Chinook was apparently able to control wind. This power was enhanced when he was exposed to the Cosmic Ray Collector as well as giving him super-strength and invulnerability.
Chinook is one of the few Golden Age Canadian heroes, who retired after the war. His motto was "Out of darkest nights -- `Gainst the Northern Lights -- From gusts on high -- O`er Canada's sky -- soars the man they call... Chinook!"
Chinook had retired years before but when an accident with an experimental device known as the Cosmic Ray Collector in Orloo endangered life, he returned to active duty. During his attempt to destroy the device but was instead mutated into an insane monster with incredible power. It was only through the actions of James Hudson, Wolverine and Eugene Judd that he was stopped, sent through the black hole the Collector was creating.
Years later, Orloo was being hit with extreme winds, endangering lives and doing massive property damage. This was after the community had been experiencing unusual tremors for weeks beforehand. Alphans Guardian, Vindicator, Puck, Manbot and Sasquatch were sent to investigate. There they discovered Chinook had managed to escape somehow and was more powerful and demonic than ever. He was finally beaten when Sasquatch tore him in half.
