Stryfe's Mutant Terrorists[]

The team seemed mainly organized of disillusioned, anarchic mutant youths. Stryfe founded the group sometime after coming to the 20th century (from roughly 2,000 years in the future). They were likely assembled as a tool while Stryfe assembled his master plan.[1] The exact size of the organization is unknown, but they were seen to have had several advanced bases around the world, and employed a number of presumably human guards.

In their first public terrorist raid, the Mutant Liberation Front had a mission rescuing Rusty and Skids, two New Mutants who had been captured by the Freedom Force and kept captive by the government.[2] The squad was formed by the vicious Wildside, the time-manipulating Tempo, the wicked Reaper, the brutal Forearm, the exquisite Strobe, the imperious Thumbelina, and the enigmatic teleporter Zero. Their attempt at infiltrating the base was successful, and Rusty and Skids joined then, even after they were intercepted by the resourceful Cable, Stryfe's archnemesis.[3] Following this incident, Cable took supervision over the other New Mutants.[4] Under his leadership, the youngster mutants tackled Stryfe's operations in Madripoor, which involved poisoning major cities of the world. The agents Dragoness, Sumo, and Kamikaze confronted the New Mutants and the atomic knight Sunfire, when Stryfe revealed himself on field.[5] With the assistance of Wolverine, the New Mutants defeated Stryfe and the Mutant Liberation Front, forcing a retreat and destroying the poison supplies.[6]

Stryfe's next mission tasked the Mutant Liberation Front of attacking the country of Genosha, which employed mutant slave labour.[7] However, Cable, who had reformed the New Mutants as the lethal X-Force invaded their base in Antarctica. Stryfe chose to escape, terminating his base to cover his leave.[8] Maintaining their criminal activities, the Mutant Liberation Front clashed with Kane in Canada,[9] when Stryfe made public that he was a version of Cable, which caused Kane to strike at Cable and X-Force later on.[10] The Mutant Liberation Front also freed the Nasty Boys from captivity, leading them to clash with X-Factor, a mutant government operation.[11] Their next mission was to destroy the Tucker Clinic, where pregnant parents had access to DNA testing to check whether or not their children were mutants. Thanks to an anonymous tip, Dr. Tucker was informed in advance and X-Factor was contacted to prevent the terrorist attack. Dr. Tucker was still murdered and his data destroyed. Unbeknownst to all, the tip had been provided by Tempo, who was possibly Tucker's daughter.[12]

Reign of Fire[]

After the organization was dismantled, some of the imprisoned were liberated and recruited by a mysterious villain named Reignfire, who was believed to be a futuristic version of Sunspot. Already among the ranks of the new MLF were former New Mutant member Moonstar (undercover on behalf of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Locus. X-Force's Feral also defected to the MLF, and Tempo betrayed them one more time and went her own way. After a few minor missions, including a group that infiltrated Muir Island to obtain information on the Legacy Virus, the group was captured by members of Operation: Zero Tolerance.[citation needed]


The MLF relocated to Krakoa to be a part of the mutant nation.[13]

Fall of X[]

Following the Orchis takeover of Krakoa and the banishment of most of mutantkind on Earth, a new Mutant Liberation Front was formed by Captain Krakoa, whom its members believed to be Cyclops. He recruited the Blob and Wildside before rescuing the Fenris Twins from the Pit. At an anti-mutant rally in Washington, D.C., the group was confronted by the Avengers Unity Division, rebuilt by Captain America to fight Orchis and stop Captain Krakoa's actions.[14]
