Dubbed the Hellhound, Caliban was a former Morlock who followed Apocalypse in order to gain revenge on humanity. A giant albino with enhanced strength and the ability to enthrall others through fear, as well as detect mutants, he searched out new followers for Apocalypse, while those who resisted were left to his cruel sport. Killed by Pete Wisdom.

Formerly known as Major Abraham Lincoln Kieros, a US Army Ranger whose mutant power of concussive explosion emerged during a firefight in Somalia, crippling him and leaving him an invalid in an iron lung. Apocalypse gave him the chance to strike back against the whole of humanity, whom he blamed for using him and discarding him. A physical powerhouse, he acted as the general of Apocalypse's armies, being enhanced with an empathic "fog of war", enabling him to whip nearby bystanders into a hostile rage. Currently in SHIELD custody.
