While he has accepted the fact that he will always be reliant on his armored power suit to move, he is very self-conscious of the burn marks and scars from his accident that cover his body.

Stockade has always loved the spotlight and enjoys the national attention he garners as a member of the Guardians. He has always been a risk taker, a trait which inevitably led to his debilitating accident in his racing days, but in his armored power suit he once again feels invincible. Cocky and self-assured, Stockade enjoys playing the part of the millionaire playboy daredevil and never misses an opportunity to promote himself in front of the media as a hero. At the end of the day, however, Stockade is only out for himself. Motivated by personal financial gain, many of the investments Stockade has secretly made with his sponsorship money have been morally and ethically questionable.
Stockade often feels intellectually intimidated by both of his fellow Guardians, one a prominent research scientist and the other a former astronaut, so his ego compensates for his perceived personal shortcomings in other ways. He knows Destiny despises him so he goes out of his way to make her feel uncomfortable whenever the opportunity arises, patting himself on the back for his cleverness whenever he gets away with doing so in front of the public. It bothers him that Destiny acts like she is too good for him, so Stockade often belittles her with inappropriate and derogatory sexual remarks. Stockade sees the American as competition for the spotlight (after all, NASA astronaut mission commander trumps NASCAR race car driver any day in the public eye), so he will often take greater risks to keep the attention on himself. Afterward, he dismisses the American's legitimate concerns for the mission and safety of the team as jealousy, and plays down any accusations of putting everyone in jeopardy with his rash actions. And with the way the American has been getting further and further out there away from reality lately, he really is one to trash talk.

Powers and Abilities
After Rock Hamlin was paralyzed from the waist down due to a severed spinal cord in an auto racing accident, SCOPE designed a special suit of body armor that allowed him to walk again. This armored power suit not only provides resistance from physical damage but enhances the wearer's physical abilities as well. It also provides the wearer full protection in both high altitude and underwater environments. Shoulder-mounted missile launchers fire various types of ordnance. Jets mounted on the back of his armor allow Hamlin to fly at supersonic speeds. There is also a built-in anti-missile defense system similar to those found on modern fighter jets. Finally, the helmet is equipped with the latest enhanced visual detection technologies.
