Australian teenager with gorilla-like strength and agility. He was tricked by Enthralla into fighting J2 before seeing the truth and helping him and the rest of the X-People defeat Enthralla. He has tried to match fighting styles with both Wild Thing and the Beast but has been able to fight either one of them. During the final battle between Seth and Spider-Girl, he was among several heroes to defeat the God of death during the final battle. Simian was also one of several heroes trying to fight off Galactus during his invasion of Earth.
Simian has nearly identical powers to that of the Beasts original mutant powers in the mainstream Marvel continuity.
