Body Armour: Sandstorm's body is encased in hardened-grit armour, which provides him with protection from small-arms fire. He can eject the outer layer of his armour as a hail of shrapnel, and regenerate it by pulverizing more matter into grit. He can form his armour into spikes and other simple weapons.
Sand Blasts: Sandstorm can also generate damaging sandstorms and sand-blasts.
Despite the objections of Dr. Marla Madison, Tony Trainer was ordered by Morelle Pharmaceuticals rep Marcus Devane to begin the microwave bombardment of bio-samples from Quicksand and the Sandman as part of Project: Sandstorm. Trainer, more concerned with the excitement of pure science than their bickering, did as he was told. The two microwave-irradiated samples gained contact with each other and created a dual magnetic resonance, resulting in a massive explosion. Encased in an amorphous shell of particles, Trainer ground his way across the Empire State University campus, adding to his mass as he pulverized everything in his path. Spider-Man rescued Dr. Madison from his path of destruction and dropped a wall on him, briefly halting his rampage. As Quicksand and Sandman arrived at the trail of their purloined bio-samples, Trainer emerged in his new humanoid form as Sandstorm
