Detailed Information of Superhero

Abyss (Ex Nihilo’s) (Earth-616)

This specimen was an Abyss carried as an egg along with her brother the Gardener Ex Nihilo by an Aleph, who taught them to transform any species they encountered into perfect creatures. That is to accomplish their purpose, which is to transform the universe into a perfect vision of the Builders. They finally arrived on Mars and terraformed the red planet, creating an atmosphere, vegetation and flash-shepherded years of evolution, in hopes of creating a "perfected" version of mankind. After Nihilo shot an Origin Bomb at Earth to accelerate the evolution of mankind, he affected almost two million people. The Avengers scrambled a response team, which was captured by Nihilo.

Gaseous Form: Abyss seems to be composed of a living gas. She is mostly invulnerable to physical harm, although she can still be harmed by unconventional attacks. She can solidify her form at will. Mind Alteration: Abyss possesses the ability to suggest ideas, and manipulate certain beings into acting the way she wants. Essence Reading: Abyss also seems to have some ability to analyze life forms, as she was able to tell that Thor was of a mythic origin simply by looking at him.

TRIVIA
Where Ex Nihli are creators/personifications of the potential for life, it could be construed that Abyss are representations of death - their natural antithesis. But given that Ex Nihil themselves are able to eliminate/prevent life and the fact the Abyss cannot be killed by conventional means, a more accurate assumption is that she is a representation of nothingness, void, the absence of life rather than the removal of it. Thus she too represents utter potential as all voids can be refilled. She may even be incapable of actually taking life as her primary means of attack and defense involve acting through others. She may be the only Abyss left in the entire Multiverse, as Hank Pym found none at the Last Refuge of the Builders.
