general scotland was a simple man living on earth 523, before the english empire forced him from his home, and into fighting. he began a resistance movement, using an old energy rifle and his grandfather's sword. he is fast, agile, and due to the blessing of an old celtic god, he has superhuman strength as well. he was transported to earth 616 to recruit help from what he expected would be an independant scotland just as advanced as his own world's futuristic elizabethan era technology. he was dissapointed, but stayed to help excalibur in several ventures against the brotherhood of mutants.
