Dr. Sandhurst approaches Tony Stark to get him to join A.I.M. during the Tomorrow Academy’s job fair. He allows Tony access to the Controller Disks which will be used in the organic incorporation of M.O.D.O.K.

The Controller then activates M.O.D.O.K., but is knocked unconscious by M.O.D.O.K. who foresees that the Controller will turn against A.I.M. to improve his Controller Disks.

The next time his Dr. Sandhurst is scene he has fully taken up the Controller identity. He pursues the Hulk and Rick Jones in order to use them in his revenge against A.I.M. only to end up controlling Iron Man in his Dynamo Buster Armor.

The Controller then uses Iron Man in the new armor to attack A.I.M. and M.O.D.O.K. The band of friends which include the Hulk, Rhodey, Pepper, and Rick manage to defeat the Controller and release Tony from his control.
