Telepathic Immunity: According to Emma Frost, his mind is too vast and confusing for any telepath to even read it not to mention control it.
Nuclear Explosion: He can create controllable nuclear explosions, powerful enough to obliterate entire town
Leader of Mercator
After M-Day, Absolon was one of the few mutants who retained his powers. Absolon headed to the Xavier Institute, where he immediately put himself on the radar of O*N*E by easily toppling a Sentinel that was about to crush a caterpillar. They considered him a serious threat especially with the other mutants treating him as a savior-like figure. Absolon also began a relationship with Lorelei Travis after restoring her hair.
