History


Hellfire Club

Samuel Zachery Guthrie was the eldest son of a large farming Kentucky family. Sam attempted to help out his family by working in a coal mine after his father had died there inhaling coal dust. Right on his first day, Sam and his father's friend, Lewis, were trapped in a cave-in. In his panic, Sam manifested his mutant blasting powers which allowed him and Lewis to escape the collapse.

While studying at college and working at Graymalkin Industries he was approached by Daimon Hellstrom, who invited him to join the Hellfire Club in New York. The young man agreed, led by his impulses.

X-Men

After finding out about the Inner Circle's true goals, he left the club and found himself in Utopia Island, where some Utopia Division members told him he should visit Professor X. The X-Men leader offered him a spot in the team, which he accepted.


Powers and Abilities

Powers

Cannonball is a mutant.

Thermo-Chemical Energy Field Propulsion: Cannonball possesses the ability to bodily generate thermo-chemical energy and release it from his skin. This energy is used as thrust to cause his body to be propelled through the air, like his namesake, at great heights and speeds with considerable maneuverability. He can control his speed and direction through sheer act of will. At first he could only release this energy from his feet, but now he can fire it from almost any part of his body, to a wide variety of effects.

  • Blast Field: This energy also manifests itself as an impenetrable and virtually indestructible “blast field”. He can use this blast-field to function as a personal shield or extending it to encompass others, shape the field around another person to imprison them, or absorb outside kinetic impact into his own energy supply and then re-channel it to increase the bludgeoning power of his blows or create explosive shock waves upon impact.
  • Superhuman Durability: When he is using his superhuman powers, Cannonball possesses superhuman durability due to the energy field that forms around his body.

External

It has been theorized that Cannonball may be one of the Externals, and therefore immortal (although evidence for this is somewhat questionable).

Abilities

None known.

Strength level

Cannonball possesses the normal human strength of a young man of his age, height, and build who engages in moderate regular exercise. However, when he uses his powers to apply thrust beneath him, the force thus generated enables him to bear aloft over a ton of weight in addition to his own.

Weaknesses
