Donald "Donnie" Gill, also known as Blizzard, was a former student at the SHIELD Science and Technology Academy who gained the ability to freeze objects around him after being hit by a bolt of lightning from a device he created that could generate superstorms. While being monitored at the Sandbox, Donnie was brainwashed into working for HYDRA, though he eventually broke free of his brainwashing and went into hiding. HYDRA tracked him down and attempted to bring him back to their side, managing to trigger his brainwashing despite Gill's resistance. To prevent HYDRA from acquiring Gill, SHIELD Agent Skye shot him with a sniper, and he was left to sink down to the bottom of the ocean. Donnie was thought to have been killed, but survived his injuries, and was left in a state of cryogenic slumber for months, until Terrigen was released into the ecosystem by Agent Daisy Johnson.
Being of Inhuman descent, Donnie Gill underwent Terrigenesis after being exposed to the Terrigen in the ocean. Terrigenesis helped heal Donnie's wounds in addition to amplifying his own cryokinesis abilities and granting him electrokinesis abilities. After waking up, Donnie emerged from the ocean an Inhuman yet was unaware of how he gained his new abilities. Eventually, Donnie pieced together that he was one of the Inhumans whose powers were recently activated. He was eventually caught and turned over to the United States Government, where people took an interest in Donnie's abilities. Donnie Gill was listed as one of the candidates of Thaddeus Ross' Thunderbolt Initiative, a team comprised of super criminals with special powers and abilities that would operate under the authority of the government. He saw this as a chance to be part of something bigger, and wanted to prove he was a changed man.
