HISTORY: Little is known about Silas Burr prior to his World War I command of the special Canadian Army unit, the Devil’s Brigade, including Logan, later known as Wolverine. At some point, Burr murdered a young woman that Logan was romancing and brutally beat the young soldier, gouging out one of his eyes and psychologically scarring him for decades to come.

In recent years, Burr had his skin laced with unbreakable Adamantium. Known as Cyber, he joined a drug cartel and was sent to Madripoor to oversee distribution of a new hallucinogenic. Cyber targeted Madripoor’s leading crimelords, Tyger Tiger and General Coy, only to clash with Wolverine, now Tiger’s ally. In the ensuing battle, Cyber lost an eye before falling into the hallucinogen, which drove him mad.

Replacing his lost eye with a cybernetic one, Cyber led the mercenary Hell’s Belles against the government sponsored mutants of X-Factor. He was next employed by the Coven cult to retrieve a mystic gem but again opposed by Wolverine. Later tracking Wolverine to Muir Island, Cyber fought the British super-team Excalibur before being trapped in a high security chamber. He was freed by the Dark Riders on behalf of Genesis, only to meet a grisly end as mutant death watch beetles consumed his flesh, leaving only the Adamantium.

SUPERHUMAN POWERS: Cyber was a mutant with superhuman strength and the ability to psionically track individual brain patterns within his immediate vicinity. Exposure to a massive dose of hallucinogen enhanced this range to a radius of several miles. Cyber also possessed a healing factor that enabled him to quickly recover from injury and greatly slowed his aging.

SPECIAL SKILLS: Cyber was a skilled instructor in unarmed combat methods.

SPECIAL LIMITATIONS: Cyber was driven insane by exposure to a hallucinogenic drug, causing him to suffer mildly distracting delusionary side effects.

PERSONAL ACCESSORIES: Cyber’s skin and hair were laced with the metal Adamantium, making him virtually invulnerable to physical injury. Cyber also possessed a cybernetic left eye.

PERSONAL WEAPONRY Cyber possessed a single retractable Adamantium claw on each hand, one coated with a deadly poison, the other with a hallucinogen.
