X is an antihero in the Dark Horse Universe with a mysterious plan for the city of Arcadia.

OriginEdit

The man known was X was once a child (whose name was lost to history) experimented on with mutated DNA and studied until he seemingly died in a fire. He awoke later with amnesia and grew up to be a violent teenager with enhanced strength and intelligence. After being murdered by a mobster (for having an affair with the mobster's wife), the man re-emerges as a serial killer named X who decides to target criminals and corrupt politicians to further his own mysterious agenda.

BiographyEdit

Child of the VortexEdit

When a vortex opened up in Cinnabar Flats, it was investigated by a number of military personnel, all of whom were changed in strange ways. One such person was a military general who only had his arm infected and had it amputated to save him. A scientist (name unknown) who was researching the effects the Vortex on it stole the arm and as he was confronted by the military in his home, he injected it to his son Johnny (last name unknown). The conflict ended with both Johnny and his father being declared dead by the military.

Johnny lived (though was covered in scars and burn marks) and ended up in a shopping plaza in the city of Arcadia. The boy found that he now had partial amnesia: he contained all the knowledge that was given to him by his education and personal experience but the actual details of his life were now lost. Now called John Smith 24, he remained a ward of the state for much of his childhood.

As John Smith grew older, he found his violent impulses harder to control, leading him to him visiting a psychiatrist. However, the two eventually grew closer, resulting in a love affair between the doctor and her patient. However, the psychiatrist was already in a relationship with a gangster, and when he learned of their affair, he had Johnny killed.
