Rampage's suit gives him enhanced strength, speed, endurance, reflexes, flight, and durability. It could also produce a hypnotic gas.
His company, Clarke Futuristics, was unable to compete with larger companies such as Stark Industries, and was hit hard by the recession of the 1970's. One of his successful inventions was a suit of armor, comparable to Iron Man's, which he used to try and rob a bank.
His armor was involved in a Champions fight, and Clarke himself sought revenge on the Champions soon after their disbanding. He manages to entrap Iceman in one of the Rampage suits, forcing him to battle Angel and a visiting Spider-Man.
Clarke ends up homeless and his suits are stored away in a lab, their secrets pored over by profit-minded scientists. Clarke has secreted away a small device that allows him over the course of many weeks, to unlock the control protocols for the suit. Eventually they literally bust out by themselves. Clarke and several of his homeless friends put on the suit and soon get into a fight with Wonder Man and Hank McCoy, the Beast. The fight gets dangerous when the suit hits Beast with a brick chimney. Enraged, Wonder Man subdues the entire squad. Beast recovers after a short hospital stay.
Wonder Man's enemy Lotus springs Clarke from jail and participates in the creation of the armored team Armed Response. They become a private security force for Los Angeles. This falls apart when the media receives proof, from the super-powered group, the Crazy-Eight, that Armed Response is working with criminal elements in order to generate the need for themselves.
Stuart is working with the Punisher during the Civil War. He is obsessed with Iron Man and is giving Punisher the means to track down high tech super villains; after this Frank takes down Stilt-Man and Tinkerer. At least for the moment, Stuart seems to be serving in the capacity of Punisher's former weapons expert and information gatherer, Microchip. It should be noted that the Punisher had shot and killed Microchip.
The Hood has hired him as part of his criminal organization to take advantage of the split in the superhero community caused by the Superhuman Registration Act.
He later aided the Punisher in his war against crime.
