Early life

His early life is largely unknown but he did join the other three into space where they plan to be exposed by cosmic radiation to gain superpowers like the Fantastic Four. As a result of too much exposure, he gained a strong dense organic metal around his body earning the name Ironclad.

Present Day

Sometime later, the U-Foes were captured by S.H.I.E.L.D. and imprisoned in the The Cube in specialised cells. When the Breakout occured,the U-Foes were free and were about to leave until the Leader convinced them to stay and help him assist his plans for world domination. As the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in protective suits entered the Gamma-domed Cube, the U-Foes had attacked them one by one as Ironclad attacked Thor.

Despite Ironclad's immense strength,he was defeated both by Thor and Captain America. As the remaining Avengers and Samson ran to the gamma generator, the U-Foes, Zzzax and Gamma Monsters follwed them. Ironclad had attempted to smash on Iron Man but is blocked by Cap's shield and was shot by Iron Man's huge unibeam.
