Broxtel was a custodian at Stark Industries who would often work nights in order to access the computer files beneath the notice of the professional personnel.
Broxtel then stole the plans for the costume and weaponry of the villain Firebrand and reconstructed it through unrevealed means, most likely criminal outfitter the Tinkerer or criminal industrialist Justin Hammer.
Later, Broxtel was among an army of super-villains hired by R.A.I.D. as part of a terrorist attack on the city of London. He was teamed up with Boomerang and charged with attacking Heathrow Airport, though they were stopped by the combined efforts of the Arabian Knight and Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. The villains did succeed, however, in giving R.A.I.D. agents enough time to hijack a plane which they planned to use as part of their terrorist activities. Luckily, the plane was soon rescued by Union Jack and Sabra.
