Search for 'Bishop (Marvel)(Ultimate)' on Amazon
In Ultimate X-Men #43 when Emma Frost introduces some of the candidates for the new, government-supported mutant team to the President, a muscular African American with braided hair and a golden chain around his neck is shown on a screen.
The President says, "No to Bishop not with his criminal record."
A time-traveling Bishop appears in Ultimate X-Men #76. Moments after the battle with Cable concludes, he appears asking if he's too late to stop Cable.
Wolverine knocks him unconscious and the X-Men interrogate him. He is wearing the same uniform as the members of Cable's squad. He appears to be much older than the mainstream Bishop, because of his gray hair. He then leads the team into battle with Cable's squad. However he fails to stop Cable from kidnapping Xavier (everyone believes Xavier is dead) and is now trapped in the present day, due to the fact that Cable destroyed the device that allowed him to time travel.
In Ultimate X-Men #80, Bishop has a conversation with his younger self, who is incarcerated, in which he tells him not to use his powers to escape. By Ultimate X-Men #84, Bishop has formed a new team of X-Men (conformed by Wolverine, Storm, Pyro, Dazzler, Angel and Psylocke). He is using the new team to stop a new wave of Sentinel attacks on mutants, caused by an unknown enemy, revealed in that issue to be the Fenris twins and Bolivar Trask. Wolverine appears to distrust Bishop, promising to gut him if he tries anything suspicious. He was unconscious during the fight with the Fenris twins and the Sentinels, but when Psylocke's life was at risk, he woke up to defend her and revealed that she was his future wife.
He killed both the Fenris Twin's with his abilities and went on to lead the New X Men against the sentinels. But, at the end of the battle, it was surprisingly revealed that he was in fact working with Cable, and that the entire "Cable" affair had been a ruse to make the X Men a stronger team. This may relate to the upcoming "Ultimate Apocalypse" arc, as Cable has an extensive history with Apocalypse in the mainstream MArvel U.
His powers have been revealed as density control. For example, he recently destroyed a Sentinel robot by causing its shell to increase in density and crush its inner parts. Bishop then reduced his own density and floated to the ground. He also has access to teleportation technology.
While the first name of the Earth-616 Bishop is Lucas, it is unrevealed in the Ultimate Universe.
The Ultimate version of this character is not an alternate identity of the regular Marvel character as the Ultimate universe is a distinct reality.
