Not to mention that AIM is doing exactly what Artistsean described in the IM3 movie by creating Extremis soldiers.
I could definitely see Cage's inmate guinea pig backstory being retrofitted for AIM's Extremis soldier program. Only downside to that is that Cage wouldn't necessarily seem that unique, since there would be several Extremis Soldiers already (including Coldblood, Firepower, Ellen Brandt and a few others who haven't been named/ID'ed yet). You'd have to do something to differentiate Cage from just another "run of the mill" Extremis flunky.
