Cyborg. Cybernetic strength, speed, endurance and reflexes. Enhanced telescopics, computer-guided movements.
Raza is an original member of the Starjammers. The Starjammers are a group of renegade spacers who perform acts of piracy and sabotage in the tradition of old English buccaneers. The original Starjammers, Corsair, the leader, Ch'od, Hepzibah, and Raza met in the slave pits of the Shi'ar Empire. This was during the reign of D'ken the mad when atrocities of the Empire were many. Thus, when the four escaped and stole a starship, they swore vengeance on the tyrannical government that had enslaved them. They are named the Starjammers because that is the name of their ships (of which they have at least two). Soon others joined the Starjammers to fight for freedom.
The Starjammers first met the X-Men when they teamed up to fight the Royal Elite Imperial Guard, who were protecting the insane D'ken. In a roundabout way, the Starjammers were responsible for putting Lilandra on the throne, and she stopped the Empire's attempts at capturing the Starjammers.
Raza was captured and forced to bond with a Klyntar symbiote (like Venom) called Zzxz. He then became a member of the Shi'ar praetorean guard and committed horrible crimes at Vulcan's command. He was eventually captured by the Nova Corps, who used their resources to separate Raza from the symbiote.
