"Our May Life-Model Decoy should get us the Darkhold, eventually. And if something goes wrong, then we have our safety net."
"You're referring to the other android, now in operation."
"Yes, our second LMD."
Holden Radcliffe and Aida[src]

Holden Radcliffe was the Life-Model Decoy of his creator, Holden Radcliffe, that was captured, interrogated and subsequently destroyed by S.H.I.E.L.D.


Tricking S.H.I.E.L.D.

Speaking to May's LMD

In order to avoid capture at the hands of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the case that their plan to obtain the Darkhold would fail, Holden Radcliffe and Aida created the LMD Holden Radcliffe. LMD Radcliffe eventually took the place of the real Radcliffe, and was arrested when LMD May, who had discovered the truth about her true nature, confronted him about the fact.[2]

Deception Uncovered

He was placed in a Containment Room at the Playground, where Leo Fitz confronted LMD Radcliffe about his betrayal. Realizing that he was not talking to the real Radcliffe, Fitz took the guard's handgun and shot LMD Radcliffe in the head, destroying him in the process. He is the first LMD to be destroyed.[2]

Leo Fitz's Questioning

He was re-activated by Leo Fitz, who was rejoined by Jemma Simmons and Alphonso Mackenzie, to know where is the real Holden Radcliffe and Aida but he refused to cooperate. Later, Fitz tries to know it as pirating his Quantum Brain, but through Radcliffe's words Simmons understands that Melinda May with them is a LMD. She prevents Daisy Johnson who helps Phil Coulson to neutralize her. Holden Radcliffe LMD is later destroyed for good, melted in a furnace, by Fitz, Simmons and Mackenzie.[1]
