Page 2 of X-Factor #50 (Dec. 2009) briefly describes the "origin" of Anthony Falcone, the Presidential advisor who (80 years in the future) will try to destroy all mutants from the face of the Earth. The narrative captions (apparently narrated by an older Layla Miller to her younger self) describe Falcone's history. This brief history mentions the place of his parents and grandmother in his story and in the formation of his deep hatred of mutants. The narrative captions on page 1 read:

"Once upon a time -- forty years from now -- there was a boy who lived in an orphanage, just as you do now. His parents were killed, and his home destroyed (he was off visiting his grandma that night) under 'mysterious circumstances.' That's what authorities always called it when they thought mutants were involved. The boy's name was Anthony Falcone, and he hated mutants. Hated them more than anybody ever had, maybe."

Toward the end of this story, on page 28, we see that it was the machinations of Anthony Falcone himself that caused the death of his parents. A massive Sentinel robot that he was personally piloting and using to target mutants was thrown into a time-travel portal created by Trevor Fitzroy. Nobody knew where or when the portal would lead. As it turned out, Falcone's giant Sentinel crashed on the home of the young Falcone, killing his parents. This event thus created a time travel paradox in which the course of history (Falcone's campaign to eradicate mutants) was triggered by an event (the death of Falcone's parents) that this very course caused.
