- I was a rodeo hand. The best one, but still a rodeo hand. What kind of life is that? Riding animals as they try to throw me off. But now, I have more fun where I am. My duty is to be the best damn X-Man I can be.
Suvik Senyaka is a mutant and former member of the X-Men.
Suvik Senyaka was born to two African parents in America, during a time where slavery still existed. He was always abused by the whites, and his life was very lonely. He consistently contemplated suicide, but his parents always found him. The sad thing was that no psychiatrist would treat him. So, eventually, he learned to get over his pain, and as a teenager, slavery ended. Most people immediately apologized to him, but some would despise him for the rest of his life. Soon, though, his mutant powers manifested, and he decided they would be good for one use only, the rodeo. There, he could ride animals and inflict the pain that was caused to him. For a time, he was gentle with the animals, but he began suffering from violent flashbacks, and he began killing the animals. Soon, an angry mob formed, and he was chased from the rodeo.
While running, everyone froze and fell over. Suvik was terrified about what would happen to him. Suddenly, a man descended from the sky and introduced himself as a mutant with telepathy and telekinesis. He informed Suvik that he was also a mutant who could drain life essence and create whips or enhance his own body. He told him that fellow mutants were endangered, and his knowledge of many environments could help. Desperate to escape the mob, he agreed, and took the codename Whiplash. He was safe from the mob, and he took a brilliant red and blue costume, taking the name Whiplash. After a fairly short spell with the team, he resigned from active membership, and decided to try another shot at the rodeo, now that he had more control over his powers and anger.
