Julien Beckers is the Belgian Minister of Foreign Affairs and a member of HYDRA.
Beckers debated with Senator Christian Ward on his proposal to create a task force that would apprehend all S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in the United States as terrorists. Beckers said that Ward's proposal violated civil liberties. Ward told him that S.H.I.E.L.D. can go to his country to operate.
Agent Noelle Walters and her team were directed by Phil Coulson to protect Beckers when it was discovered that Marcus Scarlotti and his mercenaries were looking for him. Unknown to Walters and Coulson, they sought him because he was their ally.
Walters arrived at the S.H.I.E.L.D. Safe House in Bruges to find Beckers already there. As she was warning him that Scarlotti wanted him, Scarlotti's mercenaries attacked her and Beckers showed her the bodies of her teammates. Beckers then left Walters at the mercy of Scarlotti.
