Unit is a highly advanced Robot created by an advanced Alien race who had god-like science. Until now Unit demonstrated mind control and techopathy and super intelligence.
Unit's complete origin is unknown. Billions of years ago, his creators were giving charity to those who accepted it, but those who didn't attacked those who did. Consequently, Unit's creators were forced to take necessary steps - Unit was one of them. A Unit would be dropped onto a planet to speak with its inhabitants then retreat, and when the creators returned, the inhabitants would be pacified. For a few hundred thousand years, it worked out well until other aliens had enough and united against them.
Unit's creators were decimated, with Unit surviving as the sole artefact of their empire. Their programming remains in him, even as he contemplates the moral righteousness of their goal. If he succeeds, his creators were right; otherwise, his creators were monsters beyond the worst tyrants, and the end justifies the means.
A billion years prior to the present, Unit came a cross a planet where he witnessed the rulers' demons cast a spell to stop evolution. This angered the Phoenix. The spell worked for a time, until a Phoenix Messiah arose and, with five acolytes, she was able to control the Phoenix and restart evolution. Unit grew interested in the Phoenix Force, and desires to see a Phoenix Messiah rise without the means to control the Phoenix (the Lights).
It's unknown when S.W.O.R.D. captured Unit. He was held in the maximum security. Due to his intelligence, he was occasionally asked for help, which he willingly gave.
Recently, Unit escaped and landed on Earth where he set his sight on mutants.
