Franklin Hall was a scientist studying Gravitonium and what it could do. Until he was encased in it by S.H.I.E.L.D and imprisoned. He was later freed by his old friend Ian Quinn after attempting to harness the Gravitonium's power. Hall later took the mantle of Graviton and caused mass destruction due to his powers and was defeated by the Avengers. After this M.O.D.O.K approached Hall about a job as one of AIM's top scientists, Hall agreed and was freed from his prison.
Powers and Abilities Edit
- Gravikinesis:: Graviton possesses the ability to mentally manipulate gravitons (that carry the attractive, gravitational force between atomic nuclei), enabling him to control gravity. He can surround any object or person including himself with gravitons and anti-gravitons (particles similar to gravitons but with opposite charge and spin), thus increasing or decreasing the Earth's pull of gravity upon it.
- Flight: By decreasing the pull of gravity beneath him, he can fly at any speed or height at which he can still breathe. However by using his force field generation he can also breathe in space.
- Movement Impairment and Graviton Attraction By increasing the pull of gravity beneath his opponents, he can pin them to the ground, having made them too heavy to move, or cause sufficient gravitational stress to impair the normal functioning of the human cardiovascular system. He can also cause an inanimate object (such as a 1-foot diameter rock) to radiate enough gravitons to give it its own gravitational field, able to attract nearby matter and energy.
- Graviton Blast and Force Field Generation: By rapidly projecting gravitons in a cohesive beam, he can generate a force blast with a maximum concussive force equivalent to the primary shock wave of an explosion of 20,000 pounds of TNT. If concentrated enough Graviton can exert is power to level a whole city.He can also create a gravitational force field around him capable of protecting him from any concussive force up to and including a small nuclear weapon
