5' 8"

Student, artist


Place of Birth

First appearance

New Mutants Vol 2 #3
(September, 2003)




Kevin Ford developed his mutant powers at an unfortunate and unlucky time. Panicking as his clothes began to decay, his father tried to calm him down and Kevin's power reduced him to dust. He always considered himself cursed. A talented artist, Kevin lived in a scrap yard for a while (killing the guard dog with his touch, naturally) and turned unwanted scrap into beautiful art.

He was found and brought to the Institute, where he met and developed a crush on Laurie Collins. However, when he decayed the skin off the cyborg Donald Pierce, Dani Moonstar was forced to stop him by showing him his worst fear - killing Laurie. In the aftermath of this, and realizing that using his power "felt right", he left the Institute.

Some months later, Dani, with the help of Emma Frost set out to bring him back to the school, to fill the sixth place on the formalized New Mutants squad, mentored by Dani. While Kevin was still angry at Dani, Emma managed to persuade him to return, and he joined the New Mutants squad under the codename Wither. Clashing with Elixir, the current object of Laurie's affections who he'd last seen as one of Pierce's Reavers, Mercury, the only person he could touch without killing, reached out to him, having developed a crush on him. Shortly after he returned to the school he was arrested by the FBI for killing his father. While the Hellions tried to "rescue" him (Mercury coming in through a window to let him know), the New Mutants tried to stop them - fearing the consequences of involving the Institute in a fight with the FBI - until the X-Men arrived and ended the fight, taking them all back to the Institute before they were discovered. This was the final straw, however, and he swapped squads with Icarus to become a Hellion.

Recently, he discovered Elixir's former relationship with Wolfsbane and released it to the school, successfully ending Josh's relationship with Laurie.

During M-Day, when most of the world's mutants lost their powers, Kevin mistakenly thought he had lost his powers also. He touched Laurie's hand making it withered and after feeling more guilty and depressed he ran away from the institute.

While Kevin was out of the Institute, he met a woman who had no where to go as him. Kevin lived with her for some time in an abandoned house, until one day the woman was killed by police, Kevin killed the police without hesitation, immediately after the woman is depicted as Selene, she invites Kevin to come into your circle, and he accepted.

Powers and Abilities


Wither is a Gamma Level mutant.

Organic Decay: ability to decay, and eventually disintegrate all forms of organic matter by touch – a power which is involuntary. His touch breaks down the binding forces between organic molecules, causing organic materials to wither and reduce to a pile of dust within a matter of seconds' exposure to his skin. This power is even more difficult to deal with due to the fact that it wants Kevin to use it. It has a "hunger", which gives Kevin a desire to use it.

  • Decayed Sight: ability to see the decay in things.

    Strength level

Average Human.


  • Kevin's identity is known to High level government officials, specifically the FBI.
