  • Knight Templar: Has shades of it.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: He's a Superman Expy. It's a given. One supervillain tries to shoot him with a ray-gun capable of melting almost anything. Hyperion isn't even singed. Then he tries a sonic cannon. Doesn't do a thing. Then a last-ditch missile. His cape gets torn, but that's it.

  • Affably Evil
  • Brother–Sister Team: With Abyss
  • Evilutionary Biologist: Of the cosmic type, he and his sister Abyss have been traveling from world to world evolving species that they deemed worthy of evolution. But he's not evil, per se. Just misguided. Once Captain Universe tells him to stop destroying worlds, he agrees.

  • Heel–Face Turn:
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Alongside Abyss and the rest of the Ex Nihilii, turning a Beyonder into a tree.

  • Horned Humanoid: Sports two large uneven horns.

  • Harbinger of Impending Doom: After his birth he tries to warn everyone of the approaching White Event, unfortunately for him no one could understand a single word that he was saying.
  • Merlin Sickness: As of the eight month time jump he's aging in reverse, looking more like a teenager than the full grown adult he was when he was born on Mars. This is because he's part of a universal system that's broken, meaning he de-ages every time he uses his powers. It eventually kills him, though he eventually gets better.

  • Death by Origin Story: Inadvertently caused the deaths of everyone in his college when he received the Star Brand.
  • Flying Brick: The Star Brand effectively turns him into one of these, though one powerful enough to defend an entire planet.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: His early use of the Star Brand resulted in a lot of trouble.
  • Legacy Character: Kinda-sorta. The Star Brand's been around since The New Universe and caused a lot of trouble when it showed up in the MU proper 15+ years ago.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: The Star Brand is one of the most powerful weapons in existence, and the White Events are designed to confer these powers on beings who are properly suited to use that power. This White Event went wrong, but Kevin seems to be doing fine with the power he's got. Usually.
  • Power Tattoo: The aforementioned Star Brand.
  • Power Up Full Color Change: When he interfaces with the Earth as a last-ditch move, the color of his uniform (which was created by his powers) permanently changes from red to blue.

  • Superpower Lottery: Like you wouldn't believe.
  • Super Senses: After a time, the Star Brand begins to give him these. He can see atoms merging.
  • Super Strength: Strong enough to punch the Hulk into orbit, and a blow from Mjolnir doesn't even phase him. And that's just when he starts off.
  • Taking You with Me: To a Beyonder. Albeit not willingly.

  • Token Lesbian
  • Void Between the Worlds: How AIM captured her after she defeated the Avengers, they placed her in the empty space where two universes were destroyed.

Alter Ego: Emily Guerrero

First Appearance: Uncanny Avengers Vol. 3 #1 (December 2015)

Team Affiliations: Avengers Unity Squad

Joined In: Avengers #0 (October 2015)

An original character introduced in the post-Secret Wars run of Uncanny Avengers, Synapse represents Inhumans on the Unity Squad. Her powers allow her to telepathically link the people around her for instant communication, put other people to sleep, and see through other living creatures' eyes.


  • Archnemesis Dad: A variant; her grandfather's Terrigenesis drove him insane, and he became the Gaia's Vengeance-themed Well-Intentioned Extremist known as the Shredded Man.
  • Living Lie Detector: Under Cable's tutelage, Synapse realized that she has a synaesthetic reaction to other people's thoughts. When someone is telling the truth, she registers it as smelling like seaweed, while lies smell like strawberries.
  • Only Sane Man: Synapse is not a fan of the Terrigen Clouds and thinks the Inhumans are not doing enough to help stop the problems they cause. In issue #6 of Uncanny Avengers volume 3, she calls out Medusa to her face on the fact that the Shredded Man would never have become so dangerous if the Inhumans hadn't carelessly unleashed the Terrigen Clouds, and advocates the Inhumans burn the Clouds out of the atmosphere before they do any more harm.
  • Telepathy: Distinguished by it being presented less as interacting with minds but more remotely interfacing with animal nervous systems and biology connected to it.
  • Token Minority: She's the only Inhuman member on the team.

  • Affirmative Action Legacy: A mixed-race woman as Captain America.

First Appearance: New Avengers Vol. 4 #1 (December 2015) note  / U.S.Avengers Vol. 1 #1 (March 2017) note 

Team Affiliations: Avengers Ideas Mechanics, American Intelligence Mechanics

Joined In: U.S.Avengers Vol 1 #1

The daughter of Ho Yinsen, Toni Ho worked as the director of engineering of Avengers Ideas Mechanics before taking up the role of the new Iron Patriot in American Intelligence Mechanics.


  • Affirmative Action Legacy: As the new Iron Patriot, an Asian lesbian.
  • Asian and Nerdy: Just like her dad.
  • Battle Couple: With Aikku Jokinen, a.k.a. Enigma.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Capable of building a device to prevent Roberto Da Costa's powers from killing him using just some materials she found in the holding center they are trapped in. Like father like daughter.
  • Legacy Character: First she became the second Rescue, and later she became the third Iron Patriot.
  • Mini-Mecha: Toni's Hulkbuster-esque heavy weapons Iron Patriot armor is quite big —roughly the size of Red Hulk— but not gigantic.
  • Powered Armor: Her main focus. She starts with a custom built Rescue armor, but then graduates to the Iron Patriot.
  • Rescue Romance: Pun aside, she fell in love with Aikku, and vice versa, while trying to figure out how to get her out of the Pod armored suit.
  • Technical Pacifist: Toni hates using violence and even admits that she doesn't know how to build a gun. Thus, her Iron Patriot armor is designed to use force fields to fight. Though as New Avengers shows, piss her off enough, and those forcefields can cut off a person's head. As the series goes on, Aikku points out the "technical" is becoming more and more suspect, and that those weapons Toni's developing sure look a hell of a lot like guns. Aikku has to actually correct her usage of "nonlethal" to "less-than-lethal". It's heavily implied, if not outright stated, that her reasons for this insistence is to distance herself from Tony Stark.
  • Technological Pacifist: Allegedly, she's this. However, her use of her shields is clearly that of a weapon, not to mention her variety of other weapons like concussive shots.
  • Teen Genius: Has three simultaneous doctorates at Caltech by the age of twenty.
  • Twofer Token Minority: An Asian lesbian.
  • Workaholic: According to Aikku, she eats only once a day, twice if Aikku insists, and is nearly constantly focusing on improving her armor to the point of decreased emphasis on limiting lethality. Before that, her work focus was on saving Aikku from the Pod armor.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has dyed purple hair. Her natural hair is black.
