Following a non-descript childhood, Angst joined the Army and served under commanding officer Samuel Lane. During this time, Sam Lane was assigned to assist with a secret weapons project, and Lane actively encouraged Angst to volunteer for experiments associated with it. But during the experiments, something went horribly wrong, and Angst was exposed to a strange new type of radiation that activated his metagene, transforming him into a hulking, super-strong monster. Angst was quickly subdued and kept confined at a branch of S.T.A.R. Labs while a cure for his condition was sought. Throughout this time, Angst brooded and blamed Sam Lane for his situation.
Finally, after twenty years of captivity, Angst was able to escape, and the first thing he did was to seek Lane out and attempt to kill him.
