Powers/Abilities: Quaid used a Mark III Blizzard suit. It was an armored bodysuit with temperature-lowering microcircuited cryogenic units and thermally insulated padding to protect the wearer from cold. The suit is lined with networks of tubing, circulating Freon coolant and a limited water supply, which can form ice. The suit's gauntlets reduce temperatures to subzero levels within seconds. Blizzard can create ice in a variety of forms to protect himself or use offensively in combat. Riding on an ice slide, creating ice walls, ice spikes, ice blasts and encasing others in ice are feats Blizzard was shown to be capable of.

(All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z#2) - Justin Hammer hired a minor thug to replace Donny Gill, who was back in prison. He equipped him with a Mark III Blizzard suit.
(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#21) - Blizzard was one of the operatives Justin Hammer sent to Bevery Hills to help Latisha's thugs against Silver Sable and her Wild Pack. Together with his partners he surrounded Sable and her team.
(Silver Sable and the Wild Pack#22) - Blizzard tried to blast Battlestar with ice, but Battlestar jumped over it. Blizzard's next attack was thwarted by Crippler, who melted Blizzard's ice spikes with a flame thrower. When the Intruders joined the battle Fin charged Blizzard, who stopped him in his tracks by encasing his legs in ice. Blizzard also hit Man-Eater with an ice blast to the face. When Morris and his crew turned on Hammer's agents Blizzard showed no mercy and killed Morris with a massive ice spike through the chest. Latisha tried to shoot Blizzard for murdering her ally, but Blizzard blocked her bullets with an ice wall. Blizzard retreated with the rest of Hammer's agents when Larry Arnold started shooting at them.
(All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z#2) - Hammer got rid of Quaid for being a liability.
