Adrian Corbo (Earth-616)

Detailed Information of Superhero

Adrian Corbo (Earth-616)

Adrian is one of the two Corbo brothers. They are maternal half-brothers, from the same mother but different fathers. Adrian and his older half-brother Jared were raised in the Hull House orphanage, which was actually a facility operated by the Canadian government's secretive agency Department H. There they met Eugene Judd, who was working at the orphanage. Adrian once had a peculiar flashback to his childhood in Hull House. In the flashback a very young Adrian was holding his teddy bear and calling to Beatrice de la Salle for help. There was a monster with red eyes towering over him. The monster threatened to eat his eyes. Adrian connected this memory with the feeling of being cornered and unable to get away from someone he trusts.

Superhero Details

REALITY
Earth 616
POWERS
Limited Metal Mimicry: Flex was a mutant who could "flex" his limbs into thin sheets of organic metal, which were highly resistant to physical damage. Normally he transformed his hands into sharp long blades, but could also flex his leg into a blade preventing someone to grab him. It was relatively thin, but by doing so he had the strength to send over 15 people into the air. Adrian's metal blades were shown to cut through metal with ease and block laser and gunfire, but the overall strength and durability of his organic metal was never stated. It may have been possible that he could transform his entire body into this substance

TRIVIA
The identity of the monster in Adrian Corbo's flashback is unclear, though it is implied that the monster was someone who the child trusted. The form of the monster was not humanoid, though it could speak. While Adrian Corbo's monster has very few lines of dialogue, they still form a distinctive pattern: "Help you she can't, young thing! Sure of that I am. Mmmm pretty eyes you have. Eat them I could". This seems to be an inverted syntax, where lines do not follow traditional sentence patterns.
