After being fired from Stark Industries for embezzlement, Steven Hudak designed an armor that used Extremis as a fuel source and attacked his former company of employment as the Scorcher.

Scorcher's criminal activities were secretly supported by Norman Osborn, who sought to use him as a puppet to eliminate his rival companies from the competition permanently. However, Hudak was stopped by the combined forces of Iron Man and Spider-Man who, at the the time, was wearing the Iron Spider suit.

Later on, Justine Hammer arranged for Hudak to be released from jail so that she may recruit him as part of the Masters Initiative.
