Powers and Abilities

Javitz is a bruiser with superhuman size and strength. He was strong and resilient enough to engage Colossus for a bit, but was soon hammered down by the young Russian gentleman.


Javitz was among the cohort of Acolytes recruits first seen when Cortez established the Acolyte’s base on the French Atlantic coast. When this base (hidden in a monastery) was stormed by the X-Men, Javitz was beaten up by Colossus and eventually taken out by Cyclops.

Javitz, along with the other Acolytes, later moved to a new base, the cloaked space station Avalon. At this point, Magneto had returned but had been mindwiped by Xavier, and the actual leader of the Acolytes was his lieutenant, Exodus. Avalon was eventually destroyed in a titanic fight between Exodus and Holocaust ; during that fight Javitz attempted to charge Holocaust to assist Exodus, but Holocaust seized him by the throat at seemingly disintegrated him.

Javitz somehow came back, though — some theorize that he had been cloned, or perhaps Holocaust had just teleported him away. He was part of the Acolytes who clashed with the forces of the High Evolutionary, the Heroes for Hire and Quicksilver, though he did not play an important role in those battles.

Later, after Magneto returned and set the Acolytes on an even more militant path, Javitz took part in several terrorist operations.

Javitz hasn’t been seen since. He may have left when the Acolytes split between the Carrion Cove faction and the loyalists, or he may have died during the Sentinels onslaught on Genosha.

A mutant supremacist bully, and a fairly typical Acolyte.


“For years, I have observed you from afar. The mighty Cyclops and his X-Men — suppressing any mutant who didn’t embrace the mainstream ! You were so eager to maintain the status quo.”

“It is an affront to even mention the hated name of Xavier in these sacred halls !”
