During a quest to stop Legion from altering history, Bishop acted as a chronal anchor with Psylocke using her psychic knife to link all the time displaced X-Men together. They were ultimately unsuccessful. When Legion accidently killed Charles Xavier in the past, he triggered a new timeline: the Age of Apocalypse.

During the Age of Apocalypse, Bishop aged and saw the world change, while retaining memories from the original timeline. These memories of the 'real' timeline compelled Magneto and his X-Men to set the timeline right. Using the M'Kraan Crystal, Destiny and Illyana Rasputin sent Bishop back in time to stop Legion. There, he briefly confronted his younger self, imploring him to 'remember this day.' The elder Bishop stopped Legion from killing Xavier and the original timeline was restored. Both the elder Bishop and Legion were destroyed by Legion's psionic energy.

The original Bishop retained some of his elder self's memories.

Powers and Abilities



Energy Absorption: Bishop is a mutant who can absorb most types of energy directed toward him. He can then rechannel it through his body for concussive blasts or in the same form that was absorbed. This rechanneled energy is apparently able to damage beings normally immune to their own powers. The nature of his powers makes it difficult to damage him with energy-based attacks, while also enabling him to work well with any energy-using teammates. Bishop can also store absorbed energy within his personal reserves, whereupon the energy increases his strength and recuperative abilities, as well as affording him a measure of invulnerability. The upper limits of his ability to enhance his own physical abilities with absorbed energy is not exactly known but is well into the level of being super human.

  • Concussive Blasts.
  • Healing.
  • Enhanced Strength.
  • Near-Invulnerability.


Bishop is a trained police officer, skilled in the homicide branch. Bishop has also had many years of armed and unarmed combat training has made him a devastating unarmed combatant, and a superb marksman with firearms, both from his own time, some of which he brought with him from the future when he originally arrived in our present, and also both heavy duty military and conventional guns and weapons of the present time.

Strength level

When not enhanced by his ability to absorb energy Bishop possesses the normal human strength of a man of his age, height, and build who engages in intensive regular exercise.


Bishop was unable to absorb energy from inertial impacts such as hitting walls. This does not mean he was incapable of absorbing kinetic energy. Kinetic effects such as an exploding card from Gambit were absorbable. It would seem that as of late he is learning to absorb inertial impact energy, however he still cannot do so with anywhere near the efficiency of Shaw or Agent Zero. Whether it is possible to increase this ability in time with practice is unknown.

  • Some energy types are more difficult to absorb than others. Bishop can be overloaded by trying to absorb too much energy.
  • Although he can absorb psionic energy from blasts or telekinetic attacks, Bishop is not immune to telepathic attacks.
