REAL NAME: Michael Pointer
1st APPEARANCE: New Avengers #17 (2006)
BIO: Former Alaskan postal worker Michael Pointer is a mutant with the ability to absorb the energy, abilities, and even personalities of other mutants. Inexperience with his powers led to Michael being tormented and confused at times by the personalities he'd absorbed.
STATUS: Following M-Day, Omega inadvertently became the focal point of all the energy the Scarlet Witch had stripped from the world's mutants, becoming an entity known as The Collective. He rampaged across the globe and murdered thousands, including the members of Alpha Flight. Now, freed of the Collective's influence, Omega is desperate to atone for those deaths.
