Search for 'Orphan-Maker (Peter)' on Amazon
Orphan-Maker is a mutant, but has yet to exhibit powers aside from those of his hi-tech battlesuit. Also, he presumably has had his age frozen, so that he remains intellectually and physically a child.
Orphan-Maker is highly resistant to most form of attack, and has certain reflective properties that allow him to deflect energy attacks such as Cyclops' optic blasts. Orphan-Maker is equipped with large guns that fire destructive energies. When he was outfitted with his new armor the suit had the capability of forming guns out of its hands.
The full story behind the Orphan-Maker has yet to be revealed. Apparently, Peter was held captive in Mister Sinister's "orphanage" for some purpose, but Mr. Sinister had instead decided that Peter was too uncontrollable and must be killed. Somehow, the mutant/cyborg Nanny discovered this and rescued Peter, making him into the first of her "Lost Boys (and Girls.)" Then, under Nanny's direction, Peter, as the Orphan-Maker, began to kill the parents of young mutants (and thus "orphaning" them) and abducting them for Nanny.
