Carl “Crusher” Creel was one of the “street kids” living in Christopher Park who frequented the Stonewall Inn when the riots broke out in 1969. Loki granted him the power to absorb any material he touched so that he could keep the X-Men occupied while he battled his brother Thor. Creel was dissipated by the X-Men during the confrontation at the New Paltz Wine Festival, though it’s likely that he’ll be able to reassemble himself and reappear at some point.
