Also PAD set forth the theory post-death that the longer a dupe is left unabsorbed the more independent it becomes, which would seem to back up the idea that if the post-Genosha pre-death Jaime stayed as at least three after enough time those dupes could develop enough of a separate personality that the two healthy dupes would have two different ways of coping with watching "myself" die explaining the varying emotional states.

Hi, can I get PD's on Shade (Jacob Nash) and Schizoid Man (Chip Martin)?

Also are there PD's on the following Reavers (both Skullbusters, Bonebreaker, Cylla Markham, Cole/Reese/Macon)?

In addition to the above questions, if Mad Jim Jaspers' reality altering power could affect time, space, matter, and energy, then how was he defeated? The void he was sent to was said to have no reality for him to manipulate. He couldn't manipulate empty space?

Shade was the recipient of an incantation which linked him to the astral plane. The burn mark on his neck was a sigil which allowed him to physically travel into the astral plane and return to Earth. On Earth, he could seemingly exchange between a physical and astral state at will. In his astral state, Shade was transparent and intangible, untouchable by any physical attack or obstacle. In order to access his changing form freely, however, Shade needed to use other human beings as fuel. Without them, he was unable to assume a physical state at all while on Earth. In order to harvest energy from people, Shade absorbed them into his form from Earth and into the astral plane. He then had to place them in a specific vessel he maintained on the astral plane. Once he did so, each person provided him with one day of being solid on Earth. He rapidly changed from tangible to intangible fighting Spider-Man, so it was apparently cumulative time. It wasn't explained what would happen to the people once their 24 hours of use was up.

Chip Martin, the Schizoid Man, had various psychic powers due to the drugs used on his mother during his birth. Chip was empathic, sensitive to the presence of heightened emotion in his vicinity and possibly even feeding off of it. He was capable of levitating matter and exerting telekinetic force. Primarily, his power manifested as psychoplasmic constructs forged from his mind -- creatures and objects that appeared real but were actually forged of mental energy. This could include anything from a spray of knives to demons summoned from his imagination.

There's nothing specific to say about the Reavers as a whole. With the exception of Pretty Boy, few of them ever demonstrated unique talents, features, or abilities. They all had superhuman strength, speed, endurance, and durability thanks to their cybernetics, and carried guns.

Mad Jim Jaspers could not manipulate space, only the positioning of objects within space. His teleporting was the moving of objects across the canvass of space, not influencing space itself. And, in the emptiness where Earth-238 once existed, even space itself was not present. The space was not empty -- there was no space at all.

Given his origin, it hasn't been made heads or tails to if Schizoid Man's a mutant or not, has it?

It could go either way. The drugs could have triggered an X-gene, or been responsible for an independent mutation.

Hello Mono.

Has as there ever been any confirmation of how America Chavez was born? was she even 'born' in a traditional sense?

Also, Corvus Glaive and Black Dwarf have often called each other 'brother', has it ever been stated that they're actually biological siblings or is it more akin to the 'sister' relationship between Gamora and Nebula in the MCU.

She was conceived and carried to term on the Utopian Parallel universe by her natural mothers, one of whom was a native of the Parallel, the other was an extra-dimensional immigrant.

Corvus and Black Dwarf seem to be literal brothers, per the Black Order limited series.

Hmm... how to put this delicately, was there a sperm donor? was she genetically engineered before being placed in utero? or some sort of cosmic immaculate conception?

She is genetically the daughter of Elena of the Utopian Parallel and Amalia of Planet Fuertona, her mothers. Her conception, coming to term, and birth were not presented as anything artificial or unusual in the life of people from the Utopian Parallel. In that reality, under the guardianship of the Demiurge, the sentient lifeforce and reality-altering entity supreme, two women in love can have a baby. Just can.

Nothing detailed. He was a normal human being. As his elderly body died, he was preserved as a cyborg. That cyborg body had superhuman strength, speed, endurance, and durability, but no other unique features of note.
