Ashton Biotechnics is a biotechnology company, most likely American in origin. Three of the top scientists recruited to work at Biotechnics were Dr. Koenig, Dr. Jonathan Vale, and Dr. Dolores Vale. They first worked on a project to make living cells absorb energy more efficiently but it failed. The Vale's transferred to a secret project that led to the birth of Shenice, an artificial super soldier. The Vale's couldn't go through with letting the company proceed with their plans and went on the run with Shenice.

After teaming with Static and Gear, the Vale's went into a federal witness protection program. Eventually, the government arrested all parties associated with and shut down the company. Dr. Koenig later used the company headquarters as his hideout and forced the Vale's to aid him in his project. Gear managed to find an old annual report with a photograph of the three scientists. Koenig was defeated when he fell through the headquarters' underground parking lot.
