John Proudstar always preferred the company of animals over people. He felt humanity was overly self-righteous and arrogant, but that the wonders of nature were beautiful and calming. Eventually, John discovered that the reason he loved nature so much was because he had the ability to communicate with it on a spiritual level, and channel it’s power into his own body.
He was eventually tracked down by a woman named Emma Frost, who revealed to him that he was a mutant. She told him about a group she was a part of, called the Brotherhood of Mutants, and explained to him that their purpose was to help Mutants take their rightful place in the world.
John was hesitant, but Emma was able to manipulate his disdain for humans by reminding him of the atrocities that the American settlers committed against his people. He then agreed to accompany her to Genosha, where he was introduced to several other Mutants in the Brotherhood.
For a time, John fought alongside them as the Thunderbird, but never quite understood the team’s rivalry with the X-Force. He figured since they were all Mutants they should be fighting side by side. This belief is eventually what led to him leaving the Brotherhood.
The X-Force immediately tried to recruit him, but he turned down their offer, having grown weary of all the violence. Since then, he has returned to his family’s reservation to dedicate his life to protecting nature from the evils of man.
