Enhanced Abilities: Much of Midnight's original body has been replaced with bionic components, providing him with superhuman strength, agility and endurance.
Body Armour: Midnight’s cybernetic body affords him a high degree of protection from physical and energy attacks.
Claws: Midnight’s fingers have been fitted with claws, and by channelling energy into his claws, he can increase their damage.
Flight: Midnight’s boot jets allow him to fly.
Weapons: Midnight can fire bolts of electricity and a cryogenic beam that entraps victims in ice. Midnight's left forearm houses a Vertigo projector, which distorts a target's sense of balance, rendering them virtually helpless. He can also elongate his arms to attack non-adjacent opponents.
Jeff Wilde was the son of the original villain known as Midnight and took that codename when he went to work for his father's old adversary, Marc Spector, a.k.a. Moon Knight.
Despite Moon Knight's warning, Wilde got involved in his investigation into the would-be world-dominating organization the Secret Empire. During a battle with the Empire, Jeff took a force blast from a Secret Empire power dagger, which destroyed much of his body and nearly killed him. Moon Knight went after Jeff and tried to rescue him. Eventually he captured the Empire's headman, codenamed Number One, who insisted Midnight had died as a result of his injuries. Moon Knight stopped his search for his friend. In fact, Wilde had not died, but was made the subject of a cruel experiment. The Empire wanted to construct an army of cyborg super agents and Wilde was to be the prototype. He was used as a guinea pig to see how much he could endure both physically and mentally as his system was fitted with more and more powerful weaponry. A pain-inducing device was wired to Wilde's spinal cord to insure his cooperation and modify his behaviour should the need arise. Wilde did not wish to serve the Empire at first, but eventually, seeing their open aggression as more honest than what he had come to view as Moon Knight's false professions, he relented.
