War was the first of her name to serve in Apocalypse's Horsemen. She, alongside her fellow Horsemen, was sealed away on Arakko. They ended up in the dimension of Amenth which was populated by endless hordes of Daemons. Her mother Genesis and the other mutants that were left on Arakko made the island their home and built towers to protect them from the threat of the Daemons. Through these years, War had a union with a fellow mutant Bracken and together conceived the Summoner. Her husband would later be killed by Solem.
However, after her mother fell at hands of Amenth's dark god and leader of the Daemons, Annihilation, the Daemons finally managed to destroy Arakko's towers and attack its mutant population. In a last ditch effort to save Arakko, War and the surviving mutants send the Summoner to Earth to find her father Apocalypse. However, her mother was actually still alive and combined with Annihilation, which lead to the Daemons and Arakko's forces joining together and decided to invade Krakoa.
After months had passed, War, alongside her siblings, the other Horsemen, began leading the Daemon armies, and assaulted Otherworld in order to access Krakoa. After reuniting with their father, the Horsemen and Summoner attacked Apocalypse and launched an attack on the accompanying members of the X-Men. The fight was broken up by the Omniversal Majestrix Saturnyne who offered each side to participate in the challenge of the Ten of Swords for victory, to which they agreed.
After War got her sword, she alongside the Swordbearers of Arakko went to the Starlight Citadel where the tournament would be held.
