|Item: Containment Suit|
|First Seen:||February 4, 2004|
The term containment suit is used to describe a number of devices which for safety reasons inhibit or block the operation of a mutant power. In most cases, these are used for energy-based powers that the wielder cannot control.
The first model of containment suit was designed by Moira MacTaggart - Phase 1, in order to help contain her son Kevin's mutation. Unfortunately, the prototype was not finished in time to save Kevin's life.
A similar technology was used for Jonothon Starsmore, to create a prosthetic jaw and bandages that would contain the immense energy he built up in his own body. Years later, a variant on Moira's design was adapted by Forge to help Alex Summers regulate his plasma-projecting abilities. Other variants have been used for similar means, such as the containment helmet for Xorn.
