- ―Bishop to Storm[src]
Lucas Bishop (usually just referred to as Bishop) is a mutant from the future, with the ability to absorb energy.
In 2023, Bishop was alerted to an oncoming attack by Sentinels on his mutant group's hideout, and quickly absorbed energy from Sunspot, transferring it from himself to his rifle. Bishop then travelled through objects with Kitty Pryde, reaching a bunker in which Kitty sent his mind back in time a few days, where he warned the past versions of the mutants of the impending attack, preventing it from happening.
Meeting up with the rest of the X-Men in a monastery in China, Bishop was present for the briefing on the plan to send Wolverine back in time to prevent Mystique from killing Bolivar Trask, the event which would ultimately result in the the horrible future they were currently living in. Bishop, alongside the other X-Men guarded Wolverine while he time traveled, until they were confronted by a fleet of Sentinels.
Using Storm's lightning to fuel his rifle, Bishop gunned down a few Sentinels in an effort to slow them, but the robots still managed to reach the monastery. Bishop was eventually pinned down by Sentinels who continuously blasted him with their energy beams, which he absorbed but as he was unable to release the mounting energy. He died within seconds as his body was teared apart by the energy build up.

Behind the scenes
To be added
- Bishop plays a small part in the X-Men: The Last Stand novelization by Chris Claremont.
- In the comics, Bishop plays no role in the Days of Future Past storyline, and is not even from the same alternate future where the Sentinels rule North America.
- Bishop's inclusion in the film could have been inspired from his appearance in the 1990's X-Men animated TV series, where he is the one who goes back in time to prevent the Days of Future Past timeline from occurring.
