Age of Apocalypse
Place of Birth
X-Men: Alpha (1995)
Abyss is also able to stretch his body and capture things in his tendril-like appendages, absorb some of their strength, and then deposit them in his pocket dimension. It is unknown whether anything can survive in this pocket dimension; it is possible that someday some of his victims could escape.Abyss also showed signs that he may have some sort of limited telepathy or empathy.
During the evacuation of Maine, Abyss was in charge of stopping the X-Men and the Sentinels from helping the humans escape North America. He kidnapped a young boy and used him to draw Quicksilver into the open. Obviously obsessed with impressing Apocalypse by capturing the son of Magneto, Abyss abandoned his main goal of stopping the evacuation and allowed it to occur. He met Quicksilver but was unable to defeat the X-Men leader. Quicksilver was able to save the kidnapped boy and defeat Abyss with the help of his fellow X-Man, Storm.Following this defeat, Abyss was placed in charge of interrogating the mysterious man known as Bishop. With the assistance of the Shadow King and the Madri Abyss began his interrogation. The X-Men staged a daring raid to free him and Abyss allowed his ego to get in the way of completing his mission. This time it cost him more than just his objective, however. Abyss underestimated the strength of the mutant Banshee and his sonic scream. Flying into Abyss, Banshee cut loose with the full fury of his powers and it appeared that he ripped Abyss apart. Abyss has not been heard from since and it is assumed that he is dead. But whether a mutant with his powers and no true physical form could ever truly die is unknown.
