Super strength; able to release explosive energy bursts from his finger-tips; by carefully releasing a steady stream of blast from his fingers, Blastaar can propel himself through the air in the manner of a rocket powered by a nuclear engine.
Thick, resistant skin, and the ability to withstand immense amounts of pressure and temperature. Blast can go weeks without nourishment.
Blastaar is a member of a race called the Balurrians, based in the Negative Zone. He ruled them for years as a brutal leader until they finally rose up and overthrew him, then sealed him up within a containment suit and set him adrift. It was only when the inhuman Triton braved the Negative Zone to save an adrift Mister Fantastic that the Explosive Belt around Earth revived Blastaar and he followed the pair through their portal and into the Baxter Building. There he met up with and joined the Sandman in order to take over Earth, but the Fantastic Four, with the help of Crystal, beat him and used one of Reed's inventions to shut off his powers, allowing them to return him to the Negative Zone. Since then, Blastaar has tried to return to Earth and conquer it, but has been repulsed many times by various super heroes; including the Fantastic Four and the Avengers. While adventuring in the Negative Zone, the Fantastic Four have since run into Blastaar again on many occasions. Blastaar has also regained the throne of Baluur for himself, and then begun a conquest of the Negative Zone, which has been primarily kept in check by the interference of Blastaar's hated enemy, Annihilus.
