A prominent U.S. Senator, Stivak also became involved with the criminal Corporation. Stivak headed the Eastern United States branch and tried unsuccessfully to kill Captain America on several occasions. Captain America had been determined to be a thorn in the group's side. Stivak was also romantically linked to one of his operatives Denise Baranger. Baranger had infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. and had become a part of their new SHIELD Super-Agents program.[citation needed]

Stivak believed the overthrow of the U.S. Government was imminent. He faked his own death and moved to the Corporation West Coast Headquarters at Alcatraz. Unfortunately for the Senator, the Corporation was soon defeated by Captain America, the Falcon, Marvel Man, and the the Incredible Hulk. Sensing his defeat and subsequent national humiliation, Stivak asked Corporation West Chairman Curtiss Jackson to kill him. Stating the "Corporation Takes Care of its Own", Jackson gladly filled Stivak's body with bullets.[citation needed]

  • In early appearances, Stivak goes by his middle name, "Kligger". [1]
