    The true identity of Badd Axe is unknown but he would come into conflict with Spider Man and Nova when he partners up with Fire-Arms and Vampiro. The three baddies attract the attention of Spider-Man when they begin to burn down several condos in New York. Richard Rider is informed that one of those condos being burned down is the home of his mother. Nova arrives on the scene and helps Spider-Man battle Badd Axe and the rest of his crew. Nova is distracted when Spider-Man saves his mother who was trapped in the building and gets slashed by Badd Axe. However, Nova recovers and his suit begins to seal itself. His partner, Fire-Arms is taken down by Spider-Man so Badd Axe takes Rider's mother as a hostage.

The Hood orders the Taskmaster to bring in a bunch of D-list villains, ex-cons and other Initiative members they feel are expendable into the Shadow Initiative. This group was the first wave of Initiative members to assault a prison in the Negative Zone called 42 that was taken over by Blastaar and his army. This group acted as cannon fodder to soften up Blastaar's forces before sending in the big boys to clean up. Badd Axe survived the assault but his partner Fire-Arms was killed during the battle. Badd Axe and a number of other Initiative members are ordered to take down Prodigy and the Heavy Hitters after they stated on television that they were seceding from the Initiative.
