"Hey, what are you doing?"
Andrew Garner to the HYDRA Assassin[src]

The HYDRA Assassin was one of Grant Ward's HYDRA operatives until he was killed during a mission by his target Andrew Garner.


Attack on Andrew Garner

Under the orders of Grant Ward, the HYDRA Assassin joined another agent and Werner von Strucker in cornering Andrew Garner in a store. The assassin filmed Garner for a live feed that Ward showed to Melinda May back at his HYDRA Base while Strucker threatened Garner and an Arsonist locked the door and began pouring gasoline over the floor ready to burn the shop down.[1]


The Assassin is killed by Lash

Before Garner could be killed, a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent tried to defend him shooting the assassin in the shoulder. However, the HYDRA Arsonist was able to gun him down. To their shock, Garner then transformed into his true Inhuman form of Lash and proceeded to kill his attackers, blasting a hole in the HYDRA Assassin's chest and killing him instantly.[2]
