A native of France Bevatron was recruited by the Hellfire Club for a junior team of mutants by the villainous White Queen (Emma Frost). After the loss of Firestar, Bevatron become the fire power for the group. The only mission he was a part of was a fight with the New Warriors to vie for Firestar's allegiance. Bevatron showed a lot of excitement at the opportunity to fight but would be embarrassed. During the mission Bevatron was injured when he fell from a rooftop while fighting Firestar effectively taking him out of battle. The battle was a war of attrition with the winner being shown by numbers (one on one). Bevatrons loss would put the Hellions behind. The Hellions were defeated in the end by the New Warriors. As a result Firestar would leave the team and join the New Warriors permanently.
Bevatron was created by Fabian Nicieza and Mark Bagley.

The Hellions No More
The member's of the Hellfire Club's Inner Circle were being murdered one by one leaving only a few members left, including Donald Pierce (the White Rook) and Emma Frost (the White Queen). Fearing for her life, the White Queen, would throw a ball and invite the X-Men. Her intentions were to use the ball as a means to ease tension between the two separate mutant factions [the X-Men and the Hellfire Club]. Her thoughts were that if another faction had the capacity to attack the Hellfire Club's Inner Circle, and be as successful as they were, the X-Men couldn't be far from the next target. Which, of course, couldn't be a truer statement. Though, through numerous different interactions between the two groups through-out the night, it seemed as though it would be an impossible task. As arguments seemed to break out each time. In most cases it was it was the youthful immaturity of some of the more mean-spirited Hellions like Jetstream, Roulette and Empath. The X-Men, for the most part did create many of the fights. The exception was with Iceman. He did some antagonizing as well leading to a few fights.
Towards the end of the night Emma would call a closed meeting with her and her Hellions and Storm and her X-Men (her part of the team was referred to as the Gold Team). It was during this time that the biggest fight would start, nearly creating an all out fight between the teams. Bevatron and the other Hellions readied themselves for battle and powered up, the X-Men did the same. Bevatron was especially wanting to take Storm on, due to their mutual electrical powers. Jean Grey though would interfere, mentally putting a stop to the fight. The White Queen would also use her mental powers, though it would so that she kept her team at bay, which meant she didn't have full use of her powers since they were being used already. The X-Men's telepath, Jean Grey, was also in a weakened state, and even more so when the White Queen used her power's, as the pyschic feedback was dealing tremendous damage to her already frail state, along with what she had just done (stopping the fight). Due to their power's not being fully available they would be caught off guard by the next occurrence. Two assailants, one man and on female, would enter the room. Though only one could be seen. She quickly tried to attack the White Queen. But was rebuffed and taken down as fast as she entered by Emma and her team. While they attempted to question her, the other assailant would make his presence known. Beef and, team leader of the Hellions, Jetstream were nearest to the door. With everyones attention on the female assassin no one would see the next attack coming. A bright flash of light and everyone turn and saw to their disbelief. Trevor Fitzroy had made himself visible and quickly attack both Jetstream and Beef. He would begin to absorb Beef's life essence (in effect killing him) and throw him out of the penthouse window crashing through three other high-rise buildings. Beef would continue until he plunged to his death, landing in the middle of the street a few blocks away. Jetstream though, would not be thrown, Fitzroy would keep him and absorb his entire essence killing him in mere moments. The following events in the night would have most of the group of Hellions be killed in the same manner as Jetstream. The White Queen would be placed in a coma and the X-Men would take on damage too. All the training in the world could never have prepared Bevatron for the attack he would encounter. His death along with his other team-mates in the Hellions, though unfair, would lead to the eventual reform of the White Queen, her training of Generation X and her joining of the X-Men.
Soon after Emma threw a party to which the Hellions, as well the X-Men's Gold team attended. It was during the party when Trevor Fitzroy crashed the party so in an attempt to kill Emma to gain points for the Upstarts. Reaching his conquest meant dealing with the Hellions which he had no problem doing, most of the Hellions were drained of their energies during the fight so that Trevor could create a portal. Bevatron was one of the casualties.
The Hellions including Beef would have two more appearances, though they would be postmortum (after death). In one occurrence Emma's sister Adrienne Frost was attempting to take the title and role of the White Queen in newer formation of the Inner Circle (one that Emma was not apart of). She created a psychic program in the danger Grotto (a room very similar to the Danger Room) that would have Emma and her new team of teenage mutants, Generation X, relive the last days of the Hellions. With them eventually sharing the same fate as the Hellions, and dieing in the same ways as each member of the Hellions did. All the members of Generation X would take on the appearances of each of the Hellions, save Jetstream. He would not have a living counter part, and would act on his own accord, as he would have when he was alive. The plan would fail though, with the Generation X team being able to see through the ploy and breaking free before the Hellions deaths. Emma and her team would live.
In an attempt to agitate Emma Frost, the evil D'Spayre would attack her where it hurts most. Through-out the Massachusetts Academy all of the students (Generation X) and Emma Frost are being accosted by bone chilling images. They are seeing the ghosts of Emma first students, the Hellions all through-out the campus grounds. Chaos ensues, in the end though its found that it only a ruse set by D'Spayre. The ghostly images would quickly disappear and things would be brought back to normal, once again.
He has been revived by Selene during Necrosha. He is seen with many of the other former Hellions that have also been revived.
Bevatron was a mutant with the superhuman ability to increase the personal storage of bio-electricity within the cells of his body. Bevatron could then channel this energy into radiant discharges of high-voltage energy from his hands. Bevatron's mutant abilities allow him to focus the excess bio-electricity in his cells through his fists as electric discharges in either energy charged fist or blasts of electricity. He was also able to charge his body so that he would move fast and have increased agility.

In this alternate reality, Jetstream was also a member of the Hellions, a group of young students located at the Massachusetts Academy. The significant difference though is that Emma Frost was not the individual that would bring them together and it would not be for the Hellfire Club. In sharp contrast the young mutants were students and being trained to be future agents of their High Lord Apocalypse. In the mainstream reality Earth #295, the Hellions were not truly bad, just trained by bad individuals, here though they actively participate in criminal acts which is why they were sought out for their arrests. After the fall of Apocalypse, Magneto made it his initial mission to search out all renegade mutants and followers of Apocalypse. His first targets were the Hellions, who were caught unaware at their school. As proof of is actions for the humans, he would all his and the X-Men's actions be viewable on close circuit television.
The X-Men would invade the school, taking most of the Hellions by complete surprise. Beef was attacked and easily defeated by the combined might of both Storm and Sunfire and brought in to stand trial. He, along with the other Hellions that were present during the invasion, is presumed to be currently incarcerated.
Bevatron was created by both Chris Claremont & Sal Buscema.
