Carlton Drake is the head of the Life Foundation, a consortium he established under the paranoid belief that the world was unavoidably headed for a nuclear holocaust brought about by the end of the Cold War. Searching for a means of survival for himself and his clients, with whom he intended to rebuild society as a utopia, Drake hired the super-villain mercenary Chance to steal advanced technology to use in the construction of a bunker called Sanctum Maximus, but betrayed him hoping to steal the technology used in his suit; Chance escaped with the assistance of Spider-Man.
Coming to see symbiotes as the key to human survival, Drake became obsessed with capturing and studying the Venom symbiote, becoming a benefactor of Roland Treece's corporation Treece International in exchange for Treece helping him capture the symbiote's host, Eddie Brock. Separating the Venom symbiote from Eddie, Drake forcibly extracted five offspring from it and bonded them to mercenaries the Life Foundation had hired as security guards.
