History

"I love Tony Stark. Tony loves me. We’re not competitors. Him being out of the picture created tremendous opportunities for Hammer Industries, you know?"
Justin Hammer to Christine Everhart[src]

Hammer Industries Headquarters, Queens, New York City

Hammer Industries competed for the trust of the US government with Stark Industries. When Tony Stark became publicly known as Iron Man, the scientists of Hammer Industries attempted to replicate the Iron Man armor but failed in all areas. The test pilot in the Hammer suit barely survived being twisted one-eighty degrees around. The footage of this incident was shown publicly by Tony Stark during his hearing with Senator Stern, to prove that there was no need for him to hand over the Iron Man armors to the U.S. government. Hammer was so jealous of Stark that he broke Ivan Vanko out of a Monaco  prison after he attempted to kill Stark at Circuit de Monaco. Hammer wanted Vanko to improve on his developing suits so that he could upstage Stark at the upcoming Stark Expo.[1]

Following the Battle of New York, Hammer Industries recovered some Chitauri metal. Hammer engineers created special bullets to use against enhanced individuals.[2]

A large amount of modified weapons developed by Hammer Industries was obtained by Diamondback. He set up a business deal with Cottonmouth to sell the weapons to criminals based in Harlem. He organized a big deal with Domingo Colon to sell him several assault rifles. But their henchmen were ambushed and killed by Shameek Smith, Dante Chapman and Chico Diaz. The three men stole all of the money. The truck with the rifles was then confiscated by New York City Police Department.[3]

Cottonmouth contacted Rafael Scarfe, a corrupt police detective who worked for him. He obtained Hammer guns from the evidence room and met with Stokes outside of New York City. Although Scarfe promised to give him back the guns, he revealed that he had decided to bribe him for some extra money. Cottonmouth refused and managed to shoot the detective. While Scarfe was bleeding out, Cottonmouth took his weapons back and left Scarfe.[4]
