Powers:
 
Cybernetics: The full extent of Ahab's cybernetic powers have yet to be revealed. Presumably, his systems include enhanced strength, endurance, reflexes and senses. He is also immune to telepathic intrusion and attack.
Harpoon: Ahab can generate powerful energy harpoons that are formed from, and attached to, his own life force. Anyone who attempts to grab a harpoon gets burned. Each harpoon is keyed to its target's genetic structure, and cannot be moved or deflected by energy; it only stops when it strikes its target, or a close blood relative thereof. A hit from one of these harpoons can kill or seriously injure the target. A person who survives finds their neural pathways burned out and unable to move.
Technology: Ahab's technology allows him to mark, clothe, and mentally control his legion of mutant Hounds.
 
Origins:
 
Dr. Rory Campbell was a psychologist whose history has by and large yet to be revealed, although he had known the mutant researcher Moira MacTaggart in the past. Recently, Campbell accepted a position as Moira's assistant at Muir Island, at the same time that the mutant hero team Excalibur was stationed there. It was here that he discovered the existence of an alternate reality in which he became the mutant hunting Ahab, creating and leading hordes of mutant trackers called "Hounds." Ahabís body was rebuilt cybernetically after he was critically injured during the escape of his best hound, Rachel Summers, into the past. Once rebuilt, he pursued her back to the present Earth.
