Legion, real name David Haller is a Mutant and son of Charles Xavier. He was originally persuaded by Xavier and the X-Men to help him until he joined Apocalypse and became one of his Horsemen of Apocalypse taken under the name Famine.


David was the son of Charles Xavier and Gabrielle Haller. David's parents' marriage, however, did not last long because of Xavier's primary responsibility to helping and teaching other mutants and leaving David under the care of his mother. Since then, David grew to despise his father for leaving his family over his personal pursuits.

When David was attending high school, he unexpectedly manifested his mutant powers in which he developed a split personality. In which David's body can somehow change to match whichever of his multiple personalities is dominant, with personality and body shifts, and each controlling a different aspect of David's psionic power. The known personalities are: Lucas, a Scottish punk who commands David's pyrokinesis, and Ian, a young and seemingly mute boy who can create powerful telekinetic powers. These personalities can communicate with David, who initially did not realize them as his personalities throughout his life.

David later attended Oxford University where he continued to believed that Lucas and his "brother" Ian are roommates and without ever realizing that his other personalities would take over his body. When Lucas took control of David, he encountered Sinister and was offered to join the side of Apocalypse in order to have a chance of retribution against Charles Xavier. The next day, David was unexpectedly reunited with Charles while he was accompanied by Moira McTaggart of Excalibur, whom told him about his mutant powers. Initially David was skeptical until he realized now about the Lucas and Ian personalities. After this sudden revelation, Sinister appeared and allowed the Lucas personality to take over. The result was a battle between Lucas and Sinister against the X-Men and Excalibur which forced Apocalypse to intervene and taking David/Lucas with him.
