Powers/Abilities: Xeniac is a huge (roughly 30') humanoid with three-fingered hands and leathery skin. He presumably possesses strength and durability commensurate with this size. As a weapon, he carries a massive club which appears to be technologically sophisticated, although it has not demonstrated any special abilities.History: (Sentry II#2 (fb)) - After fighting and being defeated in one-on-one combat by the Sentry, Xeniac threatened the hero's wife, provoking a chilling promise of retribution.
Comments: Created by Paul Jenkins, John Romita Jr and Mark Morales.
Xeniac is one of many brief flashback villains used to retroactively establish the Sentry's long superhero career; although his flashback actually takes place only a week prior to the events of the main story, the dialogue implies that the Factious Five are long-time enemies of the Sentry.
