The Death Commandos were sent to eliminate the Grey Genome. They succeeded in killing all except Rachel Grey and Cable (although it's debatable how he fits into the Grey line, since his mother was a clone of Jean Grey). They then attempted to destroy Rachel after she had sneaked away from the Institute, but the X-Men and one of the O*N*E sentinels arrived in time to help her.
During the War of Kings, Gladiator believed that Lilandra was murdered by the Death Commandos (it was in fact a raptor in Darkhawk armor. Gladiator hunted down Black Cloak and his superiors and engaged Black Cloak in combat. Black Cloak actually managed to hold his own against the enraged Gladiator and had gained the upper hand and was about to kill him when Rachel Summers arrived with the Starjammers and used her powers to explode his head, killing him in revenge.
