Background

Tabizi was the greatest scientist of the Congo, a child prodigy who excelled first in his home country and then in France, going on to work alongside the famous Dr Numen and Dr Kami in their research into the ubergene. Although he had no real interest in ubergetics, Dr Tabizi provided the newly formed Numen-Kami Institute with great knowledge in chemistry, as well as connections to the academia in central Africa. The Institute had targeted research in Africa to study the effects of poverty and famine in the reduced incidence of ubers, and Tabizi was asked to provide leadership at the forefront of this new branch. He agreed but believed that the research could benefit his government and its Marxist philosophy: with greater knowledge of ubers within the Congo it was reasoned that these citizens could be harnessed to provide more economic and humanitarian assistance to the country.

Tabizi used the preliminary findings to identify Congolese ubers which included himself. He was fired up with enthusiasm at the discovery and conducted a series of brave and dangerous experiments on himself in a bid to activate his dormant ubergene. In retrospect the experiments should have killed him, but instead they eventually did activate his ubergene, granting him control over the cellular structure of the world around him.

The Numen-Kami Institute had no option but to expel him after learning that he had used the Institute to help his government identify uberhumans. Tabizi was not offended, and as he developed his powers he went on to assist the New Men with many adventures during the 1980s. During his early years as a hero, Tabizi was approached by Maximum Force who opposed the Numen-Kami Institute, and offered a place on the team. Tabizi refused and single-handedly held the team of villains from destroying Brazzaville.

As Infinity, Tabizi was a well regarded and powerful uber - perhaps one of only six worldly recognised ubers from Africa and certainly a force for good (although his philosophy for what was good was heavily dependent on Marxist theory). He married his long-time girlfriend, Claire, who was the secretary for the Ministry of Defence, and had a golden era during the 1980s.

Note: Infinity began his career as a hero, but after political change in the Congo in 1990 things changed (see the entry on Infinite Man).

Unfortunately, for all the good he was doing, Tabizi was slowly succumbing to the detrimental effects of his earlier experiments. He began to have psychotic episodes, raging at the government which had abandoned Marxism in 1990. He began to believe that the Numen-Kami Institute had poisoned him and attacked the New Men on occasion, an action which led to the death of Saul Numen (a death which was temporary due to Numen's exceptional regenerative abilities).

As the Infinite Man, Tabizi became one of the most powerful adversaries for the New Men and still operates across Africa and Europe, although his motivations are shrouded in mystery even as his power levels have amplified tremendously.

Personality
During his time as Infinity, Tabizi was a dogged believer in Marxism and used his powers to promote his dream of everyone being equal. Sometimes this clashed with government goals and frequently with the goals of other governments and individuals, but Tabizi remained firm and earned a reputation for being a people's hero. He worked for the good of all. His clash with Dr Numen over the misappropriation of uberhuman research caused a fracture in their friendship, but Tabizi never regarded it as a betrayal and believed he was only doing what was best for everyone. He never did manage to apologise or understand Numen's position.

Powers

Inifinity has the ability to tap into the 'infinity force' which allows him to break down and remodel molecules and atoms. At the peak of his heroic period during the late 1980s he was able to use this force to recreate or remodel any object, although smaller objects were much easier to transform. He usually used this ability to disable weapons and defences in combat, and to create shelter, food and water during his humanitarian acts.

He was able to fly, become invisible by manipulating electromagnetic waves, emit heat beams from his eyes and had enhanced senses of sight (infrared vision) and hearing. Inifinity was also resistent to injury and possessed regenerative abilities.

Appearance

In his human form Dr Tabizi was a clean-shaven man in his thirties with tightly curled black hair. He usually wore white shirts and trousers in his work as a government scientist.

As Infinity his skin becomes a silver-blue colour and his eyes burn with a bright orange intensity. In this form he has no hair, although he does have ridges where his eyebrows should be. His clothes transform as well, and while his torso is naked he wears bright red pants with silver-grey boots and wrist bands, and has a black belt with an infinity logo.
