Mike Li was an agent of the Strategic Scientific Reserve that accompanied Peggy Carter and Jack Thompson in a mission to Russia. He was shot and killed by a young assassin named Eva during a firefight.
Mike Li was chosen by Jack Thompson to accompany him and Rick Ramirez on a mission to Belarus to apprehend Howard Stark; the Remote Typewriter sent a message that was interpreted that the fugitive inventor was there. While changing for the mission, Thompson came into the men's locker room with Peggy Carter who also needed to prep for the assignment. He and Ramirez acted embarrassed, commented that even though they had sisters, none of them looked like Carter.
Daniel Sousa entered the locker room bringing intelligence files for the mission. Thompson told Sousa that he lacked a compass which could be found in the next row of lockers. Sousa did not know that Peggy Carter was there; Li, Ramirez and Thompson began to giggle as Sousa went to retrieve the compass. Li and the others laughed loudly as Sousa and Carter were embarrassed when Souza saw Carter in her undergarments.
Meeting the Howling Commandoes
Li and the others parachuted to the ground. As they searched for the 107th Regiment, who was appointed to meet them, they heard a noise and Li aimed his gun. After an awkward exchange in which the password was confused between "emu" or "ostrich", Dum Dum Dugan appeared; the eyes of Li brightened to see the famous soldier. Behind him came from the bushes the other Howling Commandos, Li stood in awe of his idols. Carter gave introductions. Ramirez noted that Dugan fought beside Captain America; Dugan told him that Peggy Carter fought with him longer.
Raid on Russian Base
The next morning, Li and the rest of the team prepared to raid the Russian base; it was decided that Li would join Peggy Carter, Dum Dum Dugan and Junior Juniper. As they explored the base, they discovered it full of classrooms with recordings of American children's shows. Highly confused, they continued through the base, finding a series of children's beds with handcuffs on the sides.
Dugan discovered a young girl named Eva hiding; when he tried to comfort her, she stabbed him in the chest and killed Juniper with Dugan's gun before escaping. Having heard the gunshot, Jack Thompson arrived with his team and they discussed what to do next. It was decided that Carter would continue to lead her team, with Thompson and Rick Ramirez joining them. They eventually found two Russians in a prison cell who introduced themselves as Ivchenko and Nikola. Nikola was a genius scientist and Ivchenko was his psychiatrist. Carter freed the pair and they made their way through the base until the Russian soldiers caught them and attacked.
As the team made a retreat from the incoming army of Russian soldiers, they soon became trapped in the boiler room. Peggy Carter made a desperate call to Dum Dum Dugan for assistance but he failed to answer. Li called out to Carter but Eva appeared behind him and before he could react, she shot him in the back of the head, killing Li instantly.
