As a young boy, "Brains" Borelli was constantly picked on for his lack of intelligence. He would consequently grow to have a deep rooted hostility for those of exceptional intelligence, specifically scientists. As an adult, he amassed enough criminal power to become a leading crime boss in the city, gloating over how he had everyone in his pocket. He took personal joy in loaning money to scientists whom could not pay him back so that he could send his men to destroy their inventions.

One such scientist was Enoch Mason, inventor of the "Dimensional Smasher". On the night that he activated the device, Borelli sent his men to collect or destroy the device. However, the smoke from one of his minion's cigars unleashed Aarkus the Vision. The Vision slew Borelli's men, saving Mason.

Later, Borelli sent men to kidnap Mason, his daughter Sheila, and Aarkus (now in a human form). Aarkus revived first and was told by Borelli that they were to be killed. Asking for a "last cigarette", Aarkus transformed into his Vision form and easily beat Borelli and his gang, leaving them for the authorities to apprehend.[1]
