Graymalkin has a number of abilities that wax and wane with exposure to light. His powers appear to strengthen with a lack of light, and he is weaker with exposure to light, though he is not powerless. Beast discovered Jonas' powers activated when he was buried alive and he went into suspended animation for over 200 years. His primary ability is super-human strength. He possesses night vision allowing him to see clearly in total darkness. He has also shown enhanced agility. Beast lists invulnerability and longevity as additional abilities, this allowing him to survive the pressure and cold extremes of being buried alive for 200 years without food or water. 


Other Info 
Jonas Graymalkin was born in the late 18th century. At the age of sixteen, Jonas realized he was gay. Meeting another boy in his family's barn one day, he was discovered by his father. A very religious man, Jonas' father believed his son to be an abomination. After beating Jonas nearly to death, his father then tried to bury him in the nearby woods. However, being burried actually triggered Jonas' mutant powers which was the reason he survived for the next 200 years. (Jonas in the 18th century is shown in the third picture posted.)

After the last Sentinel attack that destroyed the Xavier Institute, Graymalkin was found in the the remains. When we awoke, he was greeted by Cipher. After meeting some of the Young X-Men, and even joining them in battle, Jonas was recruited into the Young X-Men team.  (To learn about the above highlighted characters, just click on their names.)

Soon after this, Beast performed a genetic test on Graymalkin and discovered that he was an collateral ancestor of Professor Charles Xavier. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about the characters.)

At one point, Jonas opened up to a fellow X-Man, Anole, and told him his life story. Anole then comforted Graymalkin stating that it wasn't his fault, nor his father's, because of the lack of tolerance 200 years ago. (To learn about Anole, just click on this highlighted name above.)

With surprising ease, Graymalkin adjusted to the 21st century well. Despite his inexperience in battle, however, Graymalkin continued to work as a full member of the Young X-Men. He even assisted in the fight against Krakoa, in the defeat of the Y-Men, and the battle with The Neo on the Golden Gate Bridge.

Later on, Graymalkin fought alongside the X-Men in San Francisco during the Skrull's "Secret Invasion." (To learn about the Skrulls and/or their Secret Invasion, just click on their names above.)

More recently, on the island nation of Utopia, Graymalkin continued his combat training along with Anole, Rockslide, and Dagger. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn more about them.)
