History


Origin

Growing up largely unaware of his family's illegal gun-smuggling syndicate, young Julio Esteban Richter saw many hardships. After spending some time in jail with his father, Julio was forced to watch his father's murder during an arms deal gone bad. When his mutant seismic powers manifest, Julio accidentally destroyed three city blocks. This brought Julio to the attention of an anti-mutant organization, who kidnapped him. Dubbing him "Rictor", they explained to him his mutation, tortured him and attempted to force Rictor into using his seismic powers to destroy San Francisco, while claiming to be allied with the X-Men. Thankfully, Rictor was saved by Shatterstar.

Coming Out

The pair started living together as best friends but one night after clubbing, the two embraced one another and finally shared a kiss.

Rictor and Shatterstar began a steady romantic relationship after Shatterstar's return though not without its difficulties. Rictor, having finally come to terms with his sexual identity, wanted a stable monogamous relationship with Shatterstar. Shatterstar, on the other hand, found himself interested in a more open relationships which would allow him to explore other sexual possibilities. The two resolved that they would work things out, and proceeded to make up both emotionally and physically.


Powers and Abilities

Powers

Rictor is a mutant whose powers include:

  • Seismic Energy Manipulation: Rictor is capable of generating and releasing seismic energy and tremendously powerful waves of vibrations in any object he came into physical contact with, the vibrations starting in his body, and then emanating outwards, mostly through his fingers, causing objects to shatter or crumble and also using it to create earthquakes, shock-waves or otherwise transport earth matter. When used against objects with a larger surface, the effects were much like an earthquake. The extent of Rictor's power was never fully explored. His powers appeared to affect organic objects in much the same way as inorganic ones.
    • Seismic Energy Immunity: Rictor is immune to the harmful effects of the vibrations he created.
    • Geo Connectivity: Like Storm, Rictor's mutant powers have created a psychic/empathic bond between himself and the primal life force of Earth's biosphere.
  • Power and Telepathic Immunity
