Timothy P. Janes was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. After joining the Army he trained in some of the military's toughest explosives training programs and eventually was assigned to the team as explosives ordinance and demolitions expert. General Rey noted that he did his job well, despite his anto-social tendencies.
Cobra Commander infiltrated the White House, replacing and posing as Chief of Staff Garret Freedlowe. Working closely with the President, "Freedlowe" created a new team called the Phoenix Guard, which he intended to use to destroy and take the place of G.I. Joe. The team's roster was made up of former Cobra agents using false identities. Scrap-Iron joined the group in the guise of a soldier code-named Mech. The Phoenix Guard's commander General Rey was unaware of his soldiers' true identities, and lead them on a raid of the new Joe team's headquarters. Against his wishes, the team relied too easily on deadly force, injuring many Joes and killing many of their support staff. When Rey learned the truth about his men, he confronted Scrap-Iron. He taunted the General and nearly killed him before Spirit and Snake-Eyes arrived. The Joes soon defeated the Phoenix Guard, and Scrap-Iron and other members were arrested by the military.
