History

The Roxxon Oil Company is one of the largest fuel conglomerates around the world, which generates billions of dollars in profits each year with their business extraction, refining and manufacturing of products related to oil, through its many holdings. Like any business enterprise, the goal of Roxxon is to increase their profits, and it is not clear that all its businesses are entirely legitimate, in fact, the Roxxon has been involved in many activities morally questionable or illegal, but this fact is unknown to most consumers in Roxxon, and the general public.

Roxxon jumped to fame as something more than a business enterprise, when its then chairman, Hugh Jones, was abducted by the second Serpent Squad. Squad members were actually agents of the Serpent Crown, an object of great mystical power, built by the evil Set, who ordered them to a kidnap Jones. The goal was to use Jones to make Roxxon use their machines to investigate the sunken city of Lemuria. Captain America, in his short career as the Nomad, rescued Jones, clashed with Serpent Squadron, and prompted the Crown was lost. However, Jones was forced to put the Crown in his period of captivity, and since then, a mental link between the Crown and Jones, which would last for a lifetime.

This mental nexus between Jones and the Crown, led by the director of Roxxon traced the Crown, and sent their men to recover. Employees of Roxxon found the Crown, and Jones was placed on his head, making it invisible to anyone knew. Porting the Crown, Jones worked in this subversive plans to dominate the government of the USA through a corporate conspiracy, and even came into contact with its counterpart in another dimension, in the Land of the Squadron Supreme. The Avengers were brought in the plans of Jones, and were transported to the Land of Squadron, which regained the Serpent Crown that the president of Earth, allowing the Squadron Supreme liberate their world, while the Avengers were carried Crown Snake their world .

Inadvertently, while spared the land of Squadron, the Avengers brought their world more of a threat, to cause two Serpent Crown lived in the same earth. The avengers known as Vision, dropped in the middle of the Pacific Serpent Crown, believing that there nobody could find it. But the link mental Jones allowed him to locate it, and formed his own version of the Serpent Squadron, consisting of operating its own Roxxon, genetically mutated. Despite opposition from Stingray and Thing, operating Roxxon recovered the Crown, and then that the second will be delivered the Crown by leader Squadron, Sidewinder, Jones, is moved to Washington DC, where he began controlling the minds of members of Congress, using the power of the two Crowns. His plans were aborted by Stingray , The Thing and the Scarlet Witch. Finally, the Thing managed to start the Crown of the head of Jones. He went crazy because of their traumatic separation of the Crown, or even months after the Crown was destroyed, Jones remained in a mental hospital. The place of Jones as chairman of the Roxxon, was occupied by John T. Gamelin, previously vice president in charge of foreign matters.

The more expensive and more elaborate project of Roxxon, was the installation of Star Well, a satellite camera capable of collecting solar energy and sending to Earth in the form of microwaves. The designer of this space station was Doctor Arthur Dearborn, who submitted to a voluntary mutagenic treatment that transformed him into Sunturion. After an accident that killed over two-hundred people in Iowa, Iron Man went to investigate and discovered a camouflaged radar installation. At the end of the investigation, Sunturion was apparently sacrificed to destroy the Star Well that threatened to project its destructive power on Earth. The remaining components of the Star Well continued to operate in orbit.

Illegal activities of the Roxxon have not always remained hidden in the eyes of the government. Raymond Royton of the Department of Justice appointed a special investigator on possible illegal activities within Roxxon, who in turn, hid any evidence of fraud within the company. Nevertheless, Roxxon was unable to prevent the opening of an inquest into its scientific branch, the Brand Corporation, whose illegal activities were brought to light by the actions of Spider-Man and Will o'Wisp. To cover any possible investigation that linked him with the Brand Corporation, the president of Roxxon closed all Brand plants, including its main facility in Queens, New York. This demonstrated to the public that Roxxon had nothing to do with activities attributed to the Brand Corporation, whose facilities remain closed to this day.

Roxxon has developed other illicit activities, such as the kidnapping of the comatose body of James Hudson, a project to abduct several to analyze their superhuman powers, or join a conglomerate of major companies to launch an attack on the Stark Company. Most recently Captain America uncovered a sinister plot involving Roxxon CEO Calvin Hardeman. Hardeman was indicted and replaced as CEO by Don Kaminski in Captain America Annual 1999.
