Isaac’s mother stopped letting him blow out his birthday candles after his sixth birthday, when he blew down the wall of their kitchen. Doctors could not explain his mutant ability to exhale with extreme force, so his parents hid the power away as well as they could and tried to live normal lives. But Isaac was uninterested in keeping his difference under a bushel, so at the young age of 14 he set out to fight crime in Caligo he made quite a stir among the populace, as well as the villains of the town, and before long he was the victim of an ambush by the evil team known as the Gauntlet. The group forced Isaac to travel through an underground tunnel fighting each member of the Gauntlet in turn. The constant struggle left Isaac tired and out of breath, rendering his power all but useless. But in the nick of time, the Caligo Mutant League arrived and saved him. Over the years, Isaac, now known as the Iron Lung, has become a valued member of the team. He wears thick iron armor to protect him from attack, and his headgear is equipped with a device that can either weaken or amplify his breath, depending on the circumstance.
