X-Force 62 (1997)
Mindmeld worked for Shinobi Shaw as bodyguard and general lackey alongside Clear-Cut. Shaw was working on a laser that would remove the mutant gene from any person. When the X-Force arrived on Shinobi’s island, Mindmeld used the psyche transferring ability to send Domino’s psyche to Caliban’s body and Meltdown’s psyche to Sunspot’s body. With four consciousnesses in two bodies, the mutants were readily imprisoned. Mindmeld later discovered that Clear-Cut assisted the imprisoned X-Force. In order to stop the traitor, he or she used the psyche powers to enter Clear-Cut's mind. Unfortunately, Clear-Cut used his psyche to prevent Mindmeld’s psyche from leaving his body. Shaw had no sympathy for his servant, as he planned to test his laser on the one body that contained his two employees.Mindmeld’s psyche left his body just before the laser shot, finding his or her body restrained by an inhibitor collar. Meltdown attacked Mindmeld, pummeling the assassin and destroying the lab. Shinobi Shaw’s hideout exploded and Mindmeld hasn’t been seen since.
