Powers and Abilities
Apex’s powers are, on a lesser scale, similar to those of Meridian himself. However, he is prone to sudden bouts of weakness, the cause of which remains a mystery to this day. In recent years it has been hypothesized that Apex’s power losses are akin to a terrestrial bout of epilepsy.
Apex projects a surly nature, possibly as a result of an inferiority complex regarding Meridian. He is rumored to have fathered a child with Warrior Woman, though the identity of that child has never been confirmed.
