Raz Malhotra is a computer technician whose former field study was in artificial intelligence at the time when Hank Pym started to rid the world of them. Many companies shut down their A. I. s before Raz could graduate. He started working on a tech-support company called Techbusters in San Francisco. Upon resurfacing following his apparent death, Egghead read Raz's dissertion called "Breakthroughs in Moral Paradigms for Artificial Intelligence. " Egghead decided to lure him into his lair under the guise of wanting support for his mac book. When Raz Malhotra arrived to Egghead's base, Egghead revealed his true intentions of wanting Malhotra to use his knowledge to power up artificial duplicates of the Avengers called the A. I. Vengers he had stolen from Hank Pym. Malhotra repudiated Egghead's evil intentions, forcing the villain to use a neural override device to control him. Egghead's plans attracted the attention of Hank Pym and Scott Lang. When Raz breaks free from the neural override, he shuts down the A. I. Vengers as Hank Pym knocks out Egghead. Some months later after Hank Pym seemingly perishes in the fight against Ultron, Hank Pym left one of his labs to Scott Lang who sent Raz a present in the form one of the Giant-Man uniforms. It was also revealed that Raz has a boyfriend.
