In 1942, the SS general Johann Schmidt invaded Tønsberg, Norway, hoping to find the Tesseract, an object of unlimited power. The lieutenant followed his general. When the HYDRA soldiers broke into the ancient church, the lieutenant ordered them to open the old sarcophagus. However, the Tesseract inside the sarcophagus was fake, and Schmidt dropped it to crash on the floor. However, a few moments later, Schmidt found the real Tesseract, and after killing the old guardian, Schmidt, the lieutenant, and their men departed.
