Little is detailed of Cortez’ life before the zombie contagion arrived on Earth, though it presumably followed much the same course as Fabian Cortez of Earth-616.

He, and the other Acolytes are on Asteroid M when a zombified Sentry arrives on Earth and Magneto rushes off to try and help.[1]

Later, Asteroid M manages to contact Magneto, and arrange a rendevous point for extraction, however when they get there, there is no sign of Magneto, though an apparently chewed up Black Panther approaches them. After a brief battle, they finally confirm that T’challa is uninfected, however the still-animated head of Wasp is, and so take it study.

Back on board Asteroid M, Cortez introduces T’Challa to the remaining Acolytes.[2]

5 Years Later

He returns to Earth with T'Challa, and at some point in the next 35 years he dies.


  • Power Augmentation Manipulation: Cortez had the ability to augment the powers of other mutants, often to dangerous levels. Cortez could also use his power to read genetic code and harm other mutants while appearing to heal them. He may also have some control over his own power's energy field, possibly being able to constrict it around a foe.


  • Fabian was an experienced leader.

Strength level

  • Cortez possessed the normal human strength of a man of his age, height, and build who engaged in intensive regular exercise.
