Originally The Nega-Man was a separate form which split off from Janus, containing the majority of his negative emotions. After this form was destroyed, Janus himself later became the Nega-Man, allowing his darker emotions to guide him.
Janus wore a control module which harnessed "Negative Energy" or "Nega-Power" to enable him to perform a variety of feats. While it could harness the energy of anti-matter, neither he nor it could survive direct exposure to anti-matter. It could fire concussion blasts able to demolish a large building. It could enhance his physical strength and durability (allegedly by increasing the mass of his atomic structure). Using solely the power of the harness, he could achieve sufficient power to easily batter the Thing into unconsciousness (Probably at a minimum Class 75-90). It could release powerful bursts of electricity, easily able to knock a man out. It also could release a tranquilizer mist able to render people instantly unconscious. It could generate and project cold and ice, sufficient to bring down a small aircraft in flight.
The Nega-Man used a small, one-man gyroscopic aircraft to travel between cities. It was durable enough to be used as a battering ram to smash a hole into a building or a truck and remain undamaged.
Janus was forced to use crutches to get around, presumably the result of some childhood illness or injury. He later cured this weakness with Nega-Power.
former colleague of Reed Richards. Originaly split, by negative energy, into two beings, one good one evil. He later traveled to the Negative Zone in serch of more power. He was destroyed by anti-Matter.
