History: As one of the top test pilots in the U.S. military, Joshua Graham found himself ordered to Area 51 for a top-secret assignment. He was tasked with the mission of figuring out how to operate an alien craft and documenting its capabilities. After much preparation (but little practical knowledge of the machine), Joshua fire up the ignition and was immediately catapulted into the stratosphere, where, according to observers and all of ground control’s instruments, the alien craft exploded. Amazingly, Joshua was found naked and unconscious in the middle of the desert the next day. He soon foun he had the ability to control the air around him and even turn his own body into a cohesive gaseous substance very much like Earth’s atmosphere.
Height: 5’ 9” Weight: 145 lb.
Eyes: pale blue Hair: blond
Strength level: Average human strength
Known superhuman powers: Air Control, Wind Form
Abilities: Airlift has the ability to control wind currents. He can create hurricane-force winds within a 30-foot radius of himself, or weaker winds over a wider area. He can also transform his body into a gaseous state very similar in composition to the Earth’s atmosphere.
Limitations: Airlift has a tenuous agreement with the United States Government: they do not try to coerce him into service or make him a test subject, and he does not release to the media proof of the secret alien technology test programs at Area 51. He relies on his fame as a member of the Infinity Legion to enforce this bargain. Of course, if this secret were ever revealed to the public by someone other than Joshua, he would still lose his bargaining chip with the government and face dire consequences.
Weapons: The very air around us!
