Enhanced Abilities: Quantum has upper level superhuman strength and endurance.
Strong Force: Quantum's power derives from the "strong force" the attraction between particles in an atom's nucleus. This gives him partial invulnerability, as well as the ability to create duplicates of himself by actualising the potential positions of his atoms in a nearby location. He can also fly and teleport for the same reasons.
The being known as Quantum was an alien soldier who was elected by his planet's government (the "ruling elite") to serve as subjects in an experiment with Earth's sun, whose energy reacted with the Dakkamite physiology to produce super-enhanced results. As part of the experiment, Quantum, with others, were placed in incubators and set to orbit the Earth's sun. Upon awakening, Quantum realized he was alone, and spent his time searching for what happened to his comrades, whom he called "the Elect.".
The search led Quantum to answer a call to join the villain Graviton who wanted to rule the world.
