"You know, it's kind of hard to trust someone when you don't know who that someone really is."
The subject of this article has been deemed non-canon because it contradicts the established movie continuity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and thus should not be taken as a part of the "real" MCU world.
"You'll see Iron Man rendered obsolete. By the next generation in offensive weapons. By me... the Melter!"

Bruno Horgan, also known as Melter, is the former owner of the robotics company who used Melter Armor to attack Iron Man but was defeated by Stark and War Machine.


Bruno Horgan was the owner of a start-up robotics company and developed a suit similar to Iron Man's Iron Man Armor. Horgan's presentation to United States Army was a failure, as the power source of the suit literally melted it, and later chances to show his creation were negated, even after claiming his creation was finally ready.

Sometime after the Battle of New York, Horgan attacked Stark during a press conference in front of the Stark Tower. After a quick victory, Horgan announced that he would be selling the designs of his technology in a few days. Two days later Horgan attacked, and with some effort, secured a victory over War Machine, leading both Stark and Rhodes to confront Horgan together. Horgan was promptly defeated and placed into U.S. military custody.[1]




  • In the non-canon video game Iron Man, the Melter works for A.I.M..[2]
  • In the comics, Bruno Horgan is driven into bankruptcy when Tony Stark proves that he is using inferior materials. Discovering that one of his faulty devices is capable of generating a beam capable of "melting" any metal, Horgan uses the device to become a criminal.
