Madison Jeffries (Marvel)

Search for 'Madison Jeffries (Marvel)' on Amazon

Madison Jeffries is a mutant with the ability to manipulate metal, glass and plastic. He is able to manipulate these substances down to the atomic level. He principally uses his abilities to alter the form and capabilities of the Box robot, but stunts include blowing up metallic entities, or instantly repairing mechanical objects or beings. While his brother was alive, Madison was able to psychically sense the presence of Lionel Jeffries.

Madison is a mutant (like his brother, Lionel, a.k.a. Scramble), and became a mechanic and engineer. He enlisted in the U.S.Army in 'nam, where Lionel suffered a nervous breakdown ; Madison himself ended up in a clinic when coming back home. He met Roger Bochs, the inventor of the Box armor, and both joined Department H's Beta Flight (where Jeffries had a romantic encounter with Diamond Lil). When the government disbanded the Flights, they were among the few who did not turn criminal. Still, while Roger became Box, Madison stayed in the background despite being responsible for the actual building of the new robot.

However, Jeffries was present in the parking lot of the West Edmonton Mall after Alpha's second encounter with Omega Flight. Using his powers Jeffries was able to single-handedly defeat the retreating Omegans.

Jeffries remained with Alpha as a resident machinesmith and mechanic until Roger Bochs succumbed to his growing mental problems. When Bochs finally snapped it was Jeffries who defeated him by using his powers to kick Bochs out of the Box robot. Jeffries then took possession of the robot for himself. Alpha Flight then experienced horrific problems with Lionel Jeffries, and Roger Bochs went completely insane and was killed by Lionel. Thus was Madison forced to step in and become Box.
