The Super-Adaptoid wiki last edited by TheDalek on 04/11/14 03:20PM View full history

Origin

The Super-Adaptoid was created by AIM members who specialized in bio-chemical research. It was composed of unstable molecules that were invented by Reed Richards and empowered with a sliver of the Cosmic Cube, making him a quasi-sibling of Kubik. The Super-Adaptoid was originally simply the Adaptoid. Its main purpose was to defeat Captain America, which it did by disguising itself as Jarvis and drugging some coffee of Captain America's. However, the Adaptoid was then defeated by the Tumbler, who thought it to be the real Captain America. The Adaptoid became the Super-Adaptoid after the other Avengers ( Goliath, Wasp and Hawkeye) all examined it.

Major Story Arcs

Versus the Avengers

With its new powers, the Super-Adaptoid seemingly killed Captain America. However, it then went into hiding, in case AIM destroyed it since it had fulfilled its purpose. When the Super-Adaptoid was sent to fight the original X-Men it was confronted by Mimic and while trying to absorb Mimic’s power an energy backlash removed all of the powers he had copied thus far. During a confrontation with the Avengers, it managed to enter the Avengers Mansion and discover the truth of his origins. It then called Kubik, quickly absorbing all its power. Super-Adaptoid sent Kubik to another dimension claiming that if Kubik interfered their merged power could destroy reality. Now with godlike power the Super-Adaptoid reverted to his original clean-slate form and began duplicating himself. He claimed that it would create a new race. However, Captain America was able to stop it. Kubik removed Super-Adaptoid's abilities to absorbed others powers, leaving him inert. A Doombot re-powered the Super-Adaptoid which went on to fight the Fantastic Four.

Those “selected” beings are allowed limited self instead of being totally merge with the Phalanx’s hive mind. It claimed that it left Earth because it was disgusted with humans. It fought Quasar (Phyla-Vell) absorbing her quantum bands and gaining the knowledge of where the savor of the Kree was located. It nearly succeeded in defeating her twice, until she figure that the Super-Adaptoid had no ability to manifest the quantum energy base form, instead it relied on mimicking all the forms Phyla had previously use agent it. She overwhelm it with the concept of imagination and stabbed it with her quantum sword, and the Super-Adaptoid was once more defeated.
