Forge is a fictional character, a mutant superhero in the Marvel Comics universe. He was created by Chris Claremont and John Romita Jr. in Uncanny X-Men #184.

Forge is a mutant with an innate superhuman talent for invention - an intuitive genius, it is as natural as breathing for him. He is a Native American of the Cheyenne nation. Although he was trained as a shaman, he has primarily relied upon technology rather than mysticism to accomplish his tasks and even has cybernetic replacements for lost limbs as a war veteran. During his stint in the Vietnam War, his command was killed by enemy troops; in anger, he summoned a band of demons to destroy the opposition. This action allowed the demon called the Adversary to come to Earth and Forge has since been hesitant to employ his mystical abilities.

Years later, he became an employee of the US government, and, in this context, was tapped to construct a device capable of neutralizing the mutant powers of the X-Man called Rogue. However, the device instead removed the powers of her teammate, Storm. Although Storm initially held Forge in contempt, the two grew closer, and would later become romantically involved. In the X-Men's final battle with the Adversary, Forge was required to sacrifice nine willing lives to banish the Adversary forever; the X-Men volunteered, and died in the casting of Forge's spell. However, the goddess Roma intervened and restored the X-Men to life.

Forge became involved with the resurrected X-Men, including Storm, and fought alongside Mystique's Freedom Force and an interim team of "X-Men" against the Reavers at Muir Island. During this battle, Destiny died, but not before foreseeing that Forge and Mystique would one day love one another, a fact that both parties found implausible. Forge later became a member of the X-Mansion's "support team", but left when Storm rejected his proposal of marriage.

Forge went on to become the government's liaison with the mutant superhero team X-Factor. In this context, he saw the mutant criminals Mystique and Sabretooth forced unwillingly onto the team. Although Forge and Mystique were attracted to one another, this did not prevent the pair from escaping. X-Factor was later disbanded, and Forge was no longer active in any mutant groups.

Recently, Professor Xavier asked him for help in locating Mystique whom he needed for a clandestine mission, and for a short time Forge played Q to Xavier's M and Mystique's Bond.
