Powers/Abilities: He-lix possessed six fully functional limbs that greatly increased his coordination and athletic ability. One of his limbs was cybernetic, another partly cybernetic. He-lix was proficient in sword-fighting, carrying two swords at all times. He also carried a small device that acted as a mind wiper. He-lix had some mystical abilities, with a gesture he could teleport himself and numerous people across great distances and dimensions. It's unclear if He-lix needs his swords or knives for more complicated spells (like Spiral).

(Howard the Duck VI#9 (fb) - BTS) - Apparently displeased by Spiral at an unrevealed moment in time, Mojo made He-lix his new teleporter. He referred to him as his "special guest star".
(Howard the Duck VI#9 (fb) - BTS) - Howard the Duck discovered that from the moment he'd arrived on Earth-616, his life had been filmed and broadcast in the Mojoverse. Furthermore, when he wasn't having an adventure, he would be played by Z'ien, one of Mojo's actors who donned a duck costume for the occasion. Actress Lea Thompson would play Howard's friend Beverly Switzler (after every scene Thompson's mind would be wiped and returned home). Once they discovered Mojo's involvement Howard, Thompson and Tara Tam immediately engaged Mojo who let Major Domo summon He-lix to assist them.
(Howard the Duck VI#9) - Arriving through one of his portals to Earth-616, He-lix was ready to fight Howard the Duck. However, the shapeshifting Tara Tam immediately fell for the handsome and muscular He-lix. Tara Tam used her abilities to match his appearance, growing four additional arms. As the fight broke out, Tam tried to give him her number, but He-lix, unsure what the digits meant, kicked her aside. However, Mojo was intrigued by the chemistry between He-lix and Tara. He had Major Domo order He-lix to return actress Lea Thompson home and wipe her mind before playing off the sexual tension with Tara Tam. He-lix blindly followed orders and teleported Lea Thompson to her home. However, Thompson was now keen on the upcoming mindwipe and immediately kicked He-lix in the face, knocking him out. She took the mindwipe device and left He-lix.
(X-Factor IV#3 - BTS) - Back on Mojoworld, He-Lix began working alongside Spiral and Ginny Guzman on the livestream show, Spiral's Showcase. This livestream was part of Mojo's newest project, Headshot TV where five livestreams battled for thousands of trillions of viewers. Spiral's Showcase was the second best viewed of the five livestreams.
(X-Factor IV#3) - While working on Spiral's Showcase, Spiral and He-Lix ran into X-Factor Investigations who'd come to Mojoworld Investigating a mutant murder. The mutants were attacked by Durkitt and his gang who believed fighting X-Factor would get them top streams, He-Lix filmed the fight with two cameras attached to his shoulders. He-Lix watched as the mutants made quick work of the fight pod after which he followed Spiral and X-Factor to Spiral's base of operations where Spiral planned to livestream X-Factor's reaction to the killed mutant's identity. Spiral then revealed it was depowered mutant Sofia Mantega (Wind Dancer) who allowed herself to get show on a Mojoverse livestream. He-Lix watched as X-Factor left to retrieve Wind Dancer's corpse.

It's possible that before his promotion to Mojo's main teleporter, He-lix was in charge of teleporting Lea Thompson to and from the set. Of course, the actual Lea Thompson starred as Beverly Switzler in the 1986 box office disaster Howard the Duck.
In a nice nod to continuity, He-lix's appearance as Mojo's chief teleporter follows after he robbed Spiral of her teleportation powers and stranded her on Earth, as seen in Uncanny X-Force II#1.
A helix is a synonym for a spiral, and with him being basically a male version of her, the spelling He-lix makes total sense.
