Paulie Provenzano lived in Brooklyn and tried to join the mafia after he was discharged from the U.S. Army. The Mafia rudely rejected and attempted to kill him because of his mutant power of invulnerability. Paulie took out the goons and earned the attention of Jean Grey who recruited him into a new team of X-men who would fly to the island nation Genosha to try to stop Magneto.
Omerta was created by Scott Lobdell and Salvador Larroca and first appeared in The Uncanny X-Men #392 (2001).

When the X-men reached Genosha, Paulie was very overconfident and apparently didn't realize how dangerous Magneto really was. Paulie stated that he was not scared of "some guy wearing a bucket on his head." This angered Magneto and Magneto attempted to manipulate Paulie using the iron in his blood but Magneto was unable to dos so because of Paulie's powers of invulnerability.
Although Magneto could not totally manipulate the iron in Paulie' body, he was still able to levitate him. Magneto levitated Paulie into space and coldly asked Northstar if he thought he was fast enough to save Paulie before he suffocated. Northstar flew as fast as he possibly could and was barely able to save Paulie. He took Paulie to a U.S. warship and gave him mouth to mouth, saving his life. Paulie disliked that Northstar had given him mouth to mouth but was still thankful of Jean-Paul for saving his life.
After the battle, Paulie declined to remain an X-man and left the mansion. His current whereabouts are unknown although he might have been one of the many mutants that were killed in gas chambers in Neverland Camps.
Note: Omerta was planned to be in the Neverland Camps in the Weapon X series, and supposedly died, but due to a coloring mistake, it cannot be confirmed that it was him in the gas chambers after all.
