Transillumination (the ability to temporarily transform solid objects, including himself, into light); Elmo can also project these lights as a concussive force. Given his claim to be thousands of years old, Elmo also appears to have an extremely slow aging factor by human standards.
After arriving at the small training center for The Flight, Sean Benard was confronted by Saint Elmo. Elmo took a liking to Benard, and slapped him on the back, temporarily turning the man into light. Panicking, Benard ran off and through a wall.
During a training session for the group, Smart Alec attempted to reflect Elmo’s light bursts back at him, and succeeded in hurting him.
Shortly after, Egghead and his Emissaries of Evil (camped just on the Canadian side of the border) sent out a televised warning that they possessed a nuclear missile and demanded the President of the United States hand over leadership of the country to Egghead or else he’d launch the missile into New York. Elmo accompanied the Flight team to their location, where they battled the Emissaries, with Elmo having a hard time combating Porcupine’s nerve gas. In the middle of the battle, Egghead set the release of the missile, and seeing no other way to disarm it, Elmo attempted to convert the entire weapon into light. The amount of nuclear energy was more than Elmo could normally handle, and he perished in the conversion, sending a massive light throughout the Canadian sky.
