After the implementation of Canada's Super-Powers Registration Act on Earth-9418, Alpha Flight found themselves competing with the Hardliners to capture and contain unregistered super-powered individuals. It soon became apparent that politician Robert Hagon was a puppet for Joshua Lord who was capturing the super-powered people for experimentation. Lord then lead a slaughter of baseline Canadians and forced genetic engineering on the remaining populace. Lord's actions were hidden from the rest of the world by a protective web around Canada that prevented news from spreading to outside sources and also erased memories for those who passed through the psionic web (so that anyone who left the country would forget what happened).
At some point during Lord's reign, Shaman was apparently killed.
