Powers/Abilities: Kid Quarry could shoot cement rocks from his hands. He possessed enhanced strength and durability. Kid Quarry was over 8' tall and his eyes had no pupils.

History: (Nova II#10) - Kid Quarry and his partners led a weapon-smuggling ring.

    After they smuggled some Stinger missiles, the criminals gathered in their warehouse where they were pursued by the New Warriors and attacked by Nova.
Kid Quarry immediately recovered from Nova's punch and shot a blast of cement at the hero, but Nova deflected the rocks toward Deadhead and Sureshot. Enraged Nova charged at Kid Quarry and slammed him into a steel beam, knocking him out.

    Kid Quarry was captured like his partners.

(Nova III#2) - Some time later Kid Quarry robbed a liquor store, running away with the safe, but met Nova again, who didn't even remember his name. A punch from Nova was enough for Kid Quarry, who soon understood he was overpowered, so he feigned to be afraid of Nova then hit him with a cement blast. It was enough to distract Nova and the criminal escaped.

His "special" power seemed matter transmutation, I suppose that it is of mutant origin and that it works if he is at direct contact with cement or ground.
