View full history
Apex was the child of a couple that desperately wanted a superhuman child. They ended up with Apex, who would spend half of their time as Tim and half as Katy. Their parents kept them a secret, which infuriated Katy. She trained herself to be as powerful as she could possibly be, and caused a car accident, telling her parents that Tim was dead after suppressing him. She was sent to Braddock Academy, where she was trained, all while her brother watched, powerless to do anything. This is the story that Tim relays to the others, but it is debatable whether or not it is accurate.
Apex was created by writer Dennis Hopeless and artist Kevin Walker. They first appeared in the story "Worse Things" in Avengers Arena #1 (Nov. 2013).
When Apex was kidnapped by Arcade and sent to Murderworld, Katy used her powers to take out the competition using Death Lockette to defeat Juston Seyfert and Darkhawk. When traveling through Murderworld, she was attacked, leaving her vulnerable, allowing Tim to take control of their body. Altering explaining things to the rest of the people in Murderworld, they take a vote on whether or not to execute him. The majority voted to allow them to live, but decide to tie Tim up and place him under guard. However, when Nico Minoru has her back turned, Katy takes control again and kills Juston.
Powers and Abilities
Apex can fly, although she says she can't reach high speeds in the air. She is also a great manipulator and can - as she says herself - talk people into almost anything. She shares her body with her brother, Tim, and each struggles to gain control of the body.
