Place of Birth
He could generate razor-sharp spikes from his body, which he could fire outward with deadly accuracy.
After watching video footage of the Spike in action, the senior members of X-Statix, except the Anarchist (the other African-American member), voted to have him join the team. At the press conference to announce his membership, Spike calls the Anarchist racial names and the two began butting heads (which continues for a long time). Eager to gain more media attention, Vivisector and Phat jump into a fight with Spike in “defense” of their teammate. Later, when U-Go Girl hosts the Larry King Show, she has the Spike show up as her first guest. This swiftly erupts (once again) into a battle between the Anarchist, Vivisector, Phat, and the Spike.

After some time in Central America, Spike returns to Santa Monica with the rest of the team, where they were bombarded with questions by the media. After U-Go Girl, the Orphan, and the Anarchist returned from their failed attempt to contact Dead Girl, the team's manager Spike Freeman instructs X-Force on its upcoming mission to help the C.I.A. get a better image. The team was to head into space to stop the "Bush Rangers" who had seemingly taken control of the Mars 2010 Space Station. Once on the space station, they were to forfeit and get saved by the C.I.A., thereby making the C.I.A. look good. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn more about the different characters and/or team.)
Once X-Force arrived on the Mars 2010 Space Station that the Bush Rangers had taken control of, they found that the "crew members" were actually the real Bush Rangers (death row convicts who were altered to gain mutant powers), who then ambushed the X-Force. Later during their battles, the Bush Rangers disguised themselves to look like the Spike. Eventually, to avoid her and others being killed, U-Go Girl teleported part of her team into a shuttle circling the space station. Thinking their teammates were dead, the remaining X-Force members (Vivisector, Phat, the Spike, and Dead Girl) battled on. Soon, the shuttle that U-Go Girl, the Anarchist, and the Orphan had teleported to went out of control and slammed into the space station. Then, just as the X-Force were reuniting, the real Spike prompted a fake Spike to reveal that he a Bush Ranger. However, the fake Spike then jumped at the real Spike, impaling him on one of his spikes--killing him on the spot.No information is there, but here is the link to Spike's bio on Marvel.com, http://marvel.com/universe/Spike_%28X-Force%29.
In X-Men: The Last Stand, a "Spike" character appeared in a battle with Wolverine in a forest. This "Spike" character had the ability to extrude bony spikes from his flesh and hurl them with great speed and force.
