Real Name: David Alleyne
Search for 'Prodigy (Marvel)(04 - David Alleyne)' on Amazon


Powers:
Prodigy used psychic powers in order to replicate the skills of others as well as avoid them.

Bio:
David has the ability to temporarily absorb knowledge (but not superpowers) from anyone in close proximity who is not telepathically shielded. A mental block keeps him from retaining the knowledge once the person has passed a certain distance away from him. David has always been the smart one, but when he was a teenager, the answers just started appearing in his head- so long as he was in the same room as the teacher. He started to figure out that he was a mutant, and that he now had the ability to know anything that the people nearby knew. Feeling this made him a cheater, and knowing the knowledge would fade, David was driven to study even harder. He took college-level courses while finishing high school. But he kept his mutation a secret, until the hate group Purity outed him to his parents and attempted to attack him. David was rescued by the librarian at his school, the former New Mutant Karma, and her former teammate Danielle Moonstar.

David was taken to the Xavier Institute and placed on Dani's squad called The New Mutants. His fellow teammates were Surge, Elixir, Wind Dancer, Wallflower and Wither. Dani appointed David as team leader but declined so Wind Dancer took over. She turned out to be a bad team leader and David did take charge but not officially. In the end David and Wind Dancer became joint team leaders. Also David began a relationship with Surge.

In the wake of the House of M storyline, he has lost his powers. When he and Josh wake up, Josh asks him what's going on, and David replies that he does not know anything. David soon reveals that he has built a "Danger Cave" that allows his teammates to relive former missions of the X-Men so they can train after he leaves, but Cyclops decides that it would be safer for him to remain at the mansion since William Stryker is targeting de-powered mutants as well. When Stryker attacks the mansion he is wounded by one of the Purifierers, who are stopped by the students, but seems to be fine when he joins the New X-Men when they leave to fight Nimrod. He proves useful to the team when he attacks the robot with the weapons brought by X-23. After returning to the mansion, he is invited to stay by Cyclops, which he gladly accepts.

David and several students listen to a story told by Blindfold, about Magik, a deceased member of the original New Mutants. The group is kidnapped by Belasco. They are taken to the other-dimensional realm commonly known as Limbo. David is questioned by Belasco about Magik. When told she is dead, Belasco kills David. Elixir uses his mutant powers to revive David.

Hank McCoy, the Beast tells David to protect the other students, instead of taking part in the fight against the Hulk.

Notes:
David was depowered on M-Day.
