Airtight has always been the unrepentant practical joker. He dabbles in all sorts of pranks. Itching powder, whoopee cushions, plastic barf, everything you could ever think of and more. Such actions would have tested the patience of his teammates to their very limits. He would probably have been thrown out long ago if it weren't for the fact that he's the only one who volunteers to suit up without hesitation for the missions that would make one's skin crawl. Cobra continuously comes up with ever more lethal concoctions and the fact that any one of them could be so corrosive enough to eat through that suit of his never seem to bother him at all.
Airtight specializes in CBR (chemical, biological and radiological) science. An interest nurtured by his strange childhood. As a boy, his obsessions include testing his limits in offbeat ways (he could hold his breath the longest), collecting plastic dinosaurs and thinks peanut butter and tomato go together perfect as a sandwich.

When the group came under attack from Cobra, using new mutant plant spores, Airtight's chemical knowledge proved essential, using battery acid to destroy the spores. He then made use of his scorpion collection to attack attack Destro and Mindbender.
