"Once Project Insight launches, the whole game is gonna change."
"What do you mean?"
"Let's just say we're not gonna be working underground much longer."
―Mark Basso and Mark Smith[src]

Mark Basso is a HYDRA operative, working deep undercover as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., assigned to transport the Scepter to Sokovia for Wolfgang von Strucker's HYDRA cell.


Mark Basso and Mark Smith took the Scepter to Sokovia from S.H.I.E.L.D. S.T.A.T.I.O.N. and delivered it to Wolfgang von Strucker and Doctor List. He explained to Smith that HYDRA had a base of operations in that country as it developed outside of the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D.

When List started testing the power of the scepter on human beings, Basso explained to Smith that HYDRA would no longer need to hide once Project Insight was activated.[1]
