Ian Quinn is an international businessman involved in various borderline criminal and criminal activities, who often found himself at odds with S.H.I.E.L.D. for his business dealings. He found Gravitonium and wanted to use it to further his corporate operations. He kidnapped Franklin Hall from S.H.I.E.L.D. protection to work on creating a way of harnessing the potential of gravitonium. Later, under blackmail and promise of the return of his gravitonium, Quinn began working with John Garrett and Cybertek. Quinn is currently allied with Raina.
