Ox is a member of China Force which is a team of super agents based on the Chinese zodiac. At one point they had twelve agents representing each animal from the Chinese zodiac but majority defected or were killed. The only four operatives remaining were Rat, Ox, Rabbit and Snake. The Chinese government would send China Force to Ottawa so they could bring back home a former operative named Dei Guan aka Jade Dragon because they believed he was a traitor and defected from their homeland. China Force would kill Dei Guan's escorts and subdue Jade Dragon after Rat renders him powerless with her claws laced with an inhibitor drug. China Force hoped that Dei Guan would be found guilty as a traitor and killed so a message would be sent to several members that defected which included Horse, Monkey and the Dog. They would board a plane headed back to their ship in Anchorage when they are placed under the spell of the Dreamqueen when China Force entered her sphere of influence. The Dreamqueen altered the perception of the China Force members so they believed they were back home in China and she used them as pawns to attack her most hated foes, Alpha Flight. China Force would come into conflict with Alpha Flight when they believed they were being invaded by the Canadian heroes. Ox and Rabbit would engage Sasquatch in combat but they are eventually defeated. China Force puts up a valiant fight but they are overpowered and outclassed. Laura Dean would open a warp gate to China and Shaman uses a wind spell to send Ox and the rest of China Force back home.
Ox was created by Bill Mantlo and Jim Lee in 1988 and first appeared in Alpha Flight # 64.
Ox and the rest of China Force would reappear later and come into conflict with a group of Chinese rebels called 3 Peace which consisted of Jade Dragon, Nuwa and the Collective Man. 3 Peace would join forces with the Mutant Liberation Front when they offered to help free the mutants that were being detained by the Chinese Government. China Force would come into conflict with both teams when they infiltrated a facility that was being used to search for mutants within the borders of China. Ox comes after Nuwa but he gets double teamed by Jade Dragon and Forearm. Rabbit is killed during that battle but Ox, Rat and Snake continue to serve as a member of China Force.
Ox is present at the Hole located in the sovereign nation of Bagalia when Venom confronts Taskmaster in attempts to retrieve a mystical item in his possession called the Crown of Wolves. During the brawl in the bar, Tiger Shark bites Ox on his left arm.
