And if there ‘s one thing I learned, it ‘s this : The real monster in your life does n’t do loudly rants in loud costumes. He does n’t gloat or give speeches. The actual monster stays quieten. Keeps his head down. He ‘s got a reputation to think about. He ‘s got a diagnose. possibly you know it .Quote2.png

Rick Jones[src]


This is an abridged version of Richard Jones’ history. For a complete history see Richard Jones’ Expanded History

Richard “Rick” Jones was orphaned at a young age, and after being expelled from respective orphanages for disciplinary reasons he was placed into a country initiation called Tempest Town. A troubled and disaffected youth, Jones soon came to the attention of the institution ‘s headman administrator who smashed his guitar, a endowment from his former father, and then had him badly thrashed. Soon subsequently, Jones ran away from the mental hospital. He spent the first half of his teens drifting from town to town throughout the Southwest, trying to avoid the authorities, and doing humble knead when he could get it. At the age of 16, he got his driver ‘s license and managed to save adequate money to buy a practice car. Overhearing a adolescent dare a friend to ride out with him on the desert where it was rumored an atomic bombard was going to be tested, Jones offered to take him up on the challenge. He drove his car out to the quiz site to discover his rival was excessively timid to show up. Dr. Robert Bruce Banner, interior designer of the Gamma Bomb to be tested, learned that person had ventured onto the test site, and believing the countdown had been delayed, ran out into the abandon to warn him back. Banner managed to throw Jones into a protective trench before the turkey detonated, but he himself was bombarded with da gamma radiotherapy. This radiotherapy triggered a mutagenic change in Banner, causing him to turn into the raging superhuman Hulk. [ 12 ] Feeling responsible for Banner ‘s condition and being the alone person to know that the rampaging beastly was actually Banner, Jones became the Hulk ‘s sometimes undesirable companion and ally. Jones soon organized the Teen Brigade, a group of young amateurish ham radio enthusiasts to help him monitor the Hulk ‘s activities. [ 13 ] Jones was show during the Hulk ‘s first encounters with the army, a well as superhuman menaces as the Gargoyle, [ 12 ] the stranger Toadmen, [ 14 ] the Ringmaster, [ 10 ] Tyrannus, [ 15 ] and the Metal Master, [ 13 ] and even a quarrel with the Fantastic Four. [ 16 ]

The Avengers

The Avengers formed due to Rick ‘s radio broadcast warning about the Hulk. [ 17 ] He temporarily became a buddy for Captain America. His resemblance to Bucky was noted, [ 18 ] Rick even wore Bucky ‘s costume for a time. however, Captain America felt he did not want to lose another partner and that while Rick was a good athlete, he was not quite up to the level Bucky was. When Iron Man suggested that Rick be made a wide member of the Avengers, Cap powerfully opposed the mind. [ 19 ]

Travels With Marvel

The Kree hero Captain Mar-Vell was bonded to Rick due to only being able to function out of the Negative Zone for a few hours. [ 20 ] Using the Negative Zone portal site in the Baxter Building however, allowed Mar-Vell to co-exist with Rick on Earth once again. [ 21 ] Almost immediately subsequently, war broke out between the Kree and Skrull Empires ; this war immediately involved the Avengers. finally, the Supreme Intelligence arranged for Rick to be brought before it and awakened his latent psionic powers. Jones used them to paralyze the entire Skrull Space Fleet vitamin a well as Ronan and his forces, thereby ending the “ Kree-Skrull War “ and allowing the Supreme Intelligence to return to might. The Supreme Intelligence then robbed Jones of his might, leaving the young man exhausted and lying on the point of death. As the Supreme Intelligence had planned, Mar-Vell had to be linked with Jones, in the lapp manner as earlier, so that his own animation coerce would restore Jones to health. [ 22 ] Rick received one of the Nega-Bands and gained like powers to Captain Marvel [ 23 ] .As it turned out, this was a plot by the Supreme Intelligence so that Jones and Mar-Vell had to plowshare the power of the Nega-Bands. As the Supremor, challenged them in conflict at the same fourth dimension, intending to defeat them in prison term for their minds being ravaged by the Millenia Bloom, leaving them mindless soldiers which the intelligence would use to destroy Earth and absorb Jones ‘ electric potential. He was defeated when Jones activated the Intelligence ‘s ship ‘s weapons systems to cause a solar erupt from Hala. The intelligence was forced to divert all of its energy into the planetal shields, leaving it and all of the Kree powerless and unconscious mind. [ 24 ] On their way back to Earth, they passed besides close up to a black hole, merging them and trapping Jones in the Negative Zone once more. [ 25 ] After returning to Earth Jones pursued his music career, appearing as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live. [ 26 ]

belated Adventures

After Mar-Vell ‘s death, Rick began to team with the Hulk again. An attempt to cure the Hulk rather gave Rick radiation poisoning. In the hospital, the Dire Wraiths began to replace the staff, but were stopped by Rom. Rick assisted Rom against the Wraiths, and temporarily lived with Brandy Clark. Jones was cured by the Beyonder at the lapp clock time Rom and Brandy left for Galador. [ citation needed ] Rick soon began dating Marlo Chandler, a former girlfriend of the Hulk ‘s. The two late married with a great number of heroes in attendance. The impossible man did his best to usurp the proceedings by inviting the Kree, Skrulls, even Mephisto to the ceremony. After a period of alienation that besides involved Moondragon and Death becoming involved with Marlo, the two reunited. [ citation needed ]

Bonding with Genis-Vell

Jones was temporarily paralyzed while Hulk was the Horseman War. In an attempt to stop this ‘War Hulk ‘ he was thrown against a pyramid. [ citation needed ] Rick was cured during the Destiny War, summoning Avengers from versatile realities to battle for their very universe against the Time-Keepers. The deform was incredible, and a future version of Genis-Vell bonded to him, much like Rick had with Mar-Vell. [ 27 ] Rick and Genis by and by discovered this bond placid applied to the stream Genis. [ 28 ] For a clock time Rick was trapped in the Microverse as an harebrained Captain Marvel ran amuck throughout the population, in the Microverse Rick met the cosmic beings Epiphany and her brother information who were behind Captain Marvel ‘s insanity [ 29 ] and who helped him in destroying and then remaking the population despite Rick trying to use a new skill to induce pain in Genis through their psychic connect to stop him, something which he risks brain damage from if he does it excessively often or with excessively much violence. [ 30 ] Genis preserved Rick as a molecularly dispersed being after ending the universe, Rick was able to convince Entropy to remake the universe which returned Rick to the Microverse while Genis began to become even more insane than he was earlier. [ 31 ] Genis allowed Rick to return to Earth to speak at the trial of Karl Coven a crazed serial killer and to attend his execution where Coven returned to life after his deadly injection and was released and then tried to murder Rick. [ 32 ] Rick returned to the Microverse to escape Coven where his injuries were treated by a group referring to themselves as being ‘Jonesys ‘, [ 33 ] huge fans of Rick ‘s music which he played across the Microverse while he was stranded there with Epiphany. Due to an agreement with Genis, Jones and he would switch places every 24 hours and met Lucy Harper the wife of one of Coven ‘s victims who wanted Rick to help her kill him which Rick would n’t do. Lucy was abducted by Coven and Genis would n’t help her thus Rick had to save her and then threaten Genis to get him to help which he did by removing Coven ‘s powers, Coven was able to tap back into them after Rick shot him in the fork. Coven ‘s powers were removed again shortly after and he was killed [ 34 ] Genis became adequate to of influencing Rick ‘s mind so that Rick would n’t be equally bothered by what Genis was doing and would even agree with him. [ 35 ] ascribable to Genis ‘ refreshment of the population and powers Rick came face to face with himself as a adolescent and himself years belated while operating as Captain America ‘s buddy wearing Bucky ‘s previous undifferentiated. Rick was offered the probability to change the result of his life but decided against it. [ 36 ] Genis then revealed he had full manipulate of Rick through their psychic connect and could force Rick to do any he wanted without Rick understand or caring, including killing himself. [ 37 ] Genis cursorily began to miss Rick as he felt it was easier to feel superior with him around so he brought him back to life at Rick ‘s funeral moments before his body was going to be burned by his fans on a funeral pyre. [ 38 ] soon after this Genis regained his sanity and was congratulated by Rick. [ 39 ] inactive molecularly bonded to Genis, Rick recorded a song on Titan for Marlo whom he hoped to win back, Genis broadcast the sung across ground and even set up a web site where people could purchase it which made Rick millions. Rick then met with Genis ‘ sister Phyla-Vell who told them that no one was going to come to Genis for his aid as Captain Marvel as they were all afraid of him. In the position Rick was attacked by a superpowered future interpretation of Marlo Chandler who promptly disintegrated. Rick then begged Genis to save her before that became Marlo ‘s future. [ 40 ] Captain Marvel defeated extraterrestrial being forces plaguing the earth of a future global, continuing to travel further into the future he questioned the son of his future self Ely-Vell for information about Marlo, he then switched places with Rick Jones who did some wonder of his own. Ely revealed some raw powers however, and apparently destroyed Rick Jones and took his Nega-Bands. [ 41 ]

Rick Jones had in fact not been killed by Ely but rather launched into the future and even maintained his connection to Captain Marvel. Ely was revealed to be working for Magus together with the future Marlo. Captain Marvel directed Rick Jones to the location of his Nega-Bands, and Rick Jones arrived to find Ely and Marlo. Ely gave Jones his Nega-Bands back and forcibly summoned Captain Marvel before attacking him by using Phyla-Vell ‘s Nega-Bands. [ 42 ] Moondragon lied to Rick about the nature of her relationship with Marlo, claiming that the Magus was responsible through psychic manipulation so that Rick and Marlo could get back together without feeling guilty. While he and Marlo are attempting to ‘celebrate ‘ their reunion the cosmic beings Eulogy and Expediency arrive and freestanding Rick from Genis while breaking the 4th rampart. [ 43 ]

Separated from Genis

Jones authored a best-selling autobiographical fresh on his personal history with superhumans such as the Hulk, Captain America, Captain Marvel and The Avengers with a focus on his days as a buddy, the novel was titled ‘Sidekick ‘. [ 44 ] After the book was published there was a man impersonating Jones and attempting to make it as a musician. [ 45 ] Rick invested the royalties he earned from the print of ‘Sidekick ‘ and was rewarded with a substantial windfall. He anonymously offered a former adolescent superhero support group, Excelsior, a one million dollar contribution if they could track down the children of the condemnable group The Pride, who were operating in Los Angeles as the Runaways after Captain America informed him they had left their foster homes. The group ultimately failed to bring the Runaways in but Rick revealed himself as their benefactor and still suggested they turn their support group into a team to help deal with the rise in superpowered crime in California that had resulted from the death of the Pride. [ 46 ] When the Hulk returned to Earth from Sakaar where he had been exiled, Jones attempted to calm him down by telling him about Captain America ‘s end and the way the heroes had changed while he was gone, but just when the Hulk had calmed down and was listening to him, Dr. Strange invaded the Hulk ‘s mind reigniting his fad. [ 47 ] Rick late went to Strange ‘s Sanctum Sanctorum to try and speak with him, but was stopped by the Hulk ‘s Warbound. [ 48 ] He was able to escape the Madison Square Garden arena he was taken to when Dr. Strange arrived and attacked the hulk, utilizing the ability of the monster Zom, and again attempted to talk the Hulk down by reminding that he was a champion and Bruce Banner at affection to no avail. [ 49 ] Once the Hulk had ultimately calmed and reverted to Bruce Banner, Rick attempted to embrace him but was stabbed by a penis of the Hulk ‘s Warbound, Miek, causing Bruce to hulk out once more and learn that Miek had been responsible for the destruction of Sakaar. [ 50 ]

atom bomb

Wounded, Rick was transported to the gamma fail site that gave birth to the master Hulk. After being dropped off, he encountered the Red Hulk. After seeing that he had murdered Emil Blonsky, the Abomination, Rick was transformed by Intelligencia members the Leader and M.O.D.O.K. into a new blue creature who quite resembled the Abomination ; [ 11 ] calling himself A-Bomb. In his modern mannequin, he was much like the original Hulk incarnation in that he could not remember being anybody else once the transformation was complete, had a anneal which flared easily, and simplified manner of speaking patterns. He held his own against the Red Hulk for an extend period of time, withstanding all of his blows and injuring him multiple times, which previously cipher had been able to accomplish. The conflict was interrupted by several giant android harpies that were specifically designed by United States Military in event Bruce Banner escaped the facility as the Hulk. A-Bomb has proven to hold onto fragments of his memories as Rick Jones because he recognized the harpies all had the face of Betty Ross ; Bruce Banner ‘s first gear love. A-Bomb managed to disable one mid-flight, and they both crashed to Earth. The automaton exploded. [ 51 ] atom bomb joined with respective heroes including the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, She-Hulk and the Hulk to help stop an at hand earthquake in San Francisco which was caused by Red Hulk. [ 4 ] After the Red Hulk was defeated, A-Bomb reverted bet on to Rick. He attempted to reveal who Red Hulk in truth was, but was shot and dragged away by Doc Samson from the area. [ 52 ] Rick would use his powers as A-Bomb to help people, but when the Hulk, under a raw persona called “ Doc Green, ” decided to eliminate all the early Gamma powered people, he started with Rick. A-Bomb confronted Doc Green and refused to be “ cured, ” but ultimately, Hulk proved himself stronger, and injected A-Bomb with a drug of the remedy, which made Rick wholly human once more. [ 53 ]


As a by-product of being depowered, Rick ‘s genius suffered side effects, he discovered his memorize capabilities had been greatly increased. He decided to direct his newfangled ability towards communications engineering, and ended up becoming a hacktivist known as the Whisperer. [ 54 ] One of Rick ‘s major accomplishments as the Whisperer was leaking to the populace the universe of the proposal for a S.H.I.E.L.D. project named Kobik, which consisted of the fusion of different fragments of Cosmic Cubes into a individual one, to reshape reality as it would be deemed necessary. When S.H.I.E.L.D. tried to hunt the Whisperer down, he was helped by Captain America ( Sam Wilson ) to evade the authorities, as Cap believed the Whisperer ‘s intentions to be righteous and fight S.H.I.E.L.D. ‘s electric potential disproportionate retribution. From then on, Rick became an ally of Sam Wilson, while keeping his identity a secret, helping him in numerous cases. [ 55 ] shortly late, Rick found out that the Kobik program had actually never been terminated. [ 54 ] He gave Sam Wilson the location of the secret S.H.I.E.L.D. site and fled into the underground, only to be captured by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents because Rick had misjudged Jemma Simmons. [ 56 ] He subsequently was freed by the newly A.I.M. ‘s New Avengers whom he had contacted. [ 57 ] even though the New Avengers had rescued Rick, he doubted their true intentions due to the track record of the previous iteration of A.I.M. [ 58 ] This lack of trust prompted Rick to refuse to flee from Avengers Island through a portal to the Savage Land when S.H.I.E.L.D. forces invaded the facilities. alternatively, Rick remained hidden in the island, [ 59 ] and finally escaped unnoticed by the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents confiscating it. Rick was tracked down by Captain America, [ 60 ] and offered amnesty for his crimes as the Whisperer at the cost of being forced to work for S.H.I.E.L.D. as technical school support and help Captain America in his missions to fight Hydra. [ 61 ] Unbeknownst to anybody, Captain America had secretly been replaced by a twist and malefic version of himself by the sentient Cosmic Cube Kobik. [ 62 ] Rogers used Rick ‘s stead in S.H.I.E.L.D. to trick him into handing him the codes to the Planetary Defense Shield, [ 63 ] allowing Rogers to strand many heroes in space behind the Defense Shield while at the clemency of invading Chitauri to help pave the way for Hydra ‘s takeover of the United States. [ 64 ] After Rogers came out as a extremity of Hydra and took over the United States, Rick was taken into protective hands. While in Hydra hands, Rick hacked into Hydra ‘s network and obtain files that belonged to Hydra scientist Erik Selvig that would reveal the truth about Rogers. Rick sent the data over to hacker Rayshaun Lucas. When Hydra found out about Rick ‘s actions, he was arrested and thrown in jail. Rogers met with Rick in his prison cellular telephone and tried to convince Rick to tell him what data he had taken. Rick refused to cooperate and was convinced that Rogers was being brainwashed into believing he was a Hydra agent. Under blackmail from the High Council of Hydra to get bully on Hydra ‘s enemies, Rogers decided to make an example of Rick and had him executed by firing squad on live television. Before being guess, Rick shouted out, “ Avengers assemble ! ” [ 65 ] His body was late buried in Severin Memorial Cemetery. [ 66 ]

Shadow Base

As part of their cover efforts to detain the Hulk, the covert arrangement Shadow Base disinterred Rick ‘s body and used it as “ scaffolding ” for a shell of Gamma-Activated Tissue recovered from the remains of Emil Blonsky, the master Abomination. The procedure encased the cadaver in a cocoon, [ 67 ] bringing Jones back to life, and quickly evolving him into a bloodcurdling and hideous animal with an appearance alike to that of Abomination ‘s, but with respective rows of finger-like mandibles about completely concealing a head with two human faces, both contorted in agony. [ 7 ] The mutate Rick was sent to attack Bruce Banner, who was hiding out in Reno, Nevada. [ 6 ] He about succeeded, using an acidic secretion to dismember the Hulk, until Betty Ross intervened, having been mutated into the Harpy. [ 68 ] During the subsequent crusade, the Hulk dug up Rick ‘s body from the mutagenic shell and took off with it. [ 69 ] Rick finally recovered, having developed the ability to emanate da gamma radiation, [ 70 ] but with his thinker secretly taken over by the Leader in the process. [ 71 ] Feigning to be Rick, the Leader provided the Hulk and his allies with the localization of Shadow Base, [ 70 ] resulting on a raid after which the Hulk seized command of the operation from its unhinge drawing card, General Fortean. [ 72 ] The Leader kept puppeteering Rick as he joined Banner ‘s efforts to repurpose Shadow Base to embark on a countercultural motion to fight world for the destruction of the environment, [ 73 ] lone revealing himself to one of the Hulk ‘s enemies, Dario Agger, after he had been left incapacitated when his ally Xemnu turned against him and mangled him. [ 71 ] After Xemnu ‘s defeat skyrocketed the Hulk ‘s popularity, he was invited to Georgeville. During a photo-op, the Leader used Rick to overload the Hulk with gamma radiotherapy, causing him to detonate. [ 74 ] The da gamma fire devastated the surrounding area, but the Leader used Rick ‘s body to shield them from the explosion and absorb the radiation. This left Rick sternly deformed ; his body elongated with extra arms and legs sprouted. The Leader concurrently took dominance of Del Frye, a gamma mutate in hands of Shadow Base. With his concentration gap thin over Frye and Rick in accession to his probe of the Hulk ‘s judgment, the Leader incidentally let his control over Rick show when Gamma Flight arrived at Georgeville to detain the Hulk. [ 75 ] Rick was curtly subsequently teleported back to Shadow Base, [ 76 ] and the Leader attempted to entice running Dr. McGowan into joining his english. She refused and attempted to rid of him by activating the basal ‘s translocator on Rick, splitting him in half. [ 77 ] Although Rick was freed from the Leader ‘s master, the remains of his body fused into Frye ‘s torso. [ 78 ] The combine creature burrowed through the ground in a craze until it reached the coat. They stumbled into Shaman and Gamma Flight ‘s Puck and Doc Sasquatch, the latter being Doc Samson resurrected into Sasquatch ‘s body. [ 79 ] Although Shaman determined the two men could n’t be separated, he managed to ease their pain. [ 80 ] Rick and Del joined Gamma Flight in intercepting the Hulk ‘s battle against the Avengers, and they helped the Hulk and his allies evade the heroes. [ 81 ] After parting ways with the Hulk, Gamma Flight went into shroud. The team resurfaced after a modern gamma mutate codenamed Stockpile went on a rampage, leading to the discovery that a rogue government representation called Project Green Spring was experimenting with gamma on the town of Thomasville. During Gamma Flight ‘s raid on Green Spring ‘s facility, the Absorbing Man absorbed the properties of the Cathexis Ray and used his only charge to separate Rick and Del. With fleeceable spring ‘s operations shut down, Rick decided to leave Gamma Flight, wishing to get some quad for himself. [ 82 ]


Power Grid[95]


Destiny Force: On rare occasions, and through unusual circumstances, Jones has been able to tap into a cryptic, near-limitless energy informant known as the Destiny Force. The Destiny Force is believed to be built-in in all humanity. Jones has used this power to alter reality in the by by bringing figures from his own imagination to life or even figures from different times of being. He has proven able to render thousands of Kree and Skrull warriors immobile with a think, single-handed overcome the Atlantean army, augment all of his own physical attributes, heal himself after sustaining biography threatening energies, and levitate. The entire limits of the Destiny Force, its overall nature, and why Jones has been able to harness it at only certain times, all these are presently nameless. [ citation needed ] Enhanced Learning Capabilities: As a consequence of being depowered from his atom bomb class, Rick ‘s genius was changed. According to himself, he was now able to pick new skills up lightning-fast. [ 54 ] Gamma Mutation: After being loose from the Gamma-Activated Tissue, Rick developed some newly powers :

  • Energy Projection: Rick is able to release gamma energy at will. The full extent of the ability and how much control of it he has are unrevealed. He is able to release energy from his hands intense enough to melt through a thick, steel door.[83]
  • Flight: Rick is able to fly through the air through unknown means.[84]
  • Gamma Tracking: Rick is able to track gamma mutates through some sort of extrasensory power.[85]

former PowersHulk:

  • Physical Transformation: After been knocked into a nutrient bath being used to merge the then-separated Bruce Banner and the Hulk,[86] Rick Jones would transform into a gamma-powered monster at nightfall, just as Banner’s transformations had originally occurred.[3] The full parameters of his powers were never established, and he no longer has access to them after the Leader had the gamma radiation drained from Jones in order to reignite his own lost powers.[87]
    • Superhuman Strength:
    • Superhuman Speed:
    • Superhuman Leaping:
    • Superhuman Stamina:
    • Superhuman Durability:
    • Regenerative Healing Factor:


  • Physical Transformation: After being exposed to a weapon powered by gamma radiation designed for use against the Hulk, Jones was mutated by the radiation. As a result, Jones can transform into a superhuman form that resembles the Abomination. Jones has demonstrated the ability to transform at will and, when doing so, gains an additional 4 feet 3 inches in height and 1,835 pounds of muscle, bone and connective tissue to his frame. Jones’ skin takes on a scaly sort of appearance, his eyes change color and his hair disappears. As of being cured of radiation by Doc Green, he is no longer able to do this.[53]
    • Superhuman Strength: While transformed into A-Bomb, Jones’ musculature, connective tissues and skeletal structure are augmented to levels far beyond those of ordinary humans. As a result, his strength is augmented to great superhuman levels. At his peak, he possesses sufficient superhuman strength to be listed at exactly class 100.[citation needed]
    • Suspended Aging: For all intents and purposes A-Bomb does not age. Due to his great healing factor that regenerates his cells, and with the gamma energy and Destiny Force that empowers him, A-Bomb does not age at all.[citation needed]
    • Superhuman Stamina: Jones’ musculature as A-Bomb is more efficient than that of an ordinary human. As a result, his muscles produce less fatigue toxins during physical activity than those of normal humans. Though the exact limit of his stamina isn’t known, he can at least exert himself for several hours without fatigue impairing his overall capabilities.[citation needed]
    • Superhuman Durability: As A-Bomb, Jones’ superhuman body is much tougher and more resistant to injury than that of an ordinary human. Since Jones’ ability to transform into his superhuman form is a recent development, the full limits of his resistance to injury isn’t known. However, his hide is exceptionally tough and can withstand repeated blows by a foe as physically powerful as the Red Hulk without sustaining injury. His body can also withstand falls from great heights and exposure to temperature extremes without being damaged. He has also demonstrated that his hide is bulletproof as Red Hulk tried to use a mini-gun from on him but it merely tickles A-Bomb.[citation needed]
    • Self Sustenance: A-Bomb does not need air, water, food, or sleep to survive.[citation needed]
    • Camouflage: He also has a camouflage ability, being able to turn nearly invisible to match his environment.[citation needed]

Subject B / Abomination:

  • Transformation: After having the Abomination’s tissue grafted to his corpse, Jones was resurrected into a new, transformed state.[88] He lost these powers when the Abomination tissue grafted to him was removed by Hulk.[69]
    • Superhuman Strength: He possesses an unknown level of super strength, but it’s enough to for him crush a taxi and match the strength of the Hulk.[6]
    • Superhuman Durability: He also appears to have a high level of durability as he was able to withstand a punch from Hulk and not appear to have any injuries.[6]
    • Regeneration: According to one of his operators, Rick is able to recover from grievous injuries, even lost organs.[69]
    • Claws: Rick has a claw on each one of his fingers sharp enough to scratch even the Hulk.[6]
    • Acidic-Poison Generation: Jones could generate a highly caustic solvent that was potent enough to dissolve the flesh of the Hulk and negate his healing factor. He could both secrete this gastric substance from his hands and spit it out from his two mouths. Jones, however, is limited to how much toxic acid he could generate and needs to eat in order to create more. He also loses this ability temporarily if he loses his stomach until he recovers.[68]


Jones is an accomplished gymnast and hand to hand combatant. Jones has a exhaustive cognition of Judo and Karate and has even had some prepare from Captain America himself. He besides has exceeding melodious endowment and has proven himself to be a skilled songwriter, guitarist and harmonica player. [ citation needed ] Skilled Combatant: After received trail by Captain America in respective martial arts including fight gymnastics, he is a highly have hand-to-hand combatant. [ 89 ] As A-Bomb, he does not seem to remember any of it but is a natural champion, making him a formidable opposition in combat. [ citation needed ] Computer Skills: Through his change brain chemistry, Rick learned how to be a skilled calculator user. [ 54 ] With his skills, he is able to hack into the computers of high-level organizations like S.H.I.E.L.D. [ 55 ]


early Weaknesses[90] He overcame this issue when he and Del Frye were finally separated by [91]

  • Impaired Intelligence: During his brief tenure as the Hulk, Rick also suffered from a decrease in intellect, similar to many of Banner’s incarnations as the monster.[3] As A-Bomb, Jones’ intelligence was impaired and below that of an average human. As A-Bomb, he had little recall of his memories or his past. He loses all of his musical abilities and all but the most rudimentary form of combat skills. Jones was able to get control of his mind as A-Bomb, and retained all of his intelligence and possessed complete control as A-Bomb, but he was also trapped in his A-Bomb form. Rick eventually gained the ability to transform at will, retaining his mind in his A-Bomb form due to the Hulk’s wish.[92] As Subject B, Rick had no control of his mind and could barely speak. He would also attack innocent people that cross his path.[6] After being freed from the Gamma-Activated Tissue, Rick regained control over his mind, but his level of intelligence has a tendency to vary from normal to limited.[83] After being merged and then separated from Del Frye he has apparently regained all of his intelligence.[91]

* Because he and Del Frye parcel one body, their minds struggle to adjust to another and at times ca n’t perform everyday tasks.He overcome this issue when he and Del Frye were last separated by Carl Creel


  • Rick has been stated to have ‘comics awareness’ a form of 4th wall breaking which allowed him to identify tropes and cliches connected with the medium of comic books as well as to be aware when his own comic series was ending.[43]
  • A-Bomb had an appearance similar to a blue-skinned Abomination.
