Enhanced Abilities: Mercurio has super human strength, endurance and durability.
Thermokinesis: As a native of the planet Gramos, Mercurio possesses the ability to generate intense heat, usually in the form of a fireball or wall of flame. As a result of his "accident", Mercurio can now emit intense cold from the left side of his body. He is also able to use both abilities simultaneously.
Flight: Mercurio can can fly by harnessing anti-gravitons (particles that repel gravitions, the smallest particles that contain a gravitational force) at a maximum speed of 40 miles per hour.
On the opposite side of Earth from the Milky Way galaxy, the world of Gramos had reached the height of technology and culture. However, a freak space-warp opened near Gramos, causing the polarity of their world to be inexplicably altered such that its atmosphere transformed, admitting only the extremes of the electromagnetic wavelength. Deprived of ordinary life-sustaining light, many Gramosians began to go mad and then die.
In a bid to save Gramos, Mercurio was chosen to project his consciousness across the galaxy to Earth, where he took control of a wealthy landlord named Karl Sarron and used his resources to build a device to siphon off Earth's electromagnetic field. Mercurio also detected strange energies coming from the offices of Dr. Donald Blake, the alter-ego of the thunder god Thor. Witnessing a transformation from Blake to Thor, Mercurio siphoned off some of the magical energy in an attempt to transport his body across space to Earth. The process was only partially successful as the right side of Mercurio's body was turned red and his normal fire-generating ability was reverted to ice (on the left side only). Mercurio then battled Thor but was quickly defeated.
