Powers/Abilities: Like all members of the Morituri, Marathon's strength and endurance are superhuman. He was the strongest member of the original Morituri squad, and his strength grew the longer he refrained from using it, charging up as time passed. He also survived atmospheric re-entry without protective gear on at least one occasion.

History: One of the original team of Morituri, Marathon became obsessive in his battle with the enemy after the death of Snapdragon. When Vyking died on a mission to attack the Horde in orbit, Marathon attempted to sacrifice himself destroying a Horde command vessel, only to survive the fall back to Earth. Shortly afterwards he succeeded in killing himself when he took out an even larger Horde ship in the orbit of Jupiter.
