The new Marauders are actually clones of the original Marauders, engineered by Nathaniel Essex as part of his continuing experiments. These clones possess the same powers as the originals (and ironically fewer side effects) however the cloning process is extremely long and the personality and mental conditioning is very unstable.
The Marauders have been built out of the existing personalities of the originals, but with significant alterations. Their more extreme elements have been accentuated, and most humanizing influences removed. The Marauders are uniformly cruel and brutal, caring for nothing but their orders from Essex and what sadism they can cause in following them.
The first versions had been hidden in the Morlock Tunnels, only to run afoul of the X-Men and Marrow unexpectedly when Marrow was given information as to the location of the people who had killed her 'family'. Many were killed. The survivors from that encounter had started to show significant mental breakdown as their conditioning comes apart and died thereafter.
The series II versions were also cloned by Nathaniel Essex and were even more improved. They appeared in Genosha, where they faced members of the X-Men and New Mutants in the Genenigeer's mutate labs. These second versions, including Riptide, disappeared in a fire blast that destroyed the mutate labs and are presumed dead.
Essex will go on to clone a much much more advanced series III team of Marauders, of which Kwannon is the head.
