Powers and Abilities

Bishop's mutant power is that he can absorb energy from any substance and fire it back through his hands.

Alternate Versions

In an alternate timeline, Bishop stopped Apocalypse but the virus was not cured by Wolverine because Cable did not go back in time yet. This meant that the human race did not develop necessary antibodies and other various diseases killed off much of the population. This timeline was erased when Cable travelled back and used Wolverine to cure the virus.


Bishop was voiced by Philip Akin.

First adapted version of the character.

Replaced Kitty Pryde as the one who traveled back in time to stop the assassination.
