He originally blamed the X-Men for his brother’s death and joined the villain group the Hellions to get revenge. He later reconsidered his views and became a longtime member of the militant X-Men offshoot X-Force. After a long journey to the Shi'ar Empire with the Uncanny X-Men, Warpath became a member of the new incarnation of X-Force but he left after the events of Necrosha.

Fictional Character Biography (Origin)


James Proudstar was born on the Apache reservation at Camp Verde, Arizona. James' brother, John Proudstar, was one of the "All New, All Different" X-Men. John was killed on one of the team's earliest missions. James angrily blamed the X-Men for his brother's death and made it his life's mission to murder its founder, Professor Charles Xavier.

Powers and Abilities (Warpath)


Warpath is a mutant who possesses superhuman physical ability in virtually all areas:

He possesses superhuman strength (used as his main power in X-Force, as the team 'strong guy') with his current power levels showing him capable of toppling a Sentinel by clapping, the resulting air pressure causing it to collapse. He has even directly fought with and managed to hold his own against the Juggernaut.

He possesses superhuman resistance to injury, at least enough to withstand short-range firepower, grenade explosions, and even a direct telekinetic attack from an Alpha-level mutant psionic such as Exodus. He also repairs and regenerates damaged and destroyed tissue much faster than a normal human, as well as revives and recuperates from exhaustion and fatigue much faster than a normal human. He possesses superhuman agility & flexibility, as he has been officially stated to "move with the grace an Olympic gold-medalist would envy" and "swim with the ease of a porpoise."

His power of flight was discovered by his one-time mentor and team leader Peter Wisdom, who analyzed his mutation after the High Evolutionary devolved and re-evolved all mutants on Earth, and forced James to incorporate this ability in his fighting style. This power has not been depicted in later comic storylines, although writer Ed Brubaker has said that he chose not to depict Warpath's flight power because he didn't understand how Warpath's speed and strength would allow it. However, his fighting style in the Messiah Complex storyline has shown him to return to using his flight powers. In X-Force he can be seen flying even for long distances. It has since been suggested by writer Christopher Yost that "I thought he was a little embarrassed by the whole flying thing".

Warpath's senses, particularly sight, smell and hearing, are enhanced to levels beyond the capabilities of a normal human. He is able to see with perfect clarity at much greater distances than an ordinary human. He retains this same level of visual clarity, even in near-total darkness. His hearing is similarly heightened, enabling him to both clearly hear sounds that ordinary humans can't and sounds that they can detect but at much greater distances.

After nearly getting killed by Reignfire, Warpath experienced an increase in senses and speed that allowed him to perform feats he had previously not been aware he was capable of, such as run at high speeds up to at least 150 km/h (roughly 93 mph) for long distances and quickly climb building walls by rapidly digging his hands and feet into the bare concrete. He can even evade weapon fire with rapid reflexes and reactions.

Aside from his natural physical attributes, Warpath is well versed in hand-to-hand combat, which is enhanced by his superhuman reflex/reaction rate and eye/ear-hand/foot coordination. He was trained in unarmed combat under the guidance of White Queen and was personally extensively trained in the use of the staff by his long-time teammate star Mojoverse gladiator Shatterstar - who he eventually matched in a record time of only a dozen tries - at the insistence of their mentor Cable. He currently wields a pair of bowie knives composed of vibranium, given to him by Storm, with which he has proved to be highly proficient in combat. James is also a skilled hunter and tracker in his native Apache tradition.

Ghost Rider activated limited Apache shaman abilities within James, in order to help him fight the Demon Bear. He could perceive the creature's wounds and the resulting spirit energy when it was destroyed.

In Other Media (Film/Movie)


Warpath will appear in X-Men: Days of Future Past (confirmed by Bryan Singer in a Vine posted on his twitter)...
