When the alternate timeline known as the Age of Apocalypse was inadvertently created by Legion, the
Cavaliers were on one of their many impromptu (and, as usual, unintentional)
dimension-hopping adventures. When the team returned to Earth, they found themselves in a world completely unknown to them.
Worse still two members of the team vanished, having been merged with their counterparts in this alternate reality. Those two
Cavaliers were Midnight Express and
Card Shark or, as they were known in this timeline, Scattershot and Longshot
Scattershot is a wanted criminal, a renegade mutant and sometime ally of Gambit & the
Externals. His usual area of operation is the devastated west coast of North America, but with his speed (which
rivals that of Magneto's son Quicksilver) he can get just about anywhere in short order. He also carries two
specially-designed pistols loaded with high-density projectiles. The guns don't actually fire, he just uses
them for aim and lets his mutant control over kinetic energy do the rest.
Longshot is a bartender in Warren Worthington's bar, Heaven. He is also a covert ally of Magneto's X-Men, passing on
what information he can pick up from the numerous members of Apocalypse's elite who
frequent the establishment. Longshot's control over probability allows him to grant himself or an ally a run
of good luck when most needed or an enemy a bad break when they least need it. His amiable personality and
"good luck" have thus far kept Apocalypse's security forces from suspecting him but lately it seems
that his luck has been running out.
