Mastermind Creations comics

Warper appeared in the Mastermind Creations comic story "Cyclops' Plan". In the story Stormer, Screecher and Warper attack the White House in the year 1869, intent enslaving humans to serve the Eliminators. Cyclops contacts Screecher and orders him to wait, as humans have not advanced enough to be any use to the Eliminators. Screecher disobeys, so Cyclops sends Annihilator and an army of Screecher clones called the Crow Batallion. Although Screecher and his companions defeat the Crow Batallion, they are defeated by Annihilator. Screecher yields and follows orders from Cyclops to use organic robots to create terror and war on Earth, thus advancing human technology in mere decades to levels that would have taken centuries.[3]

Stormer appears in the "The Rising Storm", a comic that he came packed with. In that story Vladimir Lenin returns home Petrograd, Russia in March of 1917 after his exile to Switzerland. On the way he meets with Cyclops about releasing the April Theses. Cyclops assigns Screamer, Stormer, Warper and the Crow Batallion as his personal guards, who will remain hidden. As Lenin continues the socialist revolution Stormer grows bored and flies off. He is met by a the Steelian Courser, who is concerned that Cyclops and Lenin have enlisted the African warlord Conrad Jony to raise an army. The Stellian convinces Stormer that Jony's practice of using women and children as shields in war lacks honor. As the Steelian is unwilling to kill humans, Stormer kills Jony for him, ripping his limbs off and spelling out "UNCIVILIZED" with the blood. When Lenin discovers Jony's fate he decides to delay the socialist revolution until October.[4]
