Samuel Sterns dropped out of high school and became a regular worker at a government owned chemical research facility. One day, a canister filled with radioactive waste exploded and he was exposed to the gamma radiation that was emitted from the waste. The radiation made him extremely intelligent. Later, he dubbed himself the Leader and began making plans to conquer the world

Over the years, the Leader has tried several schemes to take over the world including: setting up a spy ring to overthrow the U.S government, stealing Bruce Banner’s Absorbatron, using the Hulk to steal the Watcher’s Ultimate Machine, taking over America’s nuclear missiles to start World War III, attempting to kidnap the President and Vice President of the United States so that he could replace them with androids, taking over the Gamma Base and attempting to using the base’s to control the world, irradiating Manhattan’s water supply in an effort to mutate everyone like himself, and attempting to alter Earth’s evolution so that mankind would evolve into gamma-irradiated beings under his control. Despite the diversity and complexity of his plans, he was constantly defeated by the savage and unpredictable nature of the Hulk.

Eventually, the Leader lost his powers. To regain them, he made a deal with the Gray Hulk in which he would cure Rick Jones of becoming a Hulk-like creature by draining his gamma energy into himself. The transfer resulted in the Leader developing a more mutated more and additional powers. Later, the Leader began concentrating on smaller schemes instead of a single grand plan. To this end, the Leader stole gamma bombs from the US government, lured the Hulk to Middletown, Arizona and nuked the city. Although the Hulk narrowly escaped death, the Leader collected the few citizens of Middletown who survived the detonation and made them his minions.

Later, the Leader made a deal with the Leader of the Pantheon, Agamemnon, in which Agamemnon would help him battle Hydra. But Agamemnon sent the Hulk. After the Hulk defeated Hydra, he battled the Leader and seemingly caused the Leader’s death. However, the Leader transferred his consciousness into to one of his minions,Omnibus, just prior to his death. In Omnibus’ form, the Leader caused global tension by creating a fictitious international terrorist group, The Alliance. “The Alliance” destroyed monuments, commercial vehicles, and governmental buildings around the world; each government believed that their enemy was funding The Alliance. However, the citizens of Freehold learned that “Omnibus” was behind “The Alliance” and exiled him in the Arctic.
