Fictional character biography
Possibly a native of Ireland or Scotland, Patrick Mahony
was recruited by Mister Sinister
to serve as the leader of the Nasty Boys
as Ramrod, a group of young mutants whose first and only missions were against the governtment sponsored X-Factor
. However, he and his friend Ruckus
were more interested in beer runs and a quick buck than in Mister Sinister's agendas. In the Nasty Boys' first and only missions against the government version of X-Factor, Ramrod used his powers to great effect against the heroes, but he was ultimately subdued by the multiple fists of Jamie Madrox
. Ramrod escaped, and disappeared after Sinister effectively abandoned the Nasty Boys.
It is unknown if Ramrod retained his mutant powers after the M-Day.
