Character Details

Summary: Sharing a name with a long-time villain of the X-Men, Pyro has the ability to control fire with his mind. Unlike his predecessor, Simon Lasker is able ignite fire on his own rather than manipulating flames that already exist. Despite beginning his mutant career as a member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, Simon Lasker has become an important member of the mutant nation of Krakoa. Pyro has played an integral role on a number of X-Men teams and has solidified himself as a source of comedic relief for these series.
