Bevatron of the Hellions (New Mutants enemy) (Marvel Comics)

Bevatron


Context

Bevatron was a member of the original Hellions of the White Queen (Emma Frost). If you’re not familiar with these guys, you should first read our Hellions team profile for context.

Like his colleague Beef, he joined the team in 1991. That was not too long before its demise. Thus, there is little material about him. But he has a fairly generic style and power, so he’s convenient for gamemasters.


Background

  • Real Name: Fabian Maréchal-Julbin
  • Marital Status: Presumed single.
  • Known Relatives: None.
  • Group Affiliation: Hellions (Mass. Ac.).
  • Base Of Operations: Massachusetts Academy.
  • Height: 5’8” Weight: 150 lbs.
  • Eyes: Grey Hair: Blond


Powers and Abilities

Bevatron could project streams of lightning from his hands. Howbeit, he did not have much training with them. Bevatron later described these blasts as accelerated particles, as one would suspect based upon his code name.

Perhaps because of the wide variety of energies deployed by this attack, Bevatron’s bolts seem good at overcoming defenses. They could punch through Cannonball’s force field.

Before his death, Maréchal-Julbin obviously had no combat experience. It seems likely that he had just been recruited when the Hellions clashed with the New Warriors.


History

See our “base camp” article for the Hellions (Massachusetts Academy).


Description

See illustration.


Personality

Bevatron seemed to be a well meaning but inexperienced youth. He was uncomfortable among his less palatable colleagues. While he obviously was no villain material, he seemed very loyal toward the White Queen, and quickly became physically aggressive when she was threatened. This loyalty may have been telepathically induced.

All of this was gone as a techno-organic revenant, and he acted as brutally as his colleague Beef.


Quotes

“Beef, mon ami, perhaps you should cure your more sexist tendencies, non ?”
