-- Mother Mold src

The Mother Mold was an artificial intelligence developed by Orchis as part of its efforts to fight against mutantkind. Instead of building common Sentinels, like Master Molds, the Mother Mold was created to build new Master Molds.

The X-Men learned of the existence of Orchis through X's and Moira X's program Sleeping Giant.[2] The X-Men then learned of Mother Mold after Emma Frost, Toad, and Sabretooth successfully retrieve data about it from Damage Control's computers.[3][4]

Fearing that Mother Mold's development could lead to the creation of Nimrod Sentinels,[5] the X-Men were dispatched to destroy Mother Mold before it came online,[2] by releasing the four control collars that attached Mother Mold to the Orchis' space station. The X-Men were successful in freeing three of the four collars, but Mystique, who was supposed to the free the final one, was sucked out into the vacuum of space by Orchis before she could. This forced Nightcrawler to teleport Wolverine out into the final collar so he could slice away at it with his claws in order to release Mother Mold. Wolverine was successful, though it cost him and Nightcrawler their lives.

Mother Mold came online and condemned both humans and mutants just as she fell into Sun and was presumably destroyed.[6]
