I was surprised to come across this character, as I was looking some stuff up about him (I was introduced to him after Decimation.), and it says that he was a rapist in his early appearances. I've never read the original Hellions storylines (I do have the issues where they get killed off by Fitzroy, though.) so I don't know much about how his character was, but I do remember Magma comforting him after he was blinded by Pixie. And upon researching the two of them, they were in a relationship. Um, if Empath was a sexual sadist, why did Amara gravitate towards him? I'm not sure if that makes sense for the character. Also, did he ever get his sight back? Has he been seen since Secret Wars? He sounds like such a strange character. Thanks.

One of the earliest things he did was mind control Sharon Friedlander and Tom Corsi into BDSM stuff. Not on panel. It was 1984. Rape is probably the most exact real world term for that.

Magma and Empath is one of the many things people disliked about Louise Simonson's New Mutants.

I don't think he's been seen since that X-Men Heroic Age one-shot, and that was sort of a cameo. He was attacked by a technozombie Harry Leland in "Necrosha." Also a sort of cameo in "Second Coming." His last major story was when he was part of Maddie Pryor's crew in early Uncanny X-Men #500s.
