Context

Composite only appeared in one 1993 Guardians of the Galaxy story arc, during the Gallagher run.

There’s nothing notable about him (except maybe for his sort-of-cool powers). But he’s part of a small cadre of super-thugs, and writeups.org loves having ready-to-run profiles for those.

  • Group Affiliation: Inhuman Assassin Squad.
  • Base Of Operations: formerly Attilan, the Moon.

Powers and Abilities

Engineered to possess the powers of the 20th Century Royal Family of the Inhumans, Composite has a wide range of abilities.

  • He has complete control of his long, tough, hair, which he can stretch to ensnare opponents (Medusa).
  • His hoof-like feet can send shockwaves through the ground, exploding the surface beneath his enemies (Gorgon).
  • He has extremely sensitive hearing.
  • He can project a beam of energy from the fork on his forehead (Black Bolt).
  • He can allegedly emit a devastating burst of sonic energy by speaking (Block Bolt).

This last ability is held in check by the Sonic Diffusion Muzzle he wears, which Loki holds the key to. This allows Composite to speak normally.


History

Composite is the result of a selective breeding program run by Loki on the enslaved Inhumans in the 31st Century. He was designed to create a champion with all the powers of the Inhuman Royal Family of the 20th Century.

Loki kept his control of them secret for decades. The God of Mischief groomed Composite and a small cadre of Inhumans to be his personal strike force to help him claim the throne of Asgard .

Just as the time arrived to attack, the Guardians of the Galaxy investigated the Inhumans enslavement. That brought them into conflict with the Inhuman Assassin Squad. Composite used shockwaves to delay the Guardians by burying them under a cave-in. he later detected Talon’s attempts at stealthy infiltration of the compound, easily disabling him.

Asgard

The Guardians soon catch up to them to free Talon. But the Inhumans leave the battle as Loki calls on them to join him in his invasion of Asgard.

Attacking Asgard, they made significant headway against its defences, until the Guardians arrived to oppose them. When Woden, son of Thor joined the Guardians, Composite tries to use his shockwave attack against him. But they get reflected back at him, knocking him out.

The Inhumans and Loki were soon defeated. They were banished to The Black Canyon, an inescapable prison nestled between Niflheim and Muspelheim.


Personality

Composite has been raised to be completely obedient to Loki, following his orders unquestioningly.

He rarely speaks, other than to acknowledge his orders, or pass them on to the other Inhumans.

“Your spoken word is law, sire !”


DC Universe History

Freed from some of the Dominators chambers, on the Moon, by the Time Trapper, the Inhumans joined his quest for revenge on Glorith. They attacked her on the Khund throne world, while she orchestrated military actions against the UP. They came into conflict with a squad of Legionnaires, who forgot about them when Glorith erased them and the Trapper from history.

The Trapper managed to save them from complete destruction, although they are currently trapped within him. With the Dominator mindwipes having removed their previous memories, Glorith’s actions have now made it impossible for them to ever learn who they were.

Design Notes

He’s supposed to have the powers of the 20th Century Inhumans Royal Family, but I’ve limited the write-up to those he’s exhibited. He could have further powers, such as Weakness Detection, Water Freedom, and elemental control powers.
