Vincente can shift his body into becoming solid, liquid or gas. He can also gain the properties of any substance he touches.
First appearing alongside the vampiric mutant Emplate, Vincente belonged to a group of evil mutants which—only in advertising—was known as the Hellions. Vincente battled Generation X alongside Gayle Edgerton, Murmur, D.O.A. and Bulwark.
On the team's first strike against the young mutants, Vincente hid himself inside of a pot of soup at a restaurant. When M opened the lid to smell it, he entered her lungs and tried to suffocate her. He succeeded in knocking most of the team unconscious, but not before M let out a telepathic cry for help. Her cry was heard by Bishop of the X-Men, who came to her rescue.
Oddly enough, the mutant from the future had a connection to Emplate, as a group of parasitic mutants calling themselves the Emplates plagued Bishop's future timeline. This gave him the incentive he needed to rescue the teens in danger. Vincente tried to attack Bishop in the same manner he did Generation X, but the mutant's natural ability of absorption began to digest Vincente in his mist form. He was able to escape with his life, and left with his teammates after they were beaten.
Vincente made one more appearance with Emplate's gang (this time sporting new members) when the villain tried once again to reclaim Penance as his possession. Vincente had learned the ability to make his vapor form poisonous, but that didn't stop him from being beaten yet again. After his ignominious defeat, he never appeared in the Main Marvel Universe again. His status after the recent depowering of the earth's mutant population has yet to be revealed.
