Weasel Wills was an otherwise smalltime criminal, who thought he could make it big by being the first person to break into Stark Industries. Little did he realize that he would find Tony Stark's attaché case containing Iron Man's armor. Wills donned the armor and walked off the premises posing as the real Iron Man.
Over the next few days, Wills learned how to use the the armor, then began a crime spree. When Tony Stark learned of Wills activities as Iron Man, he donned the older Model 1 armor and contacted Wills on Iron Man's special radio frequency, telling him to meet him at the Stark Industries Flushing factory, or he would hunt him forever. Wills showed up, and the two Iron Men fought. While the older armor was apparently stronger and more rigid, the newer armor was faster and equipped with more advanced weaponry. Stark managed to hold Wills off, goading him into squandering the armor's energy, while he secretly disabled the factory's power supply. Eventually, Wills armor became slower and slower as its energy began to run out. Stark then grabbed Wills and disabled the armor's main power supply, trapping him within the immobilized armor. Wills was subsequently arrested and exposed as the thief, his knowledge of Stark's identity irrelevant as he suffered a mental breakdown during his use of the armour to the extent that he convinced himself that he was Iron Man.
