Stryker sent Jason to Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters in the hope of curing his mutation, regarding it as a disease. However the school's headteacher, Professor Charles Xavier had no interest or belief in 'curing' mutants, which angered Stryker. Additionally, Jason grew increasingly angry, resentful, and vindictive towards his parents, torturing them by planting illusions in their brains and ultimately causing his mother committed suicide by drilling into her own brain in order to "bore the images out". In response, Stryker gave his son a lobotomy to make him more docile (as well as presumably taking him away from Xavier).
Stryker eventually found a way to harvest a fluid from Jason's brain which he used to control mutants such as Nightcrawler, Deathstryke and a captured Cyclops. When a kidnapped Xavier's mind proved too strong for the fluid, Stryker instead tried to use Jason's mental powers to directly manipulate the X-Men founder into using Cerebro II, a reproduction of Cerebro, to kill all mutants.
Magneto, wearing a helmet designed to shield against telepathic attacks, was able to reach Xavier, but then had Jason make Xavier use Cerebro II to kill ordinary humans instead of mutants. Magneto escaped and soon thereafter Storm and Nightcrawler entered Cerebro II and disrupted Jason's illusion, freeing Xavier from Jason's control before any humans or mutants could be killed.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Illusion casting: He can create illusions in another persons mind and also brainwash them.
It is possible to break out of his illusions if he doesn't feel himself very well, like having it very cold.
