Broseph Simpkins the Seventh, better known as Snapper, was a life-form created by M.O.D.O.K. to be his assistant. Before joining S.H.I.E.L.D., M.O.D.O.K. and Snapper launched an operation to betray Maria Hill and destroy the organization as soon as they became part of it, under the belief that bullies had to be dealt with, and S.H.I.E.L.D. was "all about [bullies]."[1] M.O.D.O.K. and Snapper sent the android known as The Fury to the mysterious Tlön to see what would come back, and later placed it on the Misericordia, a S.H.I.E.L.D. satellite, to kill agents Fury and Coulson.[2] He later hired a Latverian assassin who tried and failed to kill Maria Hill to instill her the idea that someone was coming for her.

However, M.O.D.O.K. found himself having fallen in love with Maria Hill, and backed down from his plan.[1] As soon as Maria Hill's suspicions were confirmed, she tried to confront M.O.D.O.K., but he had disappeared from the Helicarrier.[3] Meanwhile, Snapper had carried on with M.O.D.O.K.'s plan and kidnapped Maria Hill.

In the Venezuelan Rainforest, Snapper planned to unleash the monsters from Tlön on the Earth.[2] He set up a chain of people to be used as mediums for Tlön's rise, forming a communal mindscape that used emotional negativity to create a gate for this purpose. Maria Hill was placed in the center of it. When M.O.D.O.K. and the Secret Avengers arrived to stop him, Snapper tagged him with a transmission conductor, turning him into another medium.[4] During the emergence of the monstrosities from Tlön, Spider-Woman used her pheromones to emotionally subdue Snapper. The rest of the Secret Avengers tagged themselves with transmission conductors to infiltrate the mindscape and imagine the best possible universe and try to outweigh the negativity of Tlön. When everything was coming apart at the seams, the final part of M.O.D.O.K.'s plan to defeat Snapper was put in motion, and the sentient bomb Vladimir was dropped on the portal to Tlön. Vladimir opened a black hole which in contact with the Tlön gate created a singularity, reverting everything back to normal.[5]

Snapper was subsequently put in a rehabilitation program with a shaman in Peru.[6]
