Born Armando Munoz to a Latino mother and a black father. He was despised by his mother early on as his powers manifested shorty after birth and not the typical puberty phase of most mutants. His mother eventually handed him over to the government who experimented on the boy. He was rescued by Moira Mctagert who made him a member of her X-men team. When the original X-men went missing him and his friends where recruited by Professor X to rescue them but most died while Darwin joined with teammate Vulcan to survive. Years later when Vulcan returned and fought the team he separated from him and regenerated his own body. He traveled into space with the X-men to battle his former friend who had seized control of the shiar empire. He was instrumental in saving the professor’s life before returning to earth. Darwin participated in defending the school from Hulk and defending the mutant messiah Hope before joining X-Factor investigations where he developed a crush on Monet St. Croix In a battle with the Asgard god of death Hela he manifested her own powers and proclaimed himself the new God of death. He has since left the team to do some soul searching.
