Powers and Abilities

Landslide has much the same powers as Avalanche. He tends to mostly creates linear shockwaves ripping the Earth – using Earth Control to inflict Bashing damage. Like Avalanche, he can pulverize rock and earth with but a gesture ; unlike Avalanche, he can affect living beings directly with his power.


History

The Outcasts are disfigured or otherwise hideous people who fled the surface world to disappear in the extensive network of underground caves under Marvel Earth. They eventually found the subterranean realm of the Mole Man, who had underwent a very similar trial, and gradually formed the Outcasts. The Mole Man gave the Outcasts superhuman powers, and occasionally relied on them as a group of super-operatives.

The Outcasts where first seen when the Mole Man and Kala crossed swords and champions during the Winter Olympic Games in a contest to find the source of eternal youth ; the tangled with Spider-Man, the Hulk and some Olympic champions who had been outfitted with high-tech gear.

Some time later, as Subterranea was shaken by tremors, Landslide senses this was the work of another man wielding powers much like his own, and thus not a natural phenomenon. He ventured alone to the surface, and found Avalanche, who was trying to hold L.A.’s airport hostage. The two earth-movers clashed as Avalanche reacted aggressively, and a nearby Hulk was caught into the fray. Hulk saved a landing plane, than took out Avalanche. The problem solved, Landslide slid away.

They later fought against an invasion of Dire Wraiths in parts of Subterranea under Virginia – then against Rom and Starshine, whom they briefly mistook for Wraiths while the Space Knights thought they were responsible for disappearances in the surface world.

Years later, during the events of the Subterranean War, Kala fled Subterranea to gain assistance from the heroes of the surface world. She went to Iron Man, whom she had first encountered years before. The Outcasts, under orders of the Mole Man that Kala must not be allowed to leave his realm, followed her and attempted to force her to return. The Outcasts attacked Iron Man, with Digger and Landslide grabbing Kala and headed back to their realm.

Kala convinced them to take her to the Netherworlders, but the Netherworlders sought to kill her for past actions. However, Iron Man arrived and fought them off, with assistance from Digger and Landslide. The Netherworlders, fearing destruction from her allies, elected to offer Kala their rule once again. However, Kala declined the offer, and left to try to find the missing Mole Man.


Description

Landslide is very skinny.


Personality

Doesn’t seem particularly aggressive – in fact he often sounds like he wants to be a super-hero for Subterranea.


Quotes

“Your mad acts of destruction must cease, surface-dweller, or you shall answer for them to Landslide !”
