Status: In the hospital in a coma
During the fight, he tried to inject Trollsta with an enhanced version of the drug. Guyson deflected the needle back into him. He gained super strength for a short time, but after he was beaten he went into a violent and sudden relapse. He was almost killed, and remains hospitalized to this day. Afterwords, The Guardians were told that Cortex is normally immune to any type of drug or poison. No one is sure why he was affected by this.
