The man known as Bastion is actually the reincarnation of two separate entities. One is the original, mutant-hunting robot Sentinel known as Master Mold and the other, his extreme from an alternate future, the ultimate Sentinel, Nimrod. A component of Master Mold was activated by contact with Nimrod. Using Nimrod's body and materials from a construction site as his own body, the Master Mold sought out the mutant heroes X-Men. The X-Men defeated the robot by pushing its body through the mystical portal known as the Siege Perilous, with presumably help from Nimrod, who influenced Master Mold into thinking itself as a mutant and therefore a thing needing to be destroyed.
The Siege Perilous presumably judged the combined entities, and Nimrod and the Master Mold were recreated as a human. The early history of Bastion remains unrevealed, but it is known that he spent years being brought up by the Rose. Bastion nevertheless held a deep resentment for mutants, and decided to dedicate his life to anti-mutant causes. Bastion entered politics, and after many years rose to a position leading Operation: Zero Tolerance, a variation of the original Sentinel-building program on behalf of the United States government.
