Unable to control the influx of electronic signals following the manifestation of his mutant nature at age thirteen, Gareb Bashur’s parents isolated him, sending money and food so he could survive. However, as India’s telecommunications industry increased, so did the signals that Bashur received. He was saved from madness by Charles Xavier, who taught Bashur a measure of control. After learning of Bashur’s desire to control all information, Xavier broke contact. As Commcast, Bashur joined mercenaries Makeshift and Rive in forming the Executive Elite. Learning the secret of cloning, Bashur made copies of himself and his teammates, but a problem with the process ultimately prevented further duplication, leaving him one last ancillary body.
