Guardian (Marvel)(04 - Michael Pointer)
Real Name: Michael Pointer
Search for 'Guardian (Marvel)(04 - Michael Pointer)' on Amazon

Michael Pointer is a mutant with the ability to absorb the energy of other mutants. As the Collective, he contained the inherent power of almost every mutant on the planet.

Micheal can discharge powerful energy blasts that incinerated buildings, several demons from Surtur's army and dimensional rifts with a single burst. Michael also has the ability to fly at unknown speeds.

A mutant with the ability to absorb the energy of others, Pointer works as a U.S. postman in North Pole, Alaska. He inadvertently becomes the focal point of the mutant energy displaced after the Decimation. This energy hovers above Earth, maintaining the disembodied mind of deceased mutant Xorn. After absorbing this energy, Pointer becomes the being known as the Collective. With his body possessed by Xorn's consciousness, Pointer goes on a rampage across North America. Upon entering Canada, the Collective kills most of the original members of Alpha Flight. In Cleveland, outside the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he faces Iron Man, Ms. Marvel and the Sentry in battle. Spider-Man and the Vision, with the assistance of S.H.I.E.L.D., determine the nature of his powers.

The Collective leads Michael to Genosha, then begins to transfer its powers from Michael to the recently depowered Magneto. After the ensuing battle between Magneto (now under Xorn's possession) and the New Avengers, Pointer is shown to still possess a large amount of residual energy. After the super-hero Civil War, he is forced to join Omega Flight as a means of atoning for the damage caused while the Collective inhabited his body.

As a member of Omega Flight, Pointer wears a suit similar to that of Guardian (ironically, the man he killed). Given to him by Walter Langkowski, the suit regulates his mutant powers. During Omega Flight's first mission, Pointer aids the group against the combined forces of the Wrecking Crew and the malevolent spirit known as Tanaraq. After the battle, Sasquatch apologizes for forcing the Guardian suit on him, instructing Pointer to avoid dwelling on the past and to instead do right by the Guardian suit and the nation it represents. Pointer is later seen training in the Omega Flight compound with a smile on his face.

Michael Pointer, under the code name of Weapon Omega, appears in the on-going Marvel Comics Presents series.
