Arclight was a member of the Marauders, a team of superhuman assassins brought together by the mutant thief Gambit when he was in the employ of the enigmatic Mr Sinister. On Sinister's orders, the Marauders massacred the underground community of mutants known as the Morlocks. In the course of the massacre, the Marauders, including Arclight, clashed with various superhuman champions, including the superhuman mutant adventurers known as the X-Men.
The Marauders, including Arclight, originally died during the demonic invasion of Manhattan that came to be known as the "Inferno", but Sinister has the technology to continually clone the Marauders thanks to his retaining samples of their DNA.
For a brief time, Arclight served as a member of the all-female superhuman army of the extradimensional warrior woman known as Superia, known as the Femizons. During this time, Arclight clashed with the super-soldier known as Captain America and the mercenary named Paladin.
Recently, Arclight has come to join the mutant refugee camp on the grounds of the Xavier Institute, the inhabitants of which have come to call themselves the 198.
