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

by the Dark Riders on behalf of Genesis, only to meet a grisly
end as mutant death watch beetles consumed his flesh, leaving
