Gus was a member of the Caligo Fire Department. On one fateful call, his team was called in to help extinguish a burning apartment building. Assuming the building had been evacuated, the fire department was ready to let the super-hot building burn itself out. But Gus suddenly heard the cries of a young girl yelling from a window and, acting on instinct, he rushed into the building to find her. He was able to save the girl, but at the cost of his own well-being. Gus’s skin from the neck down was charred and he would certainly have died, but his courage was rewarded by the combined efforts of Caligo’s mayor Ralph Logan and the technological research and development company Brainstorm Industries. An experimental iron skin was surgically grafted on to Gus’s body, not only saving his life but also making him thereafter impervious to pain and most damage. At Mayor Logan’s suggestion, Gus tried out for the position of Caligo’s champion, in the wake of the death of Mr. Ultimate, but Gus’s new body had left him with a less than savory attitude, and he was not chosen. Instead he fought crime as Ferro for a while before finally admitting that he would be better off as part of a team, and he was recruited into the ranks of N-Force.
