- "How'd you get your hands on this, Vanchat?"
"It's what I do... Find alien scrap that no one else can, then offer to people who fully appreciate my efforts."
- ―Emily Deville and Vanchat
T. Vanchat is a notorious international criminal that has often come to the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D..
Following the Battle of New York, Vanchat specialized himself in obtaining samples of alien technology and metals, selling them in the black market. Therefore, Agent Grant Ward was tasked with obtaining a Chitauri Neural Link that had come into Vanchat's possession.
S.H.I.E.L.D. needed information from Vanchat as to the whereabouts of missing Agent Phil Coulson, who had been abducted by the Centipede Project. Vanchat was, among other things, a dealer in alien metals, and the Centipede Group utilized his services in obtaining the Chitauri metal used in constructing their Centipede Devices.
Vanchat was interrogated in the Cage of the Bus but unwilling to provide any information until Agent Grant Ward threatened to open the airlock. After giving S.H.I.E.L.D. everything they needed, Vanchat was taken to the Fridge for holding.
- Springfield XD: Vanchat used this gun during his attempt to escape from S.H.I.E.L.D., shooting at Melinda May while she pursued him and to the D.W.A.R.F.s that were blocking his path. May took the weapon from him as he was captured at the rooftop of the building, where a full Strike Team led by Victoria Hand was waiting for him.
