Son of the wealthy Bernand Barros Alex left for a research trip with his father and brother Marc but their submarine was shot down by the evil Warlok, luckily for them were rescued by Roman who through the magic of his people was able to give him the ability to breathe underwater and unlock their powers.

Alex thus obtained cryokinetic abilities and was recruited into the second iteration of Brigade by Battlestone, and together with the team he fought against the evil alien Genocide.

On his return to Earth, however, the team was attacked by Bloodstrike and his apparatus that allowed him to control his powers was damaged, triggering a transformation in him that made him an ice creature with great physical prowess.

Traumatized by his own transformation, Alex relied on his girlfriend Thermal for emotional support but they were both apparently killed by the powerful Crypt.

Alex reappeared some time later only to see his beloved woman being killed by his former mentor Battlestone along with the more violent members of Youngblood.

Alex reappeared again years later, after finding out that Battlestone was actually his uncle and learning to control his powers, he was recruited into the last iteration of his old team by Lethal.
