Aireo can become lighter than air and thus fly at will.
Aireo is an Inhuman who can become lighter than air and thus fly at will. Aireo is one of several criminals that the Inhuman ruler Black Bolt finds guilty of treason and is banished from the Hidden Land of the Inhumans to another dimension. When the Hulk attacks Lockjaw, he teleports the Hulk to the dimension where the evil Inhumans have been banished. Maximus the Mad, brother of Black Bolt, appears and recruits them all as part of his military takeover of Att-ilan, and teleports them all back to the Hidden Land. Maximus seeks a device created by the ancient Inhuman scientist Romnar, which can absorb people. The evil Inhumans use the Hulk to gain access to the device, and build a ray gun to use it to attack Black Bolt. The evil Inhumans squabble over the device for their own ideals of conquest, and Black Bolt is able to defeat them. To try to regain Black Bolt's favor, the evil Inhumans try to stop the Hulk as he rampages through Atillan, but only Black Bolt is able to stop the Hulk.
When Maximus captures the Fantastic Four and the Inhuman Royal Family, he selects Aireo as one of his loyal guard to serve him. When the prisoners escape, they defeat Maximus and the Inhumans loyal to him, but are unable to stop Maximus and his followers from escaping in a rocket.
Maximus takes over the island of Costa Salvador with his band of evil Inhumans, using a robot that puts people into a hypnotic trance, and intends to slowly take over the world with more of these robots. The Hulk arrives on the island, and the evil Inhumans attack him; when the military arrives, Maximus convinces the Hulk to join him. The Hulk attacks the army, causing them to retreat, and the evil Inhumans begin arguing over what to do with him as they fear his aggression. As they begin fighting with each other, Maximus calms them. When the Hulk smashes Maximus' robot, the Inhumans flee through a secret tunnel. As the Hulk and the military square off to fight, Maximus and the Inhumans blast out of the ground in an escape ship that flies off into the sky, providing a distraction for the Hulk to escape.
The evil Inhumans assist Maximus as he Maximus produces a couple of missiles to make it look as though the Fantastic Four fired them at the Great Refuge; after Black Bolt destroys the missiles, he declares war on the Fantastic Four. Black Bolt suspects Maximus may be behind the missile attack and dispatches Triton to check up on him, who discovers the missile silo and abducts Maximus to return to the Great Refuge for judgment.
When the Silver Surfer crash lands in the Hidden Land of the Inhumans he is attacked the evil Inhumans led by Maximus, who succeeds in making the Surfer believe that the Inhumans as a whole are responsible for the attack.
Aireo some time later engaged in a crime spree.
Aireo later takes the name Skybreaker and became a member of the super-villain group Force of Nature, coming into conflict with the New Warriors. The two groups fight in the Amazon rain forest and later, in the fictional country of Trans-Sabal. Force of Nature acted as super-powered enforcers of the extremist environmental group 'Project: Earth'.
Skybreaker and two of his teammates, Aqueduct and Terraformer, are incarcerated in the super-powered prison called 'The Vault'. Ironically it was a member of the New Warriors, Vance Astrovik who fought for the rights of all Vault prisoners to be treated more humanely; for example he convinces the warden to let the plant-obsessed Terraformer to have a small plant. This defuses a potential riot.
