Thomas Grant (b. 1973) was a very wealthy Muggle who owned most of the town of Albany. He and his wife Martha had a son named Tyler. The Grants were snobby and looked down on the poverty-stricken House of Allen who lived nearby. Although the Allens were also unpopular, being considered "white trash" by the most of the village, the Grant looked down on most of the families in the village as well, becoming very unpopular amongst the locals.
Thomas Grant was born in 1973. At some point he married Martha, who would give birth to their son, Tyler, in 1998. By this time, he owned much of Albany. Despite this, he was very unpopular amongst the locals, as he looked down on many of them. The elderly Grant couple suffered a great scandal when Tyler eloped and married Meghan Allen, the daughter of "tramp" Pete Allen. The pair left for Palmyra, but Tyler soon returned to his parents' home, claiming to have been "hoodwinked" and "taken in" by Meghan. This may have referred to her being a mutant and possessing him to obtain his affections, or to her pregnancy.
Behind the ScenesEdit
In The X-Adults: Endgame - Part 1, Master Intelligence refers to Grant’s child, Tyler (senior) as "the squire’s son." "Squire" is a British term referring to the leader of an English village, often a justice of the peace or a member of Parliament, which is odd considering Thomas is American.
