Untold Tales of Spider-Man

After being wrongly fired for embezzlement, Steven Hudak designed an armored suit containing flame-thrower equipment and attacked his former company as the Scorcher.

Scorcher's criminal activities were secretly supported by Norman Osborn. The Scorcher was stopped by Spider-Man (Peter Parker).[1]

Scorcher escaped prison, but was again defeated by Spider-Man. He seemingly died in an explosion. [2]

Return

The Scorcher returned to crime after several years of hiatus. He attempted to attack the Christmas shoppers, but was stopped by Spider-Man (Ben Reilly).[3]

The Crimson Cowl recruited Scorcher as part of the Masters of Evil.[4] They were defeated by the Thunderbolts.[5]

Secret War

After Nick Fury's Secret War, Scorcher accepted a contract to kill Daredevil, accompanied by Diamondback (Debbie Bertrand). He was again stopped by Spider-Man.[6] Hudak was pressed to join Lucia von Bardas' attempted attack on the United States in exchange for upgrades to his suit. While being interrogated by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, Hudak expressed disinterest in continuing his criminal career and even offered his services to S.H.I.E.L.D. in exchange for his freedom.[7] He is currently attempting to reconcile with his ex-wife.

The Savage Land Mutates approached him, offering cash to get Sauron out of imprisonment in the Raft (a job that went to Electro). Still trying to distance himself from crime, Hudak hoped that the X-Men could deal with the problem and attest to his compliance. This resulted in Wolverine investigating the Savage Land, where he met the New Avengers, a team he soon joined.[8]

Fifty-State Initiative

After the Civil War, the Scorcher returned to crime once more. He fought and was defeated by the Fifty-State Initiative's New Jersey team, the Defenders, specifically by She-Hulk.[9]

Secret Invasion

After his defeat, Scorcher joined The Hood's criminal gang and fought some Skrulls.[10]

The Aftermath

After the Secret Invasion, Norman Osborn takes charge of both the Initiative and the Hood, who sends Scorcher, Living Laser, Griffin, and Razor-Fist after Tigra and Gauntlet. Griffin tracks them to a sewer underneath New York City. Scorcher starts to torch them, planning on taking Tigra back alive and just bringing back Gauntlet's right arm, when he and the rest of the villains are defeated by the sudden arrival of the New Warriors. After they regain consciousness, Norman Osborn leads them and the others who will join them to Camp HAMMER.[11]
