History

The Roxxon Energy Corporation was one of the largest fuel conglomerates around the world, which generated billions of dollars in profits each year with their business extraction, refining and manufacturing of products related to oil, through its many holdings. Like any business enterprise, the goal of Roxxon was to increase their profits, and it was not clear that all its businesses were entirely legitimate. In fact, Roxxon had been involved in many activities morally questionable or illegal, but this fact was unknown to most consumers and the general public.

Roxxon jumped to fame as something more than a business enterprise when its then chairman, Hugh Jones, was abducted by the second Serpent Squad. The Squad members were actually agents of the Serpent Crown, an object of great mystical power, built by the evil Set and uncovered when Roxxon used their machines to investigate the sunken city of Lemuria. Captain America, in his short career as the Nomad, rescued Jones, clashed with Serpent Squadron, and prompted the Crown to be lost. However, Jones was forced to put the Crown in his period of captivity, and since then, a mental link existed between the Crown and Jones, which would last for a lifetime.

This mental nexus between Jones and the Crown enabled Jones to trace the Crown, and he sent men to recover it. Employees of Roxxon found the Crown, and Jones had it placed on his head, making it invisible to anyone knew. Porting the Crown, Jones worked his subversive plans to dominate the government of the USA through a corporate conspiracy, and came into contact with the President of the US in another dimension, in the Land of the Squadron Supreme, who was also under the Crown's influence. When the Avengers opposed the plans of Jones, and he transported them to the Land of Squadron[53], where they were supposed to be defeated by the Squadron. Instead, they stole this reality's serpent crown and freed the Squadon Supreme from its influence. The Avengers returned and defeated Jones and his crown-controlled minion Orka[54]

Inadvertently, while they saved the land of the Squadron, the Avengers brought their world more of a threat, with two Serpent Crowns now existing on the same earth. The Avenger known as Vision, dropped the Serpent Cown from Earth-712 in the middle of the Pacific, believing that nobody could find it there. But the mental link allowed Jones to locate it, and he formed his own version of the Serpent Squadron, consisting of Roxxon employees who were genetically mutated. Despite opposition from Stingray and Thing, Roxxon recovered the Crown. After the second crown was delivered to Jones by the leader of this Squadron, Sidewinder, Jones moved to Washington DC, where he began controlling the minds of members of Congress, using the power of the two Crowns. His plans were aborted by Stingray, The Thing and the Scarlet Witch. Finally, the Thing managed to remove the Crown from the head of Jones. He went crazy because of their traumatic separation of the Crown, and even months after the Crown was destroyed, Jones remained in a mental hospital. The place of Jones as chairman of the Roxxon, was taken over by John T. Gamelin, previously vice president in charge of foreign matters.

Roxxon then pursued an expensive and elaborate project, the installation of Star Well, a satellite camera capable of collecting solar energy and sending to Earth in the form of microwaves. The designer of this space station was Doctor Arthur Dearborn, who submitted to a voluntary mutagenic treatment that transformed him into Sunturion. After an accident that killed over two-hundred people in Iowa, Iron Man went to investigate and discovered a camouflaged radar installation. At the end of the investigation, Sunturion was apparently sacrificed to destroy the Star Well that threatened to project its destructive power on Earth. The remaining components of the Star Well continued to operate in orbit.

Illegal activities of the Roxxon have not always remained hidden in the eyes of the government. Raymond Royton of the Department of Justice appointed a special investigator on possible illegal activities within Roxxon, who in turn, hid any evidence of fraud within the company. Nevertheless, Roxxon was unable to prevent the opening of an inquest into its scientific branch, the Brand Corporation, whose illegal activities were brought to light by the actions of Spider-Man and Will o'Wisp. To cover any possible investigation that linked him with the Brand Corporation, the president of Roxxon closed all Brand plants, including its main facility in Queens, New York. This demonstrated to the public that Roxxon had nothing to do with activities attributed to the Brand Corporation, whose facilities were closed down.

Roxxon has developed other illicit activities, such as the kidnapping of the comatose body of James Hudson, a project to abduct several to analyze their superhuman powers, or join a conglomerate of major companies to launch an attack on the Stark Company. Most recently Captain America uncovered a sinister plot involving Roxxon CEO Calvin Hardeman. Hardeman was indicted and replaced as CEO by Don Kaminski.[8]

Heroic Age : Secret Histories

During the Dark Reign, Roxxon was mining on Mars. Their operations were stopped by the discover of remains of an unknown civilisation, under the Shadow Council's eyes. Shadow Council's agents terminated Roxxon's staff who were lost under a new Serpent Crown's influence. The lost workers were simply vanished from the staff listing by Roxxon, and the Crown was sent to earth, tracked both the Council and Steve Rogers' Secret Avengers, who targeted Mr. Bromley, Roxxon's vice-president, in Dubaï, to steal this new Crown.

Eventually, this Crown was stole from the Secret Avengers by Max Fury, part of the Shadow Council, and a third one was found by Nova on Mars, who under her influence, started to command the mind-control Shadow Council's agents to dig the surface for an unknown mean, using Roxxon's equipments.

The Shadow Council so sent four kamikaze wielding atomic bombs to terminate the Serpent Crown pawns and the Secret Avengers, but Ant-Man managed to made them explode during the teleportation, destroying the Council's citadel on earth and Roxxon's installation on Mars, but leaving the Avengers unharmed.
