Powers & Abilities

Mister Abnormal can stretch and morph much like Mister Fantastic or the Elongated Man, and can also transform his extremities a bit like Plastic Man does. He’s good at deforming his body to avoid or absorb impacts.

He is fond of turning his extremities into something special to hit his opponents with, allowing him to hit with superhuman force. Past examples have included hammers, tennis rackets, sledges, boxing gloves, mattocks, elephant feet, mauls and ram heads.

Mr. Abnormal has a limited ability to disguise himself as ordinary objects, but apparently cannot change his colour or the appearance of his head.

With these limitations, he’s usually limited to imitating simple background objects such as a lamp post, and rely on people not really looking at lamp posts.

His clothing duplicates the properties of his body and can be stretched and deformed without damage. This might be limited to the clothes he was wearing at the time of his accident, though.


History

While sneaking into a toys factory to steal limited edition action figures, an obsessive collector was caught in an accidental spurt of chemicals. These reacted oddly with his body chemistry, and endowed him with stretchy powers.

Now calling himself Mr. Abnormal,he stole numerous genre collectibles, but clashed with Speedball (Robbie Baldwin). On one occasion, he was defeated by Speedball and Spider-Girl (May “Mayday” Parker).

Mister Abnormal vs. Spider-Girl and Speedball

Mister Abnormal was later hired by Funny Face to join his Savage Six and set up a gauntlet for Spider-Girl to run. Using her sheer speed, Spider-Girl defeated Mister Abnormal as he tried to grab her, tricking him into tying himself into a giant knot.

He was then recruited out of prison to join a villains team working for the government under the orders of Agent Weadon, and with Kaine as a field commander. This team failed to prevent the theft of a capsule holding the Carnage symbiote, and was likewise ineffective when attempting to stop Carnage.


Description

See illustrations.

Personality

Creepy, obsessive, socially maladjusted, sexually inappropriate and attempting to project an image of himself based on fictional characters. He’s chiefly obsessed with collecting comics and toys, though he apparently has come to consider that being a mercenary and buying stuff was better than stealing them.

In action, Mr. Abnormal goes for the cheerfully sinister thing, acting upbeat and bombastic as he tries to kill people. He’s also proud of his ability to plan for encounters, though said plans are actually run-of-the-mill.


Quotes

(Hammering on Speedball) “Bad hero ! Bad ! Bad !! BAD ! You’re all that stands between me and a complete collection of Police Comics !”

“Welcome to my subterranean sanctuary for the continuing study of SUFFERING and SORROW !”
