William Stryker vs. mutants
Being a military scientist in the American army,William Stryker was one of the developers of the "Weapon X" program, which consisted in creating a super-soldier for government needs. For example, they invented adamantium - metal, which is covered with Wolverine's skeleton.
One day, driving with his wife across the desert in the stateNevada, they had to stop because of a car breakdown. In addition to this, Marcy started fights, so William had to take delivery on his own. Everything went smoothly, only the child turned out to be a mutant. Accusing his wife, he killed her. And after he made several attempts to commit suicide, but remained alive, making certain conclusions from this.
He decided that he could not die, because God neededon the ground. The illness of his son, and that is how he called the feature of Jason, was a sign from above. Now he will devote his life to the extermination of mutants, because they are the personification of evil and a threat to the whole world.
William becomes a preacher on television,so that as many people as possible can experience the same hatred that he experienced. So the group "Purifiers" appeared, the members of which were supposed to catch and destroy mutants. True, behind the loud name was too weak an organization. Of course, they were lucky to kill several inexperienced pupils of Professor Xavier. But then William was immediately caught and arrested, and his company itself disintegrated.
Returning from prison, William Stryker did not staywithout causes. After all, his belief that all mutants - evil, not only did not run out, but even more intensified. He met Nimrod - the guardian of the alternative universe (the series "Days of the past future"), which already several times moved in time. Taking advantage of his memory, William learned a lot about the future. This allowed him to warn people who were soon threatened with danger. One of these was the first-class shooter - Matthew Ryshman. It was such people who revived the once-forgotten group "Purifiers". Only now their activities have become much more effective.
Inspired by events that occurred during the"Day-M," when many mutants could not return from the reality created by the Scarlet Witch, the followers of William Stryker began their hunt. Then they got to many mutants. For example, died Laurie Colins (Wallflower), able to control pheromones. And with it, the winged mutant Icarus ceased to breathe. They were all part of the new detachment of Professor Xavier. True, Stryker was able to stop the mutant Omega-level - Elixir. But the "Purifiers" this time did not disappear, they had a new leader - Matthew Rysman.
There was a time when Stryker's services were neededBastion - cybernetic guard, hating mutants. He had to work with Graydon Creed, Stephen Lang and Bolivar Trask. When Bastion tracked down Hope Summers and Cable, he sent a team of "Purifiers" to kill them.
Even the "X-Men" that came to this timewere in a difficult situation. After all, the followers of Bastion had a ritual, thanks to which many mutants lost their abilities. The situation was saved by Warren Worthington. By taking the form of the Archangel, he turns the "Purifiers" and kills William Stryker, cutting it in half.
