Known superhuman powers: Havok is a mutant with the superhuman ability to absorb ambient cosmic energy into the cells of his body, transform it in an unknown manner, and release it as waves of energy that heat the air in their path enough to turn it into plasma.
When Havok strikes an object with the waves of intensity of hot plasma, the sudden vast jump in temperature will often cause objects to shatter, explode, or seemingly disintegrate, and an observer might therefore wrongly think that the object had been struck by a concussive force.

Havok did mention to us however, that they believe having two GPUs would be better suited to handle such duties as load balancing would be the key issue.
Havok explains that its engine is able to offload such physics operations as collision detection, which on today's general purpose GPUs are very slow to compute.
One important fact to keep in mind is that Havok is playing a significant role in the development of console technology, and has not specifically stated that the PC desktop is the ideal platform for Havok FX.
