+ Stamina
+ Super Strength
+ Unarmed Combat

Bio:
Guido Carosella was a typical kid who was tormented and bullied by others. That all changed the day his mutant powers developed. Guido has the ability to absorb kinetic energy. While trying to get away from some bullies, Guido was struck by a bus and absorbed the energy.

Because he did not release the energy immediately, his body swelled and the growing muscles became disproportionate. Although Guido was no longer bullied by his peers, the gentle giant was still perceived as being different and separated from them. Soon after, his parents were in a freak accident when a satellite fell on them. Guido was able to settle out of court and received a huge sum of money. Unfortunately, he did not have good judgment when it came to spending his money. Soon his finances were just about depleted.

+++ X-FACTOR +++

Some time later, Guido is recruited by the U.S. government to become a member of the new incarnation of X-Factor. At a press conference, he reveals his new superhero name: Strong Guy. He also develops a strong bond with fellow team member Jamie Madrox, A.K.A Multiple Man, on account of their shared sense of humour.

While on a mission with X-Factor, Guido throws himself on a bomb, absorbing the blast, in order to protect Lila Cheney. Upon absorbing more energy than his body can handle, he suffers a heart attack and is hospitalised. After being healed by Forge, Guido decides to accompany Lila Cheney in her travels rather than return to X-Factor.

Notes:
Strong Guy was created by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz and first appeared in The New Mutants Vol.1 issue 29 (1985).
