* ''{{ComicBook/Aquila}}'': When chained up by his captor, Aquila confirms the three abilities his pact with a supernatural entity gave him: immortality (immune to age, sleep, and disease), HealingFactor, able to see the evil in people's souls... and reveals there was a fourth one: locks, ropes and chains only hold him up for as long as he wants them to.
