Neutron was a member of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. He was a traitor who served Lord Samedar, Deathbird, and the Brood in their conspiracy to overthrow Shi'ar Princess-Majestrix Lilandra. While Neutron was pardoned alongside the rest of the Imperial Guard traitors, and returned to service under the crown, his family was less forgiving- cutting off all contact and making it clear he would never be allowed to return home. With nowhere to go back to, Neutron pledged himself to his work. 
Following the defeat the Shi'ar Empire by the Inhuman-led Kree following the War of Kings, Neutron was among the Imperial Guard tasked with subjugating worlds rioting against Shi'ar control. When Izumbard declared its independence from the Empire, Neutron was part of the assault force- his quantum body nullifying the rebels attempts to shoot him down. Despite his defenses, Neutron was too slow to save his fellow Guardsman, Voltar from the explosion that killed him.  Later he was part of an Imperial Guard force sent to explore the Fault. Coming in contact with escapees from the Cancerverse, including that reality's X-Men, Neutron was killed saving fellow Guardsman Fang. He was later memorialized alongside other fallen Guard members.
