David Haller (Earth-616) showing other sub personalities from X-Men Legacy Vol 1 249 001

Styx and the five other rogue personalities.

Following the Fortress X time, where Legion's personas all had a body for themselves, the return to the normal reality left free six of those sub-personalities outside David's body.[1]

He and the X-Men became aware of that only after having tried to use Time-Sink's powers, unsuccessful, and was informed of that using Delphic's divination powers, revealing the rebellion of six personalities: Time-Sink, Chain, Susan in Sunshine, Bleeding Image, Styx and Endgame.[1]

Styx absorbing "Legion"

The six personalities headed to Europe and then split up, Time-Sink staying on Tenerife (Spain), Susan and Chain in London and Styx installed himself in Paris Catacombs, followed by Bleeding Image and Endgame.[2]

A team consisting of Legion, Magneto, Rogue, Frenzy, Gambit and Professor X was assembled to hunt down the rampaging personas for David to reabsorb them into his psyche.[3]

Rogue absorbed along Styx into Legion

During their operation in London, Xavier was kidnapped by Styx who left a trail for David to follow him in Paris,[4] where he sent his henchman Bleeding Image and later directly in the Catacombs.[5]

Once inside, Styx revealed his plan and goal: In order to ascend as God, he wanted to obtain Moira's reality warping powers. However, he was tricked by David and Rogue, using Chain to duplicate David on Rogue and was reabsorbed by Legion after a violent battle where Rogue merged into Legion.[6]

Paris catacombs redesigned into the Styx

  • Psi-shield: Styx and the five other sub-personalities are somehow protected from psi-scanning, and even the Omega-level Telepath Charles Xavier was unable to perform a psi-contact on an unconscious Time-Sink.
