Base of Operations: Mobile across the multiverse

First Appearance: Captain Britain #3 (Marvel UK, March 1985)

Powers/Abilities: Gatecrasher is able to scan people and analyse their species, origins and powers. He can dampen psi-powers. He is also capable of extra-dimensional teleportation, and able to transport groups of others along with him.

History: Yap is a member of the interdimensional mercenaries "Gatecrasher's Technet". He usually rides around on Gatecrasher's shoulders, and calls her "Mother", much to her denial and irritation - though when she feared they were close to death she did display an almost matriarchal fondness for him. For his part, he is intensely loyal to her, and stayed with her even during the times when the rest of the team were angered by her poor management decisions and abandoned her. He is not a combatant, instead acting as the team's scanner, briefing them on their opponents' powers, and as their transportation.
