The Magus was the ruler of Kvch, homeworld of the Technarchy, and its most powerful being. When his son Warlock fled their homeworld, due to his fear of having to face his father in mortal combat, the Magus pursued him to Earth in order to kill him, arriving on Earth the following winter in the form of a meteorite impacting near the X-Mansion. Only three X-Men (Colossus, Nightcrawler, and Rogue) were then on the mansion grounds to oppose the Magus, yet still inflicted upon him a painful and humiliating setback which prompted Magus to hide himself on Earth in human guise in order to study the mutants of Xavier Mansion incognito. Magus eventually did battle with Warlock and his New Mutant teammates resulting in Magus being sent back to his point of origin.

Deep in space, Magus met the New Mutants again. Assisted by the Starjammers and Professor X, the Magus was "reprogrammed" into reverting to an infant state. He later returned to normal and sought out his son. He confronted a new version called 'Douglock', which was not exactly the entity he expected. A combined force consisting of several Avengers, Wolfsbane and two newer super-powered people, Hope and Psimon, confronted him during his attack on New York. Magus was defeated when Douglock combined his abilities with Hope's matter-transformation powers and was thought to have returned to his home planet. [2]

Spawn used by the Purifiers

The mutant-haters, the Purifiers, discovered the Magus in a state of hibernation on the ocean floor. Bastion collected the Magus' spawn and used the Transmode Virus to resuscitate and transform long-dead enemies of the X-Men into the members of the Human Council. However, they were all eventually defeated by X-Force.[1]

Eli Bard stole the techno-organic virus from the Magus' spawn, apparently killing it.[3]

Techno, Inc

Later the All-New X-Factor, a privately owned and operated super-team handpicked by Serval Industries' CEO Harrison Snow, while investigate a high tech organization rival to Serval Industries, unexpectedly discover that Magus was once again on Earth and heading up the corporation. Not only that, but Magus' previously estranged son, Warlock, was now on his side.[5] With the help of Doug Ramsey, they confronted Magus, who reveals that after the fight with his son where he ends being infected with a virus, he tried to reboot and rid himself from the virus when he reached his planet, however the virus broke free and infected all the technarchy and laid waste over the planet with only a handful of technarchs having survived. On the verge of extinction Magus decided to make amends with his son, setting aside the race's genetic disposition of father killing son so that they could live in harmony. Presented with the fact that Magus only is merely running his own corporation, the All-New X-Factor was forced to leave.
