After drinking a beverage laced with Asgardian ingredients (by Loki), Carl "Crusher" Creel became the criminal Absorbing Man. He can absorb the material of anything he touches and turn into that material. He can spread the effect to his clothes and wrecking ball. There is no limit to what he can absorb, light, water, copper, plastic, diamond, even Thor's hammer Mjolnir.
Strange as it is, this character doesn't have any absorbing powers in game, possibly due to the developers not wanting to devote resources to such a minor character.
