HISTORY: Barnell Bohusk has lived a difficult life since his mutation first manifested. At Xavier's he befriended the Beast, finding a common bond with the X-Man with the most severe physical mutation. It was this bond that led him to visit the Beast with a gift, a baseball bat. Horribly, Beak was mentally possessed by a Cassandra Nova-controlled Charles Xavier and forced to beat his mentor brutally. The Beast would eventually recover but Beak's guilt over the event never went away.

Mocked by his peers at the Xavier Institute for his seemingly useless mutation, Beak gravitated towards a group of young mutants known as the special class - mutants with little drive and less ability. Ironically, in this class Beak truly began to realize his worth as a hero. The other special class students began to look up to him as a leader and he filled that role as best he could. This group also included his girlfriend and the mother of his children, Angel.

This group was mentored by Xorn who secretly believed he was Magneto. Beak and the rest of his special class followed Xorn, becoming the new Brotherhood in his takeover of the world. Beak stood up to Xorn and was cast out of the Brotherhood. He and a small group of X-Men were able to overtake Xorn and free New York City from his grip.

Soon after, the Exiles arrived at the Xavier Institute and Beak was forced to join their reality-fixing group. He left Angel and his children behind, unable to say goodbye to them. Angel assumes he deserted her. Since joining the Exiles, it has seems that Beak is the weakest link in the Exiles chain, but perhaps he is destined to perform some crucial, heroic feat in the future.
