Bishop was a mutant in the dystopian future. Early in his youth, he encountered Wolverine, who prepared him for the days ahead. He first met Charles Xavier in a mutant camp, which had infiltrated with his team to lead a prison break. This succeeded, and the upgraded Celebro was recovered as well.
After a while, the X-Men decided to make a final stand against the machines and launched a full-on attack against Master Mold, where Bishop seemingly perished alongside the newly returned Wolverine, Xavier and some others.
