The Answer’s powers are the answer to whatever he needs at the time. At rest, he may not demonstrate any superhuman powers. However, in the middle of a fight, struggle, etc., he will develop whatever abilities he needs at the time (USUALLY only one or two powers at a time): superhuman strength, speed, durability, flight, formation of force fields, heightened senses, etc.
Genius: The Answer is highly intelligent and able to mentally determine the answer to a number of problems, without the use of his powers.
Costume: The Answer’s s costume is specially designed so as to be virtually frictionless.
The Answer first came to work for the father and son team of Wilson and Richard Fisk when they controlled the Las Vegas division of HYDRA . He was their top hit man, but he also had an angle, or an answer, to any problem.
At some point, he volunteered to be the guinea pig for Fisk's attempt to grant superhuman powers. The experiment seemed to fail, and Nicholson was compensated. However, while being attacked by assassins he developed super strength and invulnerability, which faded over time. He later generated flight to escape an explosion. With a few other incidents, he began to realize that he now literally had the answer to any situation, he had the power to adapt to any situation.
