Krakoa possesses an instinct-based hivemind comprised of the lifeforms that formed it. It can create moving, semi-humanoid and animal forms of various sizes out of its component earth. Its largest humanoid form possessed superhuman strength (lifting approximately 100 tons). It feeds on mutant energy, and drains that energy quickly, often rendering mutants powerless, and though it often traps beings using tentacle-like vegetation growth, it can feed off this energy as long as the being remains on the island. Krakoa can block the powers of telepaths trying to communicate with those on the island, and it can survive unaided in space.
Krakoa was originally a very small island in the Pacific Ocean that was located close to some nuclear bomb test sites. The radiation somehow mutated the island's ecosystem into a hive-mind entity, which feeds on the energy sources of mutantkind.
