Trevor Fitzroy[src]


Trevor Fitzroy was the illegitimate son of Anthony Shaw, the wealthy and influential Black King of the Hellfire Club. Trevor was born a mutant, and had the ability to drain other living beings of their life force, and to use that life force to open temporal wormholes. Despite mutants being outlawed and consigned to concentration camps, Trevor lived a free life, possibly protected by his father. [3]

At some point, Trevor joined the Summers Rebellion, an uprising of mutants and pro-mutant humans against the oppressive anti-mutant policies of the U.S. government. Trevor became close with Ruby Summers, one of the leaders of the rebellion. Trevor was contacted by his father, who had him rescue Ruby and the time-displaced Jamie Madrox and Layla Miller from a Sentinel attack.[3]

Trevor aided the rebellion in trying to undo the schemes of Anthony Falcone, but was killed by Cortex. Ruby begged Layla to save him using her power to bring people back from the dead but the terrible consequence of Layla's powers were that those she resurrected came back without souls. Layla relented, and brought Trevor back, allowing him to save them by defeating Cortex.[4]


Without his soul, Trevor lost his conscience and morality.[4] He soon became a hardened criminal.[5]

Fitzroy joined the Academy for Xavier's Security Enforcers (XSE) and engaged in a relationship with Shard. He turned out to be a criminal though and was removed from the Academy. His wealthy father tried to protect his son for a while, but when Fitzroy was caught for murder, even he could no longer protect him. Fitzroy was captured and arrested by Bishop, Shard's brother and a XSE officer.[5]

Trevor Fitzroy

Fitzroy himself thought that he was merely a teleporter, but a secret group of XSE agents, known as the Xavier's Underground Enforcers (XUE) discovered that Fitzroy had the ability to travel through time. The XUE recruited Shard and freed Fitzroy. They hoped to change the past to create a better present, but Shard stopped them, when she was reminded how dangerous Fitzroy was. Fitzroy was returned to prison.[6]


From prison, Fitzroy escaped to the present time with his minion Bantam. There, he became involved with a group known as the Upstarts, a competition organized by the Gamesmaster to assess who could kill more mutants (the more powerful the mutant, the most points they received). The Upstart with the most points would win the prize: control over the Hellfire Club and the other competitors. To enter the competition, one had to kill a member of the Hellfire Club's Inner Circle (though later members didn't have to). As part of this “game,” Fitzroy unleashed Sentinels on the Reavers and their leader Donald Pierce, killing them all. Pierce escaped and arrived at the Hellfire Club, followed by the Sentinels. The Sentinels killed Pierce and then killed most of the the Hellions and put their leader, the White Queen, in a coma. The X-Men, who had been negotiating with the White Queen, fought Fitzroy. Fitzroy was forced to open a large time portal, allowing prisoners from his own time to escape to the present. The prisoners attacked the X-Men, but stopped when three figures stepped through the portal: Bishop and fellow XSE agents Randall and Malcolm. They went after Fitzroy, eventually killing the escaped criminals. Malcolm and Randall were killed though and Bishop would remain in the present and join the X-Men.[7]

Later, Fitzroy captured Selene, but she managed to escape later. He also brought in Siena Blaze to compete in the Upstart competition. Fitzroy clashed with the X-Men a second time when he tried to kill Forge, but managed to escape again.[8] When the Gamesmaster declared that the new target for the Upstart competition would be former members of the New Mutants and Hellions, Fitzroy attacked X-Force, demanding they turn over Rictor and Warpath. X-Force leader Cable tricked Fitzroy into trying to absorb his life-energy, but as Cable's arm wasn't organic, Fitzroy's powers used his own life-energy to open a portal, seemingly killing him.[9]

Why the portal didn't drain his own life is still unknown. Fitzroy reappeared under the thrall of Selene as the White Rook of the Hellfire Club.[10]


Fitzroy increased his power levels substantially and journeyed to a future timeline in which Earth was reduced to medieval technology levels. There Fitzroy set himself up as the Chronomancer and took over, using time-jumping robots with futuristic weapons to keep control. Then he had Shard brought to that time, where he kept her captive, but before his goons got her, they transported Bishop to Fitzroy's realm as well. Bishop, however, remained on the loose, and Fitzroy began to modify Shard to make her human again. His powers increased dramatically, to the point where he could freeze people in a type of stasis and open many more portals than before. In addition, his energy powered the Chronotroopers and his entire fortress. In the final battle, Fitzroy used Shard as bait for Bishop, and he captured his rival when Shard betrayed him. Fitzroy tortured Bishop mentally and physically before leaving him to "assume his destiny as Master of Time."[11]

Fitzroy's plan was to become Time itself, a feat so ambitious that the Watcher came to observe. Unfortunately, Bishop had been freed by his companion Link, and arrived to stop Fitzroy from entering the giant portal he had created. A fight ensued, and Fitzroy emerged victorious and headed for the portal again. Bishop, drained of energy, had no chance until Shard arrived and turned herself into energy again, forcing Bishop to absorb her and blast her at Fitzroy. Bishop missed, but Fitzroy hesitated enough that Bishop caught him and held him half in, half out of the portal until it closed on itself, cutting Fitzroy in half.[12]

Fitzroy draining Madrox' dupes

Return to the Upstarts[]

Fitzroy reappeared once again as a member of the mutant group the Upstarts. He helped kill the Nasty Boys in order to lure out Cyclops and his ragtag team of X-Men to Washington Heights. After a brief moment of words, the two groups engaged each other in battle. Fitzroy started to drain the life energies from Multiple Man's dupes but was caught off guard by Havok, who fired a concussive blast at Fitzroy which knocked him off balance. Soon enough he became overwhelmed as they were outnumbered. Fitzroy fled the scene with Cortez and Siena Blaze leaving Shinobi behind as a scapegoat.[13]

After Fitzroy was apparently detained by O*N*E, it was mentioned that they killed him. The only one that survived was Cortez because the X-Men saved him.[2]

Life-Force Absorption: He possesses crystalline hands capable of draining living beings of their life-force, converting it into energy and absorbing it into himself. Effectively killing his victims, thus disintegrating the body.

  • Temporal Wormholes: With the resultant energies, Fitzroy could create portals that could teleport those passing through them across time and space. He must drain life-force for the portals to open; for every person drained, 1 person can pass through. The portals are one way. Trying to pass through the wrong way results in the traveler having his body terribly misshapen. As well he can put these portals into stasis to be used at another time.
    • Timeframe Alteration He has the ability to shift objects into different timeframes, and alter the flow of time to return people or objects into a previous incarnation.
    • Stasis Inducement: He has the ability to freeze people in a type of stasis.
    • Spatial Teleportation: Other than traversing time his wormholes can be used to move across space, teleportation, for which he only needs to absorb a small amount of life-force for.
Life-Force Transferal: Fitzroy could also use the converted life force he drainsed to infuse on the dead, which essentially resurrected them; however, due to his nature, this is an ability he rarely uses.[14]


Life-Force Dependency: Sometimes people or objects that had entered one of Fitzroy's portals in the future remained stuck between times until he drained a lifeforce in the present, allowing them passage through. If Fitzroy himself attempted to open a portal without having absorbed sufficient lifeforce, the portal would instead drain his own life, giving him the appearance of death.

Temporal Anchoring: Despite being immensely formidable his ability to navigate time used to be dependent on a fellow diminutive mutant Bantam. By using his assistant as an anchor he could stabilize time portals and keep better track of them. He had no natural ability to detect when his wormholes expired. Though this seems to be something he learned to overcome in recent years.
