Statistical information
"If they want a show ah'll give 'em one they'll never forget!!"

Samuel Zachary "Sam" Guthrie (also known as Cannonball) was a member of the X-Men, and the brother of Paige, Jay, Melody, Jeb, Joelle, Elizabeth, Lewis, Cissie and Josie Guthrie.


Early life

Samuel Zachery Guthrie was the second eldest son (though only by two minutes) of a large family from Long Island, New York. At sixteen, Sam and his twin brother Josh would help out the family by working at their father's convenience store, until Sam discovered his mutant ability, after smashing through a window. This incident led to Sam being found by Professor Charles Xavier, founder of the X-Men, and asked he and his brother Josh who had developed a mutation of his own to join his New Mutants. And in the summer of 2006, Sam, Josh and Paige left their family to join the team.

Powers and Abilities


Thermo-Chemical Energy Field Propulsion: Cannonball possessed the ability to bodily generate thermo-chemical energy and release it from his skin. This energy was used as thrust to cause his body to be propelled through the air, like his namesake, at great heights and speeds with considerable maneuverability. He could control his speed and direction through sheer act of will. At first he could only release this energy from his feet, but now he can fire it from almost any part of his body, to a wide variety of effects.

  • Blast Field: This energy also manifested itself as an impenetrable and virtually indestructible “blast field”. He could use this blast-field to function as a personal shield or extending it to encompass others, shape the field around another person to imprison them, or absorb outside kinetic impact into his own energy supply and then re-channel it to increase the bludgeoning power of his blows or create explosive shock waves upon impact.
  • Superhuman Durability: While using his abilities, Sam possessed superhuman durability due to the energy field that formed around his body.
