Dr. Bolivar Trask was concerned with the emergence of the species ‘MUTANT’, that their genetic abilities, combined with their ever-increasing numbers would lead to Homo Sapiens being subjugated by them. That was the motivation that spurred him to create his “Master Mold”, a servitor/controller that would command the many ‘Sentinels’ that Trask would create later. Unfortunately the A.I. it had been given, began to grow exponentially and Master Mold became sentient, and made sure his progeny acquired this ability also. Ironically, unbeknownst to Trask he had fathered two children who would grow up to become mutants: Tanya (and Lawrence) who had the ability of time travel and due to the instability of her power became lost in the timestream.
