Rodriguez is a former Vice President of the United States, ranking below President Matthew Ellis. By 2012, Rodriguez was associated with A.I.M., and utilized his power for corruption, helping aid the cover-ups for the Mandarin terrorist attacks.
Rodriguez had become associated with A.I.M. since he wanted to help and give his daughter a new leg. He did anything he could to help A.I.M., including giving them the location of Matthew Ellis at all times. Tony Stark and James Rhodes tried to tell Rodriguez information about A.I.M.'s plan to attack Ellis but he told no one and kept it to himself. Later, Rodriguez' betrayal was discovered, so he was arrested.
