Alexander Cady was a member of the reinstituted Red Room, which had relocated in America. He was behind the cloning program that resulted in the creation of a clone of the Black Widow following her death at the hands of Captain America.

Cady became the handler of Black Widow's clone following her creation, though he was unaware she retained all of the original Widow's memories, since Red Room agent Ursa Major secretly interfered in the process that was supposed to give her only a selected few of the original Natasha Romanoff's memories. On Alexander's behalf, Black Widow targeted the remnants of both Hydra and S.H.I.E.L.D..

Black Widow eventually found out about the Red Room's cloning program and that she was a clone herself, and started working against her handlers. After faking the death of her latest target, former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Sally Blevins, Black Widow approached Alexander at his home in Second Avenue and killed him. She pinned the murder on the Winter Soldier by leaving at the scene of the crime a mark that served as his calling card from his time in the Red Room.[1]

Alexander's body was found not long after his death by the Winter Soldier and Hawkeye, who had been investigating the Black Widow's sightings and were looking into her supposed return.[2]
