Powers and Abilities
Organic Silicon Transformation
Ajax has the superhuman ability to convert the tissue of his entire body into an organic crystalline-like substance. He is able to transform into this armour-like state at will (the process is virtually instantaneous) and remain in that form for an as yet undetermined amount of time. Once in his armoured form he remains so until he consciously wills himself back to normal. If he is rendered unconscious, however, he spontaneously reverts to his normal form.
While in the armoured state, Ajax possesses the same degree of mobility that he does in his normal form. The conversion from flesh and bone to organic silicon is accomplished by a psionic whole-brain interface with an ionic form of silicon, located in another dimension. In willing the act of transformation, Ajax actually exchanges silicon atoms for his carbon atoms. The psionic interface with the other dimension re-creates all of Ajax's body in functionally similar organic ionic-silicon materials. The process by which Ajax gains additional mass from an unknown, perhaps extra-dimensional, force remains unknown. Ajax cannot become partially or selectively armoured; his body is either entirely converted or not.
Superhuman Strength: Ajax possesses vast superhuman strength, enabling him to lift somewhere in excess of 200 tons. His fists are capable of striking with a maximum force force equivalent to 500 pounds of TNT. Ajax's great strength also extends into the highly developed and powerful muscles of his legs, enabling him to leap great distances. He can jump 870 feet straight into the air. He has been known to cover a distance of 2 miles in a single bound.
Prism-like Armour/Superhuman Durability: Because Ajax's silica-like armour essentially makes him a living prism, he has the ability to to refract light and beam-based weaponry; he can redirect the blast and channel it back towards it's source. In addition to his great strength, Ajax's bodily tissues are substantially harder and more resistant to injury than the tissues of an ordinary human. Ajax is nearly invulnerable to almost all physical attacks, and is totally invulnerable to extreme temperatures.
Minor Shape-shifting: Because of Ajax's highly advanced structure, he can perform various crystalline feats with his body. He is able to alter his body to create crude tools, such as blades. Furthermore, he can shoot diamond-like shards (which can cut through most Earthen materials), and cause crystalline structures to erect from the ground.
Superhuman Stamina: Ajax's highly advanced musculature produces vastly less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human. He is capable of physically exerting himself at peak capacity for several days before the build up of fatigue toxins in his blood begins to impair him.
Regenerative Healing Factor: Despite his great physical resilience, it is possible to injure him. However, he possesses an accelerated healing factor. As a result, he is capable of regenerating great amounts of damaged or destroyed armour with much greater speed and efficiency than an ordinary human. Ajax is also immune to all known Earthly diseases and infections.
Superhuman Speed: Regardless of his size, Ajax's superhumanly strong legs allow him to run at speeds that are far beyond the natural physical limits of even the finest human athlete. Nevertheless, this does not grant him sufficiently enhanced reflexes as smaller foes exploit Ajax's size and use it to their advantage. However, he has been fast enough to catch mortar shells shot at him.
