History: James Proudstar lost his brother, the original Thunderbird, in the second mission with the new X-Men. This was a source of bitterness and resentment towards Professor Xavier, whom James blamed for the death of his brother. So angered was he that he joined with the White Queen's Hellions. After coming to his senses about the White Queen and the Hellions, James went back to the reservation where his family lived. He had given up on the idea of being a costumed adventurer, good or evil, until Cable approached him to join the new team he was building, called X-Force. James declined at first but when he returned home to the reservation, he discovered that it had been completely wiped out. With nowhere to turn, James accepted Cable's offer.

He adopted the name Warpath, rather than going by his brother's codename, Thunderbird, as he had while with the Hellions, in hopes that he could bury the past. Warpath has proven himself to be an invaluable member of X-Force, supplying a great deal of raw power and speed.

He recently underwent a surge of self-confidence, during which he left the team briefly and traveled with a young woman named Risque. Risque betrayed Warpath by drugging him and delivering him to a mutant called Sledge. Sledge later informed Proudstar that a member of his tribe, Michael Whitecloud, had not died in the massacre. Sledge offered to give him to Proudstar for a fee. Proudstar accepted since Whitecloud is the only member of the tribe to know the truth about the massacre. The price Warpath has agreed to pay has not yet been revealed.
