Max Damage is character and protagonist from the comics Irredemable sequel "Incorruptible", He was a formerly villain and criminal, until the once good hero The Plutonian goes rogue, Max Damage saw the horrible things The Plutonian has made to the world, vow to becoming in a better man than him, Max Damage is also an of most perfect examples in who villain can become a hero.
Originally, Max Damage was one of the most dangerous superhuman villains.. He likely would have sold out his own grandmother to make a little cash, and one was of the Plutonian greatest foes. Along with his faithful underage sidekick Jailbait, nothing seemed to be able to keep him locked up. But when he decided to steal an object from the CDC in Sky City described by one of the scientists as "apocalypse in a jar", everything changed. He successfully stole it, and just as he was about to open the capsule and release the deadliest plague the world had ever seen, the Plutonian arrived. And the Plutonian opened up with his laser vision on the crowd of assembled bystanders, vaporizing each and every one of them. Max of course had thought that the Plutonian was there for him. But even as Max shot at him, the Plutonian seemed more interested in destroying his surroundings then going after the biggest criminal in the world. All Max received was a simple stare. And that stare would change Max's life forever.
Max possesses superhuman strength and resistance to physical damage. These abilties are based on lack of sleep thus the longer he remains awake, the stronger and tougher he becomes. His abilities allow him to go days on end with out sleep but then the downside is that his mind will eventually suffer from severe sleep deprivation and must sleep to avoid it; this is when his abilities reset. In addition, he loses his sense of touch, smell and taste as his abilities manifest an hour after he wakes up.
His durability has allowed him to withstand fission bullets, high impact falls, and even attacks from energy based beings. He is one of the only beings known to survive physical combat with the Plutonian.
Although, Max gets stronger and more invulnerable in proportion to how long he's awake, his invulnerability shuts down his physical-contact senses, making him unable to smell, taste, or feel anything. Also, sleep deprivation degrades his perception and judgment if he stays awake too long.
