History of character is unknown.
Powers and Abilities
- Possession he has the ability to possess other living creatures. While doing this, he maintains full control over his selected target, and can even speak through them. A host body gifted with a particularly willful spirit however, has been known to exorcise Deadman's presence from their form. Typically whenever Deadman abandons a host form, they maintain no knowledge or memory of their actions while possessed. Deadman can only possess one human being at a time. Prolonged attachment to a specific host places Deadman at risk of a permanent bonding (the nature of which has been known to vary from time to time).
- Invisibility he cannot be visibly perceived by other human beings. This is an automatic ability, and one that Deadman has no control over. Beings gifted with supernatural prowess (Madame Xanadu for example), may be able to see Deadman's true form.
- Intangibility he can pass through anything and everything. This is an automatic ability, and one that Deadman has no control over.
- Flight or Spirit Travel: he possesses the ability to "fly" between the lands of the living and the lands of the dead. When possessing a human form however, Deadman is limited by whatever physical restrictions apply to the host body.
- Knowledge of the Magic World
- Master Gymnast: Deadman is a professional acrobat and gymnast.
- Deadman possesses the physical strength level of whomever he is possessing at any given moment.
Body Possession: the health and nature of whichever host body he is possessing at the moment may place certain physical limitations on this ability. If Deadman possesses the body of an out of shape, middle-aged man, he will not be able to tumble as dexterously as he would were he in possession of a more athletic specimen.
Equipment: None known.
- Self-powered spiritual flight. Deadman has also been known to play "hopscotch" with physical bodies, leaping from one form to the next in rapid succession.
