In 1958, the Agents of Atlas rushed to save Kit Sekum, but the Air Force didn't get the message in time and the plane was destroyed. J. Edgar Hoover took a personal interest in the case, sending the two canisters with Captain America and Bucky in them back to the archives and confiscating the red triangles. When Agent Jimmy Woo asked if Hoover trusts them, Hoover decided that their team has outlived its usefulness. Department Zero is no more.
