Victor Borkowski was born and raised in Fairbury, Illinois, he lived a normal life despite his reptilian features, a result of his being a mutant. The close-knit community accepted the boy for who he was until anti-mutant sentiment began to spread. For his own safety, his parents sent him to the Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters where he quickly excelled academically, which led him to be part of the New Mutants.
Powers and Abilities
Anole is a mutant with reptilian-like physiology including:
- Scaly Skin
- Enhanced Agility: Anole's natural agility, balance, and coordination are enhanced to increased levels, allowing him to perform feats that those of normal agility would find incredibly hard to do.
- Enhanced Speed: Capable of moving and running slightly faster than a normal human, but he is not on par with powered speedsters.
- Enhanced Reflexes: He has the reaction time that is roughly half of that of normal base-line human's.
- Enhanced Strength: Anole possesses superhuman strength enabling him to lift weights to, as of yet, unmeasured levels. Beast affirmed that any new limb that will regrow on Anole, it will be gifted with super strength exactly as in his right arm.
- Enhanced Stamina: Anole's muscles produce far less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the muscles of an average human. He can exert himself at peak capacity for several hours before fatigue impairs him.
- Long, Elastic, Sticky, Prehensile, Forked Tongue: Anole has an incredibly long tongue (apparently longer than his own body length) which he is capable of rapidly and abruptly extending out of the mouth. The tongue has a sticky tip on the end, which serves to catch anything that he would otherwise never be able to reach.
- Wallcrawling: Similar to Spider-Man, Anole can climb vertically up walls and hang from ceilings from pads on his hands and feet.
- Camouflage: Anole possesses superhuman ability to alter his skin color and appearance enabling him to copy the pattern of any surface he stands against.
- Razor Sharp Spikes & Claws: As part of his physical mutation, Anole has spikes that appear on his scalp. His regrown arm also has razor sharp claws allowing for greater battle prowess
- Reptilian Regenerative properties: Anole has a regenerative ability that can grow replacement limbs, though the full extent of this power remains unclear. After having his right arm amputated, Anole grew a larger scalier arm in its place.
He was stated to be a Low Threat by the O*N*E.
