The former Hellfire guard that became a Cyborg, Reese is one of many characters that was created to be part of one team. Introduced in X-Men #133 (1980) by Chris Claremont and John Bryne, Reese was once a nameless Hellfire guard that was attacked by Wolverine when the Hellfire Club kidnapped the X-men and tried to brainwash Jean Grey into their Black Queen during the Dark Phoenix Saga. Along with Macon and Cole, he was badly injured. Donald Pierce then turned them into a Cyborg and had them join his Reavers team.
He was seemingly by Sentinels sent by Fitzroy but it was later discovered that the Reavers might be able to upload their minds into cloned/robotic bodies. He was later killed by Psylocke again but returned with the rest of the Reavers in order to rescue Pierce from ONE.
And that’s pretty much it. Reese (along with Cole and Macon) is one of the three more generic members of the Reavers. Hell, if you look them up, the three of them have the exact same design with different hair style and skin color. However, Hasbro is given us a Reese head with the Skullbuster figure.

- Like I said, Reese is one of the more generic members of the Reaver, usually only seen in the background and usually with Macon and Cole. The body design is not right but take what you can get.
- Why you need it for your collection?:
- If you are an X-men fan that grew up reading the Outback era of the X-men and want Lady Deathstrike to have someone to stand with, then you could get this. With this figure we now have 2 members of the Reavers. I recommend getting 2 so you can have 2 members of the Reavers. If you are a customizer, then you can get another to repaint it into Cole and Maccon (who may come in another set but for now don’t hold your breath)
- Does it need a remake?:
Below you will find a gallery of suits that still need to be made. I have included what I think are the possibilities of the suit being made. Note that these are my personal opinions and not fact. Please let me know if I have missed anything.
None at the moment
