Mallen was a former S.H.I.E.L.D agent who was fired because of issues with his mental stability. He stole an Extremis dose and injected himself, intent on proving himself worthy by gaining superhuman physical attributes, nigh-immortality, and electrical and fire-based powers. To keep up with his improved speed and durability, Iron Man had to upgrade as well. Mallen was subdued when Iron Man put a high voltage cable to him. He is currently in S.H.I.E.L.D. custody, his further fate remains unknown.[1]
