"I'm doing my best."
―Aloysius Samberly[src]

Aloysius Herbert Samberly was the leading scientist working for the Strategic Scientific Reserve branch in Los Angeles.

Biography

Early Life

Cruel Father

Aloysius Samberly had a father who told him that he would never be a success.[1]

SSR Agent

Never Invited

Though he had the opportunity to work for Isodyne Energy,[2] as one of eleven organizations that sought him, [1] Samberly decided to use his skills as a scientist in the Strategic Scientific Reserve. He was placed under the command of Daniel Sousa, who personally interviewed him, when a branch of the organization was created in Los Angeles. Samberly became displeased when he saw agents going out for drinks after hours without inviting him. He figured that the discrimination was because lab technicians like himself did not carry guns and probably were not perceived as real agents.[2]

Not Ice

"That's not ice."
―Aloysius Samberly[src]

Chief Sousa and Peggy Carter gave Samberly a sample of the ice that enveloped the corpse of Jane Scott since Medical Examiner Meltzer of the Los Angeles Police Department did not have an autopsy ready. Samberly learned that the sample was not ice, but could not give a determination as to what it was. When Chief Sousa asked if he knew anything else, Samberly said he was trying his best. Then the technician gave a speech wondering why he was never invited for drinks. Learning his name, Sousa told Samberly that he could go the next time the others went. Pleased, Samberly revealed that Scott glowed in the dark because of exposure to a Particle Accelerator.[2]

Samberly was convinced by Sousa to give him the sample from Scott so that the intruding FBI agents would not procure it.[3]

Joining the Field Agents

"I went to the SSR because I was told I had an opportunity to use my expertise in field operations."
"Who told you that?"
"You did, Chief Sousa. Don't you remember?"
―Aloysius Samberly and Daniel Sousa[src]

Samberly was approached by Daniel Sousa and Peggy Carter, who handed him a slice of pie. When Samberly asked for the catch, Sousa revealed that Carter needed some of his technology. He offered the Memory Inhibitor, but when he tried to demonstrate how it worked on Sousa, Sousa quickly refused. Samberly then told them that Jerry was used for testing, though he did not remember; Samberly warned not to use the device too often on a subject because of possible brain damage.

Later, Sousa and Carter returned to the laboratory, and Samberly found them touching different devices. Carter feigned that they were there to return the Memory Inhibitor, and asked if they could borrow something else. Samberly initially refused, before Rose Roberts entered, asking him how he liked the pie that she had baked. Instantly willing to help, Samberly told Sousa that he would allow his technology on the mission, but he was coming along.[1]

First Field Assignment

"You are the smartest person in this building. You got this."
Rose Roberts[src]

The team preparing to get the rods

Samberly and Rose Roberts arrived to the heavily guarded Roxxon Warehouse in a minivan containing Peggy Carter, Daniel Sousa, and Edwin Jarvis hidden inside; they pretended to be a lost married couple seeking directions. Samberly was very pleased to pretend to be Roberts' husband, constantly touching and hugging her when he got the chance. To incapacitate the rude guards, Samberly activated a device that drew electricity from the fence into the guards' bodies.

Inside, Carter warned everyone to stay alert, so Samberly activated his Motion Detector so they would know if any other guards were nearby. Samberly deactivated the locks on the warehouse's doors, but Carter noted that the doors were also now opened to Whitney Frost to find an Atomic Bomb.

Finding a bomb, Jarvis got trapped inside with it as Samberly accidentally crossed two wires in the electronic locking system. He grew nervous because everyone was yelling for him to open the door, but Roberts calmed him to do his work. Samberly asked Roberts for a date, but she told him to focus on his task. When Sousa kept asking Samberly about his progress with freeing Jarvis, who was transferring the uranium rods of the bomb to a lead containment case, Samberly told Sousa to focus on not causing an atomic explosion.

Samberly got the door open as Jarvis contained the uranium rods; Sousa told him, Roberts, and Jarvis to leave the warehouse in ten minutes with or without him and Carter, who went to confront Frost. Later, he and Roberts secured the rods in a safe location as Jarvis and Sousa went to the house of Violet to have her attend to Carter's wounds.[1]

Building the Cannon

Samberly discusses the Gamma Cannon

While setting up for a trade off with Whitney Frost, uranium rods, which were fake, for Jason Wilkes. They got a telegram with code from Howard Stark, Samberly looked at it and said it wasn't code, but design specifications. He gathered that it was a design for a cannon that could eliminate Zero Matter.[4]

Mission at the Mojave Desert

At Auerbach Theatrical Agency, Samberly boasted to Rose Roberts that he was going on a dangerous mission. At the Mojave Desert, the Zero Matter rift had opened, so Samberly set up the Gamma Cannon, but said he wasn't sure if it worked. They lined up the cannon and put their safety glasses on. The laser hit the portal and closed it.[4]

Captured

Afterwards, Jack Thompson and Daniel Sousa looked into the distance and saw an SSR car driving towards them, Vega and Blackwell were in it. Sousa told them they were Vernon Masters' men, so they thought of a plan. When the two men arrived, Sousa had Thompson at gun point. Vega quickly put his gun on Sousa and Thompson encouraged them to apprehend Sousa and Samberly. Thompson then insisted that he was on Vega's side before the two were apprehended.

In a cell, Thompson explained to Masters a plan to kill Whitney Frost, but Sousa and Samberly were an integral part of the plan. Masters agreed to let them go. Samberly then went to work on fixing the Gamma Cannon. Thompson approached him and told him Sousa wants it turned into a bomb, although that was a lie. After he fixed it, he talked to Rose Roberts inside and bragged to her. Suddenly, Sousa and Peggy Carter urged him to give them his car as Masters sabotaged theirs. Samberly then said they were just following the plan, which confused the two. Samberly explained that Thompson told him to turn the cannon into a bomb. They then forced Samberly to build a fail switch.[5]

Stopping Thompson

Samberly finished the switch outside of Whitney Frost's facility. Suddenly, Thompson ran over to him and puleld his gun on Samberly. Despite Carter's pleads, Samberly turned the detonator back on. Thompson prepared to detonate the cannon, but Carter pulled her gun on him. The building then exploded, but Thompson insisted he never pressed the button.[5]

The Rift Generator

Samberly, Howard Stark, and Jason Wilkes think of a name for the Rift Generator

With stolen plans from Whitney Frost, Samberly, Howard Stark, and Jason Wilkes created a Rift Generator, but argued on what to name it. After getting told to stop by Peggy Carter, Samberly remembered that they had to open it in an isolated area. Stark proposed to do it in his movie studio.

At the studio, Samberly set up the Gamma Cannon, as well as turning on the rift. However, he fainted when Frost arrived. He woke up to find that the Zero Matter was expelled from Frost, but the rift wouldn't close. Edwin Jarvis went and got Stark's self driving Hovercar. He then sent it into the rift and detonated the bombs inside. This closed the rift. Samberly celebrated with Jack Thompson who asked where he was. Samberly admitted that he fainted.[6]
