Norris was an experienced scientist with a mercenary mentality. He would work for any employer as long as the pay was decent. He had no visions or goals of his own. That changed when he was hired by Dr. Dane Whitman to assist him with his experiments. Whitman had recently inherited the equipment of his uncle Nathan Garret and needed help to master it. Norris was under the impression that he did most of the work. While Whitman would get the credit for any discovery.
Their joined experiment involved sending magnetic waves containing messages to outer space, hoping that sentient alien would pick them up and respond. Someone did respond. Dane was about to have a breakthrough in the communications. When Norris knocked him out and decided to claim credit for the experiments. Feeling it was his one chance for fame and riches. Unfortunately for him, the "alien sentience" was Magneto, long exiled in space.
Magneto used the magnetic waves to teleport himself and the Toad to Garrett castle. Norris was terrified at them. He attempted to reverse the process and teleport them back to space. But Magneto simply knocked him out with a wrench.
