Living Monolith
Real Name: Ahmet Abdol
Search for 'Living Monolith' on Amazon


Powers:
Able to absorb ambient cosmic energy to allow transformation into Living Monolith; absorb large amounts of cosmic radiation to increase his size, mass, strength, and resistance to injury, and the projection of energy as concussive force, intense heat, or sonic vibrations

Bio:
Ahmet Abdol was a professor of ancient Egyptology who discovered he had the ability to manipulate cosmic energy, mainly by absorbing it and projecting it as energy blasts. Deciding to use his powers for his own personal gain, Abdol created a cult around himself and set about his plan to rule the world. Abdol was the Living Pharaoh while in his normal appearance, but once he obtained enough cosmic energy, he would increase in size, mass, and power, thus becoming the Living Monolith.

Abdol discovered that another mutant, Havok (Alex Summers, brother to Scott Summers also known as Cyclops) could absorb and project cosmic energy more easily then Abdol could. Abdol kidnapped Havok and used him to increase his power. Abdol has mainly been an X-Men villain, usually using Havok to become the Living Monolith. He has also used other superheroes, including the Fantastic Four (who gained their super powers from exposure to cosmic rays). He even killed his own daughter to achieve his goal. Though he is usually the one pulling the strings, another X-Men villain, Apocalypse, wanted to use the Living Monolith to drain the powers of other super-beings. Abdol went on a rampage, and several Marvel heroes attempted to stop him. Eventually Abdol grew so large that Thor had to throw him into outer space, where the Living Monolith eventually became a Living Planet, similar to Ego.
The Living Monolith's history was later retconned. It was revealed that Abdol's powers did not spring from an inherent mutant, but rather from a procedure performed on him by Mister Sinister. Sinister spliced certain x-genes from Alex Summers into his genome, thus giving Abdol the ability to absorb cosmic energy. Since his powers were genetically similar to Havok's, this explained why their abilities interfered with one another's.
