Ray Crisp (Berzerker)


Berzerker's power is fierce and so is he. Much like Roberto (Sunspot), he is quick to take offense. He refuses to admit when he's wrong, and will never be first to back down. He's got a wild streak that can be fun, but has a real dangerous edge to it. Often seen goofing off with Bobby, if he’s not blowing something up, he’s thinking of new, inventive ways to blow it up anyway.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Berzerker's mutant powers allow him to generate, absorb, and control electrical energy. He can generate bolts of electricity ranging from small shocks to destructive lightning bolts. Berzerker can overload electrical systems and cause them to explode as seen in the episode Day Of Recovery when he blew the engines of two police cars. Berzerker can absorb and redirect massive amounts of electrical energy as seen in Ascension, Part 2 when he absorbed multiple lightning strikes from Storm and redirected them against her.

Berzerker's powers cannot be used when he is wet. In Ascension, Part 2 Storm created rain and caused Berzerker to short out, shock himself and fall to the ground.

Early LifeEdit

Due to his orange bangs in his hair that never lie flat, Berzerker was a former Morlock before he enrolled in the Institute and became a member of the New Mutants, a younger generation of mutants who were to eventually help and possibly replace the X-Men.
