BIO: The Asset[]

He went to the University of Cambridge and one of his classmates was Ian Quinn. The two became friends as they shared the belief that all information should be free to whomever can use it. Hall also developed his theories about the rare and mysterious element known as Gravitonium during this time. Hall recognized the danger of his theoretical element, whereas Quinn thought only of how to exploit it.

Later in life, Hall became an instructor for S.H.I.E.L.D. where he taught such promising young cadets as Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons.

After discovering that Ian Quinn had discovered a large quantity of Gravitonium and fearing what Quinn would do with such power, Hall arranged to have himself kidnapped by Quinn and brought to Malta, where Hall pretended to work with Quinn towards his goals.2In truth, Hall was determined to destroy the Gravitonium, along with Quinn and himself, in order to keep the world safe.

What Hall didn't anticipate was a S.H.I.E.L.D. extraction operation lead by agent Phil Coulson attempting to effect Hall's rescue. Coulson, after determining that Hall's plan would harm much of the local population, disrupted Hall's plan and shut down the gravitational generator.

The gravitational after-effect drew Hall into the mass of Gravitonium, enveloping him.2Coulson ordered the mass of Gravitonium be secured in an unmarked vault at The Fridge, a S.H.I.E.L.D. storage facility. Unbeknownst to Coulson, Hall still lives within the mass of Gravitonium and seeks escape.
