Real Name: Carlos Quinones

Identity/Class: Human mutate

Occupation: Gang member

Affiliations: Blood Syndicate

Enemies: Unknown

Known Relatives: Sara (sister, a.k.a. Flashback), Carlos Quinones, Sr (father)

Aliases: None

Base of Operations: Dakota City

First Appearance: Blood Syndicate #1 (Milestone)

Powers/Abilities: Able to turn invisible, to fly, pass through objects, and see a few seconds into the future. Fade is a wave, in that his body is "spread out" over a three second period. Therefore he is somewhere between tangible and intangible: when he strikes you, his fists and/or feet appear to pass thru your body, but three seconds later, you know he's hit you.! He also has the nasty ability of being able to enter a body and solidify himself inside it (like "The Vision" of Marvel's "Avengers").

History: Fade is a "Bang Baby" and member of the Blood Syndicate.

Comments: The brother of Flashback, Fade is homosexual, but still in the closet, scared of how his fellow gang members would treat him if they found out. He had feelings for Tech-9 (which probably went unrequited).

Thanks to Robert Thompson for clarifying Fade's powers with the "wave" description. He points out that he and his sister are linked by time as well as blood, since she is a particle and he a wave, both manipulating time in different ways. Thanks to "Moe" for providing his real name. Thanks to Danny Sichel for additional information and corrections.

CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with
