History

Geldoff was a mutant who joined the 50-State Initiative[1] using the codename Proton. He and his Initiative members later fought the rampaging MVP clone KIA during a combat training exercise. Following the "death" of KIA, Proton was one of the recruits who presented a deceased Dragon Lord's ashes to his family.[2]

During the Skrull invasion of Earth, Proton was one of the Initiates from Camp Hammond who were ordered to join in the fight against the Skrulls in New York City in helping the Young Avengers. However, their arrival proved ineffective due in part to Criti Noll's machinations, and Proton was personally executed by a Super-Skrull by breaking Proton's neck while he begs for his life.[3]

The death of Proton encouraged Z'Reg, a Skrull who took the identity of Crusader, to fight for Earth.
