Fictional character biography
Exposure to radioactive isotopes caused Dr. Henri Sorel to mutate into an inhuman being who could generate blasts of nuclear energy, and warped his personality. The Puppet Master agreed to assist Radion in exchange for his help. Radion amplified the radiation in the Puppet Master's clay, enabling him to use Thor to attack the
Fantastic Four. When Wundarr the Aquarianarrived to help, he absorbed Radion's powers, causing Radion to flee.
Sorel then constructed a suit of armor to contain his energies and protect himself from reaching critical mass. He renamed himself the Ravager and traveled to London. At Heathrow Airport, Iron Fist and
Misty Knightattacked him and were defeated. When his chestplate controls were smashed by Iron Fist, a nuclear chain reaction began in his body which might have caused him to explode, if he had not been returned to human form, drained of radiation.
Sorel, cured in mind and body, then came to be employed by as head of the human resources research dome. He gained the opportunity to study a number of superhuman beings. His research led to the construction of the Vault, and he was eventually employed at the Vault as well.
