The Banker was one of the leaders of HYDRA after the HYDRA Uprising. He was killed during S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Assassination of HYDRA Leaders.


Roundtable Discussion

"I was never fond of him."
"We must not speak ill of the dead."
"Why? What's he going to do about it?"
―Banker and Sheikh[src]

The Banker attended the biannual roundtable meeting of HYDRA leaders that was hosted in the mansion of Octavian Bloom. Among the other attendees were the Sheikh, the Baroness, and Doctor List, representing Baron Wolfgang von Strucker.


Banker raises his glass to Dr. Whitehall

As wine was poured to give a toast to Daniel Whitehall joining the Red Skull in the afterlife, the Banker refused to have his glass filled. After the toast, the Banker admitted that he did not like Whitehall. The Banker wanted to replace Whitehall as leader of his faction; however, the others wanted the same. List decided that whoever destroyed S.H.I.E.L.D. before it could make its move against them would have the position. The Banker and the others agreed.[1]



Banker is assassinated by HYDRA

Octavian Bloom and Sunil Bakshi sent a kill-order for the Banker to be terminated. Lance Hunter lied to Bakshi telling him that he was sent to kill him so that he could not take his rightful place as Daniel Whitehall's replacement.

An accountant received the order and waited for the Banker to go inside an elevator, and attacked him using a Splinter Bomb, that made the Banker disintegrate.[1]
