Gerald Sharpe is a member of the United States Department of Defense.
In an alternate 1955, Gerald Sharpe visited the Flying Rocket Diner, loudly demanding coffee. When Madge brought it to him, he noticed a lack of creamer, and asked for some. He was offered creamer by Daisy Johnson and accepted, unaware of the drugs that had been placed in it. After drinking the coffee, he found himself disoriented.
Sharpe later woke up in a tent, confronted by Alphonso Mackenzie and Yo-Yo Rodriguez, demanding to know about who had access to Area 51, claiming that lives would be in danger if he did not tell them. Sharpe, believing them to be communist, refused to tell them, using a racist term toward Rodriguez and calling Mackenzie "boy." Rodriguez later returned with Melinda May, who tried interrogating him, but Sharpe's racism caused May to attempt to attack him, while Rodriguez stopped her.
May, Rodriguez, and Mackenzie later realized that Deke Shaw, who was white, might be able to convince Sharpe to talk, so Shaw entered the tent and told Sharpe that he was being tested by the United States government. He asked who had access to Area 51, but Sharpe saw through Shaw's lie and refused to tell him. He continued to say that Helius did not work, causing Shaw to come to a realization.
Sharpe eventually escaped the tent, causing him to see Zephyr One. The advanced technology led to confusion, and he demanded to know what kind of communists the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents were. Mackenzie said that he could explain, but then rendered Sharpe unconscious, not wanting to.
Shaw and Mackenzie left Sharpe in the desert and showed him the Quinjet. They pretended to be aliens, threatening to probe Sharpe if he ever told anybody about his experience with S.H.I.E.L.D.. Sharpe rushed to the Flying Rocket Diner and exclaimed that he had been abducted by aliens, insisting on his story despite Madge's lack of belief.
Sharpe is a patriotic but horribly arrogant and bigoted person. While he was against communists, he was also racist, as he refused to cooperate with Alphonso Mackenzie, Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Melinda May as they were people of color, though he had no issues speaking with Deke Shaw and assumed that Shaw was the person in charge.
