Savin became Aldrich Killian's right-hand man after becoming a test subject in A.I.M.'s Extremis program, which gave him super soldier-like abilities, with near invulnerability. He caused the hospitalization of Happy Hogan, then infiltrated Air Force One as the Iron Patriot to put the armour onto President Ellis, programmed to take him to an oil-tanker for a public execution by Killian. Savin then set off a bomb on Air Force One while still in midair, but was mortally wounded by a blast from Tony Stark (Iron Man)'s remote-controlled Mark XLII armor's chest beam.
