Powers/Abilities: Thraxon is an Inhuman who may or may not have undergone Terrigenesis. Thraxon was empowered by the Sphinx for a time with ionic abilities. Thraxon could store up energy in his form and discharge it as concussive blasts or in the form of force shields.

Thraxon has built machines that helped him amplify his powers, allowing him to fire ionic blasts through a cannon or to cover the entire city of Attilan in a nearly impenetrable ionic force field.

Thraxon also seems to have a low-level mesmerism, getting others to follow his leadership. This power could be from the Sphinx as well, or could be some sort of Inhuman ability, perhaps related to Terrigenesis.

History: (Fantastic Four I Annual#12 (fb) – BTS) – Thraxon was an Inhuman who was known to the Royal Familiy for his militant beliefs.  

(Fantastic Four I Annual#12 (fb)) – When the Sphinx crashed in Attilan, he saw a way to exploit power resources there and he selected Thraxon as his agent. Sphinx granted Thraxon ionic powers, the ability to fire concussive blasts and create force shields.

(Fantastic Four I Annual#12 (fb) – BTS) – Getting accustomed to his ionic powers, Thraxon built a massive weapon that could fire energy blasts. He also learned to create ionic force shields.

(Inhumans I#12 (fb) – BTS) – During a time when Attilan was wrecked and the Royal Family was gone, Thraxon made a play for power, seeking to organize the Inhumans behind his leadership.

(Inhumans I#12) – Thraxon challenged the Inhumans to rebuild the technology that their city thrived on. He instructed Iridia, who was loyal to him, to deliver plans to the western perimeter. Quicksilver and Crystal grew concerned about Thraxon's intentions.

(Fantastic Four I Annual#12 (fb)) – Seemingly using a mesmerism ability to enthrall the public, Thraxon rushed for the rebuilding of Attilan but Quicksilver protested against him, noticing that Thraxon was bulding a fortress. Thraxon turned his loyal Inhumans against Quicksilver and Crystal, and Thraxon took them down himself, hitting them with an ionic blast. When the Royal Family returned from space, Thraxon shot their ship out of the air. Thraxon, mad with power, screamed about how he planned to conquer the humans of Earth and let the Inhumans rise to the top. Thraxon hit Medusa with a full blast then threatened to kill Crystal unless the others surrendered but as he captured the other Inhumans, Lockjaw escaped, taking Crystal with him.

(Fantastic Four I Annual#12) – Crystal, with Lockjaw, returned the Human Torch to Attilan, where Thraxon used an ion cannon and the force fields to protect himself from them. Resistant to their flames and elemental attacks, Thraxon announced his plans to cover all of Attilan in a force field. Crystal returned with the Fantastic Four and the Invisible Woman managed to shatter the ionic force field. As the heroes burst in, Thraxon launched a space vehicle with the Royal Family inside into space, where the Sphinx planned to exploit the powers of Black Bolt. As the ship moved into space, Thraxon suddenly realized that his power had been stripped from him by the Sphinx. The Fantastic Four easily defeated Thraxon then left him to the Inhumans while they headed into space. They later defeated the Sphinx as well.
