Bionically enhanced lobster. Increased strength.
Gomi is the code name of Alphonsus Lefszycic, a fictional character in the Marvel Comics Universe. He is a cyborg telekinetic and a member of the Fallen Angels; a team of adolescent mutant heroes that were a spin-off from the New Mutants team. Gomi's first appearance was in issue two of the Fallen Angels limited series.
Alphonsus Lefszycic gains his powers from his older brother, a researcher in bionics. His brother's initial research results in two cybernetically enhanced lobsters named "Don" and "Bill". Alphonsus' brother and his partner treat him harshly and give him the nickname "Gomi" which comes from a Japanese word meaning 'junk'. Gomi idolizes the two and does not at first realize he is being mistreated.
Under pressure to produce results beyond the lobsters, the scientists experiment on Gomi himself and attempt to give him telekinetic abilities. When Gomi's new cybernetics produce a powerful, destructive blast, further funding for the project is denied. Gomi steals the lobsters, to save them from being eaten, and runs away. It soon turns out Gomi has a psychic link with the lobsters.
Gomi eventually joins the Fallen Angels and their adventures take him out of this dimension entirely. Gomi suffers a tragedy when the team enlists the red tyrannosaurus Devil Dinosaur and his ape-like companion Moon-Boy. Devil Dinosaur accidentally steps on Don, killing him. Despite this, Gomi sticks with the team, later assisting them in battling an alien organization who wishes to capture mutants to jumpstart their race's evolution.
