Tension was a mutant that was infected by the Brood
when they attempted to invade Earth. A paramedic named Harry Palmer
was implanted with a Queen egg and started infecting mutants to create a Brood force with abilities to rival the X-Men
. Numerous mutants were infected including Tension, Brickbat
, Dive-Bomber, Lockup
. Tension would snare Storm
with his tentacles while Temptress tries to overload her system with her pheromones. Storm escapes when she sweeps herself away by manifesting a powerful wind gust. Tension and some of his infected Brood teammates would later engage the X-Men at a concert area. Tension gets hit by a plasma blast from Havok
and is killed when a wall crushes him during the fight. The rest of his infected teammates are slain by the X-Men because the host are beyond saving.
Tension was created by Chris Claremont
and Marc Silvestri
