Francis is an enforcer at the "Workshop".  The Workshop is a lab run by Doctor Killebrew.  The Workshop is full of washout and rejected super people from the Weapon X program.  As Weapon X had no use for them they were sent to the Workshop to be experimented on, dissected, and eventually killed.  It was in a effect a hidden dark site hospice the eliminated super soldier experiment failures, while attempting to research better ways at creating them.

Francis is provided special upgrades that make him very formidable fighter.  These upgrades included trimmed nerves that eliminated pain, super strength, super speed and an intuitive ability to predict opponents moves.  The intuitive ability appeared to go beyond a hyper reflex and allowed him to react to opponents moves before they made them.

Wade Wilson ends up in the Workshop after his added healing factor appears to not work.  He taunts and teases Francis making an enemy of the enforcer.  Francis sets in motion a plan where Deadpool is forced to mercy kill an inmate, a break in the Workshop's rules, and punishable by death.  After Wade Wilson breaks the rule, Francis attacks Wilson and rips out his heart, seemingly killing him.  Rather than dieing however a heart regenerates in Wades chest, his healing factor finally triggered.  Wade takes on the name of Deadpool as the survivor of inmates death pool in the Workshop.  Deadpool hunted down Francis and kills him.........or so he thinks.


Francis survived Deadpool's attack and further upgraded himself to become the cyborgnetic monstrosity known as Ajax.  As Ajax all of his powers were increased by a metal suit and he began hunting down and killing everyone that had anything to do with the workshop.  This ended in a confrontation with Deadpool and Killebrew who joined forces to bring him down.  Killebrew managed to burn away a section of Ajax that exposed nerve wiring.  Deadpool later lured Ajax into water where he short circuited and died.

Ajax will be featured in the film Deadpool (2016) and played by Ed Skrein

Ed Skrein talked to Digital Spy his role as Ajax as well as his upcoming film Transporter Refueled about the look of his character for the film.  He explains how the version on the screen will be based off the first version of the character but not large suited version that comes back. 

"No, we don't go too deep into Ajax's backstory. We mention it, it's very faithful to the first section of Ajax in the comics, the backstory that we see, the flashbacks in the comics, and so we're very faithful to that. There's a second half of Ajax in the comics, where he comes back five years later with this big crazy suit and stuff, and we didn't touch on that, so this is the early Ajax. We've stayed very faithful to that."
So do not expect a metal suit on Ajax.  Just expect a really bad ass fighter, that is strong, cruel and hyper fast.  Skrien also went on to explain how he felt the Deadpool movie was going alter the formula of the Super Hero film.
"It's a lot edgier than the stuff that you'll normally see. That was a priority for us from the beginning. We'd been so blessed and we're so lucky to have had all these superhero movies so far, but we possibly have become saturated by them so they're possible coming formulaic. Also, they're maybe not quite as faithful to the actual feeling that we had when we were 13 years old and reading comic books, like 'I can't believe he just chopped someone's head off and said something like that, and then stabbed someone in the eye, and then ran off and did all this crazy stuff!'
