Secret Empire. Kyle was one of many people experimented on by The Empire. A combination of DNA from Wyre and drugs were used on the subjects, turning them wild and bestial. Gibney was their most successful experiment, having become a veritable killing machine. While Kyle was still with the Secret Empire he met Valerie Cooper, a young U.S. government official. Cooper had been under the impression that the Secret Empire was a U.N. sanctioned agency. Assigned to help Kyle get in touch with his emotions to unlock his full potential, Cooper befriended him. Having opened Kyle's emotions up, unwittingly she enabled him to release his anger, triggering his mutation further. Cooper learned of the what was being done to Gibney, and eventually turned her back, and moved on to an other job. When Wyre became outraged at how his DNA was being used on others, he destroyed the Secret Empire's compound. Out of guilt, Wyre killed almost everyone in the Empire but missed Gibney. Department H was sent in to clean up the mess and found Gibney wounded, near death.
When Department H sought to replace Alpha Flight as the official Canadian heroes, Gibney was paroled into a new Gamma Flight. This team, lead by Nemesis was eventually disbanded, after Alpha Flight proved themselves a superior choice to defend Canada. Feeling abandoned once more, Wild Child went mad, nearly killing a young member of Alpha Flight, Laura Dean. Members of Alpha Flight, along with Wolverine, hunted Gibney down. Before Wild Child could be apprehended, Nemesis teleported him away.
When Alpha Flight was in Tierra del Maiz to stop Diablo, they were joined by a mysterious masked fighter who called himself Weapon Omega. He had been sent by the Canadian government to join Alpha Flight as their newest member. When the battle was over Omega revealed his identity as Kyle Gibney. He explained that Department H had discovered an experimental treatment capable of suppressing his homicidal urges, and made him appear much more normal. Alpha Flight agreed to allow him to remain with the team.
Wyre resurfaced, and tried to kill Kyle. He had spent the years since destroying the Secret Empire hunting down the former experiments and killing them, Kyle was the last one. Wyre refused at first to believe that Kyle had reformed and gained control over his wild side. After a prolonged battle with Kyle, later joined by Alpha Flight, Wyre understood the error of his ways. Kyle adopted a new persona, calling himself Wildheart, partially embracing his darker nature. As Wildheart, he remained with the team until it was once more disbanded by the Canadian Government. During this time Kyle had started a romance with his team mate Aurora
