Jones was one of the surviving members of the D'Bari. Second-in-command to their leader Vuk, the pair conspired to harness the Phoenix Force, the cosmic entity that had destroyed their home planet. They witnesses Jean Grey's absorption of the Phoenix Force and headed to Earth, where Jones killed and impersonated a human man. Jones discovered that Jean was a mutant and relayed Jean's mental status to Vuk, who realized they could manipulate Jean in order to control the power within her, and use it to subjugate Earth in the process.
Jones and Vuk traveled to Red Hook, impersonating FBI agents in order to interrogate John Grey, where Jones witnesses Vuk torture and kill John for information. After Jean was apprehended by the U.S. military, Jones led the D'Bari on an attack on their train, which contained Professor X, Magneto, Cyclops, Storm, Nightcrawler, Selene and Ariki. Jones entered an empty train compartment and headed towards Magneto, although the latter simply crushed the compartment containing Jones before detaching it, causing an explosion and killing Jones in the process.
