Lived here all my life. That's how I know all the bad stuff that goes on here. That's why I know how evil the mutants all are. It's a good thing there are some of us who see the truth.— Manson

Manson is one of the inhabitants of Broken Hills who in 2241 is held in the town's jail.


Manson claims to have been named by his parents after Charles Manson, a pre-war cult leader and criminal, and is every bit as insane as his namesake. He is one of the members of the anti-mutant conspiracy and thus is held in the local jail together with his friend Franc.
