An army of mutants calling themselves the Knights of Meyer followed the Dark mutant the Dark Flame in the early twenty-second century. They sought to create a worldwide mutant empire, which would overturn the Fobble rulers and politicians and force the Fobble population into slavery under their motto: "For the Greater Good."

Between about 2070 when Centauri fled the MBH and 2180, the year of his downfall, Dark mutant Thomas Meyer, better known as the Dark Flame, formed an army consisting of mutants and possibly other creatures, with the purpose of building a worldwide mutant empire that ruled Muggle society as well as mutant society. Eventually he and the Knights of Meyer launched several devastating attacks across North America, committing mass-slaughter, and garnering international attention from authorities. Several of the attacks carried a high risk of war. In response to the Dark Flame's actions an international mutant hunt ensued, and was reported on in periodicals. At some point the Dark Flame was almost captured, but was able to evade his pursuers, and disappear.
Shadow Wars Edit
The Dark Flame succeeded in erecting a prison to serve as a form of containment for his enemies, breached only by Sebiscuits Cardarphen. By 2077, parts of the community, including Anakin Organa, considered them fanatics. Unbeknownst to Hickory, the Dark Flame infiltrated the Whitehouse by assuming the identity of Olivia Alexandra Mary. The Dark Flame believed the mysterious attacks occurring in New York City to be the work of a powerful Obscurial, which he felt would be a great asset for his evil goals. Using his disguise as Mary, the Dark Flame came into regular contact with Colby Credence, whom he believed to be connected to the Obskiat. The Dark Flame manipulated him into helping him find the Obskiat with the promise of protection and training.
During this time, the Dark Flame (as Mary) finally encountered Anakin and Jay Organa, whose escaped beasts were believed to be the cause of the Obskiat's attacks. He discovered the Obskiat with Jay, and realized they commanded the Team of Terror. The Knights of Meyer invaded the hotel, but this proved no fruit. However, after Maggie revealed that she was the Obskiat, she attacked the city of London and was killed by the Organas. The Dark Flame was apprehended by Jay, who then revealed his real identity. As the Dark Flame was dragged off, he correctly deduced that the Team of Terror had to be dealt with quickly, or else they could very well destroy the Knights of Meyer.
