Gregor Shapanka also known as Blizzard is a Hungarian scientist obsessed with immortality, and decides studying cryonics is the first step towards his goal.


Shapanka then joins the company Stark Industries to fund his research, and eventually attempts to steal directly from Tony Stark - secretly the hero Iron Man. Shapanka is caught and fired, but, following a remark made by Stark, he creates a suit containing cold-generating devices. After Shapanka uses the suit for committing robberies, he is dubbed Jack Frost by the papers. He then attempts to raid Stark Industries, but is defeated by Iron Man. Several years later, Shapanka returns with an updated suit and using the alias Blizzard. He again attempts to steal from Stark Industries and is once again defeated by Iron Man. Shortly thereafter, Shapanka reconstructs his cold-suit in prison; but when Electro uses his electrical powers to break out of the adjoining cell, Shapanka is caught in the blast and the suit is fused to his body. Electro and the Blizzard then join forces to take over the Daily Bugle, but are stopped by Spider-Man and Daredevil. Some months later criminal mastermind Justin Hammer hires the Blizzard to join an army of supervillains and battle Iron Man, who subsequently beats the Blizzard twice in a matter of days. Shapanka then briefly resumes his Jack Frost identity and battles The Hulk. Some time later the Blizzard attempts a bank robbery but is thwarted by Spider-Man. Blizzard then mistakes a villainous version of Iron Man from the year 2020 for the modern Iron Man and attempts to ambush him. The future Iron Man, however, is on an urgent mission and instantly kills the Blizzard with a repulsor blast.
