Powers/Abilities: Matt Trakker was one of the creators of the M.A.S.K. vehicles and masks. He often wore the Spectrum Mask (shown) or the Ultra Flash mask. Spectrum could fire laser beams, generate shrill noises, had some sensory abilities, and ould control a fall. Ultra Flash produced a blinding burst of light. Trakker normally piloted Thunder Hawk, a car which could convert into a jet, but he sometimes drove the Rhino tractor rig; when he did so, he would generally wear the Ultra-Flash Mask. He also co-piloted the Volcano while wearing the Lavashot mask which could fire streams of molten lava. Finally, he occasionally drove Goliath and wore the Shroud Mask, which could create a Smokescreen.
History: Matt Trakker developed the powerful Mask headpieces along with his brother Andy and Miles Mayhem. However Mayhem stole many of these powerful weapons and killed Andy, then set out to plunder the world with his V.E.N.O.M. agency. In response, Matt developed M.A.S.K. to thwart his former ally's ambitions.
