Santo Vaccarro is a student at the Xavier Institute and a former member of the Hellions, a training group led by Emma Frost. Vaccarro grew up in the belief that one needs to intimidate others in order to earn their respect, to which end he found his genetic mutation enormously useful. Once Vaccarro enrolled at the Xavier Institute, he became a friend of Julian Keller, who went on to lead the Hellions. When his fellow student Kevin Ford, a.k.a. Wither, was apprehended by the F.B.I., Vaccarro was among the group of students who intended to forcefully oppose Ford's arrest. Although Vaccarro declined to commit criminal actions in a later incident, he is expected to offer resistance to authorities in the case of restrictive measures against mutants. In this reality, Santo was once again a champion in superhuman wrestler. After the effects of "M-Day", he was one of the few students who didn't lose their powers. The depowered students and staff were sent home; however their bus was bombed by anti-mutant religious zealot Reverend William Stryker, and Santo's former teammate and friend Tag was among those killed. The X-Men held a funeral for those students whose parents would not accept them, and Santo reflected upon how he had "failed" by not being able to save those killed.
