Powers and Abilities

Coffin is now a highly powerful, superhuman brick. He retains all of his deadly skills. That made him tough enough to actually beat the Monster in the sewers.


Coffin’s existence as a psionic manifestation was rather short. He came very close to killing X, finding him just after Wildboy Willie McCone had injected him with a virus designed to neutralize his power. Miki D. had rescued X and was dragging the badly hurting X in the sewers, when Coffin found them.

Coffin was going to make very short work of the defenseless X, but Miki D managed to sic the Monster on Coffin. While Coffin was too powerful even for the Monster, by the time he beat the creature he had lost track of his prey.

Coffin in psionic form quoting Davenant

Coffin later found X when the vigilante was having his confrontation with the renegade general who had created him ; Coffin ripped the general in two to get to X. X, however, had understood the truth about Toby Klein and had him brought to the pier where Coffin was. He shot Klein in the head, killing him and destroying Coffin’s form.


See illustration.


Little change from his personality as Coffin.


“I’ll tell you a great secret, my friend. Don’t wait for the last judgment. It happens every day. Thou strong seducer, opportunity.”
