Occulus is a mutant of his species who possessed the ability to tap as a source of energy the crystals surrounding his planet, the gems of the Inniverse, which granted him a variety of energy powers.
Enhanced Abilities: Occulus has enhanced strength, agility and endurance.
Body Armour: Occulus wore body armour composed of alien materials, designed by the Gem Guild.
Power Gem: Occulus right eye has been replaced by a power-gem, he can form force fields, fire beams of heat, light, and concussive force from his gem eye, levitate, and detect various forms of energy. He also has the ability to perceive otherwise invisible objects through this yellow gem-eye. After absorbing energy from Franklin Richards he augmented his powers. With his powers enhanced, he could form energy constructs and force fields, fly at subsonic speeds by manipulating anti-gravitons, fire more powerful beams of heat, light, and concussive force from his hands, and had the ability to increase his own strength and durability to superhuman levels.
The man known only as Occulus lived in a dimensional plane existing between the subatomic particles of all matter, this place was called the Inniverse. He ruled an unnamed planet, that had survived a devastating war that completely destroyed its sister planet. The battle left crystal like debris that now circle the remaining planet. The planet continued to be hostile and at war. It was later discovered that certain people were born with an innate ability to use the crystals that fell from the sky as a power source. The Gem Guild was formed to train and nurture these special few.
The influence of the Guild grew until it ruled this forsaken world with ruthless abandon. While searching for those persons with the special gift to use the crystals, a pair of orphans was tested and one brother was spirited away by the Guild. The other brother, who would later be called Wild Blood, was discarded and separated from his family and forced to live as a daring thief. The other brother would be pampered by the Guild and influenced by the evil Dangor. Seeking to advance his powers the other brother plucked out his right eye and replaced it with a yellow crystal, hoping to achieve gem supremacy. This was the beginning of the age of Occulus.
