Character Details

Summary: Prodigy (David Alleyne) is a mutant with the ability to absorb knowledge and skills from those around him. Although he lost his powers during the events of House of M, Prodigy remained a super-genius as a result of absorbing so much information and perspective over the years. He served as a Young Avenger with Hulkling, Wiccan and America Chavez while dis-empowered and he came out as bisexual near the end of Kieron Gillon's classic run on the title. The young mutant eventually regained his powers through the Krakoan Ressurection protocol in which he had to face Apocalypse in battle. Prodigy is currently a regular character in the X-Factor book that was launched in July 2020 as part of "Dawn of X."
