"Now, which one of you is the chief engineer? I ask one more time, and then I start shooting. Who is this ship's chief engineer?"
―Lead HYDRA Agent[src]

The Lead HYDRA Agent was one of the HYDRA agents in charge on the aircraft carrier Iliad during the HYDRA Uprising.


HYDRA Uprising

"I don't like liars."
―Lead HYDRA Agent[src]

While working for HYDRA undercover within S.H.I.E.L.D., the Agent was stationed on board the Iliad. When HYDRA revealed itself to the world, the Agent betrayed his former S.H.I.E.L.D. colleagues and killed many of them during a firefight, taking the survivors, many of whom were injured, hostage. He watched the news reports on the Battle at the Triskelion and became annoyed that HYDRA would always be referred to as a Nazi organization.

The Agent turned to his hostages and demanded to know who the head engineer was or he would begin executing the hostages. Tim Maguire stood up and claimed it was him but Alphonso Mackenzie immediately told him that he was, in fact, the head engineer and Maguire were lying to protect him. Not liking liars, the Agent shot Maguire twice in the chest, killing him.

Before he could question Mackenzie, a strange device slid into the room. While he was looking at it, Bobbi Morse stormed through the doors and began shooting the HYDRA Agents. The Lead HYDRA Agent was able to take Susanna hostage, but before he could make his escape, he was killed when Isabelle Hartley threw her knife into the back of his neck.[1]



  • Glock 17: The Lead HYDRA Agent gathered the engineers of the Iliad and held them as hostages during the Battle on the Iliad, threatening them with a Glock 17 to learn the identity of the chief engineer. Tim Maguire stood up as the ship's engineer to protect Alphonso Mackenzie, the actual chief engineer, but when Mackenzie tried to save Maguire's life, the Lead HYDRA Agent simply shot him and threatened to kill Susanna if Mackenzie did not cooperate.
