The Harbinger of Apocalypse is a fictional character that appears in the Marvel Universe. He first appears in "Cable" #50, and was created by writer James Robinson and artist José Ladrönn.

Fictional character biography

In 1859, the immortal mutant Apocalypse during his time in London decided that he would need a superpowered agent in the 20th century and imprisoned an unnamed human in a special coffin. Inside the coffin, this man would be transformed by Apocalypse's Celestial technology into the Harbinger of Apocalypse.

In the late 20th century, the Hellfire Club found out about the existence of the Harbinger and intended to use it to track down Apocalypse for the Hellfire Club's exploitation. Cable tried to stop the Hellfire Club, but he was too late and the Harbinger awoke. The Harbinger defeated the Hellfire Club and disappeared, but Cable tracked him down. The Harbinger told Cable that his programming dictated that he should bring destruction and chaos to the world, but he wanted to judge humanity himself before obeying.

Some time later, the Harbinger reappeared in Manhattan and decided that humanity should be destroyed. Cable and the Avengers battled the Harbinger, but he adapted to all of their attacks. In the end, Apocalypse activated a bomb inside the Harbinger which would destroy New York. Cable managed to prevent the destruction of New York by wearing Iron Man's flight boots and grabbing the Harbinger. The bomb exploded over the Atlantic Ocean, killing the Harbinger, but Cable was saved by a group of timetravellers.

Powers and abilities

The Harbinger had the ability to adapt to any attack used against him. During his fight with the Avengers and Cable, he showed superhuman strength and durability, the ability to fly, teleport and project destructive energy from his body. The Harbinger also had a bomb inside him which was powerful enough to destroy him and a large city.
