(New Mutants II#7 - BTS) - After manifesting his powers, Viskid enrolled at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.

(New Mutants II#7) - Viskid was seen walking through one of the Institute's corridors when Sofia and David were on their way to get breakfast. The next day, Viskid was present at a special assembly where the Institute's headmaster Charles Xavier informed the student body about last night's explosion (caused by Magma who awoke from a coma due to Josh and Julian's intervention), Xavier preached there was more to becoming a hero than mere bravery.

(New Mutants II#9) - Viskid was seen following history classes from his teacher Danielle Moonstar. When the bell rang he made his way to the cafeteria for lunch.

Comments: Created by Nunzio DeFilippis, Christina Weir (writers), Carlo Barberi (pencils), Juan Vlasco (inks).

In issue 9, Viskid was erroneously colored the same pink as fellow student Gelatin, although he can be recognized by the yellow X-logo on his body

Viskid was part of the Xavier's Institute entry in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe HC#13, it was here that his real name and codename have been revealed.

His codename is a play on viscid:
1. cohesive and sticky; glutinous; viscous
2. (Botany) (esp of a leaf) covered with a sticky substance
Given his and Caput's codename originating from Latin words, it might be speculated (and it is just speculation) that they could have been on Beast's Exemplar's squad, as Hank is the most likely of the X-Men to suggest codenames derived from Latin.
