While working in America, Jonothon Cayre saw the Air Walker, Herald of Galactus, fighting Thor. When Thor destroyed it, he recovered a small piece of the robot, recognizing its self-regenerative abilities, and allowed the fragment to grow so that he could harvest it's power, and build his own Air-Walker.

Acquiring an L.M.D, Norm, in America, he returned to Scotland and began by creating a prototype Air-Walker which failed, and he abandoned it in a vault beneath his house. His second robot was much more successful, closely matching the original Air Walker, and able to wield the Power Cosmic. He then tried to use the self regenerating technology on himself, but it rejected him, constantly killing and resurrecting him, but giving him the power to control his molecular structure and unravel DNA. Driven mad, he destroyed the village of Carrin’s Hollow in Scotland, by unravelling the DNA of the inhabitants. He then unleashed his plan, releasing the Air Walker to destroy, as well as his L.M.D Norm, who he armed with a nuclear bomb. He himself went to a pub, where the patrons hid him out of fear.

Later, the Phoenix arrived and, with the patrons being unhelpful, she washed them away by opening all the kegs of beer in the pub, until they point out Dr Cayre. He had mutated into a new creature, the result of his failed experimenting on himself. He released a fluid from his hands, that unraveled the DNA of everyone left in the room except Phoenix, who shielded herself. He began to work his way through her shield, until she slammed a pool table on top of him. He oozed out from underneath, and tried to leave, knowing that they couldn’t kill each other. As Phoenix stepped on a glass shard, she had an idea. She trapped him in a glass prison that was taken to W.H.O. so they could attempt to cure him.[1]

His constant resurrections drove Cayre insane.
