Bio:
When we first met Abe Zimmer (in IM #219) he was an old computer programmer close to being put out to pasture. Tony Stark soon gave him a new lease on life; Zimmer would repay his boss by helping him hold on to his (literally).

As misfortune after misfortune dogged Accutech, Abe Zimmer attributed the company’s run of bad luck to the Ghost, but nobody believed the old man, who was close to mandatory retirement anyway, not even after he told them that the Ghost had destroyed his company ten years ago. Abe was eventually proven right when the Ghost became an all too real threat. After that adventure, Abe, a dedicated and talented programmer, Abe soon impressed the new boss, Tony, soon becoming a trusted employee and friend.

Abe used his hacking skills to help Tony locate everyone who had his armor tech in the Armor Wars, then helped keep the technology out of the world’s computers by writing an ingenious “Tapeworm” program (an early Internet virus). The program was sent looping around the world, forever; every time it finds Stark technology on an unauthorized computer, it erases it. In #284, Abe helped lead the team that froze (and later unfroze) Tony. Of course, Abe wasn’t all work. He did find time to date Dr. Erica Sondheim.

In #330, after SE was bought up by Fujikawa, Zimmer and Rhodey made an after-hours visit to destroy all the Iron Man info in the Stark computers. They were attacked by the mercenaries known as Stockpile, and Abe was killed.
