Little is known about the past of Silas Burr prior to his commanding the special Canadian Army unit the Devil’s Brigade during World War I. The unit came to count amongst its number a soldier named Logan, later the mutant adventurer Wolverine. At some point, Burr murdered a young woman that Logan was romancing and brutally beat the young soldier, gouging out one of his eyes and psychologically scarring him for decades to come.
