Ahmet Abdol's origin is the same as that of his Earth-616 counterpart.
The Living Pharaoh entered the Temple of Khonshu alongside his followers with the intent to steal the Ankh of Khonshu to increase his power to monolithic levels. Moon Knight managed to impede his progress, but ultimately failed to prevent him from obtaining the Ankh. With its power, Moon Knight was no longer a match for him, but with the help of Havok he was able to defeat him, and turn Abdol and his followers over to the local authorities.
Powers and Abilities
Cosmic Energy Manipulation: As the Living Monolith he had the ability to emit cosmic energy as blasts of concussive force from his eyes. Abdol could only utilize his mutant powers and transform into the Living Monolith only when cosmic radiation was channeled into his body through a focusing medium, such as when cosmic radiation was prevented from reaching his counterpart, Havok.
Energy Absorption: The Living Monolith has been genetically altered by splicing his own mutant genes with those of the mutant X-Man Havok. This modification allows him to absorb large amounts of cosmic radiation - although as Havok absorbs the same radiation, the Living Monolith's powers can be limited when Havok absorbs background radiation (or other suitable energy sources) that might otherwise be used to fuel the Living Monolith.
- Energy Blast: Although Havok projects absorbed radiation as energy blasts, the Living Monolith had a broader range of powers. He is able to project energy as intense heat, a concussive force, or sonic vibrations. Stored energy also affects his physical form - increasing his size, mass, strength, and resistance to injury, and granting him an indefinite lifespan. Although there appears to be no clear upper limit to the amount of power he can absorb, it is also possible to overload his powers.
Abdol has a gifted intellect, and is an expert archaeologist and Egyptologist, with a Ph.D. in archaeology. He is also an advanced student of genealogy, human mutation, and the effects of cosmic radiation.
Equipment: As the Living Monolith, Abdol wore body armor of unknown materials.
Transportation: None known.
Weapons: As the Living Pharaoh, he briefly wielded a hand-held ankh capable of projecting bursts of concussive force. The Pharaoh was forced to rely on this ankh as an amplifier whenever his powers were waning. He also used hypnotic gems to pacify opponents.
