(Iron Man Annual I#9 (fb) - BTS) - After Roxxon operative Sunturion (Arthur Dearborn) dissipated and was lost in the Gulf of Mexico, Roxxon developed a new Sunturion suit and tried to gather Dearborn's energy into it, but the experiment failed and the suit was lost at sea.

(Daredevil I#224 (fb) ) - Mike Stone worked as a truck driver for Continental Trucking, a company with mob affiliations that was participating in illicit drug-dealing. For years, Stone drove the New York to Miami route reliably, and he was eventually trusted enough to start driving large shipments of drugs. When Stone started dealing drugs on the side, Continental fired him and he was given threats on his life. On his final run to Florida, Stone went fishing and snagged the Sunturion suit from the water. He later tried it on for fun and realized it was painful to take off, more and more the longer he wore it. Not realizing his body was being converted into energy, he started developing super powers, including the ability to fly, to tune into specific sound frequencies, to teleport anywhere on Earth, and to fire microwave blasts which could burn down buildings and disintegrate human flesh. After struggling with unemployment for six months, he called his boss, Richard Knox, and warned him that he was coming after the company.

(Daredevil I#224 - BTS) - At Continental Trucking, Daredevil was fighting drug dealers, including Stanley, when he heard a flash of energy. He entered a room to find charred corpses, killed by Sunturion before he fled. Sunturion had grabbed a case that he thought was full of $700,000 dollars, not realizing he'd grabbed the personal briefcase of Abe Walker, a blind janitor.

(Daredevil I#224) - Out of his costume, Stone went to Wyman Insurance, saying he had the mob's money and drugs, but when they drew guns on him, he easily killed the men and set fire to the place. Sunturion went after Knox directly, but found Daredevil waiting for him. In the ensuing fight, Sunturion went mad with power and savagely attacked the hero, putting civilians in danger. Soon, he demonstrated before Knox that he could change back and forth into human form without even removing the suit. Daredevil opened the suit's mask and Stone dissipated into pure energy, seemingly killing him.

The first Sunturion, Arthur Dearborn, discovered after being reincorporated that Roxxon had tried to gather him in a new suit. The Sunturion suit that Mike Stone "fished" to the surface was this one.

Sunturion (Mike Stone) is related to, but distinct from:

But has no known connection to:

Richard Knox

(Daredevil I#224 (fb) - BTS) - The Wealthy Richard Knox ran the company of Continental Trucking, a front organization for the mob that dealt in illegal drugs, working with corrupt companies like Wyman Insurance. When truck driver Mike Stone began dealing drugs on the side, he was fired, but he found a strange energy suit in the ocean, he tried it on and became the super-powered Sunturion. Stone called and warned Knox that he was coming after the company. Knox heard that Sunturion had killed his men, stolen drugs and money, and had killed employees at Wyman. He also heard Daredevil was investigating, and he expected both men to show up at his office.

(Daredevil I#224) - Knox saw Daredevil attack and easily defeat Knox's personal security, who he had told not to use lethal force. Daredevil confronted Knox, who told him the truth about Mike Stone and Sunturion. Daredevil wondered if he should just let Knox die, but Knox reasoned that the hero would protect him. Soon, Sunturion attacked but found Daredevil waiting. After a battle, Knox saw Daredevil open Sunturion's suit and Mike Stone was seemingly killed as he dissipated into energy. Daredevil then took Knox to jail.

(Daredevil I#224 (fb) - BTS) - Stanley, hating the rain in Cleveland, moved to New York City and took a job at Contitental Trucking, a company that dealt in illicit drug deals.

(Daredevil I#224) - Stanley stood guard outside in the rain when Daredevil attacked. Stanley reached for his gun, but Daredevil punched him in the gut and jaw before rushing inside.

Abe Walker

(Daredevil I#224 (fb) - BTS) - Abraham Eulorial Walker was a long-time employee of Continental Trucking, where he spent twenty years working on the loading docks. When Abe's wife died, all he had to remember her by was an old locket that he carried to work with him every day. After a stroke left him blind, the company moved Abe inside to do janitorial work, allowing him to keep his pension.

   Abe was in the room at Continental Trucking when Sunturion murdered several men. Sunturion then stole Abe's briefcase, the one with the locket inside, mistaking it for one full of cash.

(Daredevil I#224) - Daredevil found Abe there and, realizing he was blind, got him to safety. They went to the Big A Café, where Daredevil told Abe that Continental Trucking had mob and drug connections, surprising Abe, who realized the company probably kept him on because he was blind and couldn't identify anyone. Abe showed Daredevil the case full of cash, saying Sunturion had stolen his briefcase. Daredevil returned the locket to Abe, who didn't realize there wasn't even a photo inside. Abe walked away smiling.
