"If we succeed, there will not be any S.H.I.E.L.D. in the future, and those who have followed us here... will be out of time."

Luke was one of the Chronicom Hunters who was assigned to hunt down and destroy S.H.I.E.L.D. throughout time. In 1931, he assumed the identity of the NYPD captain William Dole to infiltrate the period and kill Freddy Malick. However, once the Hunters were followed by S.H.I.E.L.D. from the future, Luke was unsuccessful in his mission to prevent the rise of HYDRA. Arriving in 1955, Luke informed his former target, Malick, about Daniel Sousa's investigations against HYDRA and then approached him about joining forces.


Confrontation with S.H.I.E.L.D.

Finding his Disguise

"Captain William Dole? New York Police Department, 4th Precinct? I am a sentient Chronicom from the planet Chronyca-2."
"Good for you. Now beat it, before we make you freaks forget being born."
―Luke and William Dole[src]

Luke arrives in 1931

With the Chronicoms planning establish Chronyca-3 on Earth and having gained access to all secrets of S.H.I.E.L.D. by acquiring the Toolbox, Luke was assigned to lead a squad of Chronicom Hunters with the purpose of traveling back in time and prevent S.H.I.E.L.D. from being created. Together with Cain and Abel, Luke traveled to 1931 in order to kill Freddy Malick and prevent the rise of HYDRA. They, before proceeding with the mission, would need to disguise themselves as humans.


Luke steal the face of Captain William Dole

Upon arrival in New York City, Luke and his teammates, Cain and Abel, approached three NYPD officers who were expecting a shipment of illegal alcohol from Jimmy Bottles at Cut Rate Drugs. Luke introduced his race and home planet to Captain William Dole and took his Eraser out of a suitcase. Two policemen drew their weapons on the Hunters, just to be killed by Cain and Abel. Luke overpowered Dole and started the process to consume his identity before killing him. Shortly thereafter, the Hunters surprised and killed Bottles when he entered the pharmacy.[1]

Recognizing Quake

TND 11

Luke realizes that S.H.I.E.L.D. followed him

"Quake. She's here."

Luke impersonated William Dole in order to avoid arousing suspicion, but became worried when the New York City Police Department discovered Dole's and the other corpses rather quickly. Observing the investigation from a distance, Luke recognized Quake as she exited Cut Rate Drugs, and realized that S.H.I.E.L.D. had somehow followed him into the past. Luke, wanting to deal with the situation quickly, ordered Cain and Abel to kill Quake and anyone else who was there from S.H.I.E.L.D..[1]

Attack on Freddy Malick

"Who are you? Why are you doing this?"
"Because you are the thread."
Freddy Malick and Luke[src]

While Cain had been kidnapped as a result of the attack at Cut Rate Drugs, Luke and Abel prepared to attack their target, Freddy Malick. The two arrived at a political party. Luke ordered Abel to ensure the attack only happened after a handoff occurred.

Luke attempting to execute Freddy Malick

Luke and Abel watched Viola complete the handoff with Malick and promptly attacked the two HYDRA agents. Luke shot Viola, who fell to the ground, and prepared to shoot Malick. Luke approached him with the gun. Scared, Malick asked Luke who he was and why he was doing it. Luke referred to Malick as the thread that had to be pulled in order to prevent S.H.I.E.L.D. from existing. However, Daisy Johnson used her Inhuman abilities to push Luke and Abel to the kitchen. Luke told Johnson that he was looking forward for a fight with her.

Luke fighting Daisy Johnson and Phil Coulson

With the help of Abel, Luke briefly overpowered Johnson. However, Johnson was later joined by Phil Coulson. Luke started to fight Coulson, while Abel fought Johnson. Luke tried to use a pot to defend himself from Coulson's punch, but Coulson's robotic strength allowed him to dent the pot. Luke was defeated by Coulson, who also helped Johnson defeat Abel, while Alphonso Mackenzie and Deke Shaw brought Malick to safety.[1]

Searching for Targets

Know Your Onions - 19

Luke interrogates Ernest Koenig

"If you should see Wilfred Malick again, please let us know."
"Oh, I will. And if you find that no-good bum, you tell him not show his sourpuss around here again."
―Luke and Ernest Koenig[src]

Luke and Abel searched for Freddy Malick and the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents at The Krazy Kanoe, still under the guise of being NYPD officers, interrogating Ernest Koenig. However, the two failed to find them, and were notified that the agents' getaway car had been found.

Luke - 'Out of Time'

Luke talks about destroying S.H.I.E.L.D.

The Hunters went to the location where Alphonso Mackenzie, Deke Shaw, and Freddy Malick had left their getaway car, next to a train track. When Abel voiced his concern that S.H.I.E.L.D. could stop them, Luke assured him that there would not be any S.H.I.E.L.D. in the future if they were to succeed in killing Malick.[2]

Ambush at Hell's Harbor

"We failed. HYDRA will rise. S.H.I.E.L.D. will form."
―Luke to Abel[src]

Luke and Abel eventually found Freddy Malick, who was being protected by Alphonso Mackenzie and Deke Shaw, at Hell's Harbor. Shaw shot at them with a revolver, and the two took cover. The S.H.I.E.L.D. agents were eventually joined by Daisy Johnson, Phil Coulson, Ernest Koenig, and Enoch, who began engaging in the fight. Using his Chronicom Rifle, Luke kept shooting the agents.

Luke decides to finally abandon their battle

The S.H.I.E.L.D. agents distracted Luke and Abel while Malick completed the transaction, bringing the key ingredient to the Super Soldier Serum to HYDRA. Having failed the mission, and realizing that their window to Time Travel was closing, Luke ordered Abel to abandon the fight and return to the ship, despite Abel's protests.[2]

Reporting to Sibyl

Luke - AOS703

Luke discussing Project Helius with Sibyl

"Others have been sent in, have taken faces. Is Helius still a viable plan?"
"I've calculated every possible outcome. If done correctly, it will be brutal and exact."
―Luke and Sibyl[src]

Once the Chronicom Hunters' ship landed safely in the 1950s, Luke and Abel talked to Sibyl about their discovery that S.H.I.E.L.D. was following them, yet had not discovered the ship. Abel protested Sibyl's orders to self-destruct when compromise, but Sibyl defended herself, and Luke berated Abel as a mere Hunter. Luke reported that other Chronicoms were sent to Area 51, asking whether infiltrating Project Helius was still a viable plan, which Sibyl said it was.[3]

This section requires expansion


Luke, like other Chronicom Hunters, is cold in his actions. While he is able to take human form and blend in, his actions and mannerisms remain slightly robotic. He tends to use violence as a solution to get his way, and is a strong leader who was able to take charge of the mission to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D..
