Holocaust originally comes from an alternate timeline in which Apocalypse conquered North America. Holocaust first appeared in human form as the entity Nemesis, and attacked the base of that timeline's version of the X-Men, located at Wundagore Mountain. The mutants Rogue and Scarlet Witch, with the latter sacrificing her life in the battle, drove off nemesisís attack. In retaliation, Scarlet Witch's father, Magneto, who led that timeline's X-Men, attacked and almost slew Nemesis, requiring the latter to be placed into an energy containment suit to prevent death.
Nemesis, who had renamed himself Holocaust, returned and rose to the level of Horseman in Apocalypse's army. During an assault on Apocalypse's Citadel by the X-Men, Holocaust fell into battle with the mutant X-Man. During the fight, X-Man stabbed Holocaust with a shard of the S Crystal, which is a nexus for all realities, and both Holocaust and X-Man disappeared.
Holocaust reappeared in the "mainstream" X-Men's reality, encased in a cocoon of ice orbiting the Earth. The cocoon was recovered by the Acolytes and brought aboard their space station Avalon. Holocaust awakened inside Avalon and began to battle the Acolytes' leader Exodus, which resulted in the destruction of Avalon. Both Exodus and Holocaust were sent hurtling to Earth.
