The Box armor is highly resistant to damage. The robot is equipped with many different sensors and a wide variety of tracking equipment. This is the armor before Madison Jeffries and Roger Bochs together upgraded the armor.
Jerome Jaxon was a vice-president at the Am-Can Petroleum Company. One of his employees was James MacDonald Hudson. When Jaxon revealed his plan to turn one of Hudson's designs, a cybernetic exploratory suit, over to the American military, Hudson quit. Jaxon's secretary, Heather McNeil, also gave three weeks notice in protest of Jaxon's actions. That night, Hudson returned to his former Am-Can lab and destroyed the plans for the suit. He also stole the control helmet that he designed himself before working for Am-Can, without which the suit was useless. Jaxon's bosses at Am-Can were very upset with how he had dropped the ball with the Hudson situation, and fired him. As a result of loosing his job, Jaxon's wife left him. Despair led Jaxon to a failed suicide attempt by hanging, leaving him confined to a wheelchair from spinal damage. From that point forward, he blamed Hudson for destroying his life.
He formed Omega Flight and kidnapped Roger Bochs after he refused to help kill James Hudson. The Box armor at this time was controlled by helmet, allowing Jaxon ] to fight against Hudson by remote control. Hudson believed Roger Bochs to still be in charge of the armour and tried to dissuade him from prolonging the fight. Jaxon refused and almost beat Hudson to death. To save his own life, Hudson pulled wires from his own suit's power pack and plunged them into the Box robot. Feedback from this overload transferred to Jaxon's cybernetic control helmet. This feedback seemed to have killed him.
