Caliban was a German mutant with the ability to track and sense other mutants. He once worked as an information broker and black marketeer in East Berlin.


X-Men: Apocalypse

Mystique relied on Caliban to fabricate identification for Nightcrawler so that he could be safely transported to the US. Later, Caliban was visited by Apocalypse, Death, Famine, and War. Apocalypse recruited Caliban's bodyguard, Psylocke, as one of his horsemen, after unlocking her powers.


In 2029, Caliban lives in an abandoned smelting plant on the Mexican border--with Logan, caring for a senile Charles Xavier. A year prior, Xavier had a seizure and his uncontrolled telepathy accidentally killed the X-Men--which is why he is in the care of Caliban and Logan.

When Donald Pierce comes looking for Laura at the smelting plant, he is knocked out by Laura and Caliban puts him in a car---driving to the middle of nowhere. However, Pierce wakes up and Caliban is threatened at gunpoint, then taken as a hostage by the Reavers. He is tortured by being exposed to sunlight which blisters his skin, until he agrees to track down Logan and Laura.

Caliban later detonates two grenades in the Reavers van, killing himself and some Reavers in the explosion.
