Chrome was one of the founding members of the Acolytes. He was aboard Asteroid M as it plummeted towards Earth.[2] In an effort to shield Magneto from harm, Chrome used his powerful abilities to encase his leader in a protective shell. This act protected Magneto when the asteroid crashed. Chrome, however, could not act in time to save himself, and perished.[3]


Quantum Transmutation: Chrome possessed the Mutant ability to transmute elements and compounds, even those of living beings.

  • Flight: Chrome could fly at high speeds by partially transforming the air around him into combustible materials, producing a rocket-like thrust (presumably, his power protected him from being burned).
