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