Harris Porter had priors and he had tough time finding work. Things turned worse when his wife left him. Needing to support himself and his daughter, he went to work for Black Cat, but his robbery attempt was stopped by Silk. His first costume ruined, Black Cat sent him to The Repairman, who gave him a new costume. Renaming himself as "Rage" he attacked Silk, but was beaten down again. He told his story to Silk, and she directed him towards Alchemax, since they offered second chances to criminals.
During the time two earth collided, Dragonclaw in his armor helped Silk, who was trapped under a bus.
