Thomas Cassidy (Black Tom Cassidy)Edit
Cassidy has the ability to generate blasts of concussive force or heat by using wood as the focus for his power; typically a wooden shillelagh. Following genetic engineering, Cassidy could channel the energy he generates directly through parts of his body that were grafted to a wood-like substance.
After being seriously injured by Cable, Cassidy's body was healed by an artificial wood-like growth introduced into his body. This substance initially served as a focus for his bio-blasts, and later gave him plant-control abilities. The substance was surgically removed after another series of injuries, reverting him to his previous look.
