Powers and Abilities

Mark has the strength and ability of a regular man with his size and build. All of his powers come from the high-tech containment suit that all humans need to wear in order to survive in the far future.

The Kid wears body armor/containment suit that enables him to fly and fire extremely powerful energy blasts. The armor can give Mark clean air for up to six hours in an airless environment and it purifies all other air that goes to him. The armor can seal itself, allowing Mark to travel in space or under water. It has a force field that protects him.

The armor picks up radio signals and increases his strength tenfold. The armor also rejuvenates him and keeps him energetic and young looking. The armor can change color and alter its look with proper programming.


When things were going to hell in the far flung future and it looked as though the world was going to come to an end, Mark Osborn defied the law and sent himself back in time on a one way trip to his favorite era – the 1970s. Unfortunately for Mark, the time machine’s digital readout had a couple of burned out lights and he ended up arriving in the 1990s instead.

Mark helped Kill-Cat battle the super-powered criminal, Cement Man, upon arriving in our era and Kill-Cat through that he would make a suitable crime-fighting partner. Taking the name Kid Avenger, the two became the Deadly Duo and they fought crime in Detroit for a couple of years before Kill-Cat inadvertently destroyed the city during a Martian attack. The two relocated to Chicago, Illinois.

The Kid Avenger was later recruited by the Dragon to join the government team : Special Operations Strikeforce (S.O.S.) and is currently living in their headquarters, Complex 1, in Washington D.C.


Due to more and more mixed marriages, there’s only one race in the far future. Mark’s skin is naturally golden brown.

DC Universe History

The parallel with the Chicago Underworld depicted in Hawkman should be obvious, and the Freak Force program would be quite logical. Aside from the Conglomerate, there are too few minor super-heroes groups in the DCU anyway, as everything is centered on the JLA.
