Bridge became a major of S.H.I.E.L.D. In the early stages of X-Force, Bridge tracked Cable and tried to capture him. S.H.I.E.L.D. formed an alliance with Department K to fund a joint task force called Weapon P.R.I.M.E. to bring Cable down. Along with former Six Pack members Kane and Grizzly, plus other recruits, Bridge attacked X-Force in an attempt to arrest Cable. Weapon P.R.I.M.E. failed, and X-Force made off in Bridge's own air transport.
After Cable was presumed dead, Bridge and Nick Fury led a squad into space to lay claim to Graymalkin, but they were repelled by X-Force. Quitting S.H.I.E.L.D. after this and the Weapon P.R.I.M.E. fiasco, Bridge went looking for Cable on his own. They met up as Cable returned from his future timeline to his Swiss chalet, and mostly buried the hatchet. G.W. joined up with the former Six Pack members as they parted ways with Cable.
During the Civil War, or shortly after, Bridge briefly became the leader of the Six Pack again and was hired by the US government to attack Rumekistan, a country which Cable had temporarily seized power in, with the approval of the people, and was trying to make a utopia before scheduled free elections began. Cable's attention was diverted by a nuclear explosion on Providence so that Bridge and the Six Pack could make their way covertly into the country as insurgents. They placed devices which would cause chaos with the power grid to destabilise the country and work towards tarnishing Cable's reputation while S.H.I.E.L.D. lied to the media about radioactive fallout caused by the 'accident' on Providence. Bridge and the Six Pack were unaware that Cable knew of their plans and allowed them to happen so he could defeat and expose them, so as to cement his stature with the people. Bridge and the team were then captured and publicly shamed for their actions.
After the Civil War, Bridge tried to capture and stop the Punisher and failed while working with S.H.I.E.L.D. team. He began working alone and at Times Square, he tried to trick the Punisher by releasing and paying Bushwacker to act as bait. The operation was a failure as everyone forgot the situation, watching coverage of the Captain America assassination on the giant Time Square screen after Bushwacker was taken down and Bridge was deputised while dealing with the situation. A second operation was conducted by Bridge and Sitwell, failing too.
After this, Tony Stark, director of S.H.I.E.L.D., dismissed him from his functions due to his failures and the actions he had taken, this didn't stop Bridge as he quickly returned to tracking the Punisher as a freelance operative covertly offering bounty hunters a million dollars for information leading him to the Punisher.
Contacted by Stuart Clarke, he helped them take down the racist white nationalist National Force group who were led by a new Hate-Monger, and let Clarke and Castle free to leave when they surrendered. He was quickly contacted by Stark but took pleasure in refusing his proposition. When Stark came to see him to try and convince him to start working with S.H.I.E.L.D. again he admitted to letting the Punisher go, and to his internal struggles regarding his hate for the Punisher and ultimately agreed to come back into the fold, as long as he had his 'crew' working alongside him.
With the fall of the S.H.I.E.L.D, Bridge no longer had money to feed his new wife and her child. Abducted by some of the criminals resurrected in order to kill Castle, he was finally killed by the resurrected Microchip as a sacrifice for the resurrection of Frank Castle and Microchip's families.
