Helio gained his superhuman powers from exposure to the mutagenic Terrigen Mist. He has superhuman agility and reflexes. He can manipulate air molecules for various effects, such as propulsion for flight at supersonic speeds, tornado-force explosions ("air-quakes"), and near-vacuums. His eyes, nose, and skin are especially adapted to resisting rigorous atmospheric conditions. Unless he is wearing weighted shoes, Helio's feet never touch the ground. Helio's hair is also lighter than air and consequently floats freely about him unless braided and weighted down.
Helio has moderate experience at hand-to-hand combat utilizing his lighter-than-air body and air manipulating attributes.
Helio possesses various laboratory technician skills.
Helio serves as a scout for Maelstrom. Alongside Maelstrom's other Minions, Gronk and Phobius, Helio was dispatched by Maelstrom to Hydro-Base to steal the Anti-Terrigen Compound. He battled Mister Fantastic, the Thing, Gorgon, Karnak, and Stingray. The Minions were captured, but then put to death by Deathurge at Maelstrom's command.
Helio's cloned body was later activated by Maelstrom, and dispatched along with the other Minions against the Avengers. The Minions confronted Iron Man and Starfox, but were coerced into helping the Avengers by Starfox and was rendered unconscious by Wonder Man. The Minions's spare clonal bodies were destroyed, and they was taken captive.
