Origins:
 
Tom Wilkins was originally a loyal employee and skilled security officer. However, for whatever reason, he developed an intense fear of losing his pension. This fear progressed into paranoid schizophrenia.
By stealing technology available at the Stark International plant, he developed a costume to form the identity of Endotherm. In this identity, he began performing acts of vandalism on the plant, hoping to draw the company's chief executive officer, Tony Stark, to the plant to investigate. He then planned to kill Stark. In his mind, if the head of the company were dead, there would be no one to fire him, and no way he could lose his pension.
