X-Men : deadly Genesis # 2
( December, 2005 )
Quote1.png  always unvoiced to make decisions. Always tough to know when to let go.
When to give up. When to know adequate is adequate.
And then there are some who never learn.
And then there are others who never know when adequate is adequate.
Who are n’t stopped by common sense, or evening death.
And people like that … you want to keep an center on. Because you never know where they will lead you . Quote2.png




Armando was born different from other children. By historic period four, he was bald, his arms were longer than normal, and his eyes seemed to change. His father abandoned them around this time, and his mother blamed Darwin for his mutation. [ 1 ] He grew up in the face of rejection, with even his own mother despising him, but he did n’t hate her for that. He did everything he could to make her love him. A day came when he was asked to take an IQ test. Unknown to anyone at the clock, Armando ‘s desire to impress his mother subconsciously activated his mutant baron and allowed him to test off the charts. He was cursorily enrolled in a celebrated board educate, the Biltmore Academy for Advanced Education, but he was sent away by and large because his mother still hated him. [ 1 ] Although his teachers loved him, he was bullied constantly by other students. One day the bullies put his promontory in the toilet and Armando noticed he could breathe subaqueous. He lifted his head out and began fighting back, feeling his arms become hood, about like cement when he punched them. The bullies fled and Armando never brought up what had happened. [ 1 ] His mother then became a clayey smoker. One night she fell asleep with one of her cigarettes however lit, incidentally setting their house on fire. Armando carried her out, unaffected by the flames to the astonishment of firefighters and paramedics. Tests were done at the hospital, and scientists were brought in. Armando was told he was a mutant and was nicknamed “Darwin, the Evolving Boy” ( after Charles Darwin ) because he seemed to adapt to every condition the scientists could think of. For case, they placed him in a black room and he gained night imagination. There was even a drawn-out composition that was published about Armando. [ 1 ] unfortunately, his mother continued to reject him, denying that she could ever give birth to such a thing. Dejected, he attempted to commit suicide by jumping off the roof. rather, he became sol unaccented and soft that he about bounced when he landed on the ground. After talking about what happened with the school psychiatrist, he was told that ‘someone who works with other kids like him ‘ had read about Armando and was interested in meeting him. This person turned out to be Moira MacTaggert. [ 1 ]


Moira MacTaggert recruited Armando as one of her “ fosters ”. He was in the beginning team, along with Vulcan, Petra, and Sway to attempt to rescue the X-Men from Krakoa. [ 5 ] While Petra and Sway were killed by Krakoa, Darwin and Vulcan were swallowed in the earth by a combination of Sway and Petra ‘s dying powers. Darwin absorbed the remains of the two girls and then converted himself into energy to fuse together with Vulcan. This gave Vulcan the powers of Darwin, Petra, and Sway and enabled him to survive in space, albeit in a dormant express. [ 6 ]

M-Day & Deadly Genesis

Years by and by, the Scarlet Witch declared “ no more mutants ” and depowered most of mutantkind. The mutants who got depowered had their energies expelled from their bodies, and these energies awakened Vulcan. Rachel Summers managed to separate Darwin ‘s presence from Vulcan, who then took off for quad. While dealing with the shocking revelations of the truth about Krakoa and Vulcan, Beast found out that Darwin was even in fact alive. He was brought binding to the Xavier Institute, where Beast determined Darwin was now a being of pure energy. While not conscious, he was shown to still have brain action and was hush alert, located at the X-Mansion. once separated from Vulcan, Darwin ‘s abilities ( empowered from the energies from M-Day ) caused him to develop a physical form once more. [ 7 ]

The Rise and Fall of the Shi’ar Empire

When the X-Men ( including Warpath, Havok, Polaris, Marvel Girl, Nightcrawler, and Professor X ) left to go hunt down Vulcan and stop him from destroying the Shi’ar, it was revealed that the Professor brought Darwin with them with hope that his friendship with Vulcan would help. When Shi’ar agents abducted Professor X, Darwin followed, and secretly jumped onto their spacecraft as it fled. [ 8 ]

After successfully rescuing Xavier from his captors, Darwin was well on his way to freedom when D’Ken was revealed to be alert and well. Recaptured by the Imperium guards, Darwin failed in his try to rescue his mentor and reluctantly accepted Vulcan ‘s extend of becoming Best valet at his and Deathbird ‘s wedding. [ 8 ] Though obviously against the union, Darwin attended the marry – albeit in shackles – and was caught in the crossfire when the X-Men and Starjammers attacked. Fearing his great day to be completely ruined by the intervention, Vulcan trapped Xavier within the M’kraan Crystal. naturally fearing for his mentor ‘s safety, Darwin followed Xavier into the depths of the crystal and rescued him. He was taken to the X-Men ‘s starship with Professor X and Lilandra Neramani sent the ship on its manner back to Earth. [ 9 ]

World War Hulk

Darwin was one of the X-Men who heeded the call for aid when Hulk came to the Xavier Institute. While fighting the Hulk he evolved the ability to absorb gamma radiation. Darwin attempted to absorb da gamma radiotherapy from the Hulk alone to find that the Hulk ‘s gamma radiotherapy supply was army for the liberation of rwanda more than he could drain. His body then determined the best way to confront the Hulk was to not confront the Hulk at all, and Darwin gained teleportation powers which promptly teleported him out of the Hulk ‘s path of end. [ 10 ]

Messiah Complex

Darwin reappeared along with the X-Men and fight against the Marauders, Purifiers, Predator X, and Cable. [ 11 ]

X-Factor Investigations

erstwhile after the birth of the first mutant since M-Day, Darwin went in search of Professor Xavier because of rumors that he was alive again. While searching, Darwin encountered Nogor the Talisman, a Skrull impersonate Longshot. While in Detroit, the copulate were attacked by Jazinda and She-Hulk who were trailing Nogor. [ 12 ] [ 13 ] meanwhile, Darwin ‘s forefather hired X-Factor Investigations to help him find Darwin because he felt bad for walking out on him and his mother when he was younger. [ 12 ] After reuniting father and son, it was revealed that Hector actually wanted Darwin only to hand him over to the cryptic Karma Project. Darwin was subsequently saved by X-Factor, and agreed to join the team. [ 14 ] After joining X-Factor, Darwin helped to save Lenore from the character assassination attempts of Cortex, [ 15 ] relocated to New York City, [ 16 ] rescued the invisible Woman from Doctor Doom, [ 17 ] and crusade Bolivar Trask and his MRD. [ 18 ] After unwittingly handing Pip the Troll over to Hela, the X-Factor crowd journeyed to Las Vegas to rescue him. [ 19 ] In Vegas, the team encountered Hela ‘s undead warriors. With help from Thor, the team held their own, but the key to winning the battle was Darwin taking on gaining Hela ‘s powers and using them against her. [ 4 ]

Lone Warrior

unfortunately, taking on Hela ‘s end powers had veto effects on Darwin, who chose to leave the team for a sabbatical. [ 20 ] While wandering in the defect, Darwin experienced a dream or sight during which he battled the dragon-like Sirrush and encountered a sheriff named Tier, who claimed to be the son of Rahne Sinclair. [ 21 ] Armed with this faze information, Darwin began a trek back to New York to warn his friends. [ 22 ] [ 23 ] During his sojourn, Darwin began hearing voices telling him about Tier, and Darwin decided to kill the child himself rather of approaching his former comrades. Darwin began hunting the child, but was prevented by Tier ‘s defender, Werewolf by Night. [ 23 ] In Pennsylvania, Darwin had successfully incapacitated Werewolf by Night, and had cornered Tier, entirely to be thwarted by the interference of Vanora and Rictor. Although momentarily caught off defend by Rictor ‘s regenerate mutant powers, Darwin remained determined to continue to track Tier and kill him. [ 23 ] Compelled by forces beyond his understand, Darwin continued to track Tier to New York City where Tier tried to meet with X-Factor. however, when Darwin arrived at X-Factor Investigations Headquarters, he lacked the nerve to actually kill Tier. [ 24 ] Because he was ineffective to kill Tier to avert the Hell on Earth War, Darwin elected to rejoin X-Factor to fight the Hell Lords. [ 25 ] After the Hell on Earth War, Darwin was separated from the others and traveled back to Las Vegas to find Hela and force her to fix him. While searching for Hela, Darwin encountered a recently resurrected Monet. The copulate had a one-night stand. Afterward, Hela found Darwin, but he refused her avail. [ 26 ]

Following the establishment of a mutant state in Krakoa by Charles Xavier, Darwin became one of the countless mutants to settle in this modern nation. When a group of X-Men were sent to The Vault, a space where anyone trapped inside could remain there for subjectively thousands of years, to capture Serafina, the three mutants selected for the mission were Darwin, Synch, and Wolverine ( Laura ) since they would be able to survive the temporal changes inside it. angstrom soon as the three entered the Vault, they lost touch with the X-Men. [ 27 ] During their first day, while engaging the Children of the Vault in battle, Wolverine and Synch killed most of their foes while Darwin ‘s head got caught in a water burp from Sangre. After seeing her teammates killed, Aguja angrily killed herself by projecting a force field that destroyed everything around her in an try to kill her foes. [ 28 ] however, Darwin and his teammates recovered, with Darwin recovering due to his adaptation powers. The team then spent 100 years inside the Vault gather news on the Children. Darwin ‘s adaptation powers slowed or prevented him from aging and learned that City could resurrect any Children that were killed through clone in holy order to endlessly evolve them. City became interest in Darwin ‘s world power and captured him so it could learn how to create a raw generation of Children. Wolverine was besides captured. After Synch fled and returned to the Vault, with 100 years passing by, he rescued Wolverine, but during his rescue of Darwin, Darwin was killed by City so it could use his powers to create a new generation of Children. Synch and Wolverine were belated killed by the Children, but Synch was able to make telepathic contact with X and ensure everything they learned about the Vault was passed onto his revive shape. Wolverine and Darwin were besides resurrected. [ 29 ]


Power Grid[49]


Darwin is a mutant with an highly ductile physiology. His powers were greatly amplified after he was exposed to a massive explode of mutant energy—the energy which got expelled from mutants on M-Day [ 30 ] —while he was fused with Vulcan. [ 6 ]

  • Superior Adaptation: Darwin’s powers of self-protection offers continuous circumstantial evolution. Darwin is able to adapt to any situation. His reactive mutation adjusts his capabilities to his environment. Examples of such manifestations include receiving functioning gills after being submerged in water,[1][31] gaining night vision after being in the dark for several seconds,[32] being able to survive without oxygen when in space, his skin becoming fireproof when it is exposed to flames,[32] his body becoming pure energy,[6] his intelligence increasing itself or the understanding of the Shi’ar language by looking at it in written form. However, his powers do not always take the effect he desires.[23] For example, during his fight with the Hulk, his body teleports him away from the battle rather than supplying a power that would allow him to defeat the Hulk.[10]
    • Immortality or Near Immortality: As a byproduct of Darwin’s continuous evolution, he may, in fact, be immortal. He can survive indefinitely in harsh conditions and/or without water or nourishment. Darwin even survived Hela’s death touch.[4] He also survived 200 years while in the Vault, a location where time moved much more quickly than time in the outside world.[29]
    • Proactive Adaptation: After his battle with Hela, Darwin became able to trigger mutations that could proactively ensure his survival sometimes even by affecting others around him.[23]
  • Death Harbinger: Although many of his death deity adaptations have gone, Darwin still claims to be a death harbinger.[4][26] Darwin does appear to be able to detect when someone is dying[33] and still carries much of the darkness of Hela with him.[34][23][26]


  • Highly intelligent and speaks multiple languages due to his mutation.


  • Darwin’s father is Latino[12] and his mother is African-American.[1]
  • Darwin still has a very close father–son like relationship with Professor Xavier.[8][31]
  • Darwin was part of a love triangle with Monet and Strong Guy with both men pining after Monet in secret for some time.[3][46][41] Strong Guy and M eventually went on a date, but it ended very poorly.[47] Later, Darwin and Monet had a one-night stand.[26]
  • Although Darwin’s powers are about surviving anything by adaptation, it is possible for him to be killed as he died in the Vault.[29]
