History

Thomas and Lucinda Guthrie were a hard-working Kentucky family; Thomas worked the coal mines while Lucinda spent the majority of her time taking care of their ever-growing family. In 1996, Thomas died in a mining accident, leaving Lucinda as the sole parent for what was soon to be nine children after the birth of the twins, Lewis and Meg.

After his father's death, Sam left school as soon as he was able, taking a job in the coal mines, where his mutant power emerged during a cave-in similar to the one that killed his father. When Sam left Kentucky for Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, his younger sister Paige took on more responsibilities at home until her mutant power emerged and she joined Sam at the school, shortly followed by their younger brother Jay.

In the past few years, Lucinda has suffered from various health problems, including illnesses and a bad fall, which have at times necessitated Sam's return to help with his remaining six siblings, none of whom have exhibited signs of mutation like the oldest three.

The Guthries still reside on their family farm in Cumberland County, Kentucky.

In September 2012 Sam returned home, along with a few friends, for the twins' birthday and to visit the rest of his family. The visit took a bit of a turn, however, when Sam ran into a local Friends of Humanity group. The confrontation ended with Sam punching the leader and getting himself arrested. In retaliation, the FOH planned to set fire to the jail where Sam was being held as well as the Guthrie homestead. Sam was rescued by an undercover SHIELD agent, and the attack on the Guthrie home was held off for a time by Sam, Lorna Dane, Kurt Sefton, Tabitha Smith, Jubilee, and Lucinda (wielding a shotgun). Thanks to their efforts, only a small portion of the house was damaged.
