Preview material for the Eve of Destruction arc identified Paulie by the codename Omerta, but it was never actually used on panel. The name was eventually applied in Cable (4th series) #2. Omerta I was an Alpha Flight character.
For years, Paulie was believed dead at the hands of the Weapon X Program in the Neverland concentration camp. A somewhat generic-looking figure next to Maggott in Weapon X (2nd series) #5 was identified by the writer as Paulie. However, as of Cable (4th series) #2, Paulie is identified as both alive and depowered. This implied he was not brought back by Krakoan resurrection protocols, and was likely alive on M-Day to be depowered. If true, his identification in Neverland may no longer be considered canon.
