(2020 Rescue#2 (fb) - BTS) - Robbie Fleckman was bullied at high school and didn't like his stepfather. Generally angry at everything, he wanted to prove his tough masculinity by joining the insidious Hydra organization after graduating high school. Still new there, and with the computers unreliable (due to interference from Machine Man), he was bullied by more experienced Hydra employees into doing grunt work, like frustrating coffee runs before meetings.

(2020 Rescue#2) - Fleckman struggled with multiple exotic takeaway coffees for Hydra employees and clumsily dropped them. Pepper Potts, secretly infiltrating the Hydra base to find Howard Stark, helped him clean up. Soon after, Fleckman was part of a Hydra crowd at the unveiling of a giant skull-like Hydra-Bot and was taken as an (unwilling) "volunteer" to demonstrate the robot's surgical precision at cutting targets. But the Hydra-Bot went rogue, zapping agents. Potts quickly wrapped the Rescue armor around her and extracted Fleckman from the Hydra-Bot's tentacle, then left Fleckman in a quiet corridor while she confronted Howard. But smaller Hydra-Bots were now chasing Hydra agents and Fleckman sought help from Rescue. Fleckman was briefly targeted as a hostage by Howard. A giant Hydra-Bot  attacked and Fleckman clumsily threw a pocket knife at it; instead Rescue outwitted the robot. With the Hydra-Bot initiating its self-destruct sequence, Rescue suggested Fleckman run for safety. The main portion of the of the base soon exploded.
