ability to transform a person into bits of electronic information, in effect digitizing them. This allows him to then transmit said bits over phone lines to another location, where he can then re-assemble the bits into people. A transmission could take only the people themselves, minus clothes and weapons, or it could be modulated to include accessories up to full battle armor and skycycles.
As a member of the Press Gang, Pipeline was exempt from the mutate process that his fellow mutants were subjected to, and served his country faithfully. However, after the fall of the Genoshan government, and the revelation that the Sugar Man was behind the mutate process, Pipeline agreed to work with the rebels to bring peace to Genosha. Later, when Magneto was ceded control of the island by the U.N., Pipeline was invited to stay and help his new ruler consolidate his power. So far he has stayed put, although he doesn't like Magnus much. However, Pipeline did oppose Magneto's attempt to gain control of Carrion Cove, so whether Magneto has thrown him out as a result is unknown. In addition, it is unknown at the moment whether Pipeline was on Genosha when it was destroyed.
As a result of the Scarlet Witch's actions in the "House of M" crossover, nearly all of the mutants in the entire world have been stripped of their mutant abilities.... including Pipeline.
