Origin

Cornell Gray was a resident of Cape Town, South Africa,

As Gray was listed as an untapped superhuman which he could use in his secret war against Hydra and Leviathan, Nick Fury recruited him and assigned him to Team Black of his Caterpillars, where all of the more problematic recruits were sent and which was led by Alexander Pierce.[2]

Team Black was deployed to take part in a joint attack on Hydra's Hell's Heaven base in China along with the Howling Commandos PMC.[3] The mission was successful with Team Black taking point on the infiltration of the base, allowing for a bomb to be detonated destroying the base.[4] With their mission complete, Team Black made their own separate exit, not realizing that the Commandos would suffer a devastating battle against Hydra forces after they left.[5]

Having won his secret war against Hydra and Leviathan, Nick Fury pulled together all of the surviving members of the Secret Warriors and Howling Commandos together into a new organization sponsored by the United Nations. Team Black now served in this organization under the overall command of Quake.[6]

S.H.I.E.L.D.

Grey was later part of the Moth Squadron, along with fellow Caterpillars Ellis (from Team Black) and Slingshot (Yo-Yo), along with Kellam and another agent, led by Quake. Together, they monitored New Attilan.[1]

While on this assignment, they were re-dispatched by Captain America (secretly leader of Hydra) to Baltimore Harbor, to investigate a base, where they were ambushed by the Wrecking Crew. He was killed in the brawl along all his team, save for Quake.[1]

Powers

Parasitic Brain Described as having a parasitic brain, Cornell Gray hides mouth-like growths on the palms of his bandaged hands. His parasitic ability allows him to pull information out of sentient beings, and there are perhaps other abilities yet to be shown.

S.H.I.E.L.D. Uniforms[1]

Weapons

S.H.I.E.L.D.-issued gun[1]

  • His mutation is similar to Emplate's, though there is no known connection to Emplate nor is it implied that Gray is a mutant.
