Abner Krill, also known as Polka-Dot Man, is a criminal who can grow multi-colored polka-dots from his body and can turn them into weapons. He is also a member of the second Task Force X strike team sent to Corto Maltese.
At some point, Abner Krill gained the metahuman ability to generate multi-colored discs from his body, each color representing a different weapon, such as explosives, a deadly blade, or a snare. He tried to use these abilities to become the supervillain known as Polka-Dot Man, but he was captured and taken to Belle Reve, where he became a member of Task Force X.
Polka-Dot Man doesn't seem very confident in his metahuman abilities, and often looks nervous in battle. His actions are likely very spur-of-the-moment, and he is learning new things about, or is still being impressed by, his powers.
