"Roxxon, they can be dangerous."
Ivan Hess[src]

The Roxxon Corporation is one of the world's largest conglomerates. In the 1940s, it had ties to the Council of Nine since the founder of Roxxon Hugh Jones was also part of the council.

History

Destruction of the Roxxon Refinery

In 1946 an employee of Roxxon named Miles Van Ert developed a Nitramene weapon based on a formula created by Howard Stark. Van Ert collaborated with Leet Brannis in this project, who was a former operative for the organization called Leviathan. When SSR Agent Peggy Carter infiltrated the Roxxon Refinery, she stumbled upon these two. She was discovered, and Brannis dropped a Nitramene-bomb to help in his escape. Brannis, Carter and Van Ert survived the resulting implosion that destroyed the Refinery.[1]

Two days later Hugh Jones, the President of the Roxxon Corporation, had a meeting with SSR officials regarding the implosion. They concluded that whoever was responsible would emit Vita Radiation, as Jones knew about the Nitramene formula through corporate espionage in Stark Industries. They scanned the Roxxon employees, which led to the arrest of Van Ert.[2]

Acquiring Isodyne

In 1952, Roxxon acquired all the assets of Isodyne Energy[3]

Destruction of the Roxxon Gulf Platform

In the 2000s, the Roxxon Gulf Platform in Lake Bourne was destroyed in a massive explosion, killing many employees and placing the engineer Ivan Hess into a catatonic state, as well as indirectly leading to the death of the Roxxon scientist Nathan Bowen. The company immediately shifted the blame on Bowen and seized most of his information about the facility.[4][5]

Grand Prix de Monaco Historique

Tony Stark participated as the driver of the car sponsored by Stark Industries at the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique. One of the opponents during the race was sponsored by the Roxxon Corporation.[6]

New Mexico Gas Station

Over the course of time Roxxon began to set up gas stations all over the United States of America. Travelling through New Mexico at night, Agent Phil Coulson of S.H.I.E.L.D. stopped at one of these Roxxon Gas Stations. While he was trying to decide between two sets of donuts, two thieves entered the gas station. Coulson deceived the thieves and stopped the robbery, rendering them unconscious. He paid for both sets of donuts with the shocked store clerk, and recommended for her to tell the police that she was able to disarm the robbers using Tae Bo techniques learnt from videotapes.[7]

Clint Barton stopped at the same Roxxon gas station Coulson stopped the night before, coming across the police yellow tape and correctly guessing that a "guy in a black suit" thwarted the theft.[8]

Roxxon Norco Oil Slick

The Roxxon Corporation faced scandal when the tanker Roxxon Norco spilled a million gallons of crude oil off the coast of Pensacola, Florida. Thanks to Roxxon's political ties to President Matthew Ellis, not one Roxxon executive saw a day in court.

As part of Aldrich Killian's scheme to kill the President and install Vice-President Rodriguez in his stead, the Mandarin staged the execution of Thomas Richards, a Roxxon accountant. Furthermore, when the Kidnapping of President Ellis took place, Killian used the Roxxon tanker in an attempt to show a connection, even though Killian did not care either way about the scandal or the Roxxon Corporation.[9]

Landman and Zack

Parish Landman and his team of lawyers, including interns Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson, worked for the Roxxon Corporation in a case against a former employee of the Londonderry, New Hampshire plant. The employee, who felt sick at that time, shared information about the plant with his doctor so that he could find out what was wrong with him. The Roxxon Corporation, who vigorously defends its patents in relation to the extraction and refinement process, did not accept this and decided to pursue damages.[10]

Batesville Gas Station

While at work in the gas station, Taylor, the shop attendant, blamed one of his customers, Hannah Hutchins, for the explosion at the StatiCorp facility. He argued that one of the victims, Jack Benson, was his friend and Benson's wife blamed Hutchins. Even though Hutchins wanted to leave the store, Taylor continued to confront her.

Unbeknownst to both Taylor and Hutchins, Tobias Ford, who has been stuck between two worlds and followed Hutchins to the store, started trying to protect Hutchins by throwing cans at Taylor. Both Taylor and Hutchins think it is her doing it. Taylor ran away scared by the attack, while Ford caused the gas station to explode. Not knowing it was not her fault, Hutchins blamed herself for the explosion of the gas station.[11]

Drilling in New Orleans

This section requires expansion

8 years after the Roxxon Gulf Platform's collapse, Nathan Bowen's daughter, Tandy, began investigating her father's death, discovering that the rig was actually drilling for a more powerful substance that gave her and Tyrone Johnson their powers. Tandy eventually confronted the head of the Gulf Division of Roxxon, Peter Scarborough, over her father, leaving him to die inside a collapsing construction site. Scarborough escaped, however, and despite paying Tandy handsomely for her silence, nevertheless sent an assassin after her and her mother.[12] Unfortunately, Tandy survived the attempt on her family.[13][14] After rescuing Mina Hess, she confronted Scarborough in the elevator at Roxxon Gulf Building, having seen firsthand the substance's effects on humans. Ultimately, Tandy took away his hopes for money and power, leaving him trapped in the same catatonic state Ivan Hess had been in. After Tandy and Tyrone worked together to save the city, Roxxon was universally blamed for starting the Terror outbreak.[14]
