Chase Stein discovering the Fistigons

Verison 1

After witnessing their parents sacrificing a young women, the Runaways visited their parents' houses trying to find evidence against them.[4] In the Steins secret laboratory, Chase Stein found the Fistigons and the X-Ray Specs.[2] With practice, Chase began to slowly learn how to more effectively use the Fistigons.[3][5]

After accessing the Marine Vivarium, Chase was attacked by security golems.[6] Too weak to continue on to face The Pride, Chase offered the Fistigons and X-Ray Specs to Alex Wilder, who later betrayed them all.[7] The gauntlets were destroyed when the Gibborim killed Alex.[8]

Version 2

While stranded in 1907, Chase stole Yorkes' timemachine planning to retrieve Gertrude Yorkes.[9] Unable to take Gert from her seemingly happy life, Chase instead secretly visited his parents' workshop and stole another set of Fistigons and X-Ray Specs.[10]

In the Malibu House, Chase found a matching pair of Footstigons.[11] Using the combination of rockets on the Fistigons and Footsigons allows Chase to fly similar to Iron Man.[12]

The Fistigons were brought with Chase when he, Nico Minoru, and fourteen other super-powered adolescents were abducted and brought to Murderworld by Arcade.[13] The Fistigons were briefly integrated into the Darkhhawk Armor when Chase became "Chasehawk" with the Raptor Amulet.[14]

Version 3
