Ka-Zar is hot and so is forgiven for animal brutality (plus Zabu probably killed it anyway) Shanna is a dirty skank though and should be torn apart by animals.

Not much is known about Kevin Ellsworth. It is likely that he came to Genosha to seek refuge from persecution and was one of the lucky few to survive the Sentinel attack on Hammer Bay that devastated the island nation and left most of the mutant population dead. Alone, Kevin eventually befriended another young survivor, a mutant girl who called herself Wicked. Together the two kept each other company. Kevin who began calling himself Freakshow because of the various freakish forms he could morph into and Wicked next came into contact with Charles Xavier when he returned to Genosha to help rebuild it. Believing in Xavier's dream, Kevin agreed to help him rebuild Magneto's former paradise. Using his powers, Kevin would transform into various creatures and help clear debris and wreckage.
Sadly Kevin was one of the many mutant victims of M Day and lost his powers as a result of the Scarlet Witch's removal of the mutant gene from most mutants around the world. He briefly regained his powers as a result of Quicksilver exposing him to the Terrigen Mists but he ended up trapped in one of his monster forms unable to revert to human form and unable to speak! Luckily the effects of the Mists were only temporary and they eventually wore off, allowing Kevin to return to his human form, but unfortunately also causing him to lose his powers permanently.
Did you know?: Freakshow is a gay twink icon.

Powers: Tower has the ability to grow or shrink at will, while augmenting his strength and density.
Creator: Bob Layton and Jackson Guice.
Reckless and rebellious, Tower was born in Atlanta, Georgia. He used his mutant talents to work as a mercenary-for-hire. His first order of business was to kidnap X-Factor’s Beast. He surprised Beast and Iceman inside Vera Cantor’s apartment building. After a battle, Tower knocked Beast unconscious and took him prisoner for his boss, Dr. Carl Maddicks. He then battled the entire X-Factor team, though he was eventually defeated by Cyclops. Sensing some betrayal on Maddicks’ part, Tower exchanged the information of Beast’s location for his own freedom.
Tower later found his way into the villainous Alliance of Evil, under Apocalypse’s leadership. He quickly fought X-Factor once again, this time in attempt to capture Rusty Collins. After his failure, his teammate Frenzy took over the duty. He reappeared later with his team, having his ability augmented by the power-enhancing Michael Nowlan. Alongside Frenzy, Stinger, and Timeshadow, Tower kidnapped Nowlan’s girlfriend, Suzy, and used her as a hostage. X-Factor intervened, but with their increased powers, the Alliance of Evil was easily able to beat them.
X-Factor later tracked down the Alliance of Evil in attempt to save Nowlan. During the battle, Nowlan used his powers the absorb the enhancements back into himself, killing himself. This enabled X-Factor to defeat Tower’s group and take them to prison. Tower, on TV, later blamed X-Factor for the deaths of Michael Nowlan and his girlfriend Suzy. Tower and the others eventually broke out of prison and rioted against the Mutant Registration Act. They battled X-Factor and the New Mutants, but were inevitably defeated and taken by Freedom Force.
Tower, Frenzy, and Stinger somehow escaped prison and began working for the mysterious woman, Harness. They attacked a private school in Vermont while Harness used her son, Piecemeal, to soak up the energies in hopes of resurrecting Proteus. Tower obliterated the X-Terminators, then left. The Alliance was later found by X-Force, and Tower was defeated by Shatterstar. He was then held at gunpoint and ordered to reveal their plans.
Tower eventually met his demise in a small city in Central America. He attempted to rape a barmaid, but was slain by the X-Cutioner. However, when Selene brought back millions of dead mutants, Tower was among the group and battled Rogue and Blindfold. What his future holds is yet to be shown.
Did You Know?: Tower’s full size to grow is originally fifteen feet, but is later mentioned to be forty feet. Also, that pink is so ghay.
