History: Wildchild began his career as a costumed adventurer when Canada's Department H recruited him, as a trainee to be one of their superhuman agents. However, Wildchild and other trainees broke away from the Department and formed the renegade team Omega Flight. As a member of Omega Flight, Wildchild repeatedly battled the Canadian team of costumed adventurers Alpha Flight.

A cure was finally found for Wildchild's bestial urges, and in fact, his appearance was also improved. No longer an unrefined animal, Wildchild first took on the code-name Weapon Omega, and later, Wildheart.

Unfortunately, Kyle recently reverted back to his more feral appearance and personality, though he has more self-control now, and is currently a member of X-Factor.
