The Phalanx are techno-organic beings, who’s nervous systems are composed of organic circuitry. Their body’s are structured like machinery and the entire race has a single collective consciousness. They infect people with the transmode virus which converts them into the Phalanx collective. This evil race was born when scientist experimented on the remains of the New MutantWarlock, who is a member of the Technarchy, a society of techno-organic beings. Technarchs feed by using the transmode virus to convert organic life forms into Phalanx and then draining their life away.
