Place of Birth


First appearance




Andrew "Drew" Cororner was a store clerk in New York City who witnessed a group of robbers using experimental technology they had stolen from Stark Industries. He attempted to stop them, but was blasted with a ray from a prototype device. The robbers left, thinking he was dead. Cororner was actually alive, albeit his physiology had been altered. Discovering he had the ability to replicate (or obtain, as he would come to call it) the powers and abilities of others after appropriating the medical knowledge of the doctor helping him in the hospital, he donned a sweatshirt and goggles and tracked down and defeated the robbers. The device that gave him his powers was destroyed in battle. Dubbing himself "The Obtainer", he decided to fight crime after making a more appropriate costume.

S.H.I.E.L.D. Operative

At some point in his career, Cororner became an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., though only using this jurisdiction to attempt to scare criminals. He would also obtain an advanced costume from Mr. Fantastic with an artificial intelligence called SUIT.

Particle Accelerator Mission

Obtainer would be partnered with Deadpool on a mission to stop a particle accelerator that was being sabotaged by a group of rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. The two succeeded and, although not a fan of his personality, Cororner would find that the mercenary's powers and abilities were very useful, deciding to utilize them on a regular basis.

Enhanced Physiology: Cororner's powers come from his physiology being affected by a blast he was hit with produced from a prototype Stark Industries device that is unable to be replicated.

  • Power Absorption: Obtainer can replicate the powers, energies, knowledge, talents, and physical abilities (whether superhuman or not) of another human being (or members of any sentient alien races) through physical contact of his skin (or clothing that is in contact with his skin) with the skin of the other person (or clothing in contact with their skin). He is not limited to absorbing superhuman abilities: for example, he has absorbed the strength, agility, and sharp reflexes of an enhanced human. He can also absorb psionic abilities. In absorbing another person's memories Obtainer also gains the emotional responses connected to them. Obtainer can only absorb powers and abilities from living organic beings. He can possess the powers of several superhuman persons at once. No upper limit has yet been determined for the number of superhuman beings whose power he can maintain simultaneously, or for the amount of power that he can absorb. Obtainer can even absorb gross physical characteristics from a victim, allowing him to take on their physical appearance or a combination of several people's appearances. His physical appearance does not change when he absorbs powers and abilities from a normal looking human being unless he chooses. The victim's powers and abilities are not taken from them, rather, they are replicated within Cororner. Cororner can keep a copy of his victim's powers and abilities for as long as he chooses and can choose to place them into a "power database" from which he can choose any powers or abilities he can remember. Most often the process happens instantly when Cororner touches someone, but in certain instances where a being has possessed an extraordinary level of power they are able to resist him, and he may only share part of their power. Obtainer is able to absorb powers and abilities of several beings at once, though the experience can be confusing and disorienting for him, especially in his early years. He is also able to replicate certain powers or abilities but only if he is aware of what the person can do. If he is not aware, then he will just "obtain" all of their powers and abilities. Robotic beings are not immune to his power. If he were to absorb the powers and abilities of a robot, then he would have the ability to make a robotic exoskeleton appear around his body, giving him the robot's powers, but only if the robot's metal body provided any powers, such as Ultron's durability. Powerful enough beings can withstand his touch. Obtainer's power has grown over time, allowing him to "obtain" more powers as well as more powerful ones.

Deadpool Powers: Cororner has decided to keep the powers of Deadpool on a regular basis.

  • Regenerative Healing Factor: He possesses a superhuman healing factor that allows him to regenerate damaged or destroyed bodily tissue with far greater speed and efficiency than an ordinary human. He is able to heal from injuries such as slashes, puncture wounds, bullet wounds, beheading, and severe burns within moments. His healing factor is significantly more powerful than Wolverine's as he can regrow missing limbs and organs. His head or any other limb can be reattached using this ability. Even after being beheaded, he can still move his body normally. Unlike Wolverine's natural healing factor, Obtainer's is mentally driven to a partial extent.
    • Foreign Chemical Resistance: His body is highly resistant to most drugs and toxins. For example, it is extremely difficult, though not impossible, for him to become intoxicated. He can, momentarily, be affected by certain drugs (tranquilizers) if exposed to a large enough dosage.
    • Disease Immunity: The unique regenerative qualities of his healing factor also extend to his immune system; he is immune to all diseases, infections, disorders, imperfection, and resistant to elemental extremes.
    • Immortality: His healing factor provides him with an endless lifespan by halting the aging process.
    • Telepathic Immunity: The healing factor causes his brain to be in a constant state of flux and regeneration, rendering him immune to psychics. He is even immune to the Ghost Rider's penance stare.
    • Possession Resistance: Similar to the telepathic immunity, he is able to remain in control of himself while supernatural beings are trying to take control of him. No one can touch his soul.


Medical Knowledge: The very first "obtainment" Cororner ever made was unintentionally obtaining the medical knowledge of the physician treating the injuries he sustained when he gained his powers in the first place. To this day, he still remembers everything he learned, given the importance of that day and the instability of his powers at the time.

Billiards Expertise: The doctor who treated Cororner was also a skilled billiards player in his spare time, meaning that the Obtainer is as well.

Good Memory: The powers Cororner can utilize greatly depend on what he can remember and so to best utilize them, he has trained his memory with help from SUIT and the brain regeneration he has obtained from Deadpool.

Deadpool Abilities: Cororner has decided to keep the abilities of Deadpool as well.

  • Master Martial Artist: He is an extraordinary hand-to-hand combatant and is a master in multiple unarmed combat techniques. He is among the most skilled fighters in the Marvel universe, although in some fights it has been attributed to him being unpredictable.
  • Master Assassin: He is a master of assassination techniques, espionage methods, covert operations, infiltration methods, escape artistry, marksmanship, and is highly skilled with many bladed weapons and a number of other weapons including firearms.
  • Multilingual: He is fluent in Spanish, Japanese, German, Russian, and Esperanto.
  • Medium Awareness: He is aware that he is a fictional comic book character, allowing him to break the fourth wall.

Strength level

Cororner engages in moderate regular exercise. He is capable of "obtaining" the strength of almost anyone, even up to the Hulk and possibly stronger.


Weakness Inheritance: When Obtainer "obtains" certain powers, he may "inherit" weaknesses that come with the powers, such as Wolverine's weakness to loud noises.

Irresponsibility: Obtainer can be very irresponsible with his powers. Tony Stark once said to him: "The only reason you can't replace every hero on Earth is because you'd sooner juggle cars then throw them at villains."


Equipment: Obtainer Suit: Obtainer wears a tactical full-body suit made of unstable molecules given to him by Reed Richards. It is immune to the powers of the Fantastic Four, Avengers, X-Men, and "pretty much anything else [he] can think of". This includes gunshots, puncture wounds, burns, exposure to space, explosives, and energy blasts as well as falls from great heights and direct blows from the Hulk. The suit's goggles provide telescopic vision, omni-directional scanning, plasma blasts capable of melting through steel, and a camera. The gloves have grappling lines within them. The suit contains an artificial intelligence designed by Richards called SUIT (Supervisor, Upgrade, Intelligent Technology), which provides Cororner with his own vitals, a database of powers and abilities he has collected and from whom, the powers and abilities of those in a five-mile radius, and S.H.I.E.L.D. databases.

Transportation: S.H.I.E.L.D. transportation
Weapons: None known.
