Ord (Marvel)
Real Name: Ord
Search for 'Ord (Marvel)' on Amazon

Ord possesses strength much greater than that of a human and is also capable of flight. It is unclear whether these attributes are shared by all members of his race, or if they are the product of alien technology.

Ord is a member of an alien race from a planet called the Breakworld. He was sent to Earth by the ruler of the Breakworld, Powerlord Kruun, on a mission to stop a mutant from Earth from destroying their planet (an event predicted using their race's advanced technology). To this end Ord obtained the body of the X-Man Colossus and resurrected him using superior Breakworld technology. Ord proceeded to experiment on Colossus and with the assistance of the human scientist Dr. Kavita Rao using his DNA to develop a cure for the mutant condition in the hope that this would prevent the destruction of his planet. In doing all this Ord was acting with the tacit consent of Special Agent Abigail Brand, the head of S.W.O.R.D. who was attempting to avert a potential war between Earth and the Breakworld.

During their first encounter Ord nearly defeated the X-Men but was caught off guard by Lockheed. Later, Ord was nearly killed by an enraged Colossus after he had been released by his X-Men comrades, but was prevented from doing so by Special Agent Brand and Nick Fury accompanied by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. After one last attempt to escape aboard a spaceship was thwarted by Wolverine, Ord was delivered into the custody of S.W.O.R.D. Later Ord escaped from the Peak, a space station in orbit around the Earth, with the assistance of Danger and attacked the X-men while they were under attack by Cassandra Nova. Ord and Danger were subsequently captured by S.W.O.R.D, along with the X-men, and teleported aboard a starship headed for Breakworld. Ord was able to contact his homeworld to alert them that Colossus was also aboard, an event deliberately engineered by Agent Brand to draw Breakworld's forces away from Earth. When the S.W.O.R.D. starship was captured by the Breakworlders, Ord was taken prisoner, charged with the faliure of his mission, a crime punishable by death.
