After Magneto returned from visiting an alternate timeline in which the carriers of the Reaver Virus pushed mutantkind to the brink of extinction,[2] he scheduled a visit to Kirk Jansen's lab, killing him and all of his employees to prevent the Reaver Virus from coming to pass.[1]
