Ambushed and Drugged
Before he was transformed into the Wrecker, Garth Richardson was a very skilled poker player, and he spent most of his days in casinos, scamming others out of their money, making himself a legend to the poker players of Las Vegas. Eventually, he scammed the wrong person. The mob boss, Wilson Fisk, did not enjoy losing his money, so he sent his men after Garth to mug him. He also gave orders that he be injected with a gamma serum, and left to die. Fisk's men did as they were told and they abandoned Garth in a run down alleyway.
When he lay in pain, Garth figured he would die. However, the gamma serum had an odd effect on his bloodstream. It caused his muscles to bulge to three times their size and his skin was turned green. He became enraged, determined to find and kill Wilson Fisk. He rampaged through Las Vegas, causing a major panic. The police forces were unable to bring him down, and after hours of searching he located the casino where Fisk was hiding.
Wrecker quickly charged at Fisk, but was soon blasted by a laser in the back of his head. He turned to see the Defenders Iron Man and Thor. Garth chuckled, figuring he could easily take them out, but Thor proved to be a large trouble. When he noticed Fisk was attempting to escape, he threw Iron Man at Thor, distracting them each, running at Fisk. He then prompted to grab his head and rip it off of his body. When Thor witnesses this, he calls upon all the power he can muster and he strikes Wrecker down with a lightning bolt.
