Specter losing his powers


Specter was one of the many mutants to loose their powers on M-Day.[5][6] The depowered students of the Xavier Institute were asked to leave the school, but the bus carrying several depowered students was attacked by one of William Stryker's Purifiers.[7] Dallas; however, departed from the Institute early, and is currently living with his grandparents.[citation needed]


Currently none. Specter was a mutant, but lost his mutant powers due to the effects of M-Day.

  • A boy with short blond hair much like Dallas's was seen on the bus that was blown up by William Stryker and his followers. However, he has been stated to be alive during interviews with Chris Yost.
