James Arthur Madrox
Duplication: Madrox can create exact duplicates of himself. Each time he is struck or gets a sudden jolt he creates one but he has mastered his ability to such extend that he can now create dupes at will as well (though he must still strike himself for a minimum amount of kinetic energy). Madrox absorbs this kinetic energy to form the dupe and he suffers no damage from blunt or force attack. He can create up to 40 dupes. The dupes are totally independend but usually work well together. When one dupe is killed Madrox must make a Psyche FEAT or fall unconscious for 1-10 rounds. Madrox may absorb his dupes back to himself but some traumatic experiences may force a dupe to become totally independend so it cannot be absorbed anymore.
Healing: When Madrox absorbs duplicates he gets the average of their health, so this can be used to heal himself.
Serial Immortality: When the original Jamie is killed a Psyche FEAT must be made, if this is successful one of his dupes becomes the ‘real’ Madrox.
Suit: Good protection, which prevents unwanted duplicate creation.

James Arthur “Jamie” Madrox is a mutant with the superhuman ability to create duplicates of himself and then absorb them back into himself at will.
Madrox was exposed to the Legacy Virus while performing CPR on an infected mutant. When the mutant Haven attempted to cure him, she accidentally killed him. Madrox knew that as long as he stayed split into separate bodies, the virus would be contained in one body and not duplicate into the others. When the original body died, the shock of his death caused a memory loss. Eventually Madrox regained a few bits of memory that caused him to wander around in Washington, D.C., searching out X-Factor. Dr. Valerie Cooper spotted Madrox but he vanished before she could confront him.
It is not known how he was discovered but an unknown government agency found Madrox and offered him protection. In exchange Madrox would train to be the ultimate secret agent–an entire army in one man. More of Madrox’s memory started to come back but the agency kept him away from X-Factor. This caused Madrox to reevaluate his choice to stay with this new agency when he realized that he no longer had the power to make that choice. Before Madrox could figure out a way to escape, Havok appeared and helped Madrox escape. Havok then offered Madrox a chance to join the new Brotherhood. Madrox declined his offer. Havok left after warning Madrox that the government would not stop looking for him. Later, the government sent X-Factor to hunt Madrox down. When X-Factor discovered that they had captured one of their own, they did not turn him over to the government but rather gave them Mystique, who had used her ability to shapeshift to take on the form of Madrox.
Madrox remains undecided as to whether to return to X-Factor or to join Havok with the Brotherhood, but has offered his services to both parties.
