COMIC-BOOK CREDENTIALS: Appeared in Acclaim Comics’ Sliders comic, based on the TV series of the same name.
Erm... the Sliders comics didn’t last forever, so it’s not an immaculate CV.
SKILLS/ABILITIES: Access to dimensional travel, Masters Degree in physics....so a bit of a clever sod really.
REASON FOR RECRUITMENT: Quinn invented dimensional travel which he referred to as ‘sliding’, which allowed him to open up vortexes to alternate Earth’s. With access to alternative versions of Earth, Quinn could effectively travel to different Earth’s where hypothetically speaking he could recruit teammates. Ok it sounds a bit of a stretch (but go with me on this one), let’s say that one version of Earth, was the one seen in the pages of Marvel Comics, well with dimensional travel Quinn could transport himself to that Earth and recruit Wolverine, should he wish to. Now admittedly Quinn’s access to dimensional travel doesn’t allow for journeys back through time, so recruiting from the past is a little bit tricky, but who’s to say that the ancient world of one comic book company isn’t really just existing at the same time period as Quinn’s home world? Yeah I know it’s a stretch, but this is The Comics Code, not National Geographic, so back off!
POTENTIAL RISK: The device Quinn uses to travel through the vortex isn’t known as a timer for nothing, so in order for him to make sure he doesn’t miss his window of opportunity when travelling from one place to another, he needs to move pretty quickly whilst recruiting, otherwise the vortex will close. As well as that the timer itself is a tricky little bugger as Quinn doesn’t really have much control as to where he can go, so he’s kind of winging it if truth be told.
CHANCES OF SURVIVAL: Slim...very slim; however once he’s recruited a few teammates as long he shows a few of them how to activate the timer he’s no longer indispensable. What?! I’m just being realistic. He’s a human being for cripes sake, so it’s not like he has any superpowers!
IN EVENT OF DEATH BEFORE MISSION... LIKELIHOOD OF REPLACEMENT WITH WOLVERINE: Zero chance as Wolverine doesn’t have access to dimensional travel.
