Must see Episodes
Berzerker's power is fierce and so is he. Much like Roberto (Sunspot), he is quick to take offense. He refuses to admit when he's wrong, and will never be first to back down. He's got a wild streak that can be fun, but has a real dangerous edge to it. Often seen goofing off with Bobby, if he’s not blowing something up, he’s thinking of new, inventive ways to blow it up anyway.
Berserker Taller than average and having a Muscular build.
Berzerker's mutant powers allow him to generate, absorb, and manipulate/control electrical energy. He can generate bolts of electricity ranging from small shocks to destructive lightning bolts. Berzerker can overload electrical systems and cause them to explode as seen in the episode Day Of Recovery when he blew the engines of two police cars. Berzerker can absorb and redirect massive amounts of electrical energy as seen in Ascension, Part 2 when he absorbed multiple lightning strikes from Storm and redirected them against her.
Berzerker's powers cannot be used when he is wet, however. In Ascension, Part 2 Storm created rain and caused Berzerker to short out, shock himself and fall to the ground.
Berzerker was a former Morlock before he enrolled in the Xavier Institute and became a member of the New Mutants, a younger generation of mutants who were to eventually help and possibly replace the X-Men.
At the Xavier Institute, the New Mutants are putting on a display of their abilities. Berzerker was talking with fellow New Mutant members Jubilee and Magma, before being interrupted as Boom Boom dropped one of her "cherry bombs" in between them. Boom Boom starts laughing at them as the three angrily start to attack her causing a type of mutant laser tag between them.
The X-Men are training out on some cliffs with the New Mutants. Kurt is playing the victim and Boom Boom is supposed to go down on a stretcher and save him. Magma along with the rest of the New Mutants were preparing the stretcher for Boom Boom. She rides down acting really careless and blasts apart the rocks that Kurt is 'trapped' under by creating a 'bomb' and she kicks him onto the stretcher.
The stretcher starts up, but Kurt falls out. He ports back up, Tabitha starts rocking the stretcher and flinging "bombs". Logan yells down for them to cut it out, but the stretcher slams into the cliff wall. Kurt is knocked unconscious and falls. Scott blasts away the rocks below and Kurt falls into the ocean. Wolverine dives from the top of the cliff and saves him.
Back at the Xavier Institute, Charles Xavier lectures Kurt and Tabitha about the indecent early that morning while Magma talks with Sunspot. Xavier puts Nightcrawler and Boom Boom both on restrictions for two weeks, which includes being grounded, no powers, and two training sessions with Logan daily.
At the start of the house party, everyone seems to be having a great time. Meanwhile, Ray is talking with an older girl from Bayville High school. Later on in the night, Ray is dancing with one of the girls from Jean's soccer team.
At the Xavier Institute, Beast is walking outside in more of the thick fog. He literally runs into Cannonball who's playing ball with the other New Mutants. Storm didn't show up for the training session they had scheduled, so Beast subs for her. He takes them indoors to play a game of no powers volleyball. As they're playing, Sunspot spikes a ball into Berzerker's face, who yells at him that he must have used his powers to hit it so hard. A fight breaks out and the Beast is thrown into the hallway on his face.
At the Xavier Institute, Cannonball, Iceman, Berzerker, and Jubilee head down to the Danger Room. Jubilee says that they really should be out with the others searching for Jean. Ray says that last he heard they were supposed to have a DR session. Sam asks "Without an instructor?" and Bobby says that it's never stopped them before. Multiple comes running up behind them trying to catch up as no one told him that they were having a session. Ray tells him that he can't handle the Danger Room. Jubilee says that they were more experienced at this stuff than he was and closes the door in his face. Multiple walks off mad.
Later in the Danger Room, the New Mutantss are having trouble. Iceman gets them to work together and they're finally able to beat the room. Jubilee is pretty roughed up, saying that she's done and tries to leave, but the doors have been locked. The room suddenly engages again and the NM back towards the door. Upstairs in the Control Room, Jamie laughs evilly to himself as he hacks away at the DR controls. A little while later the DR doors open again, and the NM crawl out looking very disheveled (ripped uniforms, messed up hair, generally scorched). Multiple walks up and asks if they still think the DR was a piece of cake. The others get mad and Berzerker yells "Let's get him!". Multiple takes off running, but the others struggle just to stand and Jubilee says "We'll get him tomorrow". Then they slowly limp off in the other direction.
Cyclops and Mystique are about to face off but they're interrupted by police sirens and suddenly police cars and helicopters are everywhere. Everyone scatters. The New Mutants are surrounded, but Berzerker blasts the cars and leads them off through the woods. Tabitha covers their escape by blowing up some trees.
News clips are shown of the X-men identifying several of them by name. General public hysteria and fear are running rampant over mutants. The police and armed forces search for all mutants.
The New Mutants come out of hiding as two policemen walk away, and follow Berzerker into the sewers where he says he knows of a better place for them to hide.
In the sewers, the New Mutants run into a mutant named Caliban. He asks them who they are and what their business is in the sewers. Berzerker tells him that they're on the run from being hunted and that they're mutants like him. Caliban tells them that he already knew they were mutants, as he always knows. He tells them that they'll be safe here and they follow him.
Xavier mentally wakes up all of the X-kids and calls the older kids into a meeting while the younger ones have breakfast.
- Blind Alley
The mansion building has finally been completed and all that remains in the more personal touches which the X-Men handle themselves. Ray is seen stacking bricks for another fixture when Sam crashes into the wall, forcing him to start over.
It is unknown what became of Berzerker in The Future as he is last seen in a group photo with the future X-Men, the New Mutants and their unaffiliated allies. It is unknown but Berzerker might have gone back to living with the Morlocks in the future.
- It has been revealed that at some point Berzerker had some association with the Morlocks. On a couple of run-ins with the Morlocks, Ray seemed to know them quite well. Supposedly Berzerker was a former Morlock before he enrolled in the Xavier Institute and joined the New Mutants.
