The origin of this Thermite has not been revealed before joining the New Enforcers.

When Blood Rose tracked the New Enforcers to their headquarters, Thermite assisted his teammates into attacking Black Rose where he uses his powers to disarm Blood Rose. Spider-Man arrived in his new armor and defeated the New Enforcers members until Thermite was the only one left standing. Thermite managed to destroy Spider-Man's armor, but Spider-Man managed to knock him out with one punch. Thermite and the other members of the New Enforcers were arrested by the police.[3]

Powers and abilities[edit]

The Squadron Supreme Thermite could project intense heat from the left side of his body, and intense cold from the right. He needed a regulator pack to control his body temperature at the interface between his two sides of his body.

The Earth-616 version has the same powers.
