Darren Agonistes Cross

Search for 'Darren Agonistes Cross' on Amazon

Initially, Darren Cross had superb administrative and technical skills; the exact fields are not very clear, but probably include some sort of high technology skills. After an unspecified time (probably a few months) wearing his experimental pacemaker, he developed a handful of superhuman capabilities. The most obvious was strength (somewhere around Enhanced Human), but his speed, senses and healing were also enhanced to superhuman levels.

Darren Agonistes Cross was a particularly successful self-made man who headed his own high technology industry. However, he had a heart condition that led him into submitting to an implant of an experimental sophisticated nucleorganic pacemaker that saved his life. However, it worked too well and evenually began to increase the size of his entire circulatory system, and the rest of his body by extension. As a result he mutated into a slightly mishappen brute with superhuman attributes. Since no human heart could keep up with the implant's toll, he was forced to submit to a series of heart transplants. He eventually learned of Dr. Sondheim's heart transplant skills and decided to forcefully get her permanent help. At the same time, realizing that he would never get voluntary donors fast enough to survive, he kidnapped a number of vagants and homeless people and kept them captive as a source of living hearts.

While overseeing Dr. Sondheim's abduction, Darren met and tossed away Scott Lang, who wanted her help in saving his daughter's life.

His next heart transplant was interrupted by Scott Lang, debuting his new Ant-Man identity in a desperate attempt at finding help for his daughter, Cassie. When his CTE security personnel were defeated by Ant-Man, Darren was forced to act directly.

Dr. Sondheim misdirected Darren into believing he had indeed received a new heart during the interrupted surgery.

Darren fought Ant-Man (Scott Lang) so that he didn't free Dr. Sondheim -- and to get yet another unwilling heart donor. Ant-Man was briefly captured, but escaped and resumed his fight with Darren, who ended up collapsing from a heart attack.
