Explanation of the conversion: I based Paiboks powers on his few appearances in the Fantastic Four series and his writeup in the Marvel Universe handbook.

History: Like his fellow officer in the Skrull military, the Super-Skrull, Paibok was bionically engineered to grant him a number of super powers. Although it was never mentioned who, if anyone, his powers are immitating, they seem close to certain members of the X-Men. Paibok was the Skrull that came up with the idea to kidnap Alicia Masters during the Secret Wars and replace her with a Skrull operative. This operative, Lyja, would be successful for several years.

When fineally discovered, the Fantastic Four made their way to the asteroid where the real Alicia was being kept. Once there they faced Paibok (Fantastic Four #358).

Paibok has confronted the Fantastic Four a number of times from then on. He has occasionally found allies like Devos, Huntara, Klaw, and Lyja, but these alliances never last, and he is ultimately loyal only to the Skrull empire.

Powers: The Power-Skrull is a masterpiece of Skrull bionic engineering. He seems to have the ability to immitate the some of the powers of the X-Men Colossus, Havok, Iceman and Storm. He can turn into organic metal, increasing his armor and strength, fire plasma blasts from his hands, form ice bonds and shoot ice bolts, fly and shoot lightning. He only seems to be able to immitate two sets of power at any one time. Paibok's engineered powers require painful daily treatments to maintain or they fade away. He has the equipment on his ship to give himself these treatments.

Like all Skrulls Paibok is a shapeshifter. He can change his appearance, but so far has limited himself to humanoids of about the same size. Like all Skrulls he has a photographic memory, can go into a death-like trance and heals quickly from damage and can slowly regrow limbs,
