History: J.E. Richter is a mutant with the superhuman power to generate powerful waves of vibrations which resemble earthquakes. He was once captured by the Right (a subversive organization founded by Cameron Hodge and dedicated to the elimination of all superhuman mutants to ensure that they cannot dominate normal humanity) and used by them to create havoc in San Francisco. Rictor was freed by X-Factor and became their trainee. During this time he became a member of the X-Terminators, which contended with N'astirh and his demons in New York during the "Inferno".

Rictor joined the New Mutants and went with them to Asgard, to battle Hela. He later fought Caliban, and was severely injured by Sabretooth, although Cable and the New Mutants arrived in time to save him. As a member of the New Mutants, Rictor stood alongside them as they assisted Cable in his fight against Stryfe and the Mutant Liberation Front. Rictor was captured and briefly enslaved in Genosha. After that ordeal he left the New Mutants hoping to bring Wolfsbane back with him from Genosha. Rictor, convinced that Cable had been the man who killed his father (it was actually Cable's clone, Stryfe), agreed to join Weapon PRIME in trying to capture Cable. By this time the New Mutants had evolved into X-Force and with their help Weapon PRIME's mission to capture Cable failed. Rictor eventually returned to join X-Force in time to be captured by the X-Men and X-Factor. Rictor and the X-Force team moved into the X-Men's mansion, which they now use as their main headquarters.
