While Reed Richards gives out unstable molecule costumes pretty freely today, in the early days of super-heroing not everybody knew each other. 60's Ant-Man and the Wasp didn't have access to unstable molecules for their shrinking needs back then.

The molecular reduction field only extended a minimal distance, however. Good enough for skintight outfits, but the Wasp has shrunk her way out of towels and evening gowns before, which weren't close enough to be caught in the field.

What was it about the Phalanx that prevented Forge from shutting off his power? And how did that result in him being in a near-hypnotic enthrall by them?

He was partially assimilated into the hive mind by Douglock. This gave Shinar the edge he needed to manipulate Forge.

I thought mutants couldn't be assimilated by the Phalanx at all.

And that is what the Phalanx was trying to work around during that crossover. Forge's power, plus a willingness to assimilate at first when it was through Douglock, was helping them overcome that genetic gap.

Thanks. Can you provide a PD on Rick Jones? I know little of his connection to Destiny Force, Mar-Vell, and his A-Bomb form.

Rick Jones is typically a normal human. All of humanity, however, have a potential in their genes to achieve vast power of time, space, matter, and energy. All forms of benevolent mutation among super-beings on Earth are theoretically micro-expressions of this potential. Rick's mind has a greater connection to the ultimate potential of this "Destiny Force" than nearly any other human. He can rarely access this power consciously or repeatedly, but it has manifested temporarily in various ways. He has demonstrated telepathic and clairvoyant awareness across galaxies, summoned people from various points in time and space, frozen time around two space armadas, in addition to feats like levitation, healing, energetic discharges, size-changing, and more.

Rick Jones's first super-hero career was as the new Bucky. Lacking super-powers, he trained extensively for weeks with Captain America to improve his athleticism and martial prowess.

After his partnership with Cap ended, Rick found himself linked to Captain Mar-Vell of the Kree. Mar-Vell's atoms had inverted into anti-matter, trapping him in the Negative Zone. Rick was guided to a set of Kree Nega Bands that created a psionic and molecular link between him and Mar-Vell. By striking the bands together on Earth, Rick could exchange places with Mar-Vell in the Negative Zone. The two could also communicate psychically during their connection. They separated their connection when Mar-Vell used the Negative Zone portal in the Baxter Building to retrieve Rick at the start of the Kree-Skrull War. It was here that the Supreme Intelligence first triggered Rick's Destiny Force, and he nearly died. Mar-Vell sacrificed himself to save Rick, allowing his atoms to bond with Rick's in order to restore his broken body.

Mar-Vell later re-emerged from within Rick thanks to a series of solar treatments that restored his body. Marv was now positive matter again, and Rick was forced to release him from the Negative Zone at least once every 12 hours. Over time their bond grew, allowing each partner to animate the other's body across dimensions if they were unconscious. Marv and Rick could separate at will and rejoin on contact, with Rick's presence doubling Mar-Vell's powers when they were linked. However, their enhanced link was disrupted by a black hole, leaving them completely unable to contact each other anymore, and forcing them to change every 9 hours. Mar-Vell finally separated from Rick by tricking the Super-Adaptoid into duplicating his Nega Bands, then slapping them together to banish the Adaptoid to the Negative Zone and reclaim Rick.

When Bruce Banner and the Hulk were separated, a gamma nutrient bath was designed to merge them back together. Rick fell into that bath with them, absorbing a sizeable amount of their gamma radiation. As a result, he developed a secondary gamma form that copied many of the traditional Hulk changes. Rick transformed into the Hulk at nightfall, manifesting a "Rick smash!" personality based on the classic Green Hulk. He possessed roughly Class 75 or higher strength, superhuman endurance, durability, and leaping ability. His gamma power was later drained by Sam Sterns to restore his powers as the Leader, and a psychic link between Rick and the Leader remained for several years after that.

Rick later underwent molecular bonding with Mar-Vell's son, Genis, making him the partner of the next generation of Captain Marvel. Their abilities to communicate and exchange places using the Nega Bands were roughly the same as the original partnership. Because of cosmic happenstance, however, Rick and Genis exchanged places between Earth and the Microverse instead of the Negative Zone.

After separating from Genis, Rick was subjected to the prototype gamma/cosmic process used by the Leader and MODOK of the Intelligencia to create Red Hulk and Red She-Hulk. Rick became a new version of the Abomination, although his "Rick smash!" personality meant he shortened the name to "A-Bomb" for convenience. Rick initially transformed between his normal self and the dumb "A-Bomb" before stabilizing with his normal personality in the A-Bomb body, unable to change back and forth. Eventually, his transformation ability returned as well. As A-Bomb, Rick possessed Class 100 strength, superhuman endurance, leaping ability, and hardened scaly skin with virtual invulnerability to physical harm. He also had a power not possessed by the original Abomination, the chameleon-like ability to alter his skin's appearance and blend in with his surroundings.

When Doc Green exposed Rick to a process that removed his gamma power, it temporarily augmented his brain power. He turned his enhanced learning capabilities towards computer and communications technology. The effect eventually faded, but his new knowledge remained, making Rick a self-taught genius in the field of computer hacking and cryptology under the new name of the Whisperer.

Could you do a PD on Cooper Roth aka Paragon and Misty Knight (more so her bionic arm - both updates).

Cooper Roth was an Extremis enhancile created by the Mandarin and Maya Hansen's program. He possessed varied gravity-manipulating abilities but, as a double agent inside the Initiative, lied about the extent of his powers. Paragon presented as a classic supertype with superhuman strength, durability, and flight. He actually achieved these powers through gravity manipulation, using anti-gravity to levitate himself and binding G-Forces into his molecular structure to functionally increase his strength and the density of his skin. He hid other gravity-based abilities such as levitating other people and objects, or inducing contracting pressure to cause someone to die by collapsing inwards on themselves. The full range of his gravity powers was not shown before his death.

Misty Knight was a cop who lost her arm while trying to dispose of a bomb. Her bionic arm was originally designed by Stark International, but improvements and updates have been provided by Forge, Rand Enterprises and other contractors.

The original bionic arm was intended as a prosthetic, not a weapon. As a result, its primary feature was its ability to appear like a normal flesh-and-blood arm without alerting others. Beneath a synthetic layer of flesh, the arm was made out of metal and therefore stronger than a normal arm. However, practical matters prevented it from giving Misty true "super-strength". Only Misty's arm was bionic -- while it could lift and support immense weight, her spine and legs could not. Trying to lift more weight than she could normally would crush her still human physiology under the pressure. Misty Knight's bionic arm did have a vice-like grip, though, able to crush steel, and she could deliver powerful, piledriver-like blows of force.

Years later, Misty began using a more ostentatious bionic arm, no longer trying to hide its artificial nature but incorporating more features into it. This new arm was comprised of Antarctic Vibranium encased in a layer of diamond alloy. This not only made the arm virtually impervious, it also allowed Misty to selectively deploy the metal-melting properties of the Anti-Metal by retracting the diamond casing. This enabled her to liquefy metal in close quarters when she wished. Misty could also generate magnetic fields. She was no Magneto -- she could not manipulate magnetism with skill, only generate it. As a result, she worked best deploying her magnetism for brute force effects like repelling anything metal nearby, or attracting metal objects in close. Anything more selective or delicate would require some concentration...and luck. The arm was controlled using a neural-cybernetic interface between Misty's brain and the arm. Retractable cyberjacks enabled Misty to extend this interface to other electronic systems, using her arm to override digital locks, hack into computer systems, etc. Other one-time features seen include a force beam, freeze beam, and a form of short-range anti-gravity thrust.

Thanks for the PDs.

Question what is meant by a phase-shifter? You call Locus it in her PD and I wonder what you meant by it. Also, could you explain why Locus' power where effected by Sunspot, Moonstars and Skids powers when they came into contact sending them off into different places.

Phase-shifter is a specific form of teleporting applied to Locus, and I think John Wraith. It's specifically not extra-dimensional displacement or beaming at the speed of light between locations. What it actually IS isn't 100% clear...probably some form of quantum positioning based on peaks of the given being's wave-function.

Thanks for that. Do you know why when Sunspot, Moonstars and Skids powers came into contact with Locus' portals that they reacted by sending them off into different places?

I'm not entirely sure if this question belongs in a power description but it's the closest category I could think of ... Has it ever been addressed why Madelyne Pryor didn't blip as a mutant on Cerebro-type detectors and that no one seemed to have a clue she had powers until she starting wigging out as Goblyn Queen? It seems as Jean Grey's clone she should have been picked up at some point.

It was the nature of the retcon, unfortunately. The explanation in Inferno seemed to be that Sinister was unsuccessful in bringing Maddie to life until a fraction of the Phoenix Force bonded with her after "Jean" died on the moon. So you could say her powers came solely from Phoenix possession and not strictly from an X-gene at all. But then you have the question of how Sinister could've (or would've) produced a clone of Jean Grey without the X-Gene in the first place, and the thread just unravels from there.

Sinister said that Madelyne simply didn't manifest powers when she reached puberty. As in real live genes can be switched on and off, I don't see a reason why it couldn't be like that with the X-gene.

@DrHouse: Shiva was an artificial intelligence designed to eliminate the test subjects of the Weapon X Program. It inhabited robot bodies while carrying out its mission. These bodies tended to possess superhuman strength, speed and reflexes, and overall durability. They may have been constructed fully or partially out of Adamantium, particularly the various spikes and blades covering the Shiva. Shiva could project plasma beams from its hands and was linked to the behavioral programming triggers used in the Weapon X Program. Therefore, its encephalo-beam could influence the minds of Weapon X test subjects, activating dormant cover personalities or memories, or psychologically torturing the subject by unleashing the recollection of their own worst memories. Shiva had a learning protocol and battle computer, designed to analyze its attackers and build upon its experiences so it could never be beaten the same way twice. The artificial intelligence carried over from one destroyed body to the next, maintaining a continuity of learned responses across different robot bodies.

The Ringmaster was an accomplished hypnotist. He used the swirling ring on his hat to entrance anyone who looked at it, and his costume had reflective paint on the various stars on his jacket, which distracted his victims and weakened their resolve. Once caught in the swirling effect of his hat, victims fell into a deep trance where they were unaware of their surroundings, and would have no recollection of events that occurred until they awakened from the trance. Ringmaster could govern the behavior of others under his power, such as ordering Spider-Man to attack Daredevil. He could also manipulate the memories of other people, causing them to forget the Circus of Crime were ever present or occasionally creating entirely false personalities for victims, compelling them to join the Circus under these new identities.

At one point, the Ringmaster received ocular implants that gave him natural hypnotic eyes, allowing him to entrance others with his gaze and voice alone without relying upon his hat or other mechanical aids.

@Cosmos666: Latent mutants can still be detected by Cerebro machines, though.

With the upcoming Avengers movie I was wondering is the black order of Thanos really that powerful? Are they really that powerful as individuals or were they just that terrifying way back because of Thanos resources and their ruthlessness? What are their powers (if any)?

The Black Order were considerably powerful in their own right. The brawlers (Corvus, Proxima, Black Dwarf) were able to fight multiple Alpha class heroes and contenders simultaneously, at one time or another standing toe-to-toe with Hulk, Thing, Thor, Captain Marvel, Ronan, Super-Skrull, and others in 2 or 3-against-1 scenarios weighted against the Order member. Supergiant's telepathy equaled or surpassed Rachel Summers'. Ebony Maw and Black Swan were deliberately more vague about their capabilities, but still incredibly dangerous opponents on their own.

Corvus Glaive was rendered immortal by the power of his staff. So long as that weapon was in his control or possession, he could not die. Many times he simply shrugged off tremendous amounts of force or damage, but it also gave him a healing factor that allowed him to reconstitute around his staff from stray molecules if disintegrated or dispersed. The blade of his staff can slice between atoms, enabling it to cut through virtually anything. Corvus is an incredibly skilled strategist and tactician for single combat or the direction of armies. He personally possesses considerable superhuman levels of strength, endurance, and resistance to physical injury for direct confrontation, as well as superhuman agility and reflexes for more elaborate displays of skill with his weapon.

Proxima Midnight is an alien of unknown origin with superhuman strength, stamina, and durability of her own. She and her husband Corvus are nearly equals in might and skill, although she seems to be slightly stronger while he surpasses her in cunning. Like Corvus, Proxima favors a single weapon...her spear staff. Useful as a throwing weapon, the spear breaks up into three energy lances that are guided unerring towards their targets. Proxima Midnight can and often will kill instantly with a single strike of the lance's energy. Dodging one of her lance bolts is considered impressive; dodging all three is virtually impossible. The lance bolts can bring down any opponent, even injuring beings of pure energy like Spectrum.

Black Dwarf has Hulk-like proportions and hyper-dense skin and molecular structure. Probably the strongest of all the Black Order, but a pure brawler with little skill other than battering targets with his fists. Still, that usually works. His hyper-density also renders him virtually impervious to harm.

Supergiant was an omnipath, although that term was seemingly used to mean "extremely powerful telepath" as opposed to Grandmaster's omnipathy of being constantly in contact with every mind on the planet. She had the standard tricks of mind reading, psychic attack, possessing and controlling others, etc. After her death in Infinity, she apparently survives as an astral form, a concentrated mass of pure thought with no physical substance to connect with.

The Ebony Maw was a deliberately obscure and insidious character. Maw was superhumanly intelligent and observant, able to size up potential victims or opponents to accurately assess how best to manipulate them. He was known as a whisperer, possessing a possibly supernatural ability to influence and persuade others while speaking. The Maw did not work by commanding his victims, but by talking them into doing things because his suggestions seemed like a reasonable thing to do. Still, he could talk people into killing themselves or each other with only a few words. By speaking continually to Doctor Strange he was able to place Stephen in a trance where he would do virtually anything Maw "suggested", including carry out particular actions after the Maw left him and forget ever meeting the Maw at the same time. Contact with the Builders and an Ex Nihili revealed the whisperer left a pseudo-tangible malignancy inside Strange's mind. Once it was removed by the Nihili's unique abilities, Doctor Strange's thoughts and memories were his own again.

Black Swan was actually A black swan, part of a religious cult of followers of Rabum Alal during the great game of worlds. It's uncertain whether any of her abilities were natural or all granting to her when she joined the order of the Black Swans. The extent of her powers is also unknown, as she deliberately presented herself as more demure and non-threatening when working with the Illuminati at first. However, she did possess shockingly high superhuman strength when she demonstrated it. Black Swan could project eyebeams strong enough to incinerate a human being, fly under her own power, and project force fields for protection or the levitation and transport of others. She could achieve incredible speeds while transporting herself and her fields by pushing against the Earth's gravitational field. Black Swan was telepathic, able to mentally initiate a psychic conversation with others, if they were willing. She could also detect the onset of Incursions thanks to a device implanted in her eyes.

Stingray wears a deep sea diving suit of his own design. The suit contains an oxygen membrane and internal air supply allowing him to breathe underwater virtually indefinitely by extracting breathable oxygen from the surrounding water. An exoskeleton in the suit's lining increases his strength and exaggerates his movements so he can move more freely underwater. Stingray can lift about 20 tons in open air. The suit is highly resilient, able to absorb impact and adjust to intense levels of water pressure at the ocean floor. Point blank small caliber gunfire will not penetrate the suit, although the impact alone may knock him down. This resilience also allows him to surface faster than normal without suffering from "the bends". The flaps or glider-wings under his arms enable him to fly in open air and provide jet-assisted propulsion underwater as well. He is equipped with radio throat mikes and a sonar system to map the contours of his environment using sonar imaging, allowing him to navigate the virtually light-less areas miles under the sea. He can project electrostatic bolts from his gauntlets in any environment as an offensive tactic.

Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross had his consciousness absorbed by the electro-cerebral entity known as Zzzax. The creature traditionally fed off of the neuro-electricity of the human mind, but Ross's willpower was so strong he essentially possessed and directed Zzzax against the Hulk. Even after having his mind restored to its proper body, Ross maintained the ability to project some amount of electrostatic energy.

Upon becoming the Red Hulk, Ross was subjected to a revolutionary gamma-cosmic process envisioned by the Leader and M.O.D.O.K. This allowed him to transform from Ross to a red-skinned, massively-proportioned Hulk at will. He mentally controlled his transformation, would not revert with angered, relaxed, or unconscious, and maintained the same mind and personality throughout the process. As Red Hulk, he possessed a baseline Class 100 strength, superhuman stamina, and was virtually impervious to physical impact, injury, temperature and radiation extremes, etc. He could generate shockwaves by clapping his hands together and leap over a mile with his powerful leg muscles. If injured in some way, Rulk also had a healing factor that rapidly restored his body. When angry or agitated, Red Hulk began producing excess radiation to various effects. Some of this radiation manifested as heat, making his skin burn to the touch and even hot enough to melt metal on contact. To paraphrase, The Madder Hulk Gets, the Hotter Hulk Gets! This was also a symptom of the Red Hulk's body processing radiation at an accelerated rate, increasing his strength, stamina, durability, and healing powers like a traditional Hulk. However, it also meant he was consuming energy at an accelerated rate. So while an angry Red Hulk did become more powerful for a time, if he got too angry or remained angry and active for too long, he could exhaust his radiation levels for a period of time, forcing him to revert back to Ross.

The Red Hulk initially had a programmed secondary ability to absorb and manipulate outside sources of energy or radiation. He could depower Banner or other Hulks, draining away their gamma radiation into himself to refill his own radiation "tank". The gamma-cosmic process also allowed him to harness cosmic energy sources, wielding them for his own purposes or turning them back on the source. It was through this ability that he temporarily controlled the Silver Surfer's surfboard while depowering the Surfer himself and even punched out the Watcher. Bruce Banner eventually removed this ability from the Red Hulk after testing showed excess use of the power would ultimately stabilize the Red Hulk's physiology, locking him permanently as either Ross or the Red Hulk.

Robert L. Maverick, the new Red Hulk, achieved his powers through a Hulk plug-in technology. This bio-implant in his arm could be triggered to transform him into the Red Hulk using gamma radiation, maintaining that form for approximately one hour every day, requiring recharge times in-between. Despite his hue, Maverick seemed to demonstrate only traditional Hulk strength and powers, and not the unique heat-radiating or energy-absorbing powers of previous Red Hulks.

Flux was a military man exposed to gamma radiation to create a new Hulk. Like Banner, Flux was mentally unstable, which in his case manifested as a gamma-body constantly in flux between his human and Hulk forms. It gave him inconsistently superhuman strength, durability, and other Hulk-like properties.

Hello Mono

I have a couple of questions that I hope you may know the answer to

1) I know the character Equinox has a daughter called Janet who has some sort of energy generating abilities, does she produce fire, explosive energy or both?
2) Has it ever been confirmed whether Hit-Monkey's intelligence is due to him being the equivalent of a mutant of his species?

I know it's not a power question but I don't know who else to ask..
The character Sandra Verdugo's child (Ricky Myers) is said to be Doc. Samson's son, was he conceived before or after Samson gained his powers?
