Blackout possesses the mutant ability to cloak himself in darkness, creating an effective camouflage to attack his unsuspecting victims. In his original life, he had steel fangs implanted into his mouth. After his rebirth by Lilth, he possessed true demon fangs and his facial scars were healed. Blackout also possesses superhuman strength and agility, he is impervious to most weapons, and is able to heal at an accelerated rate. However, he appeared to be very weak against hellfire, and Blackout's skin is extremely sensitive to light. Exposure to direct sunlight causes his skin to burn rapidly. Blackout did die when stabbed through the heart by Blade.

He is a highly experienced hand-to-hand combatant, a superior acrobat, and wrestler.

Other Info
Little is known about Blackout's past. However, he was initially employed by the demonic crime lord Deathwatch as an enforcer and assassin. Soon afterward, he encountered the Ghost Rider (Daniel Ketch). He later even battled the Kingpin's men while on a mission; however, his mission was foiled by the Ghost Rider again. This time, Blackout attempted to bite the Ghost Rider on the neck, but his face became disfigured by the burst of hellfire that came from the bite wounds.

Disgruntled and disappointed by his failures, Blackout became obsessed with obtaining revenge on the Ghost Rider. Over time, though, he eventually learned the Ghost Rider's true identity which led him to murder his sister, Barbara Ketch. (To learn about Barbara Ketch, click on her name above.)

Later on, the Morlocks had been in conflict over a plan to change babies into mutated forms. Ghost Rider's incorrect belief that Blackout was behind the vanishing babies brought the attention of the actual Blackout. Though the children were rescued safely, with the assistance of X-Factor, Blackout did kill the Morlock Pixie before he escaped.

Blackout later reemerge with his great grandmother, Lilith, and the Lilin children. Alongside Lilth and the Lilin, Blackout battled Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze, Dr. Michael Morbius, the Nightstalkers, and the Darkhold Redeemers in Greenland. During the battle, Blade stabbed Blackout in the heart, killing him. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about the characters and/or group.

Later, Blackout was reborn along with the rest of his fallen brethren, thanks to Lilith. Being reborn, Blackout was now a full-breed demon with real fangs and claws. In addition, his scarred face was healed.

Much later, Blackout would meet his fate again. This time he would be beaten by Ghost Rider and chained to the World Trade Center until the sun came out to burn him alive. However, it was later revealed to he managed to escape before he died.

During the mutant Civil War caused by the Superhuman Registration Act, Blackout was hired by the Hood and fought against the the New Avengers. However, Blackout was taken down by Doctor Strange. (To learn about the even, characters, and/or team, click on the highlighted names above.)

Later on, Blackout was called on by Zadkiel to put together a group of individuals to kill both Ketch and Blaze Ghost Riders. The Deacon was working side-by-side with him, and they rounded out their team by recruiting Madcap, Big Wheel, Trull, Scarecrow and the new Vengeance. While Big Wheel and Trull kept Blaze and Ketch busy, Blackout attacked a church where the Gun Nuns were. Blackout thought they would be easy pickings, but bullets from the nuns were dipped in holy water and Blackout was forced to make a hasty retreat screaming in pain into the night.

The creators of the Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance movie stated that the "Blackout" character does not follow the Marvel mythology of the character and admitted that they based his characterization on the look of the comic book character alone.
