HistoryLeonard Williams was a young skinny teenager who suffered from polio, and depended on crutches to get around. He was the most outstanding and well-applied student at his university. Bruce Banner had served as his mentor in his youth. The two worked together in the range of radiation, which, years later, led Bruce Banner to develop the gamma bomb that turned him into the Incredible Hulk. Leonard believed that he could succeed where his mentor failed, and develop a gamma compound that would be the true "cure for all evil."
At the age of eighteen, Leonard graduated from university and began researching ways to synthesize a gamma compound from the notes of the scientist who created the Super-Soldier Serum. Because of his polio, Leonard didn't want to risk the lives of others in a dangerous experiment, and chose to experiment on himself with the gamma compound. Years later, once he finished it, he injected it into his bloodstream while in a chamber that bombarded him with gamma rays. However, an unexpected surge in radiation caused an explosion in his lab, killing his team of assistants and causing him to become an African-American Hulk. He was officially pronounced dead, but he survived and fled, now a much more powerful being with darker green skin (due to his darker skin in his normal form) known as the Black Hulk.
He settled in South America, where he assumed the identity of Tyrone Cash and took command of the local criminal cartels and lived like a king. Later, War Machine sought to recruit him for the Avengers. He only agreed when he threatened to tell his mother and younger brother what had really happened to him. After he joined the Avengers, he fought the Abomination and stole information on the Super-Soldier Serum before returning to South America. There, he sold the Super-Soldier Serum information on the black market, and Nick Fury found out and made Charles Xavier dominate him psychically, resulting in his return to his normal form. Then Xavier erased all knowledge about the Super-Soldier Serum from his mind, and Tony Stark deleted any remaining information from his computers. Not being able to change back to his Black Hulk form, he found it difficult to keep track of his criminal enterprise. Tyrone later confessed that he was secretly working for the scientists behind Captain America, who were not happy with the use of the serum.
Recently, Fury sought Leonard out with a proposal: he would have his powers unlocked by Charles Xavier and would resume his identity as Black Hulk to participate in a project that Fury was developing called the "Supreme Avengers," but this time he would cooperate completely. If Fury noticed any attempt to take advantage of the situation or betray him, all the dirty secrets that he had as a young criminal leader would be revealed to the public, especially his mother and younger brother. With no other choice, Leonard accepted, and is now part of the "Supreme Avengers" with his Black Hulk powers restored.
