The Roxxon Corporation was a multi-conglomerate pharmaceutical empire. The company's pharmaceutical research was merely a front for Roxxon's true goals was researching advanced weapons and creating superpowered individuals, the latter of which was illegal in international law. Roxxon was led by Donald Roxxon, the company's heir, who is inept and has no clue what his company is doing. Among its employees were Elijah Stern and Herman Schultz, who were gifted individuals and were subsequently fired for the company's own misdeeds resulting in the former hiring supervillains in attacking Roxxon. According to Schultz, who became the Shocker, Roxxon is among of many powerful corporations who actually "rule the world" and stating that if Roxxon were ever to be brought down, "two more would grow in its place".[1]
