Porcupine (Marvel)(03 - William Bates)
Real Name: William Nathaniel Bates
Search for 'Porcupine (Marvel)(03 - William Bates)' on Amazon

Powers:
Offensive morphing power lets him sprout razor tipped spikes form his face, body, and right arm, fire these spikes as projectile bolts, and distort his left arm into a misshapen, extended form with elongated fingers and claws.

Bio:
A relatively normal teenager before manifesting his powers, Billy inadvertently killed a group of human patrons at the Cafe Des Artistes who were harassing the mutant waitress Sylvie, on whom he had a crush. He took her “hostage” which led to a police standoff. Rather than allow the situation to become a catalyst for anti-mutant strife in Mutant Town, also because one of Billy's victims was one of the leading people of the Louisiana chapter of Purity, Alexei Vazhin hired Sashenka Popova to assassinate Billy Bates. Vazhin then paid Sylvie and her father off to keep them quiet about the incident. While he never officially took the name "The Porcupine" Billy intended to use it as his superhero name.
