- It's not hard to make a difference for a small Kentucky town. But you can't do it for the world, I learned that the hard way. But you seem to think the X-Men can save the world. And Sam Guthrie, human cannonball, is on your side.

Samuel Guthrie was born into a large family. He had at least 5 siblings, and every single one spent their time working the farm. Samuel always wanted a greater purpose, as much as he loved the farm. Soon he manifested mutant abilities, including flight and limited invulnerability. He would do his farm-work a lot quicker, in order to spend his time flying around the Kentucky countryside. He became a part-time guitar player in Nashville as well. He eventually came out to his family in regards to his powers, and he was still welcomed among his family. He began using his powers to help with farm-work.
He was soon approached by Charles Xavier. He had heard that Sam was in fact a mutant. He revealed that he too was a mutant, but he was a telepath. He said that he had never seen mutant powers quite like Sam's, and he was considerably impressed. He informed Sam that his first group of mutants went missing on a mission. He requested Sam's help in getting them back, and with permission from his family, he left. His invulnerability while flying were an asset on Krakoa, and he was able to help save them. Krakoa opened Sam's eyes, and he was happy to finally see the world through the eyes and ears of the X-Men. And after forming a relationship with fellow teammate Skids, he never felt better.
