Northstar was among the prisoners of the island nation of Genosha. He, along with many other mutants, provided slave labor for the government using their mutant skills for such tasks as building dams and the like. They wore special collars that restrict them from using their powers to escape and sleep in prison-like cells. They eventually escaped Genosha with the help of the X-Men and Cable.

Northstar returned to the Canadian Special Forces team Alpha Flight, which tried to convince former member Wolverine to re-join.


Northstar was voiced by Rene Lemiux.
