Miles Warren typically has no superhuman powers. As the Jackal, he originally wore a costume with claws built into the gloves of his body suit which were tipped with narcotic or paralytic drugs or could act as electrical prods. Warren had an advanced knowledge of genetics and worked for a time with the High Evolutionary (who in turn had knowledge from Phaedar and Sinister). As a result, Warren was incredibly skilled at human cloning, engineering recombinant DNA viruses, and even artificial animal evolution.

During the Clone Saga, the Jackal resurfaced as an animal hybrid. He had natural fur, claws, and superhuman physical prowess including increased strength, speed, agility, endurance, reflexes, and recuperative powers. At the time, he claimed to be the original Miles Warren bio-engineered to possess superhuman abilities. At one point, the Scarlet Spider learned Warren's history from the High Evolutionary, and how Warren had created his own New Man based on a jackal, only for it to kill his family. The story was ambiguous, leaving open the possibility that Warren WAS that man-jackal in an uncontrolled mutation, or that the original man-jackal was the Jackal from the Clone Saga, posing as his own creator. In any case, post-Clone Saga stories have presented a non-mutated version of Warren as the "original" Miles Warren, suggesting the Clone Saga's Jackal was, if anything, a mutated clone.

Warren is capable of producing clones with special abilities. The Carrion Virus was a form of recombinant DNA that could infect a host with a unique power set and a copy of Warren's memories and personality, genetically preserved. The original Carrion was a clone of Warren, but subsequent ones were independent people mutated and corrupted by the virus's influence. See page 7 of the Archives for a full PD on Carrion. Jackal frequent used clone bodies to send into danger while keeping the real Warren unmolested. The clones he created could contain behavioral programming or self-destruct triggers, which Jackal could activate on command.

Greetings Monolith, and Happy New Year... Can you please tell me which model armor Tony Stark is currently sporting? I'm a bit behind due to Covid-19 shutdowns in NYC. Thanks 8-)

Was Jenskot a mutant, or a human specially trained to use TP/TK?

It's deliberately ambiguous.

I was reading Healer's character entry on the site and was curious: can he only heal mutants?

Traditionally, yes, although I think he has been showing the ability to affect humans since his resurrection.

I searched, what I felt is, thoroughly, but I cannot find Mystique. I'm assuming she's under a group, but I also looked for Brotherhood as well. I assume she's in here somewhere?

I thought to look under that but I couldn't remember the team's actual name. Thank you!

What are the "Laws of Time" that prevent the Time-Keepers from directly interfering in a timeline's events? I saw the term used during the TimeQuake storyline (even though it was used by the Time-Twisters in disguise).

Nothing that exists beyond that particular story.

Is there a PD on Stratosfire (Sandy Vincent)?
