Powers/Abilities: The Data Pirate is at least a mid-level engineer, able to develop a(n extremely ugly) suit that gave him flight, slight telekinesis and energy blasts through the electrical battery on it's back.

History: (2099 Unlimited#8) - While watching an auction of twen-cen items, the Data Pirate became disgusted with the way the rich lived. His pregnant wife then called him in to dinner, but while the rest of his family argued over finances, the Pirate became even more disillusioned with the way his life turned out. Reaching for the suit he had created, the Data Pirate promised that the rich who keep the poor down will pay.

Crashing the twen-cen auction, the Data Pirate used his electro-telekinesis to steal the items up for bid. Miguel O'Hara, who was there to buy his friend Xina a thank you gift, changed into his Spider-Man costume and chased after the Data Pirate, who gloated the whole way. Easily tracked by Spider-Man via the electric trail he left behind, the Data Pirate returned home, where his family gave their dissapproval of his actions. Spider-Man popped in through his window and easily avoided the electrical beams shot at him, then cracked open an eight-ball, spilling the water into the trail left behind by one of the Pirate's blasts. As the Data Pirate was electrocuted, it was revealed that his family were nothing more than holograms all along. Spider-Man took the items from the auctions and went to return them, while the Pirate sat in his apartment, watching his malfunctioning "family."

Comments: Created by Terry Kavanaugh and Max Douglas

It's possible that the Data Pirate's family were actually replicas of his own real, dead family, but that was never confirmed.
