When his mutant abilities emerged, Cannon used them to become a bully at school, and later, a petty thief. He tried his hand at various other professions, but was contacted by a criminal ring to fix races for them. The police got wise to Cannon, who, instead, haughtily devised a costumed identity for himself called the Human Top, and he embarked on a crime spree before being stopped by Hank Pym (as Giant Man) and Janet Van Dyne, the Wasp.
He tried to gain revenge and continue his life of crime, only to be stopped by Pym continually, and Cannon eventually designed the Whirlwind identity.
