Hafţór Júlíus Björnsson APPEARANCE: POWERS/ABILITIES:
Superhuman Strength: Cain's strength is vast. Simply put there is no known way to actually fully measure the full extent of his strength, and there may well be no limit as he seems to be as strong as necessary. He's knocked down a cosmic entity named "The Stranger" who is a match for Galactus and was 50 feet tall at the time. He's tangled with Hulk and Thor multiple times, and punched through dimensions.
Superhuman Durability: Cain's durability matches his strength and he can handle physical assaults from pretty much anybody, while giving as good as he gets.
Superhuman Stamina: Cain is powered solely by magic, so he has an unlimited amount of stamina, able to exert himself and fight as long as necessary. Furthermore, as he is fully sustained by magic, he is immortal, has no need to eat, sleep, breathe, or drink(although he still can and does), and is immune to poisons and diseases as well.
Superhuman Speed: Once Cain gets moving, he can really build up some speed. His top speed isn't known, but he can run at least
600mph, although he usually has no reason to go that fast.
Mystical Powers: While Cain focuses almost primarily on physical combat, he does possess additional powers granted by Cyttorak. For example, the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak is a spell that binds people in nearly unbreakable metal shackles made of the same material as his own arm bands and helmet. Beyond that, he can fire off mystical beams of energy and more, although he mainly just blasts things.
Healing Factor: Should he be injured, Cain is capable of healing at an extraordinary rate. Once he was flayed down to a skeleton, and his anger actually kept him alive.
Force Field: This is more for convenience than actual need. Cain possesses the ability to erect a forcefield and expand it outward to cover his body or even a group around him. He mainly uses it in case he doesn't want something to touch him, but it proves useful if he wants to protect friends and teammates.
Unstoppable Force: As the Avatar of Cytorrak, Cain is the physical embodiment of Raw Power, and one of his greatest abilities is unstoppable momentum. Once he begins moving, there is almost nothing that can stop him. He can be slowed down, redirected, and momentarily halted. But once he begins on a path, the only person who can truly stop him, is him.WEAKNESSES:
Cain only has two known weaknesses. The first and foremost being telepathy and psionic intrusion. He has absolutely no defense from telepathic assault, and any decent telepath can take him out of a fight or turn him to their side with ease if they make it past his helmet. His second is ironically himself. A well known fact is that no outside force can stop the Juggernaut once he gets going. He can be slowed, but never stopped. If someone or something could slow him, and then suddenly move...well unstoppable momentum certainly has it's drawbacks.HISTORY:
Cain was born to Dr. Kurt Marko and Marjorie Marko. For the first few yeers of his life, everything was tolerable, but eventually his parents divorced, and with his father being too busy for work, and his mother off doing her own thing, he was sent to Boarding School. He got expelled from each and everyone one. And by the time he came back, his mother had died and his father had remarried, and was now living with his new wife and her son in a mansion out in Westchester. Turns out dear old dad married his partners wife after he died during a research expedition. Sharon was loaded though, and Cain had a pretty good idea that that was why little Charlie got better treatment than him. Besides treating Charles like a king, Cain's father beat him mercilessly, which of course caused him to hate Charles even more. After it was discovered that Kurt only married Sharon for her money, she died from a broken heart.
Now Cain was stuck with his deadbeat dad, his step-brother, and a shitload of cash. During his early teen years, Cain got in an argument with his father over money of all things, and during that argument he accused Kurt of being behind his partners supposed accident. It turns out that it really was an accident, and while Kurt didn't cause it, he didn't save Xavier either. that got a rise out of dad, and another beating ensued. Finally, Cain got fed up and he tossed a few vials against the wall of his dad's lab; that was a bad idea though, since several volatile chemicals mixed and caused an explosion. Kurt saved Cain and Charles(who'd been eavesdropping at the door) from the fire, but died in the process.
He died from smoke inhalation, and his last words were a warning to Charles about his son. Even to the end he never had a nice thing to say about Cain. So unsurprisingly, Cain could care less that he was dead. Now it was just Cain and Charles, in a big ole house and a bank account with more cash in it than either of them could ever spend. One day Cain got so pissed he got into a fight with Charles, but his little brother could read his mind and knew every move before he made it.
Needless to say, Cain's hate hadn't died down any, so he took all of the money left to him in the will and left. Well what happens when a guy full of rage and hatred is out on the streets; usually he turns to crime. In this case though, it was legal. All Cain was ever good at was fighting, and even with more money than he could count, he was bored and restless. He joined a mercenary operation and ended up in a third world gulag when the revolutionaries who hired him suffered a crushing defeat.
While imprisoned, he met a man named Black Tom Cassidy who revealed himself as a mutant and helped Cain escape. They became the best of friends. Years later Cain ended up serving in Korea, and in a seemingly cruel twist of fate, he and Charles were placed in the same unit. Things were going great until Command sent them into an obvious ambush just to try and gain some ground. They were outnumbered and outgunned; Cain had never been stupid, and he knew staying meant death.
He deserted and Charlie being the goodie goodie that he was, went to bring him back. Cain found himself in a huge cave that housed a temple of some sort. Little did he know it was the temple of Cyttorak. Once inside, a gigantic ruby drew his attention. If he made it back, he could sell that thing and get millions at least, as it seemed flawless and was bigger than his fist. It rested on the lap of an idol of Cyttorak, and Charles found him just as he lifted the gem and read the inscription on the altar.
"Whosoever touches this gem shall possess the power of the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak. Henceforth, you who read these words shall become forevermore a human Juggernaut!" A blinding flash of ruby light filled the temple, and when it faded, Cain stood transformed. Bigger, more powerful than ever. Before Charles even got to say anything, a mortar strike shook the cavern and caused the entire cave complex to collapse. Charles made it out, but Cain was buried under several thousand tons of rock and debris.
It took a few years, but he eventually dug his way out and hitched a cargo container back to the US. The first thing he did was seek out his brother, and he fought through all of his X-Men to get to him. He was the Juggernaut, and they couldn't stop him. But the Human Torch melted a portion of his helmet, and when they got it off, Charles put him in a psychically induced coma.
A series of events after that trapped Cain in the Crimson Cosmos, where simply by existing and being the avatar of Cyttorak, he unlocked mystical secrets that he never knew about his powers. While attempting to free himself, he wound up in Nightmare's dimension of dreams and helped Dr. Strange save the cosmic entity known as Eternity. After that, he attacked Eternity to force him to send him home, but was instead banished back to the Crimson Cosmos.
Eventually a scientist accidentally sent Hulk into the Crimson Cosmos and Juggernaut traded places with him in a specially designed Hulkbuster Cell. The machine malfunctioned and Hulk came back, and along with Juggernaut they escaped the facility. Only when Cain started terrorizing the people, he and Hulk got into a brawl.
Hulk caught him off guard and grabbed his helmet, and the force snapped the helmet off and sent Cain flying. Before he could come back for a rematch, Charles found him and once again put him into a coma. Later, he was freed and after a series of adventures ended up in New York where he battled Spider-Man. The web head couldn't beat him, but he tricked him into a deep pit of wet cement.
It took Cain months to tunnel his way out and he ended up causing immense structural damage under the East River(he'd later repair it as Captain Universe). Over the years Cain has been through a lot; constant fighting with the X-Men, crimes a plenty, he's even fought Gods and Monsters in Hulk and Thor several times.
He went good for a while and fought with the X-Men and tried to kill his best friend Black Tom while undercover(for the X-Men) when his mutation went out of control and he killed a little boy named Sammy who Cain had befriended. He stopped a plot by Cyttorak and the other members of the Octessence to take over the world, fought and became Captain Universe, was possessed by a demon and ran rampant through multiple dimensions and more.
Right before Charles death, Cain got into a scrap with the X-Men. He lost his helmet and was knocked out by Charlie. He was then transported to Ryker's Island and put into a cell designed by his brother. He was kept in a psionically induced coma, and beyond that he was completely immobilized in an inertial liquid to keep him from moving even in his sleep. Talk about overkill.PERSONALITY:
Cain is a hard man, and that's from having a hard life. As a child, his father abused him, while at the same time treating his step-brother Charles like a prince. He eventually found out that his old man did it to suck up to Charlie's mom and get the money she inherited from her husband when he "died". It didn't make it any better, but the money he got when his own father died took away the sting...just a bit.
The constant abuse and neglect had two results; one being that Cain is for the most part mean as a defense mechanism. The other being that he has an intense hate for Xavier and anyone associated with him; well he used to. Recently he's finally come to terms with the fact that none of the pain in his youth was Charles fault, while all of the pain he caused Charlie was his own.
He respects strength more than anything, seeing as that's what he's all about; so if you can show him some kind of strength, he'll give you the time of day and not look down on you. If he thinks your a pansy, well you got a couple chances to prove him wrong.EQUIPMENT:
Crimson Cosmos Armor: Through a mental command, Cain can summon his mystical armor at any time around his body. The metal is made of an unknown composition, but it's found only in the Crimson Cosmos Dimension where Cyttorak makes his home. It is incredibly durable, and on the chance it is damaged, Cain can repair it with his magic.
Crimson Helmet: The highly identifiable helmet that Cain wears on his head is more than just a cosmetic choice, the metal wreaks hell on psionics of all kinds and even the most powerful telepath can't get through. It's also very durable, but can be damaged and destroyed.KNOWN ENEMIES:
Charles Xavier/X-Men, Hulk, Thor, Black Tom Cassidy(All formerly), The Serpent, D'Spayre, Nightmare, Exemplars, Cyttorak, Spider-Man, etc...
