Powers/Abilities: After undergoing
Terrigenesis, Lash developed the ability to absorb energy and either
fire it back as energy blasts or use it to enhance his own strength and
create energy shields.
Lash is also incredibly tall and heavy, and seems to
possess some inherent super-strength and durability.
Lash also seems to be trained in hand-to-hand combat
and is comfortable murdering those he finds unworthy with his bare
hands. The full extent of his powers are likely unrevealed.
Lash has access to the powers and technology of the other members of the Tribe, using those resources to frequently teleport around the globe and to build machines, one of which was meant to convert Black Bolt's blood into a Terrigenesis project.
Weight: 440 lbs.
History: (Inhuman I#1 (fb) – BTS) – Lash grew up in the Inhuman city of Orollan, where the Terrigen Mists were rare and administered to only a select few once per generation in the hopes that those chosen would help to better society. Lash was one of those chosen and he emerged from the mists with a bestial appearance and super-strength. In time, Lash began to believe that not all were worthy of Terrigen and he made it his mission to kill those who were not deemed worthy by him. Years later, Black Bolt unleashed the Terrigen Mists across the Earth, transforming many latent Inhumans and destroying the city of Orollan (when Thane's powers activated). Lash decided to recruit the worthy and to kill the rest.(Inhuman I#1) – Lash found a cocoon in Bergen, Norway and drove it into the hills, where he waited for dawn until it hatched. Lash saw a monstrous Inhuman, Kristian, emerge and he immediately killed the creature. Lash then traveled to Chicago, where Mrs. Petruz and Dante Petruz had just entered Terrigen cocoons but Mrs. Petruz soon died, unable to handle the transformation. Dante then emerged with the ability to control flame and Lash offered him a place in Orrolan but Dante refused. Medusa appeared in the room and Lash chose to teleport away rather than face her.
(Inhuman I#3 (fb) – BTS) – Lash spent weeks gathering new Inhumans, including Mother Bones, Kacy (who grew to call him "papa") and Grove. He saved Mother Bones from a mob of humans intent on killing her. Lash taught his Inhumans to hate and mistrust Medusa. They saw Lash lose his temper sometimes, seeing him kill some of their number during fits of rage.(Inhuman I#4 (fb) – BTS) – Lash went to northern Minnesota and recruited Jason, a new Inhuman with rock powers, while the rest of the Inhuman cocoons there were already dead.
(Black Bolt I#10 (fb) - BTS) - Lash recruited Fume to join the Tribe. Lash then had a machine designed that could use Inhuman blood to activate Terrigenesis when the machine was properly powered. He predicted that the machine would kill millions and create more Inhumans for him to rule. He made plans to drain Black Bolt's blood to power the machine.
(Black Bolt I#9) - Lash led the Tribe (Jack Chain, Sheath, Furball) to a New York cemetery, where Black Bolt had been attending the funeral of the Absorbing Man. Lash attacked, intending to kill Black Bolt, who was there with his allies Titania and Blinky. Jack Chain apprehended Blinky and Lash teleported the child back to Orollan, daring Black Bolt to come after her.
(Black Bolt I#10) - Black Bolt and Titania attacked Orollan and easily defeated Furball and Sheath, inspiring Jack Chain to run for it. Lash held Blinky in his hand and Black Bolt surrendered then Fume knocked both Black Bolt and Titania out. Lash revealed his plans to create more NuHumans and then to go on to rule humanity, Black Bolt was strapped to the machine, which induced a form of madness in him, but Black Bolt burst free of the machine and freed Titania and Blinky. They made short work of the Tribe before Black Bolt fell then Blinky attacked, manifesting the powerful Jailer.
(Black Bolt I#11) - Jailer seemingly killed Jack Chain then overloaded Lash with psychic energy. Furball and Sheath ran away toward an airship but Titania intercepted them, convincing them to join her in the ship as they rushed for help. They soon arrived in New York City but Lockjaw teleported aboard the ship and took Titania away, leaving Sheath and Furball free.
