Mindwave attacks the police station

" He then used his powers to destroy the station and kill the officers present before calmly surrendering to the Thunderbolts.[1]

Mindwave was escorted to a cell in Thunderbolts Mountain. When the guards walked away, he began a telepathic conversation with fellow prisoners Caprice, Bluestreak and Mirage. Together, the four attempted to gain intel on the prison so that they could plan an escape and kill all the Thunderbolts after driving them insane. He suggested that it would be fun to interfere with the surgery scheduled to be performed on Bullseye and when Radioactive Man and Songbird discovered the truth about the Caged Angels and he was the one who induced the Radioactive Man to threaten to give everyone cancer. However, Bullseye recovered from his surgery while Mindwave was focusing on the other Thunderbolts, and killed Mindwave and his allies in their cells using thrown scalpels.[2]


Telekinesis: Mindwave was a very powerful telekinetic, with the ability to destroy structures and halt and redirect hails of bullets in mid-flight.

Mindwave wore a costume composed of dark body armor and a helmet resembling a gas mask.

  • Mindwave has specifically noted that his name doesn't have a hyphen to distance himself from the original Mind-Wave.[1]
