Ultimax was at one time Dr. Richard Hawker working on "Project
Photon" for CR-Tech, he was trying to infuse light into human cells.
This of course had applications like, search and rescue for mines, and
biological safety markers for people out at night. However CR-Tech was
planning to do more than just that. They were researching applications
of human photon emission, and bio laser projection. When Dr. Hawker
realized that CR-Tech had no interest in a peaceful use for his work
he planned to defect. However at that point CR-Tech decided that Dr.
Hawker had out-lived his usefulness. The night that Richard was about
to defect adn leave the lab exploded. Many though that Dr. Hawker, who
had been in the only lab occupant, died. However Dr. Hawker had actually
been infused with photons and as a result became a being of pure living
light. Naming himself Ultimax he joined with Legion Extreme in hopes
to exposed CR-Tech for what they really are.
Ultimax is composed of solid living light, as such most physical attacks
pass right though him, and energy based attacks sort of deflect off
him. His body can be damaged though, by a reflective surface, although
he can reconciliate after a time, it is painful. To elude this problem
Ultimax wears a specially tailored molecular containment suit. Among
other powers that Ultimax has is the ability to fly by means of projecting
Photons to propel himself, and the ability to solidify or intangify
his body. He also can create focused beams of light which are much akin
to a powerful laser. Ultimax may also absorb light and photons to increase
his powers, making himself superhumanly strong and agile. Ultimax also
can intensify or decrease the amount of light he generates from his
actual body making him blindingly bright, or a dull throbbing pulse.
Ultimax wears a molecular containment suit which offers him some protection
against normal attacks, and attacks designed specifically to injure
him. This also allows him a varying degree of control over his powers
