The Blizzard's abilities are derived from the costume: the micro circuitry of the costume is highly advanced and enables the wearer to freeze any moisture in the air around the wearer into unusually hard ice to form various projectiles and shields. It is capable of shooting small ice missiles or bullets with sufficient force and density to cut steel. The wearer can also make metal brittle by coming into direct contact with it. The wearer is effectively shielded from sub-zero temperatures the suit generates. It can also project enough cold to lower the temperature in a room from 68 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit in 30 seconds. However, the finite supply of water and moisture that the suit is able to take into its reserves is not sufficient enough to create giant ice bridges such as the mutant Iceman is capable of creating.
The current costume has been improved upon by the members of the Thunderbolts formerly known as the Beetle and the Fixer. It can essentially emulate most of the powers originally wielded by Iceman, including the spontaneous generation of Ice Bridges for extremely swift and manueverable transportation (it does not give the wearer thermal vision). The limits of this costume are not yet known.
Donald Gill (the second Blizzard) was a criminal who was given the costume of original Blizzard, or a duplicate thereof, by agents of Justin Hammer. He was occasionally partnered with the Beetle and Blacklash (also known as Whiplash) as the "B-Team".
Although the replacement Iron Man (James Rhodes, later codenamed War Machine) convinced the Blizzard to leave Hammer's service and attempt to reform, he eventually returned to crime and to his old employer. Much later, Abner Jenkins (the Beetle, now codenamed MACH-1) convinced him to join his new team of Thunderbolts. He is currently trying his best to reform. Very meek for a former supervillain, he has some trouble asserting himself.
Was turned into an Inhuman in Infinity: Heist #2.
