In their first encounter (the ruined date with Lani mentioned earlier), he engages Kap in the shape of a huge black eagle...Following his first skirmish with a super-powered villain (Black Dragon), Gabriel starts to wonder if he might actually have a weak spot.
Surmising that the ball of flame is a sentient being and that it is dying, the amnesiac superhero tries to revive it by blowing super-heated air from his lungs into it.
Sure enough, the sputtering fireball comes alive, transfoming into what appears to be a man made entirely out of fire.
No sooner does Kap knock on their doorstep than he finds himself caged by his own father. De Dios is just about ready to finish his son off with his new magnetic wave weapon, when Gabriel's girl Lani makes a timely visit, thereby discovering her boyfriend's secret ID.
Lani is able to prove Gabriel's innocence by showing the doctor a live TV news report of the Duplicate and his monsters leaving a trail of destruction across the city. De Dios also fits the earpieces on Kap's cowl with a device that enables him to withstand the monsters' soundwaves.
There, the Duplicate fights Kap by taking the form of a Giant Talking, Flying Wild Boar with Heat Vision!
The boar appears to perish in a forest fire of his own making, and it seemed that the threat of the Duplicate was finally over.
Once again, it appeared the crisis was over, but the bombardment of water would only instigate another metamorphosis.
The creature would soon return, this time as a Big Bloodthirsty Block of Ice!
As the Duplicate commands his children to lay waste to everything in sight, Kapitan Aksiyon tries to stop them.
