    Micromax is a British mutant whom was recruited by the British intelligence agency MI6. After his formal training to become a secret service agent, he worked on a number of missions. He first encountered the British mutant team known as Excalibur while on a mission for the secret service.


    Micromax was created by writer/artist Alan Davis and first appeared in Excalibur issue 44 (1991). According to Alan Davis, Micromax was slated to become the newest member of the Excalibur team, but plans never materialized since Alan Davis left the book before he could bring him into the team.

    Micromax can increase or decrease his size and mass at will. Apparently he can also re-arrange it a little, as he commonly enhances his appearance and physique; when unconscious, he reverts to a plain, slightly flabby, middle-aged man with a receding hairline. If he shrinks too quickly it can cause him to faint.
