The original Box “armor” is more accurately a robot. Created by Roger Bochs, the robot was controlled through a psycho-cybernetic helmet. The helmet was connected by cable to a transmitter which allowed the helmet wearer to control the robot’s actions and perceive what the robot perceived. 
After discovering that Bochs was working on developing the robot, James Hudson assisted, having expertise in cybernetic control helmets. He then drafted Bochs to join Beta Flight as ‘’’Box.’’’, Following the dissolution of Department H, Bochs returned to Moosejaw to continue tinkering with his design.
It was there that Bochs was contacted by Roxxon Oil employee Delphine Courtney  who used a device to emotionally manipulate him into working with her employer, Jerome Jaxon. Once in New York City, Jaxon revealed his plans. Bochs would not agree to go along with it so Jaxon used the control helmet to operate Box and used it to attack Hudson, ultimately leading to Hudson’s death.
