Chan Ho Yin was born in Hong Kong, and followed his idol Harry Houdini performing street magic. One day, he discovered his pyrokinesis after setting a towel on fire; the origins of his power are unknown. Yin was discovered by S.H.I.E.L.D. and placed on The Index, told to keep his abilities under wraps.

Recently, though, he was approached by a woman offering to increase his power and bring him fame, suggesting the name Scorch to sway him. Scorch was injected with Extremis, enhancing his abilities, and his heat-resistant blood platelets kept him from overheating as other Extremis users had done.

After a day or two of tests, Centipede drained the platelets from Chan's blood for their own serum and left him to be recovered by S.H.I.E.L.D. enraged by the Extremis and his own inflated ego, Yin went after Agent Coulson, May, and any Centipede scientists left in the building. Though using his powers left him in great pain, he went on a rampage until he detonated due to the Extremis (with a little extra juice injected by Agent May).
