He shares a telepathic goodbye with his beloved, then notes Necrom still lives.

Necrom, with the aid of a slave creature, flees into a structure known as the Tower that Crosses Time. Nobody had entered in twenty thousand years. Uncaring, Kylun follows.

. Kylun's old friend Widget returned, in a new form. Excalibur's headquarters was becoming infected with windows into alternate realities, the same way Kylun himself came to Earth. At the same time, Necrom attacked. Kylun helped in the fight, though Necrom's destruction was brought about by Phoenix.

Kylun helps investigate the disappearance of twenty-seven older citizens from a small village. He was caught up in an Alice of Wonderland fantasy-land, created by Joyboy of Technet and the Red Queen of the Crazy Gang

, a British agency run by Orpington-Smythe, AKA Peter. Vixen had told Kylun his parents had been killed but this was not true. Kylun finds himself yanked from his parent's front steps and dragged into the nearby woods. The three superpowered R.C.X. agents Oak, Lodestone and Ocelot, all 'Warpies', fought him for several minutes. Kylun swung his sword through Ocelot's arm but since the man was merely misguided, not evil, no harm was done. Both were vastly confused and Oak then takes advantage by knocking out Kylun from behind.

Peter's desires were to use the 'Warpies', superpowered British citizens of all ages, to restore the glory of the British empire. Kylun was awakened from suspended animation, along with many allies, old and new, just in time to join in on the brewing mutiny other members of Excalibur had roused in the ranks of the Warpies.

Excalibur's side faced certain defeat, even with the their newfound allies because several of the younger Warpies were concentrating on the offensive powers of the team. Kylun gambled that his sound mimicry was not considered a threat and successfully let out a roar sufficient enough to drive the children away. This allowed Excalibur to gain the upper hand, if just for the moment. The fleeing children informed other Warpies of what was going on, and several of them decided to help the heroes. Kylun and his friends soon managed to shut Orpington-Smythe down.

Kylun later attends the wedding of Captain Britain and Meggan.

 who possesses some animalistic physical characteristics, such as fur, sharpened teeth, and a lion like nose and eyes. He also has the ability to use his vocal cords to replicate any sound he has heard.

Kylun is also an expert swordsman, wielding two twin mystical swords, the Blades of Zz'ria. These blades have an enchantment that prevents them from harming anyone good (or pure of heart). Should the blades be directed against such a person they become intangible and simply pass through them without causing harm. The blades are also highly resistant to magic, shown to have the power to deflect magical attacks, destroy magical creations and wound otherwise impervious magical beings (such as Necrom
