Since then, his purpose as a character has shifted a lot. At times, he's the penitent ex-villain, sometimes the reluctant hero, sometimes the cackling villain. These changes happen as suddenly as the shifts in temperature that define his powers.
For the purposes of this build, I'm aiming for Equinox around the time when he was working with Falcon to get his temper under control and had been out of the supervillain business for a while, because I found that character the easiest to connect with. Yes, he was more than a little problematic, given that he's kind of given a pass - by the guy who'd go on to be Captain America - but he tries so hard, and has a pretty unique reason for his bad temper.
