Quote1 You see me, think you can put on a suit and fight me... but you don't understand anything. I don't need a suit. I am the suit. I am the weapon. I am Extremis. Quote2
-- Eric Savin src

Eric Savin was an agent of A.I.M. and the first field-operational enhancile prototype of the Extremis nanotech developed by them, the use of a mercenary made S.H.I.E.L.D. suspect the involvement of a third party in the Extremis project. Savin used the attack to the Stark Tower perpetuated by A.I.M.'s goon Blizzard to crack Stark's security and take remote control of War Machine's new Iron Patriot Armor, which he used to fight Rescue in combat. After Savin was defeated, the Iron Patriot Armor's command codes were re-keyed by Stark, but Savin himself escaped.

Once Mr. Fantastic, Hank Pym and Beast figured out a way to identify the electronic signature of the Extremis nanos, Savin was located nearby the Empire State University.

After Blizzard, Titanium Man, Whiplash and Crimson Dynamo were defeated, Savin was finally located, just in time for Tony Stark to reconfigure his newest suit, which had been damaged during A.I.M.'s cyber attack to the Stark Tower. After being defeated, Savin was taken to S.H.I.E.L.D. custody in order to investigate the Extremis technology.

Right after Savin was captured, the Mandarin revealed himself in a video transmission to be the mysterious ally of A.I.M., and that his true plan was about to start.[1]


  • Superhuman Strength: The Extremis virus enhances the muscular power of the host considerably.
  • Fire Breathing: Savin can release flames of fire from his lungs toward its opponent/s.
  • Regenerative Healing Factor: Extremis-enhanced beings can close and heal wounds at an incredibly high speed and have a limited form of immortality.


Seemingly those of the Eric Savin of Earth-199999.
