Russo was assigned as executive officer to one of the three Insight Helicarriers that was owned by S.H.I.E.L.D. Upon the launch of Project Insight, Russo had command of his helicarrier and ordered the initiation of Arnim Zola's Algorithm, to begin the targeting of all of HYDRA's anticipated enemies within range of the launching weapon platforms. After Captain America managed to switch out control of the targeting, the helicarriers switched their targets down to three and began to fire upon each other. Russo was inevitably killed in the resulting destruction as the helicarriers fell, flaming, into the Potomac River.
