Powers/Abilities: Smoke's body was composed of a semi-solid, smoke-like substance, which he could manipulate and use offensively in battle to cloud enemies' sight or provoke coughing fits by filling their lungs with smoke.
He also possessed enhanced speed and his
nearly-intangible form prevented Smoke from being harmed by most (but
not all) physical attacks.
Eyes: Red with green irises
(fb) - BTS) - Smoke
presumably was secretly recruited by X-Force team manager Coach, not
for X-Force, but
for Coach's own rather unrevealed purposes.
(X-Force I#119) - When the Orphan refused to turn over young mutant Paco Perez to the Coach, the Coach sent Smoke and Succubus to attack the Orphan for not doing as ordered. Smoke got several good hits in on the Orphan before the Orphan's X-Force teammates arrived and a battle quickly erupted between X-Force and Smoke, who had been looking forward to battling X-Force, and Succubus, with the Anarchist blasting Smoke. Orphan ultimately feigned compliance and the Coach called Smoke and Succubus off.
(X-Force I#120) - After the Coach
attempted to force himself onto the drugged X-Force member U-Go Girl,
prompting the Orphan to intervene, the Coach summoned Smoke and
Succubus to attack the Orphan once more. Smoke held the Orphan while
Succubus slashed open the Orphan's protective costume and the Coach
stabbed the Orphan with a knife but the X-Man Wolverine soon arrived to
assist the Orphan, having been secretly sent there by X-Force camerman
Doop. The Coach quickly ordered Smoke and Succubus to deal with
Wolverine but Wolverine soon slashed the semi-solid Smoke in half and
tossed his corpse off the roof of X-Force Tower while the Orphan
knocked Succubus unconscious.
