Stewart Ward was infected with a Z'Nox pathogen which slowly consumed his body, transforming it into an oozing, pink mass - although Ward could seemingly assume human form at will. He could spread his disease to others, either via contact or projectile blasts. Once infected, victims of Ward's pathogen would develop an oozing pink rash, and would spread the virus to anyone they came in contact with. Ward also demonstrated the ability to transform infectees into monstrous, mindless "viral zombies", although it appears that this required prolonged contact. The pathogen gradually ate away at Ward's body, slowly killing him.
He also possessed some form of energy powers, which may have been an early manifestation of his long-suppressed viral infection powers. Ward was also skilled with the use of firearms and computers, and was a talented politician.
United States Senator and enemy of Spider-Man.
