It’s not easy being the brother of Cyclops. Introduced in X-Men #54 by Arnold Drake and Don Heck, Alex was separated from his brother after he was adopted following his parents’ plane crash. Alex would send years apart until Alex was kidnapped by the Living Monolith. The X-men rescued him but he didn’t join the team until Bolivar Trask sent Sentinels to capture him. Trask gave him the codename Havok. While on the team, he met and fell in love with Polaris, leading to a long relationship between the two. However both would eventually leave the X-men to continue their college degrees.

While he would return to the X-men a few times, he would usually leave shortly after. He would eventually be approached to lead a new Government sponsored X-Factor team. He would remain with the team until he was brainwashed by Dark Beast to serve Onslaught. He would eventually create his own Brotherhood and in a battle with Greystone, Havok was believed killed. While he body was destroyed, his mind was sent to the body of an alternate reality version of him, the leader of Mutant X. He would eventually return to the Prime universe and rejoin the X-men. After finding out that he had another younger brother, he joined Xavier in space to stop Vulcan as a member of the Starjammers.

When he returned to Earth, he joined the X-Factor Investigation and eventually lead the team after Multiple Man’s death. After the AVX, Havok was invited to lead a joint X-men and Avengers team, the Uncanny X-men, where he began a relationship with Wasp. He would leave the team after he was turned evil in Axis and joined his brother’s renegade X-men. He would aid Emma Frost in making the X-men believe that Black Bolt had killed Cyclops, knowing this wasn’t the case and that he had died by the Terrigen Mist. He has since died and was resurrected to join mutant kind in Krakoa. He would join and lead a new team of Hellions.

Unlike his brother, Havok hasn’t had many figures over the years. His first ML was part of a Walmart Exclusive Giant Man series from Toybiz. He was supposed to get another figure in the X-men Classic line but that line was cancelled before it was made. His next figure was part of the Hasbro Juggernaut wave. During the 80th Anniversary line, he received a Fan Channel exclusive 2-pack with Polaris.


First Costume

Recommend Figure:  Toybiz Walmart Exclusive Marvel Legends Giant-man series – Havok

  • Background:
    • This is Havok first costume that was given to him by Bolivar Trask. He designed it to show how much power he would have. It would also be considered his classic look as he would return to it a number of times, like the recent Hellions book.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • If you want a classic Havok for the original X-men, you will need this as well as other teams. However, this was part of an under ordered series that was exclusive to Walmart, so it will be harder to find.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • Yes.

Government Sponsored X-factor

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Fan Channel exclusive Marvel Legends 80th anniversary X-factor 2-pack – Havok with Polaris

  • Background:
    • After the original X-factor team returned to the X-men, the US Government used this opportunity to create own team of mutants in the X-factor. Havok was asked to lead the team. The team would gain a similar costume design but with each given a unique flair to them. This is Havok. It is also the costume he wore in the 90’s cartoon.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • Hasbro has been building this team over the years with only one character in the right costume that needs to be made (Wolfsbane). If you want to complete that team you will need this figures as well as the Polaris figure he comes with.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.

Uncanny Avengers

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Marvel Legends X-men Juggernaut wave – Havok

  • Background:
    • After the war between the X-men and Avengers, Havok became disgruntled with his brother. When Captain America approached Havok to lead a new team that would be a combination of X-men and Avengers, he accept. This is basically an update to his first costume.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • Another team that hasbro is close to completing, if you want to build the Uncanny Avengers, then you will need this. If you have no interest in the modern teams, then skip.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No BUT if they were to re-release it with a burnt face, I wouldn’t mind.

Needs
