Wendell Levi was a talented, psychopathic computer hacker and longtime associate of Cal. His activities eventually garnered the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D.. They implanted a chip into his arm that prevented him from coming close to any advanced technology.

He wound up living in an RV in the Mojave desert, where Cal eventually found him to be the first recruit in his personal crusade against S.H.I.E.L.D. and its new director Phil Coulson. Cal removed the implant from his arm, and Wendell decrypted S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Gifted Index for him. Cal used this information to find Francis Noche, a former mob enforcer gifted with super strength after he took an experimental steroid, Karla Faye Gideon, who grafted razors to her fingers to fight an abusive boyfriend, and David A. Angar, whose voice induces catatonia in anyone who hears it since his vocal chords were subjected to an experimental cancer treatment. Cal used Wendell's skills to remove any braces or handicaps S.H.I.E.L.D. put on these three to minimize how much of a threat they posed to others.

Cal took his team to Manitowoc, Wisconsin, Director Coulson's home town, where he would stage his showdown with S.H.I.E.L.D.. He had Angar stand in the middle of the local high school's football field and scream, knocking out all of the nearby students. Cal and Wendell waited in the announcer's booth while Angar, Karla, and Francis held the students hostage. Wendell was left in charge of controlling the lights and other electronics around the field.

Coulson eventually arrived, and Cal left the booth to face him in person. Before anything could happen, Cal disappeared in a field of blue light, and Coulson used the confusion to his advantage to take down Angar. Two other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents battled Francis and Karla. Wendell realized they were done for, and tried to escape. Coulson ran him down, however, and took him and the other members of Cal's team back into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody.[1]
