History:
(Marvel Comics Presents#97/4) - An unnamed man hung around at the Bar With No Name wearing the famous Cyclone outfit. A fight broke out between other villains because Ringmaster was seemingly cheating in a poker game. The new Cyclone took the chance to show his fighting skills and attacked Ringmaster. Angar the Screamer used his power to knock all villains out and Cyclone was no exception. He never learned that Impossible Man posing as an Ace of Spades was responsible for the fight.

(Silver Sable#21 (fb) - BTS) - Cyclone got an armor with cool powers from Justin Hammer and a job as one of Hammer's agents.

(Silver Sable#21) - Cyclone was sent out together with some other agents (Afterburner, Beetle, Blacklash, Blizzard, Boomerang, Spymaster) to help Latisha's thugs against Silver Sable and her Wild Pack. Together with his partners he surrounded Sable and her team.

(Silver Sable#22) - Cyclone used his cyclone producing gloves to throw rubble at Sable and her team. Sable's Intruders entered the scene and Cyclone tried his best to stay in the fight. Suddenly Latisha's gang turned against Hammer's agents who were there to help them. Cyclone fought back and stayed quiet when his partner Afterburner tried to get a conversation started. Cyclone retreated with Beetle and the others when Larry Arnold started shooting at them.

(OHotMU 2006#3 - BTS) - Stevens dropped out of sight, reportedly killed in a skiing accident.

Is the character from Marvel Comics Presents#97/4 and Silver Sable#21-22 the same guy?

Fun Info on Cyclone

In all his appearances Cyclone didn't speak one single word and his teammates even made fun of him because of this.

Authors made fun of him too:

Kurt Busiek once joked that the Cyclone from Silver Sable died in a skiing accident.
--Prime Eternal
And the joke made it into OHotMU 2006#3.

Authors? Teammates? Can it get worse? The Impossible Man probably had a good laugh too and Angar the Screamer probably couldn't hold back either. Poor, poor guy!

His real name was revealed in OHotMU 2006#3.
