Martin was a member of a community of Inhuman descendants with very little Inhuman DNA that lived in Minnesota and had tried to avoid Terrigenesis for 10,000 years. At some point, he and his wife adopted Jaycen, a child from Utolan (another Inhuman community). Raising Jaycen (as "Jason") was hard as, due to being unaware of his true lineage, he felt kind of ostracized, and pictured himself as some kind of compensation for a white guilt Martin had.

Following the detonation of the Terrigen Bomb and the inminent arrival of the Terrigen Cloud, Martin's community tried to run away. Martin had a hard time convincing Jason, ensuring him that no matter their blood, he was his dad. Jason finally joined them in their buses, but the Cloud kept pursuing them, changing directions as if it was aimed toward them. Running out of luck, the community found the road cut off by a torrent.

Despite Raymond's desire to keep going, Martin left them behind, accepted his fate and then explained to Jason that they were "special," just like the African group he was adopted from, as the Terrigen engulfed them all. Jason was the only one to emerge from his cocoon only to meet Lash, who took him to Orollan.[1]

  • Martin possibly liked the music band Rush.[1]
