Miluv had actually arranged a calculated assault on Alex, using tranquilizers combined with a few strategically placed non-lethal bullets. With Alex believed dead, S.H.I.E.L.D. collected him, and Nick Fury took him under his wing; however, Alex was left highly neurotic by his experiences, and it was decided to submerge his memories. Alex - codenamed Ashcan - was relocated to Boulder, Colorado and placed under the care of semi-retired S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Dylan Pattinson, whom he believed to be his real father.In search of missing Gamma Bombs, renegade S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Clay Quartermain tried to hack into S.H.I.E.L.D. Central’s database through Pattinson’s relatively unguarded home. Clay’s allies, the Hulk and Rick Jones, easily overpowered Pattinson, but the Hulk’s appearance terrified Alex into unleashing his forgotten power, frying the Hulk’s face. The Hulk’s rage quickly faded upon learning about Alex’s abusive father, and his similar experiences led the two to become fast friends. His memory and power restored, Alex was left under Pattinson’s care, though he quickly told his “dad” that it was time to renegotiate his allowance.
