BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Lucas Bishop was born on December 31, 1980 in New York City, where he and his sister Shard were raised by their parents. Bishop played basketball in high school. When Lucas was around the age of seventeen, his father, who was a NYC cop, was killed by a robber. Lucas then dedicated his life to becoming a cop in honor of his father, even after his latent Mutant abilities awakened.


NYPDEdit

"You're scum... you hear me."
―Bishop[src]

After High School, Bishop joined the New York Police Academy, a few years later Bishop became a NYPD Detective. In some of his first investigations he found and killed the man responsible for his father's murder and helped bust some of The Kingpin's business associates.

Meeting the X-MenEdit

"Heard you guys could use a helping hand. I figure I should do whatever I can to help."
―Lucas Bishop[src]





Powers and AbilitiesEdit

PowersEdit

Energy Absorption Bishop was a mutant who can absorb most types of energy directed toward him. He can then rechannel it through his body for concussive blasts or in the same form that was absorbed but with twice the force/power, including Storm's weather effects. This rechanneled energy was apparently able to damage beings normally immune to their own powers. The nature of his powers makes it difficult to damage him with energy-based attacks, while also enabling him to work well with any energy-using teammates. Bishop can also store absorbed energy within his personal reserves, whereupon the energy increases his strength and recuperative abilities, as well as affording him a measure of invulnerability. The upper limits of his ability to enhance his own physical abilities with absorbed energy was not exactly known but was well into the level of being super human.

AbilitiesEdit

  • Trained Combatant: Bishop was a trained police officer, skilled in the homicide branch. Bishop has armed and unarmed combat training which has made him a devastating unarmed combatant, and a superb marksman with firearms, both heavy duty military and conventional guns.

WeaknessesEdit

  • Some energy types are more difficult to absorb than others. Bishop can be overloaded by trying to absorb too much energy.
  • Unlike Sebastian Shaw, Bishop was seemingly unable to absorb energy from inertial impacts such as hitting walls. This did not mean he was incapable of absorbing kinetic energy. Kinetic effects such as an exploding card from Gambit were absorbable. Whether it was possible for him to increase this ability in time with practice was unknown.
