First Appearance

The being known as Quantum was an alien soldier who was elected by his planet's government (the "ruling elite") to serve as subjects in an experiment with Earth's sun, whose energy reacted with the Dakkamite physiology to produce super-enhanced results. As part of the experiment, Quantum, with others, were placed in incubators and set to orbit the Earth's sun. Upon awakening, Quantum realized he was alone, and spent his time searching for what happened to his comrades, whom he called "the Elect.".

The search led Quantum to answer a call to join the villain Graviton who wanted to rule the world. They were stopped by the West Coast Avengers.

Later, Quasar happened upon Quantum when investigating extraterrestrial activity on Earth. They both encountered the pacifist alien known as Aquarian, and it was revealed that Aquarian is also a Dakkamite, but from the renegade house of Zeneg. During a battle with Quasar, Quantum was stuck in an intangible state, and rather than accept help from Aquarian, Quantum fled.

He was captured by the enigmatic alien, the Stranger, and were imprisoned in the Stranger's Labworld for the alien to study him. He remained their until freed by Overmind. [2]


Quantum's power derives from the "strong force"-- the attraction between particles in an atom's nucleus. This gives him partial invulnerability, unearthly super strength, as well as the ability to create duplicates of himself by actualizing the potential positions of his atoms in a nearby location. He can also fly and teleport for the same reasons.
