The Scorcher was a normal research chemist until the day he framed for embezzlement in his company.  He then ran away but lived outside the law from that day on depending on his creations to aid him in his life of crime. He first worked for Norman Osborn and quickly made an enemy out of Spider-Man on a couple of occurrences as told in Untold Tales of Spider-Man #1 & 14. He showed up again in Spider-Man Holiday Special in a somewhat token appearance where he went up against the Ben Reilly Spider-Man. Most recently, he has joined up with 24 other villains in one of the more recent versions of the Masters of Evil in the pages of Thunderbolts #24 & 25.
