History

A'Kurru U'mbaya was a Wakandan biochemist who was empowered through his experiments with the ability to transform his flesh into "wood". He used his powers to try to seize the throne.[1]

Attributes

Powers

  • "Wooden" Shapeshifting: Icon has the power to transform his flesh into "wood" -- with his head appearing as an elongated African mask. Although this wood seems more durable and impervious than normal wood, he is also able to control it to give him limited shape-shifting abilities, such as elongating his limbs and forming weapons with his hands.
    • Icon can also cause a similar transformation in others -- transforming them into replicas of himself (without the shape-shifting abilities) under his direct control.

Weaknesses

He can only maintain his superhuman form for one hour at a time.
