Real Name: Arlo Summers

Affiliations: X-Force (Anarchist, Dead Girl, Doop, Orphan, Phat, Vivisector), Sycamore, Wash-Out, other tryouts

Known Relatives: None (see comments)

First Appearance: X-Force#129 (August, 2002)

Powers/Abilities: Anti-Matter didn't display any actual superpowers, although he did wear what looks like a containment suit of some sort with energy inside it, so I think it's safe to assume that he gives off anti-matter energy of some sort.

History: (X-Force#129) - Anti-Matter was seen at the X-Force recruitment drive and introduced himself to the television audience.

Comments: Created by Peter Milligan and Duncan Fegredo.

I would also like to point out that his real name is Arlo Summers, which seems to me that he could be connected to Marvel's "Summers Family Tree," which includes Cyclops, Havok, and Phoenix of the X-Men, as well as Corsair of the Starjammers. There may not be any connection whatsover, but it just seems odd that his last name is Summers and so many other mutants in the Marvel Universe are also named Summers.

He looks like the Space Ghost from the Scooby Doo series!
