Powers/Abilities: Paradox is a cyber-morph that can control the shape and size of its body. Paradox is also super strong. It seems impervious to most attacks. Its entire body is an environmental sensor.

History: (Generation X I#47 (fb))- Paradox was a form of artificial intelligence that Forge was able to deactivate and reprogram into the Danger Room controls as a basketball hoop.

(Generation X I#47)- When Generation X received their first Danger Room Gaia was playing basketball and since she couldn’t get the ball into the hoop, she used her powers to expand the hoop, which freed Paradox. Paradox burst in on Generation X while Forge was teaching a lesson. Generation X kept it busy while Forge displayed the binary code to shut down Paradox. Synch then synched with Emma Frost and telepathically downloaded the code into Paradox’s memory. Paradox reverted back into a basketball hoop.

Comments: Created by Larry Hama and Aaron Lopresti.
