A professor at an unspecified University and an old colleague of Reed Richards, he sought an end to war. He decided that if he could design a device that would neutralize any weapon, which would thus make any war impossible. As he prepared for his final test, he designed an armored suit that could protect its wearer like a portable bomb shelter. Rambow used his own son Larry as a test subject, but though the settings were all correct, a small oxygen leak in the chamber caused the energy to ignite and explode. When he awakened, Larry was gone.
Zolten tracked Larry to Manhattan, where he tried to convince the Fantastic Four and others to subdue his peacefully, but neglected to reveal his involvement. Finally Reed suspected there was more than he was telling, and he divulged the full truth. Reed then reminded him of their old policy of always having a failsafe device in case something went wrong, and the Torch flew him back to his lab and grabbed the device. Reed set the device, but then collapsed from injuries incurred while fighting Larry, and Zolten activated the device. It successfully restored Larry to normal, and Zolten collapsed from the strain. He was taken away in an ambulance.
