History


Dr. Franklin Hall is a Canadian scientist working for S.H.I.E.L.D. Dr. Hall is a protected S.H.I.E.L.D. asset who was the teacher of Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons. Dr. Hall ends up abducted from a fully-protected convoy by a military unit who used some gravity weapon and taken to a compound in Malta owned by his former research partner Ian Quinn the head of Quinn Worldwide, who wants Hall to complete the gravity fields in Quinn's device powered by Gravitonium.

When Agent Coulson finds Hall, he is in the process of sending the gravity-control device and Quinn's house into the ocean, endangering the guests in Quinn's compound. Hall reveals to Coulson that he orchestrated his own kidnapping and states that the gravity element is too powerful for S.H.I.E.L.D. and Ian Quinn while proclaiming that he is "protecting mankind" and "making things right." After Coulson shoots the glass blocking the device, Hall falls towards the device where he is apparently consumed. The Gravitonium and the device it powers ends up locked up in S.H.I.E.L.D. custody where it is revealed that Hall is still alive inside the cluster of Gravitonium.

He emerged from the Gravitonium and took the mantle of the super villain Graviton.


Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Gravikinesis:: Graviton possesses the ability to mentally manipulate gravitons (that carry the attractive, gravitational force between atomic nuclei), enabling him to control gravity. He can surround any object or person including himself with gravitons and anti-gravitons (particles similar to gravitons but with opposite charge and spin), thus increasing or decreasing the Earth's pull of gravity upon it.
  • Flight: By decreasing the pull of gravity beneath him, he can fly at any speed or height at which he can still breathe. However by using his force field generation he can also breathe in space.
  • Movement Impairment and Graviton Attraction By increasing the pull of gravity beneath his opponents, he can pin them to the ground, having made them too heavy to move, or cause sufficient gravitational stress to impair the normal functioning of the human cardiovascular system. He can also cause an inanimate object (such as a 1-foot diameter rock) to radiate enough gravitons to give it its own gravitational field, able to attract nearby matter and energy.
  • Graviton Blast and Force Field Generation: By rapidly projecting gravitons in a cohesive beam, he can generate a force blast with a maximum concussive force equivalent to the primary shock wave of an explosion of 20,000 pounds of TNT. If concentrated enough Graviton can exert is power to level a whole city.He can also create a gravitational force field around him capable of protecting him from any concussive force up to and including a small nuclear weapon.
  • Graviton Manipulation: Graviton can exert his gravitational control over a maximum distance of 2.36 miles from his body. Thus, the maximum volume of matter he could influence at once is 55.0585 cubic miles. He once exercised this control by lifting into the air an inverted conic frustum-shaped land mass whose uppermost area was 4 miles across, and causing it to fly as though it were a dirigible. He can also erect a gravitational force-field of similar proportions. Graviton can perform as many as four separate tasks simultaneously. Graviton can use his power at maximum capacity for up to eight hours before mental fatigue significantly impairs his performance, and considerably longer (up to eighteen hours) if he conserves his energy during that time.

Abilities

Graviton is an experienced physicist.

Strength level

Graviton possesses the normal human strength of a man of his age, height, and build who engages in minimal regular exercise. Although he has never displayed this ability, he could probably increase his strength to superhuman levels by utilizing his gravikinetic powers.
