Psi-Lord is the son of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman. He grew up in the Fantastic 4's universe. He constantly heard the name Doom, and was surrounded by their world. He loved it. Seemingly without powers, though, he didn't feel like he fit in. But when he manifested telepathic and telekinetic powers, and he heard the X-Men's distress call, he decided to help save them, and he joined the team, becoming the resident telepath and finally discovering where he belonged.
Franklin was born to Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman, of the Fantastic 4. The radiation that gave his parents their powers also gave serious complications to his birth. Eventually, Franklin was safely born, but the complications with the birth also gave him other complications: the child would never have any superhuman abilities.
He was raised well when his parents were around. And when they weren't around, or were out saving the world, he was watched over by his godmother Alicia Masters. He loved being in this world, though, as no day was ever boring. Knowing he would never have powers, though, made him feel left out. He always wanted to be a superhero, so he decided he could be the next Iron Man if all else failed. But he still secretly hoped for his own mutant powers. And soon he got them, in the form of totally random powers. These were the powers of telepathy and telekinesis, and they were so powerful, he accidentally put all New Yorkers into a telepathically induced sleep. When everyone woke up, Reed told them it was an alien weapon that had been disabled. He then had power inhibitors placed on him so a similar problem would never happen again.
When he heard the news of the Skrull invasion through a telepathic cry, he knew he had to help. Unfortunately, the Fantastic 5 were out on a mission. So Franklin somehow "chipped" his psychic blocks, allowing part of his powers through, and set off to help. He was gladly accepted into the squad, as he was famous among the small group. In space, he proved a potent weapon against the Skrulls. Upon returning to Earth, he decided to join the team, as he knew there could never be a "Fantastic 6." He soon became a core X-Man, and he would have it no other way.
