James Q. Reed was an undercover Hydra agent infiltrated into S.H.I.E.L.D. who blew himself up at the base station of the Planetary Defense Shield in order to damage it.[1]

It turned out the damage caused by Reed's explosion was mostly superficial, and simply served the purpose to allow Hydra's supreme leader Captain America to tamper with it and conceal the ensuing deliberate failings he used as part of his plan to cast out of the Earth Alpha Flight and other heavy hitter superheroes during his process to take over the world.[1]
