Paradigm is a supervillain from Marvel comics.
Years ago, the Chinese government began to experiment with the Techno-Organic Virus to try and gain an advantage making super-soldiers. A boy with the mutant power to interact with machines was taken and infected with the Transmode Virus to see the reaction. He became a perfected Phalanx-Human mix, allowing him to cover people with the techno-virus and to control their minds. The being called himself Paradigm, and escaped from his prison in China.
Paradigm would proceed to ally himself with numerous supervillains, many of which fought against the assorted X-teams (such as X-Force, X-Men etc).
