Powers and Abilities[edit source]
- Radiation Production: After being sent into a field of cosmic radiation while testing the X-15, Larry was exposed to a Negative Spirit and became the host of it. He then gained the ability to release his Negative Spirit out of his body while going unconscious and entering a dream.
- Longevity: The Negative Spirit is able to delay Larry's aging for over 50 years and allow his body to survive a place crash, with him exceeding the human average lifespan. Larry is also not required to eat or drink, allowing his body to remain the same status for decades.
- Temperature Immunity: With the Negative Spirit in his body, Larry is able to withstand extreme heat and cold, as shown when he overcame experiments on his body after the accident.
- Astral Projection: Larry was able to briefly project his astral form out of his body and enter the Tunnel of Souls.
Former Powers[edit source]
- Inter-Dimensional Travel: Larry's Negative Spirit is able to bring him and the team to and away from the White Space.
- Flight: When Larry decided to leave the Doom Manor, the Negative Spirit created an energy field around him and allowed him to fly.
- Atmospheric Adaption: Larry is able to breathe at a high altitude.
- Expert Pilot: As a pilot in the Air Force, Larry learnt skills on flying an aircraft.
- Cooking: Larry is the chef of the Doom Manor, preparing every meal for the inhabitants.
- Power Instability: Prior to communicating with the Negative Spirit, Larry was unable to control its release from his body. Despite it now having a mutual understanding with Larry, the radiation emitted from his body still remains the same.
Current Equipment[edit source]
- Bandages: In 1966, Larry arrived at the Doom Manor and was given a room as well as the bandages to protect others from his radiation.
- Goggles: Alongside his bandages, the goggles are able to protect others from radiation.
