George Talbot was with his parents as they walked through Potomac Plaza in Washington, D.C. discussing his future. The eleven-year old told his parents that since he liked boats, he wanted to be in the Navy. After Antoine Triplett planted a phone on Glenn so Phil Coulson could warn him about Carl Creel, George was grabbed by his mother and told to flee.
George's ability to spread germs was the excuse that Agent 33 used, when disguised as Carla Talbot, to justify why her voice did not sound correct when asked by a guard in Glenn Talbot's office. He was called a "germ factory".
Kidnapping by HYDRA
In an attempt to blackmail George's father Glenn Talbot, who had been appointed at the head of the ATCU, George was kidnapped by HYDRA operatives sent by Gideon Malick. He was put in stasis in a Suspension Gel Chamber and hidden in a truck at the Symposium on Alien Contagion. Eventually, George was found by S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Lance Hunter, who informed his colleagues. Although the HYDRA operatives briefly managed to escape, they were caught up by Melinda May, who successfully rescued George. George was taken to the Zephyr One for recovery, and his rescue cemented a slightly stronger alliance between Talbot and Phil Coulson.
