Alexander Pierce majored at S.H.I.E.L.D. (Supreme Headquarters International Espionage Law-Enforcement Division) Academy in civilian surveillance and served in S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Accounting Department before becoming a "sleeper Agent" of S.H.I.E.L.D. as an expert in decoding Class A dispatches from the subversive organization HYDRA.

When S.H.I.E.L.D. was secretly taken over by the Deltites, artificially created duplicates of human beings, the Deltites forced S.H.I.E.L.D. Public Director Nick Fury into the role of a renegade and fugitive. Fury recruited Pierce to function as his right hand man. Together they perpetrated a series of break-ins at S.H.I.E.L.D. installations, including a Class C Armory and Communications Station in Philadelphia. The information they acquired was carefully leaked and inaccurate.

Pierce functioned as a contact between Nick Fury and industrialist Tony Stark (secretly the hero Iron Man) before accompanying Fury to Hong Kong following false leads in search of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s stolen Helicarrier Power Core.

After escaping death in an ambush at Hydra's Hong Kong base, Pierce accompanied Fury to the Himalayas, along with their prisoner, Madame Hydra. Unable to withstand the bitter cold, they were saved from certain death when they were seized by the Deltites and brought to S.H.I.E.L.D.'s orbiting satellite. Aided by Madame Hydra, Pierce and a group of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents escaped and took part in the battle that led to the destruction of the Deltites.

Following the subsequent disbanding of S.H.I.E.L.D., Pierce served as caretaker of the skyscraper that once served as its headquarters. He was then contacted for help by Nick Fury aid him and his allies in vanquishing the Death's Head Squad. He has since joined the new version of S.H.I.E.L.D. Fury has organized.
