However, Chan had gone mad from the torture inflicted upon him and became hostile to S.H.I.E.L.D.'s intervention. While attempting to provide aid to Chan, Quan was instantly killed when Chan turned on the S.H.I.E.L.D. team and burned a hole through Quan's torso.

As compensation for Quan's death, Coulson ensured that Quan's family was given the million dollars that Miles Lydon would have received.[1]
