Body Transformation (Self): Angler's partially transformed body is able to move at will partially or totally through hyper-space, enabling him to pass through solid matter at will, teleport short distances, and separate his form at will to avoid attack. His right hand is a two-pronged fork. It is composed of a dense form of crystalline matter and tapers to points that are only atoms thick; this enables it to slice through virtually all forms of matter and energy. After being completely transformed he grew to a height of approximately 12-15 feet. His whole body was composed of this dense crystalline material, which proved highly resistant to injury. Both hands were formed into two-pronged forks, and he could still phase into hyper-space at will.
The man who would become the Angler was originally a mercenary employed by Roxxon Oil Company's Nth Command, assigned to locate extra-dimensional energy sources. Nth Command also sought to banish all super-heroes extra-dimensionally to prevent their continued interference. His Nth Projector malfunctioned, causing him to fall through a rift into some abstract dimension. There he encountered a member of the extra-terrestrial race known as the Geometers, who was attempting to reshape all of reality to conform to his idea of geometric perfection. The commando warped away, but the Geometer blasted him with his Lathe of Perfection, partially transforming him into an angular being.
