Jamie Madrox Jamie was formerly unable to control the duplication process, wearing a special shock-absorbent synthetic stretch fabric costume that contained mechanisms that absorbed kinetic energy so that an army of Madroxes would not instantly appear every time he was struck.

Jamie currently wears a stylized shirt with only six large green shock-absorbent pads on the front of the torso.
