Biography

Agent of HYDRA

Double Agent

Jack Rollins joined HYDRA and infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D., becoming a part of the STRIKE team with other agents of HYDRA inside S.H.I.E.L.D., including Alexander Pierce and Brock Rumlow.[1]

Recovering Loki's Scepter

In 2012, following the Battle of New York, Rollins was present along with his STRIKE unit, Brock Rumlow and Jasper Sitwell at Stark Tower, where they were tasked by HYDRA to recover Loki's Scepter. Black Widow gave them the Scepter before the Avengers brought Loki and the Tesseract to the first floor, where they met Alexander Pierce and his STRIKE team. Rollins then accompanied Sitwell, Rumlow and his fellow agents to take the Scepter to Doctor List to be studied, but not before informing Pierce that they were on route towards List.[2]

Lemurian Star

Rollins joined STRIKE, Captain America, and the Black Widow in freeing the Lemurian Star from the control of Algerian pirate, Georges Batroc. As they prepared to board the ship, Rollins was both impressed and shocked to see Rogers leap from the Quinjet without a parachute. Rollins and the rest of STRIKE then attacked the ship silently after Rogers had taken out most of the guards. Rollins and Rumlow blew open a door and shot the remaining guards in a quick, coordinated fashion before escaping with the hostages, including Jasper Sitwell.[1]

HYDRA Uprising

Chase of Captain America

"Negative at the source."
"Give me a floor rundown."
―Jack Rollins and Brock Rumlow[src]

As the end of Project Insight approached, Rollins was ordered by Alexander Pierce to capture Captain America in an elevator. Rollins entered the elevator alongside Brock Rumlow and the rest of STRIKE, cornering Rogers. Rogers, however, became suspicious and noticed a bead of sweat coming out Rollins' neck; he gave the team a final chance to escape. Rollins instead attacked Rogers with Taser Rods only to be knocked unconscious. When he awoke, he found the rest of STRIKE had likewise been defeated and Rogers had escaped. Rollins later joined STRIKE on several unsuccessful attempts to capture Rogers, including searching in a shopping mall and the destroyed Camp Lehigh.[1]

Capturing Captain America

"Put the gun down. Not here, not here!"
Brock Rumlow to Jack Rollins[src]

Eventually STRIKE captured Captain America, Black Widow, and Falcon after their fight with the Winter Soldier. Rollins held a rifle to the back of Rogers' head, wanting to kill him after his beating in the elevator.

Rollins and Rumlow prepare to kill Steve Rogers

Rumlow ordered him not to fire, as a news helicopter hovered above them, preferring to wait until they were clear of the media to kill the three. They drove their hostages to a secure location and once they were clear, Rollins drew his gun while Rumlow ordered his men to dig three graves. However, when they opened the doors to execute them, Rollins and Rumlow discovered they had escaped with the help of Maria Hill and a Mouse Hole device.

Rollins then guarded Winter Soldier when he was taken to the Ideal Federal Savings Bank to have his damaged arm repaired. Alexander Pierce and Rumlow then arrived and Rollins witnessed Pierce talk to the Winter Soldier. Pierce was able to coax him into compliance before erasing his memories once again. Rollins and Rumlow then escorted Pierce from the building.[1]

Battle at the Triskelion

"Arrest him."
Singh to Jack Rollins[src]

As Captain America revealed to all S.H.I.E.L.D. agents the truth about Project Insight and HYDRA, specifically naming STRIKE as HYDRA traitors, Rollins was ordered by Alexander Pierce to take the members of the World Security Council hostage with a team of STRIKE soldiers. Rollins complied with the order, until Hawley revealed herself to be Black Widow in disguise and proceeded to incapacitate Rollins and the other STRIKE members guarding the council.[1]

Time Heist

Theft of the Mind Stone

Rollins intercepted by Captain America

In an alternate 2012, when Rollins and the STRIKE team arrived at Stark Tower to collect the Scepter, they were intercepted in the elevator by Captain America, unaware he was from 2023. Captain America asked for them to hand over the Scepter, but they refused, as they were secretly apart of HYDRA. However, using his future knowledge, Captain America pretended to also be a HYDRA agent, tricking them into giving him the Scepter.[2]

Personality

As a member of both STRIKE and HYDRA, Rollins is no nonsense individual. He appears to only be concerned with the fulfillment of his missions, to the point that he was willing to execute Captain America in broad daylight under a news helicopter, and only lowered his rifle after being urged to do so multiple times by Brock Rumlow. Rollins rarely shows emotion, only showing the smallest bit of awe when Captain America jumped from a plane without a parachute.

Abilities

  • Expert Combatant: As a member of STRIKE team, Rollins is a formidable hand-to-hand combatant. Rollins was able to hold his own against Captain America for tasering him when the whole STRIKE team tried to subdue him, though he was ultimately defeated.
  • Expert Marksman: Rollins is a very accurate marksman skilled in sharpshooting, being able to accurately land a single shot to a target's head without needing a second shot.
  • Expert Spy: Rollins managed to hide his true identity as a HYDRA sleeper agent from S.H.I.E.L.D., forming a team partnership with Captain America in the process of doing operative missions.
