Hotshot was one of Leader's gamma radiated servants. Before his transformation his name was Louis and he lived in Middletown, Arizona. He was planning to run away from home with his girlfriend, Jessie, because her parents didn't want them seeing each other. But that night the Leader blew up the town.

In an attempt to gain more test subjects for his experiments, Leader detonated a controlled gamma bomb in a Middletown which killed over 5000 people. The blast created five new superhuman enforcers whom Leader used to build the hidden society called Freehold in the Arctic. Hotshot has fought the Hulk on a few occasions with the other survivors of Middletown. He later left the Leader to piece his life back together with Jessie.

When his girlfriend, Jailbait, died, he started losing his mind. He went to a church during Sunday services and held the congregation hostage in order to force the priest to perform last rites on Jailbait all while ranting that Jailbait was possessed by the devil and that he saw a green door,[1] when she had been taken over by the spirit of Brian Banner.[2] He was eventually confronted by the Hulk who broke both of his hands and knocked him out. The police then arrested Lembert. Still grieving over the loss of Jailbait, Lambert committed suicide while in prison by hanging himself.[1]


Energy Projection: Lambert is able to project energy bolts from his hands. These bolts are powerful enough to blow a hole right through the Hulk.
