- "You're selling us a needle in a haystack."
"Finding the haystack is up to you, I know your reputation; I'm sure you'll be fine. What I don't appreciate is you changing the terms on me now."
- ―Isabelle Hartley and Roger Browning
Browning was approached by Isabelle Hartley and Lance Hunter, who were working undercover for the new S.H.I.E.L.D. led by Phil Coulson, about information concerning an 0-8-4. Coulson and Melinda May had hoped that he could be recruited or, at least, sell to them his technologies. Browning did not bring the 0-8-4, but a file on it. During their meeting, they were attacked by Carl Creel who stole the file and killed Browning.
