|Name||Roxxon Oil and Energy Corporation|
|Location||New York City, Denver Colorado|
|First Appearance||Alpha Flight #11 (in Alpha Flight)|
The Roxxon Corporation became interested in James Hudson's armours after they were approached by Jerome Jaxon who knew of their interest in alternate energy sources, and their willingness to dabble in illegal activities. They supplied him with a robotic assistant, Delphine Courtney, as well as various resources, including the Influencer (a device capable of manipulating people's emotions). To lure Hudson away from the rest of Alpha Flight, Roxxon offered him a job in New York, which he readily accepted as he was no long employed by the Canadian government. Jaxon and Delphine were defeated, but at the cost of Hudson's life. Or so it seemed.
Shortly after his apparent death, his body was discovered by a Roxxon ship in an alien vessel adrift in the ocean. Discovering that he was now a cyborg, they connected him to their computer systems and kept him prisoner. Delphine used the knowledge gained from Hudson to re-create his armour, as well as to impersonate him in an attempt to destroy Alpha Flight. Delphine was apparently in a following battle by Madison Jefferies.
Roxxon later attempted to obtain Heather McNeil's armour (which was created using the remains of Delphine Courtney by Madison Jefferies and Roger Bochs) by employing the Mauler and the three Raiders. Heather was able to defeat Mauler while Alphans Box I, Aurora, Northstar and Puck finished off the Raiders. Heather never discovered that it was Roxxon who sent the mercenaries after her armour.
Diamond Lil. Assisted by the X-Man Forge, and Roxxon meta-employee Windshear, it was discovered that the presence which had infiltrated Roxxon and taken over several of its systems was actually Hudson, whom they had been kept prisoner. While Jeffries and his crew were attempting to separate Hudson from the Roxxon systems, the Facility Coordinator Samuel Higgins, decided it was time to "cut their losses". When Higgins attempted to kill Hudson it triggered his fail-safe security devices. The facility exploded and killed many civilians who were inside; the blame fully on the Higgins and Roxxon.
Disgusted by Roxxon's actions, Windshear quit his position in favour of becoming a member of Alpha Flight.
