Baron Brimstone wore a harness beneath his cloak that granted him the ability to teleport, to generate "eldritch blasts" and to create a force field capable of repelling conventional small arms fire. However, the Baron has apparently had some magical training, and has demonstrated the ability to levitate himself and hypnotize others. The harness apparently also augmented his ability to enter the Quasi-Universe, a portion of interdimensional space possessing an alien environment very similar to the Dark Dimension. Baron Brimstone has also used spherical grenades containing explosives and knock-out gas.
Baron Brimstone is a criminal who appears to use a combination of magical powers and technological devices in committing thefts. Baron Brimstone had successfully stole the Sol-Mac from the Chem-Solar Corporation with the intention of mass producing it as a weapon and selling it to various figures in the "criminal underworld." The security at Chem-Solar and Machine Man were unable to stop him in stealing the Sol-Mac. Baron Brimstone later organized a meeting with non-Maggia affiltrated criminals to recruit them into his Satan Squad. Duke Dawson, one of the assembled criminals, took the exception of Brimstone's leadership and met with Delmar Insurance agent Pamela Quinn which resulted in Baron Brimstone sending his lieutenants "Snake" Marston and "Hammer" Harrison to bring her to Brimstone for interrogation. When Machine Man tracked them and found the Satan Squad's hideout, he rescued Quinn, and handed Baron Brimstone to the Police.
While at a Maximum Security unit on Ryker's Island, Baron Brimstone hypnotized a guard into freeing him and he escaped after releasing Sandman and plotted his revenge on Machine Man. They appeared at Delmar Insurance to kidnap Pamela Quinn only to be thwarted by Machine Man and Spider-Man after which Baron Brimstone escaped.
Baron Brimstone later robbed a casino on the French Riviera where the Caribbean-based casino owners hired Paladin to bring him to justice. During that time, Paladin had help from the Wasp in fighting and defeating him.
During the "Acts of Vengeance" event, Doctor Doom later used his Aggression Enhancer to force Baron Brimstone, as well as Armadillo, Man-Ape, Orka, Stilt-Man, and Whirlwind, into attacking the Fantastic Four at a hearing in Congress, but they were defeated and taken into police custody.
