Steven Hudak was a keen intellect and chemist who was framed for embezzlement and sent to prison. Over time his mind turned and he became what he was framed to be, a criminal. Under the finances of Norman Osborn he created a suit of armor and battled Spider-man as one of his earliest villains. He was again returned to prison but escaped to establish a protection racket; again he was defeated by Spider-man and sent back to prison. He served his term and returned to society and remained crime free until a Christmas Eve which found him defeated by spider-man though this time he escaped. He joined the masters of evil and was defeated by the thunderbolts and sent back to prison. Escaping once again he confronted Daredevil and Spider-man alongside Diamondback 2 and was defeated.
Hudak took a hiatus from crime and even warned Wolverine when the savage land mutates tried to rescue Sauron from prison. It was short lived however and he returned to crime and was soundly defeated by She hulk before joining the Hoods gang and participating in the siege on Asgard.
