The Genegineer had no powers, but used technology supplied to him by the Sugar Man to turn mutants into near-mindless slaves for the country of Genosha.
Little is known about David Moreau's early childhood. He became a scientist and a patriot who wanted to strengthen his nation of Genosha. Sugar Man offered him an opportunity to do so: The Sugar Man had come from an alternate timeline, known as the Age of Apocalypse and had obtained technology invented by his reality's Mister Sinister. Using this technology, David Moreau created the mutate-process: all inhabitants of Genosha were tested at their 13th birthday for any presence of the X-factor gene. If they tested positive, they were turned into mutates: their memories were erased and their personality changed to become completely obedient, they were sealed in special suits and their powers were genetically changed to serve the needs of their country. At this time, Moreau became known as the Genegineer (a portmanteau of "Genetic Engineer").
