His suit grants him the ability to teleport himself and anyone he covers with it.
Seth Voelker was born in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He was an economics professor, however he failed to make tenure. He was then hired by the Roxxon Oil Company as an economic analyst. However, he became aware of their criminal activities and became a participant in them. He became Sidewinder and his first mission was to retrieve the Serpent Crown, and outfitted with a cloak that had teleportation powers. Alongside the third incarnation of the Serpent Squad, Sidewinder was able to return the crown to company president Hugh Jones.
After that stint, he decided to form his own criminal organization, the Serpent Society. Given his ability to teleport, Sidewinder promised his recruits they would never be imprisoned. This attracted several snake-themed villains, and the Serpent Society was quite the success.
Sidewinder was betrayed by his comrades in favor of Viper (Ophelia Sarkissian) when she inflitrated the group. Sidewinder was poisoned, but cured by Diamondback. Eventually, Viper was ousted but Sidewinder decided to quit the crime business.
