Powers: Vibraxas can generate vibrations which manifest in a number of ways; Destructive shockwaves, subtle Frequency matching and phasing of him self and others through solid objects.  These powers are not natural thus his body has no natural immunity to them. He must wear a protective harness at all times to regulate his powers or he could shatter his own bones.


Seeking to make an alternate power source for their country beyond the Vibranium Mound which had become the basis of its society, wakandan scientists lead by A’Kane developed the Vibrasurge project. The new energy source Vibrasurge proved highly unstable however and the resulting explosion killed many and mutated others into a single monstrous entity which called itself the Vibravore. This creature was cast into an alternate reality due to its powers. N’Kano found himself mutated from the explosion and buried in the wreckage. His powers were also unstable and when he instinctively lashed out with his powers he not only freed himself but shattered his own bones. The Black Panther outfitted him with a regulator harness to help him use his powers as he recovered. After recovering he traveled with the Black Panther to America in hopes that the Fantastic Four could aid him in the use of his powers. Their arrival was just in time as they aided the team in fighting off Dark Raider who was an alternate version of Reed Richards. His new allies Psi Lord, Huntara and Devlor aided him in defeating Klaw and under the orders of the Black Panther they formed Fantastic Force funded by the Black Panther. After many battles their ranks expanded to include Black Panther, She Hulk and the Human Torch. He briefly lost control of his powers and killed a man in self defense though he was later pardoned. When the Vibrasurge project was reopened he opposed immediately and came into conflict with the newly returned Vibravore who he defeated and freed the people therein. This all culminated with financial backing of Fantastic Force stopped and him leaving Wakanda after his team disbanded. In America he lost control of his powers again and returned to Wakanda for treatment. He fell in love with Chante Brown/Queen Divine Justice who was one of the Dora Milaje. When Chante was kidnapped by the Man Ape he rushed to rescue her only to learn she was the princess of the white Gorilla Cult called the Jabari. He was instrumental in stopping civil war from erupting between the Jabari and the Black Panther’s people when he and Chante called a truce. His current whereabouts are unknown.
