History

X-Men: First Class

In 1962, Riptide was a member of the Hellfire Club. He attacked Division X with Azazel and Sebastian Shaw.

Riptide later joined his teammates to fight against the X-Men. During the Cuban Missile Crisis, while Erik Lehnsherr was magnetically pulling Shaw's submarine out of the water, Riptide created a tornado, causing both the X-Jet and the submarine to crash on the beach. He was knocked out when Erik pulls a piece of the submarine hull out on top of him. After Sebastian Shaw is killed, Riptide joins Magneto's new Brotherhood of Mutants, along with Mystique, Angel, and Azazel.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Though Riptide was not mentioned in X-Men: Days of Future Past, it can be assumed that he died while being experimented on by Bolivar Trask. This event is what led an angry Mystique to plot to kill Trask, though Xavier soon learns that doing so would only lead the creation of the Sentinels, which would later destroy both mutantkind and mankind in the future. Fortunately, Xavier managed to send Wolverine back in time to convince Mystique out of her vendetta, allowing the authorities to arrest Trask for selling military secret to foreign countries.
