About Aldrich Killian, from the Official Marvel Database:

"Dr. Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) is a brilliant scientist working for the FuturePharm Corporation in Austin, Texas alongside Dr. Maya Hansen (Rebecca Hall). Together they developed Extremis, an attempt to create a new super soldier. The Extremis is a techno organic virus that completely rewrites the body's genetic code. It replaces entire organs making them more efficient. The virus also gives the body a sort of healing factor. The original Extremis grants super human strength, speed, endurance, reflexes and the ability to project electricity and breathe fire.

He steals a sample and sells it to a terrorist group. The group, based in a slaughterhouse in Bastrop, Texas, injects a willing test subject called Mallen. A bizarre physical change overtakes him; his horrified compatriots flee the room but lock him in it. The injected man's body, still lying in the Bastrop warehouse, is now covered completely in a bizarre layer of scar tissue.

Days later at Futurepharm Corporation offices, Dr. Aldrich Killian commits suicide at his computer; his suicide note informing co-worker Maya Hansen that he has stolen the Extremis serum for an undisclosed purpose."

Iron Man 3 was released May 3rd, 2013.
