Flying squirrel is a backup superhero in the Mother Earth Force. Firstly, he is BASE jumper. This means he is one of those sky divers that jumps off high Buildings, Antennas, Spans(bridges) and Earth (giant cliffs).
His name comes from his wingsuit which has the image of a giant squirrel on it. The wingsuit can glide 3 feet for every foot it descends. After losing enough altitude, its trip ends in parachuting to the ground.
Due to liability issues, those that run the BASE spots lock up their domains. To be a successful BASE jumper, Flying Squirrel is an excellent lock picker and break-in expert. He has shared these skills with the rest of Mother Earth Force in exchange for a classified exoskeleton that makes him stronger and better equipped to help his fellow superheros.
