Jack O'Lantern wears a suit of protective body armor. His helmet is equipped with infrared vision and surrounded with a low-level flame. Levins usually wears a half-helmet, though he also has a full-pumpkin helmet. His weapons include wrist blastsrs, tear gas, smoke grenades, hallucinogenic gases, concussion grenades, knock-out gas and "ghost-grabbers," a film which adheres to his victims' faces to asphyxiate them. He travels on a one-man hovercraft.
The second Jack O'Lantern was a mercenary who fought Captain America and Spider-Man. His identity was never revealed in a comicbook, but in New Avengers Most Wanted, a character compendium, his name was revealed to be Steven Mark Levins.
This incarnation of Jack O'Lantern was a member of the loosely-knit band of Red Skull minions called The Skeleton Crew. He was also a partner of Blackwing prior to joining the Skull's group.
He also worked as an enforcer of the gangster The Golem and in this capacity, fought the villain The Hood when he interfered in Golem's machinations.
He was a member of the new Thunderbolts, until the Punisher shot him in the head. His shattered helment oozed out pumpkins guts despite the long-standing assumption Levins was just a man in a pumpkin mask.
Solicitations for upcoming comic book releases suggest that he will return as one of the numerous vessels for Satan in the new Ghost Rider series.
