Over the course of the comic book series, he learns to change the costume and throw the chains at things as well as use the cape as a weapon. In the beginning, it is just a uniform. He is also obsessed with protecting his wife Wanda from the forces of the Malebolgia and the U.S. government. He lives in a New York alley with bums and learns from Cogliostro, a strange mysterious bum, how to master his powers and costume.
