In another timeline, Cole MacGrath lived peacefully with his wife Trish Dailey, and their two daughters. Until a creature of terrible power known as The Beast appeared seemingly from nowhere and made short work of all humanity. In those early days, Cole could've used his power to stop it, but instead, he fled with his family, leaving others to fend for themselves. After the eventual death of his wife and children, Cole used his newest and most dangerous power to travel back in time to the 60's to prepare and ready for The Beast's arrival. Abandoning his identity as Cole MacGrath, he took control of the First Sons and took up the name...Kessler.
