Christopher "Chris" Bradley, also known as Bolt, was a mutant and a former member of William Stryker's special mutant team Team X. Together with Logan, Victor and the others, he searches for adamantium.


X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Chris Bradley was a member of Team X. He piloted the team's plane with his ability to manipulate electricity. In their search for adamantium the team was trapped in an elevator when its power was cut off. Bradley used his ability to power and control the lift.

When Team X disbanded six years after the events in Africa, Bradley moved to a carnival in Springfield, Ohio, where he cheated people out of money by challenging them to turn off a light bulb that he was powering. In his trailer there are hundreds of electrical items that Bradley controls. Former Team X member Victor Creed arrives at his door and kills Bradley. Due to his death all the lights at the carnival switch off.

Bradley's electrical capabilities are later used for the mutant killer Weapon XI/Deadpool.


Years later into the future Chris Bradley DNA was used in the creation of the X-23 children. His DNA would result in the birth of the mutant child known as Bobby.

Powers and Abilities


  • Electrokinesis: Bolt's particular power was the ability to manipulate and use ambient static electricity. Bolt was shown controlling a helicopter, an elevator, and light bulbs among other things. His entire trailer was filled with things run by the power of electricity, such as hundreds of lights and a train set. In a fight, he can use it as electric bolts or as a protective shield, although he did not portray this ability in the film.


  • Skilled Marksman: Chris was a skilled marksman, having some weapons training due to his time in Team X.



Behind the scenes

  • Bradley speaks with Monaghan's own English accent, which differs from the comics origin of the character as an American from Dutchess County, New York.


  • When Logan prevented the Sentinel-dominated future from happening in X-Men: Days of Future Past, Chris' death never happened, as Team X was never formed. Thus, he along with other members of Team X, were never hunted and killed by Victor Creed; but it is unknown whether he is currently alive or not.
